2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • A bit bulky
  • Glass panels make it rather more susceptible to scratches from keys in your pocket (so buying a case is a good idea)
  • Average loudspeaker
  • 4K video recording feature is iffy and tends to heat up the phone
  • Tends to overheat when put under stress (during gaming, watching videos, etc)
  • Gets hindered from operating at peak performance due to thermal throttling down
