phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 6 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Unique, minimalist design
  • Polycarbonate-made, scratch- and fingerprint-resistant back cover
  • UI theme matching depending on the color of the back cover
  • Sailfish OS is colorful, minimalist, and pleasant to look at
  • Decent, lag-free performance in daily use
  • Good integration with social networks
  • Decent call quality

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Sharp corners, which on prolonged use tend to dig into your palm and don't feel very nice
  • Average display, lacking in auto-brightness adjustment
  • Sailfish OS with its gesture based UI is a steep learning curve
  • Poor app support - the official Google Play Store is not supported, and alternative Android app stores provide limited choice - many key apps are missing
  • Average web browser
  • Average camera
  • Average battery life
