Design

  • Good, elegant design and build quality
  • Relatively slim, and lightweight
  • Very large - operating the phone with one hand is always going to be a problem

Display

  • Good display with nice viewing angles and sunlight legibility

Software

  • Android interface with Sony skin, which is clean and user-friendly
  • Lot of bloatware

Performance

  • Smooth, slick performance

Camera

  • Decent primary (back) camera
  • Good 5 MP front camera for selfies with 25mm wide-angle lens, and soft LED flash

Audio

  • Good call quality
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Average bundled earphones

Battery

  • Excellent battery life (lasts 2 days on moderate use)

More

  • One-handed operation option/setting is not as useful as that of LG or Samsung phablets
