phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 13 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Beautiful, slick glass and metal design
  • Looks stunning and feels extremely luxurious to hold
  • Waterproof (even lets you take snaps underwater)
  • Glorious, top-of-the-line display - bright, with rich, vibrant colours, plenty of contrast and excellent viewing angles
  • Android interface with Sony customizations, gives a streamlined and polished user experience
  • Power packed performance backed by top-line hardware
  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Good, feature packed camera
  • Dedicated camera shutter button
  • Great music output
  • Decent battery life
  • Comes with free SmartBand for tracking fitness metrics

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • A bit bulky
  • Glass panels make it rather more susceptible to scratches from keys in your pocket (so buying a case is a good idea)
  • Average loudspeaker
  • 4K video recording feature is iffy and tends to heat up the phone
