2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Loudspeaker is on the quite side
  • Performance is underwhelming and inconsistent at times
  • Especially poor for gaming, given its price range - GPU performance is well below par
  • Lacks ambient light sensor, gyroscope and magnetic sensor
  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when put under stress
