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

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Excellent build quality
  • Beautiful, premium design, with a metal frame
  • Compact, and comfortable to use one-handed
  • Bright and sharp screen, with good viewing angles
  • Under-the-hood OS support for key security features, such as virtual private networks (VPNs), mobile device management (MDM) and data encryption
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Quite underpowered, relative to the top performing Android phones in this price range
  • Average camera (especially video recording is poor)
  • Windows 10 is still a bit rough around the edges
  • Microsoft's app store continues to be very under-stocked compared to that of Android and iOS
