Verdict:

I will base my final words about this device on some key specs:

  • Processor: The qualcomm snapdragon 855 octa core is perfectly okay considering competing brand’s processors. Processor is rated good.
  • Storage: It’s 8 GB LPDDR4x RAM storage is currently the industry second best. The ROM/internal storage is 256 GB is a well good.
  • Camera: Aquos zero 2 12.2 MP + 21.1MP ultrawide rear camera sensors is good but falls short on it’s not-too-good 8 MP front camera.
  • Battery: The 3,130mAh battery capacity for this device is quite average.

Overall, the device is quite unique with certain high-tech features and that makes for it’s inflated price.
