summarizing opinion across 1 expert review

What We Liked

  • Smart looking with thick silver rim and accents
  • Decent build quality
  • Snappy performance in day-to-day use
  • Good camera

What We Didn't

  • A bit bulky - isn't very easy to use with just one hand, thanks to its blunt corners and thick frame
  • The rear panel is a bit slippery
  • Mediocre low resolution display with poor viewing angles
  • Low quality accessories - charger, and headset
  • Capacitive button design not updated for Android KitKat - there's still a useless Menu button where the Recent Apps button should be
  • Bugs with app permissions system
  • Hissing sound accompanies audio playback
  • Takes long time to charge
  • Average call quality
