Great midrange alternative to flagship

5/5
I'm giving this phone a high rating in the context of a mid range phone. So far, I love it. I've had it for about a week or two now and I've noticed what it lacks compared with the flag ship Xperia. It doesn't have focus as fast or as accurate. It's lacking a bit of speed and the screen has a lower refresh rate. But it's also about 1/2 the price. This is the first time I've bought the midrange equivalent and not the flagship. And I don't regret it. I love the extra long form factor which is great for wide-screen viewing, and even better for scrolling through social media. The display is crisp and the Xperia phone and contacts app is still my preferred apps over the Samsung and others. It's a great phone for the price. And if course, it's water resistant like any good phone should be.
