First off, I just want to say that this is a very good-looking phone and is comfortable to hold. I’ve had it for a little over a week now, and I like its size. It’s the perfect size to type on with one hand.
Now, with that said let’s get to the review of the phone.
I’m not going to go into the nitty-gritty details of the phone. It is a year-old model at this point, and there are plenty of reviews which do exactly that.
Instead, I am going to review this as a user, with regular person needs.
One of the first things anyone will notice is how good looking the phone is. It is a very stylish looking phone, of course that really only matters for the first ten minutes before it’s hidden by a protective case. The AMOLED display is also very eye-catching, and frankly unless you have actively used a more expensive phone is very nice.
I like the display, it is gorgeous, especially for what I paid for the phone.
The phone is water-resistant, but not waterproof, so tread carefully there.
I’ve been using the phone on T-Mobile’s 5G network, and it definitely gets better and faster reception than my old phone. It should also be noted than many of the problems that have been mentioned in other reviews have been worked out in updates.
I do have an issue with the phone dropping the network occasionally for some reason. However, a simple restart fixes that, but it is odd.
The call quality is good, and the speaker is sound is decent though I do wish they had gone with a stereo set up, instead of just one in the bottom.
On the plus side, the Bluetooth is 5.1 High-Res Audio Certified and sounds fantastic as long as you have the headphones for it.
Now here is the part for the everyday consumer.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G is an older processor that absolutely doesn’t lag on anything you can throw at it. This phone will play any of the newer games without an issue.
The 6GB of RAM will keep you going all day as long as you don’t open every single program at once. Honestly, I would have preferred more RAM, since this is what was lacking on my last phone, but for now it is proving to be plenty.
The last thing I want to mention are the cameras. I know everyone likes to focus on them, but honestly how often do you really take photos as an average consumer?
I’m an author and come from a big family who just never took picture so maybe I’m the strange one, but I almost never take photos. So, all I’m going to say is they look good. I can’t judge any better than that.
The bottom line is that so far, I’m liking this phone. I do wish newer models weren’t quite so expensive, which is why I’m glad I was able to get this when it was on sale.
