Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The dated Snapdragon 410 chipset means that although the phone performs decent in daily tasks, it falls quite a bit short of phones with more modern chipsets in this price range
  • Average loudspeaker
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Display is a little reflective, and prone to smudges
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Average rear camera - daylight images come a little washed out, while low light images have plenty of noise
  • Average call quality
  • Heats up a bit when playing heavy games
