phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 9 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Super slim
  • Water proof
  • Great build quality
  • Beautiful display with Full HD resolution, vivid colors, great contrast, wide viewing angles, and good outdoor visibility
  • Gigantic size of the display makes watching videos, and browsing the web, a beautiful experience
  • Android interface with Sony's customizations
  • Useful 'Small Apps' functionality
  • Blazing fast, breathtaking performance
  • Decent camera
  • Great music player
  • Decent battery life
  • Use any pen/pencil as stylus

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • One handed operation is almost impossible with such a large device, and pocket-ability is also a big issue - this device is not created to be easily portable
  • Earpiece sound is a bit on the weak side
