By means of a light magnesium alloy for the frame and a back of Kevlar fibre, the Aquos Zero is particularly light. An arched display emphasises the slender design in the side view; from the front, the side frame is almost invisible. Moreover, the smartphone is pleasant to hold due to the rounded sides and hand fatigue is reduced. The generous display in combination with a sound quality in Dolby stereo supports a high-quality image experience.
Statement by the Jury
The precisely engineered, arched display of the Aquos Zero is appealing with its elegant appearance. Its light weight is also attractive.
