phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 1 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good looking, elegant design
  • Good display
  • Simple, near-stock Android interface, with no bloatware
  • Good speed/performance
  • Useful "Float Task" widget for easy access to shortcuts
  • Good battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • A bit heavy at 160g
  • Bundled accessories are of average quality - the USB cable that comes in the box is extremely thin, the charger feels flimsy, and the headset not only feels cheap but is also uncomfortable in your ears
  • Below average camera
  • Average audio quality via both loudspeaker, and headphones
  • Random issues when connecting to a PC via a USB cable
