2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • High quality build
  • Beautiful, elegant design, with an excellent metal frame and polycarbonate sides
  • Excellent overall ergonomics - all its proportions (width, thickness, weight) are just right, with the front and back neatly curving into the sides
  • No fingerprint sensor

Display

  • The slimmest 5-inch phone to date
  • Display could have had better resolution

Software

  • Sony's UI is clean and elegant and the themes are a fun way to spruce it up
  • Sony's bespoke media apps are a welcome addition to the package

Performance

  • Solid, all-round performance from the chipset in daily tasks
  • Although day-to-day performance is decent, but heavier tasks/games make the phone stutter

Camera

  • Decent screen with good colors, and contrast
  • Both the front and back cameras deliver decent quality and produce sharp images with plenty of dynamic range
  • Video recording quality is decent too
  • The camera is a bit slow, especially in the HDR mode

Audio

  • Good audio quality
  • Average loudspeaker

Battery

  • Fast charging support on the battery
  • Average battery life

More

  • The phone is a grease magnet
