2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Average speed/performance
  • Average camera
  • 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
