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

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Very well built, with a nice, balanced design
  • Excellent compact dimensions - ideal for one-handed use
  • Ergonomic in-hand fit
  • Fast-acting fingerprint reader built right into the power button - which is one of the more intelligent placements that you will find
  • Decent display - bright and vibrant
  • UI is simple, friendly, and mostly works well
  • Convenient dedicated camera button
  • Good front camera, with a wide sensor
  • Good rear camera with accurate colors, that takes good pictures in most conditions
  • Nice, built-in battery-saving mode, and the handset charges up in under two hours thanks to Qualcomm's quick-charge 2.0 standard
  • Decent overall battery life
  • Impressive audio quality

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Overall speed/performance is good, but not flagship-class
  • Has occasional heating issues, which cause the phone to lag or crash
  • Lot of bloatware comes pre-installed
