2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Very good, virtually edge-to-edge 18:9 display, keeping in line with the biggest trend of 2017 - it is also bright and responsive to touch - and provides a great experience when it comes to reading or watching videos
  • It's also extremely sleek and that makes it easy to grip
  • The phone scores well both on aesthetics and ergonomics - it's also easier to handle than the V7+
  • Dedicated Dual SIM and MicroSD card slots
  • Pretty decent facial unlock system (along with the standard fingerprint sensor) - works well in all but poor lighting conditions
  • Funtouch UI over Android looks pretty decent (and similar to iOS) and the bloatware is minimal
  • Decent, solid day-to-day performance backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC with 4GB of RAM
  • Good front camera, with a well-implemented portrait mode - takes good selfies in all kinds of conditions
  • Decent rear camera - does a good job in daylight conditions (though not so much in low light), and with portrait mode
  • Good battery life - will comfortably last the day
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Plastic body
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Charging speed is decent but could have been better - will take about an hour to go from 0 to 50%
