2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Comparatively large (tall) for the display size, which can make it cumbersome to carry around in your pocket
  • Power button, and volume rocker are awkward to reach
  • Lot of bloatware
  • Software features to make the big screen more manageable (like those in similar Samsung and LG phones) are largely missing
  • Tends to heat up
  • Tends to overheat when put under stress (during gaming, watching videos, etc)
  • Gets hindered from operating at peak performance due to thermal throttling down
