2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 13+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Beautiful, slick glass and metal design
  • Looks stunning and feels extremely luxurious to hold
  • Waterproof (even lets you take snaps underwater)
  • A bit bulky

Display

  • Glorious, top-of-the-line display - bright, with rich, vibrant colours, plenty of contrast and excellent viewing angles

Software

  • Android interface with Sony customizations, gives a streamlined and polished user experience

Performance

  • Power packed performance backed by top-line hardware
  • Excellent gaming performance

Camera

  • Good, feature packed camera
  • Dedicated camera shutter button
  • 4K video recording feature is iffy and tends to heat up the phone

Audio

  • Average loudspeaker

Battery

  • Decent battery life

More

  • Great music output
  • Comes with free SmartBand for tracking fitness metrics
  • Glass panels make it rather more susceptible to scratches from keys in your pocket (so buying a case is a good idea)
