Android Police

Daniel Bader | March 2022
"It has an incredible display, best-in-class performance, and some awesome value adds, like an improved main camera sensor over last year and some of the best haptics you can find in the Android ecosystem. This is one of the best Android phones you can buy and will only get better over its four years of promised platform updates."
