2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Small screen size compared to other flagship phones, means that the video/photo viewing experience is not quite as immersive
  • Not as future-proof as the 5s
  • Average display
  • The Windows app store continues to a downside for the platform, with relatively limited app selection available when compared to Android or iOS
  • Under-powered processor can result in a sluggish interface at times
