phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 8 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Excellent build quality, with a polycarbonate body
  • Good looking, industrial design
  • Matte finish polycarbonate back cover provides a really good grip
  • Good display - natural looking colors, great contrast levels, decent viewing angles and good brightness levels
  • Slick, minimalist Windows Phone interface
  • Good speed/performance in daily use
  • Good primary camera - images are sharp and detailed and the colors are true to life
  • Very good secondary (selfie) camera with wide angle lens
  • Good audio quality
  • Good video playback quality
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good call quality
  • Very good battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Large size means that single handed operation is difficult
  • From the sides, the phone has sharp edges that will dig into your palms, which can make it uncomfortable to hold over long periods of time
  • The Windows Phone platform continues to suffer from a limited app selection, when compared to Android, or iOS
