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

  • Classy metal-slab Sony design
  • Good fingerprint scanner

Display

  • Decent display with excellent numbers for brightness and contrast
  • The display is decent but sunlight legibility and color rendition could have been better

Software

  • Vanilla Android UI with the most subtle of Sony customizations will please purists, and keeps things nice and simple

Performance

  • Good performance, backed by the Helio P20 (comparable to other mid-range chipsets - Exynos 7870, Snapdragon 625 or Kirin 658)

Camera

  • Decent 23MP rear camera - delivers reasonable detail, pleasing colors and wide dynamic range
  • The 8MP front-facing shooter is decent too - it captures nicely detailed selfies with decent dynamic range and true to life skin tones
  • Video recording performance of the camera is not the best - detail is on the low side, and there is no support for 4K videos

Audio

  • Good single loudspeaker - pumps out more than enough decibels

Battery

  • Great battery life - one of the best in this price bracket - will comfortably last the day even with heavy use
