What We Liked

  • Excellent build quality
  • Premium, classy design - one of the best looking smartphones in this price bracket
  • Beautiful, full-metal body
  • Very good display - vivid, sharp, and has good sunlight legibility
  • HTC Sense is one of the better looking and better performing Android UIs around
  • Smooth overall performance
  • Good rear camera
  • Very good call quality
  • Playing music and watching movies, even without earphones is a great experience thanks to the BoomSound support on the loudspeaker
  • Acceptable battery life - lasts through the day, with moderate use

What We Didn't

  • No fingerprint scanner
  • Lacks a good grip, so using a case would be a good idea
  • The front side of the phone, being all-glass, is a smudge magnet
