This phone is a perfect companion for a business user as it packs all that a typical business user will need. But at the same time, it is not that friendly for a single handed usage and not the perfect choice for a consumer with typical day to day needs of a smart device purely because of large size. So the choice is clear, you can get it if you are looking for a top notch and secure business device, but don’t get it as your primary entertainment smartphone, rather use any other phone for your play needs and this one for your work needs.
