'The hardware is quirky at best and awkward all around, while the software is often frustrating.'
'Its movements are more fluid than Android, it looks good and it is clearly a system that has been worked on over a significant period time – not one Jolla has simply knocked-up over the last six months.'
'The HTC Desire 601 is a phone that gets close to the sort of specs you’d get in a top-end One-series phone, but at a slightly lower price.'
