2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Feels bulky, and tips the scales at over 200g
  • Visibility under bright light is average due to the reflective nature of the screen
  • The Zen UI is a bit cluttered and sometimes buggy (although highly customizable)
  • Average camera
  • Charging speed is on the slow side
  • Camera is pretty decent, but could have been better
