My Impressions so far:

  • The 5.4 undeniably looks good. The glossy back finish in Dusk looks stunning. But it gathers fingerprints like crazy unlike the 5.3
  • The body feels well built but not as tank-like as the 5.3. This phone feels a lot closer to the 3.4 in build quality.
  • The screen is good. Colors are punchy, saturation and contrast are great. The resolution remains relatively low at HD+though but from a standard viewing distance it’s okay.
  • The phone feels responsive and quick. Have not noticed any notable lag or slow downs.
  • The main rear camera looks like a huge improvement on paper, and in my testing so far it does seem a lot more capable. The autofocus is a lot more reliable compared to the 5.3, but I still haven’t tested night mode. The rest of the cameras are identical but further testing is required.
  • Cinema mode and OZO audio at this price point are really nice. There is also video stabilization at 1080p finally.
  • Android One is back, with Android 10 out of the box. Meh.
  • The haptic engine (vibration motor) is a notable step back compared to the 5.3.


Anyway, these are my impressions so far. I have already moved my main SIM cards into the 5.4 and downloaded my 200+ apps for the full review. If you have any questions or want me to test something specific, let me know!
