Bloody good, but with some quirks.
August 1, 2018
Grabbed one during dzdesignzone.com Prime day for almost 50% off. First off, looks phenomenal. The titanium sides with that hardened ceramic minimal back makes this extra durable. The hardware was the latest and greatest of 2017, but still incredibly fast. OS is as basic Android as you can get which makes it ultra responsive and smooth
There are some quirks however. Alot of people have complained about the camera, but for the most part, it has been substantially improved. It's fairly quick to launch, change shooting modes, auto zoom and what not. The software is now very good, but the hardware isn't up to snuff. My wife's iphone5s take much cleaner less noisy pictures, and that's a phone from 2013. The touch screen does get unresponsive every now and then, but only with certain apps. Instagram being one of them.
Overall it's still quite a powerful phone and one that is unmatched aesthetically. I'm very happy I bought it for the price that I did.
