2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Display lacks the Corning Gorilla glass 3 protection found in some of it's top competitors in this price range
  • Could have had 16GB internal memory (but we are nitpicking)
  • Average camera
  • Average speed/performance, given the hardware specs
  • Tends to heat up when put under stress with high end games
  • Gallery and Camera application could use some more advanced features to keep up with the rest of the UX
