The phone, which also comes in a Porsche Design version with 256GB of internal storage, impressed almost all the reviewers at the event.
USA Today was impressed because of its 'sleek design, new Leica cameras (which take seriously stunning images), and a battery that yields more than three days of music playback, up to 22 hours of video playback, and up to 25 hours of 3G calling. Perhaps most importantly, the new Kirin 970 processor is garnering quite a bit of buzz for its advanced AI (artificial intelligence), including the ability to predict the apps you'll use and load it into memory even before you tap the icons.
