phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 3 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Attractive, premium glass & metal design
  • Panasonic's UI on top of Android adds some useful features like Turbo Download, and display colour tuning
  • Decent front and rear cameras
  • Decent battery life - light use should easily get you through the day

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Lots of pre-loaded bloatware (although these apps can be uninstalled)
  • No fingerprint scanner
  • Performance with basic use is good but the mid-range processor struggles with intensive tasks - falling behind some of the Snapdragon 650 powered competition in this price bracket
