Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 8 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Classy and understated design elements
  • Very good build quality
  • Nice display with sharp details, high pixel density of 323 ppi, neutral color production, and acceptable viewing angles
  • Android interface skinned with Sony's UI
  • Good camera
  • Great video player
What we didn't
  • Capacitive buttons feel unresponsive at times
  • Power, volume, and camera buttons are barely raised and difficult to feel out
  • No light sensor, for automatic brightness
  • Browser has some noticeable jerkiness with pinch zooming and kinetic scrolling
  • Loud speaker is mediocre with its distorted tones and weak volume output
  • Low volume earpiece
