phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 15 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Clean, minimalist design
  • Solid build, good ergonomics
  • Beautiful, high-resolution display
  • KitKat is a nice step up for Android and brings a sleeker/cleaner dark/white gray theme, and deeper Google Now integration
  • Slick, fast performance backed by top-end hardware
  • Excellent web browsing experience
  • Good video playback
  • Decent camera performance
  • Decent battery life
  • Direct Android updates from Google!

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Some people might find the design a bit too subdued, and simple, for a flagship phone
  • Average loudspeaker
