PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 3 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Aesthetic, refined design, and premium chassis feel
  • Waterproof body
  • Beautiful large display - well suited to media consumption
  • Polished, feature-rich UI
  • Very good performance - backed by a chipset powerful enough for you multitasking needs, and at the same time extremely efficient
  • Very good call quality
  • Good loudspeaker - it's nice and clear at maximum volume too
  • Amazing battery life - comfortably one of the best in this price bracket - if you need a weekend warrior with a large screen, this is it

What We Didn't

  • The glass chassis can be fragile, so you will probably be well advised to use a case
  • There is some color temperature shifting when tilting the display
  • Camera is decent but could be better - pictures are a bit on the soft side
  • No support for 4K video recording, or OIS
