2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 11+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Distinguished, iconic design
  • Great hand fit, because of the slim, and long design

Display

  • Larger (4 inches) Retina Display with well saturated colors, strong brightness output, and superb viewing angles

Software

  • iOS is, as always a pleasure to use, and has an easy learning curve (although many would feel that the visual interface could do with an overhaul - the simplistic icon based interface now looks a bit boring compared to other modern smartphones)
  • Excellent app ecosystem
  • The new maps app by Apple, lags far behind Google Maps in terms of comprehensiveness

Performance

  • Smooth, fluid performance

Camera

  • Great camera

Audio

  • Superb call quality with noise cancellation

More

  • Incredibly thin and light
  • Great web browser
