Finally a worthy sucessor of my current Sony Z Ultra!
Design could have been better, but beggers can't be choosers I guess :o)

I have a note3 with 10000mah battery and that with wifi, 4g, bt, gps enabled and music(on bt) + gps goes off from it loses 10% charge per hour( 2.5 year old phone/battery ). I see it very challanging to run out of juice on this device within a day, on extreme heavy use ( hence seriously considering it! ). Probably the only thing can drain the battery off before you make it to the end of the day is heavy gaming.

When you start bashing something because it's a personal preference then you lost all credibility. I've been a reader for over a decade and for the most part, gsmarena is the most unbiased tech review site that I go to. To say that big phones is a disadvantage is like saying iOS is a disadvantage, you're putting your own opinion like it's a fact. When you can't quantity something, you shouldn't be listing it as a disadvantage. PERIOD. When you can quantity the fact that a small battery provide less on-screen usage, a SD652 is slower than a SD820 based on synthetic benchmark, 2gb ram provide less multitasking and performance vs 4gb, etc...then you can objectively list it as a disadvantage.
To arbitrarily pick something that you can't quantity and list it as a disadvantage just shows the lack of knowledge that the reviewer has for the product that he's reviewing.
AnonD-436254, 06 Jun 2016you have to put the phone down sometimes man! but when you leave home or another place you should carry your phone, right.
it's like where ever you go you are looking to finish the charging you started hours ago.
so you could only put it into charge at night before sleep.it runs outta battery at daytime and you should stick by around 4 hours or carry around the charger everywhere to finish the charging, that's not wise.
AnonD-77530, 07 Jun 2016Too big. Until 6 inches I could support, but.Nope, sounds like a great phone. I own a Nexus 6 now and this would be a nice one to have as well. Very tempting.
A new negative should be added for phones which cannot be purchased in normal stores, available only via flash sales and very low amount of units produced resulting in almost always out of stock status
ljames, 07 Jun 2016do you understand that the gsmarena team, or any team of any tech website out there, have thei... moreI have to disagree with you, and agree with the original comment. I'm 6'4" and have a size of a hand as a basketball player, I simply cannot use my company iphone 4s for anything else other than phone calls - however in most cases I still just forward it to my note3. This phone with it's 5.7" phone is OK size, however considering most large phones (5.7"+ )released in the last 2.5 years have some serious disadvantages like stupidly small battery.
For any site doing reviews including GSMarena ( which I have been a frequent visitor in the last years ) doing a review on an item like large phone makes no sense to me to list it as disadvantage for it's primary purpose!
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2016I think ASUS Zenfone 3 Ultra.Do you think which one has a better battery life?
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2016So if "big, large, massive" is a disadvantage then "small,puny, screens" should be a disadvant... moredo you understand that the gsmarena team, or any team of any tech website out there, have their own views and preferences, just as you do? you are not the basis for anything. you are nothing. so shut it.
