Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone ever I bought it 4 months ago more I have more it's becomes trouble. Calls are blocked, now after update it's ok. When I turn on any video phone keeps vibrating for 5 secs on more, sometimes it's stucks and vibrates non stop.... Gaming experience is terrible I can't even play mobile legends on ultra graphics on hight it's still lagging. Huawei p30 pro camera was better then this phone everything was better. Yeh camera was crashing , after restaring camera phone video was recorded and the was no sound ....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's got the power - to frustrate! I don't know how I ended up with this garbage - wanted to be different. Has to be the worst phone I had in years. The main camera is only just average, if you want your photos to look decent you really have to play with exposure, iso and other settings. This simply defeats the purpose of a phone camera. Front camera is something you would find on a 10 years old device - it's simply shocking. Sony claims this phone is for professional photographers and not for taking selfies! What about video calling?! There are a lot of problems with the rest of this device. Wireless charging will stop and a message will appear telling me it's not placed properly. When charging via cable it will keep beeping at me all night as if the cable was unplugged and put back in - I have to turn off all notifications otherwise I'll get no sleep. I have to delete pictures and videos from my gallery on a weekly basis now, otherwise taking a picture takes 30 seconds save. Flagship phone costing more than £1k! Don't believe the hype and all positive sponsored reviews. Yes the screen is nice and speakers sound decent but that's about it.
