phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 4 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality
  • Attractive design
  • Gorgeous 5.5-inch QHD display - sharp, with neutral colors, excellent viewing angles, and one of the highest contrast ratios
  • Beautiful Sense UI over Android
  • Good speed/performance overall
  • Very capable gallery and music player
  • Decent camera
  • Very good audio quality
  • Very good call quality

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Large size (The body is unnecessarily tall for the screen size, especially considering that the bottom speaker grille is only a design element)
  • Weak GPU (compared to CPU) means that gaming performance suffers
  • Average battery life
