2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • A bit heavy - because of the large battery
  • Display is decent, but has a resolution on the low side
  • Takes over 5 hours to charge fully with the included 1A/5V charger
  • Plenty of bloatware comes pre-installed
  • Average display, with low brightness levels
  • Fingerprint-prone screen
  • No Gorilla Glass protection on screen
  • Average loudspeaker - cracks at high volumes, and is poorly placed
