The best Android experience

This device has excellent feature set, and the display is as close to perfect as it gets. The camera quality is impeccable, as expected. The battery life is poor in my opinion, especially compared to other flagships, and even more so when considering the size of the battery. Hopefully battery life can be improved with updates. The Android experience on this device is the best you're going to get on any Android device. If you're a light user of your phone and take a lot of photos, this is probably the device for you. If you're looking for something to last you all day with consistent usage, look elsewhere.

Pros

  • Camera quality is impeccable
  • Display is top notch
  • Best Android experience
  • First Android Device to get updates

Cons

  • Poor Battery life
  • Poor resale value
  • Competition has longer Software support
