  • Decent audio quality
  • Smart Dual SIM manager is useful

Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Display lacks an ambient light sensor so it won't adjust brightness levels on its own
  • Performance is smooth in daily use, but is a definite step behind the phone's top peers in this price bracket
  • Poor low light performance of the camera
  • 8 GB of internal storage will be a limiting factor if you install a lot of apps/games
  • No ambient light sensor
  • No notification LED
  • Average rear camera
  • 8GB of internal memory will be a limiting factor if you tend to install a fair number of apps/games
  • Low volume loudspeaker
  • Performance is decent for daily use, but lags behind the top-performing phones in this price range
  • Gaming performance is again decent, but not the best
  • No "fast-charging" support (which is present in some of its competitors)
  • Loudspeaker volume is on the low side
