It is 15.9x7.2x.8cm and weighs 189grams. The viewable screen is 6.9x15.2cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 6.54inches.
Going around the outside has the on/off button on the right side with a lock button above it. The base has a speaker, USB ‘C’ for charging and OTG devices, the SIM entry point is also there. The left side has volume rocker. The top has a pin hole microphone. There is a raised circle of 2.3cm across 1cm down from the top of the back that has the three camera lenses in a horizontal line with the LED flash mounted below the centre lens.
It has Android 10 and a 90HZ refresh rate. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+. You get 8GB of RAM and 128GB of memory, should you need more they do a 256GB version.
The battery is 3800mAh and should easily last a day. I got a full charge in 150 minutes via trickle charge. There is meant to be a warp charge mode to give a full charge in an hour.
Now the minus points, no wireless charging, no headphone socket and the rear camera bump is a large one.
It comes in two colours called frosted silver and the unit I got glacier blue.
There is no attempt to hide the notch for the front camera as it bites tear drop style into the top of the screen.
The screen is bright and this does not seem to cut into battery life between charges. The screen display is QHD+ and easy to read even quite small text, for text you have choice of reading in colour or black and white. My two week review period was not enough to see if this is useful or not.
The finger print reader is said to unlock the screen 50% faster than with the previous version.
So now onto the things I lot of people buy phones for today the cameras. You get a 48MP wide angle offering which is great when you have a group to capture and no chance to move further back. 16MP ultra wide angle lens and 12MP telephoto offerings. For those wanting selfies here the lens is 16MP. The macro mode is there and does allow you to get close. The night mode is reasonable without matching that of some high end offerings.
Perhaps the best camera feature is its 10x zoom which means that the same image can be taken and what in the wide angle can be a small part and when 10x is used it fills the screen.
On first set up you can select either the normal three button arrangement or the single button gestures option.
A nice phone that is as good as anything in the mid range price band but remember it is at the top of this price bracket, you do get a two year guarantee.
