WHAT WE LIKED
  • Great build quality
  • Nice, premium design with aluminum and magnesium chassis
  • Good ergonomics
  • Very good display - bright, sharp and has very good viewing angles and good color reproduction
  • Cyanogen OS on top of Android is a great experience and rich in features and customizations
  • Good speed/performance, and seamless multitasking
  • Good camera
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent loudspeaker

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Metal back is quite slippery, so using a case would be a good idea
  • Fingerprint sensor is a bit of a hit-or-miss affair
  • Battery life could have been better
