2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 2 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks classy with ringed gold accent elements
  • The lack of metal means this is a lightweight phone, despite the 5.5-inch screen
  • Surprisingly fast fingerprint scanner
  • The phone is classy looking but the plastic design feels a little cheap among today's generally metal phones
  • The big bezel design is also a little outdated for 2018

Display

  • Good screen - pretty sharp, with good contrast levels, and good viewing angles

Software

  • There's also a notification LED, which is a neat extra that some mid-level smartphones lack
  • Near stock Android UI

Performance

  • Good, reliable performance - both with apps and games

Camera

  • Average rear and front cameras - there are no dual-camera/bokeh frills here - and the overall image quality is average - there's a lot of compression present on still images, and low-light shooting is also somewhat lackluster

Battery

  • Excellent battery - you should comfortably get a day and a half out of it with moderate use
  • Supports fast charging - goes from 0 to 100 in 1 hour 45 minutes

More

  • The rear has a grippy spiral texture which prevents the handset from being too slippy during use
  • Does not have the modern USB-C port
