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

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality
  • Good design - phone looks impressive with a nearly bezel free display
  • Good ergonomics - despite having a large size, the device is quite comfortable to hold
  • Good display - bright, vivid, and has good saturation levels, and viewing angles
  • Close-to-stock Android, Sony's UI is lean and fast with some useful add-ons
  • Very good speed/performance
  • Good rear camera takes detailed, good-looking pictures with largely accurate color reproduction
  • Great secondary (front) camera - arguably takes the best selfie images to date
  • Excellent call quality
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good video playback
  • Good battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • No major negatives
