2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 3 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Nice, understated looks and premium build quality
  • The massive chin and forehead design may not be everyone's cup of tea
  • No fingerprint scanner

Display

  • Decent display - above average brightness and reasonably sharp

Software

  • The user experience is typical Xperia - near-stock Android with extensive theming support and a few added features like the Stamina battery saving modes
  • Sony's multimedia apps are especially good - TrackID nicely complements the FM radio

Performance

  • The Helio P20 chipset is a snappy performer in both CPU and GPU-intense tasks - its performance is on par with the likes of Snapdragon 625, Exynos 7880 and Kirin 658 and it's also nicely power efficient in comparison to the Helio P10

Camera

  • Good 23MP primary camera - colors are accurate, dynamic range is adequately wide, and detail levels are good
  • The 8MP front-facing camera is decent too, as long as light conditions are good
  • The 1080p video recording quality is pretty average - videos turn out quite soft and noisy

Audio

  • The single loudspeaker is decent though could have been louder

Battery

  • Good all-day battery life

More

  • The narrow body aids adds comfort in single-handed use
  • The taller body aspect ratio feels especially nice when you are holding the phone to your ear
