summarizing opinion across 11 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Excellent build quality
  • Beautiful, striking aesthetics with a polycarbonate body
  • Delivers a pleasing level of grip and comfort, with a soft matte finish
  • Good fingerprint scanner
  • Good display - bright and clear - ensuring videos and games look great
  • HTC's Sense UI is one of the better Android overlays around, allowing you to customize your home screens with various themes and stickers for a personal touch, while at the same time keeping things simple
  • Smooth, lag-free performance
  • Good rear camera - same as the one on HTC One M9, and even adding laser autofocus to the mix
  • Good front camera which has an HDR mode and a selfie panorama mode, allowing you to get even more buddies into your shots
  • Good audio quality especially when listening via headphones
  • Decent battery life - lasts a full day in general usage, and there's fast charging (0 to 100 per cent in a little over 90 minutes) for when it runs low

What We Didn't

  • While general performance is great, gaming performance is not top-of-the-line for this price range
  • Misses out on some features like a Type-C USB connector, NFC, and Wi-Fi ac, that are usually now expected in this price bracket
