Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 11 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Good build quality (though, not quite as premium as the iPhone 5S)
  • Compact in-the-hand feel
  • Beautiful display with incredibly accurate colors, excellent brightness output, and great viewing angles
  • iOS 7 is a nice evolution from the previous version, and is as simple, and intuitive as ever
  • Snappy, fluid performance
  • Great on-screen keyboard
  • Excellent web browser
  • Very good camera
  • Excellent call quality
  • Many color options
  • iOS app ecosystem still remains unparalleled
What we didn't
  • Small screen size compared to other flagship phones, means that the video/photo viewing experience is not quite as immersive
  • Not as future-proof as the 5s
