phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 14 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Beautiful, premium design, and solid build
  • Excellent display with nice color temperature and contrast, wide viewing angles, and good outdoor visibility
  • Huge screen size means that the phone is perfect for web browsing, and watching videos
  • Simple, intuitive, and elegant HTC Sense overlay over Android
  • Smooth, slick performance
  • Lots of useful software add-ons like BlinkFeed, car mode, kid mode
  • Brilliant stereo loudspeakers
  • Good call quality
  • Very good battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Huge size means the phone is almost impossible to use with a single hand, and difficult to carry around
  • The implementation of the fingerprint scanner (to unlock the phone) is not the best (requires swiping your finger), and it's position (on the back of the phone, under the camera) is inconvenient
  • Average camera
  • Uses Snapdragon 600 processor, instead of the current top-of-the-line Snapdragon 800
