Powerful specs, software letdown


nabled prior to the airplane mode - if not using charger provided most other type c usb chargers take around 4hrs to fully charge - very few customisations and shortcuts compared with phones like Samsung, HTC, etc.

Good phone


Good all round phone, but key board can be a bit temperamental. Camera is maybe a little too good, as a 10 sec video takes 33 mb and cant be e-mailed or sent via text due to size. Aside from the keyboard and the images issue, i would recommend it.

Great device


The main things I wanted were the great camera (dual Leica 20 megapixels) and long battery life. These are sensational. By scheduling the phone to shut down at night, it's feasible to get 3+ days between charges (and they only take 90 mins or so). I...
