2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Rugged, and good looking design
  • The curved back fits well into the palm and due to the coarse plastic finish, it really feels good to hold
  • Feels bulky, and tips the scales at over 200g

Display

  • Decent display with accurate color reproduction, good brightness levels, adjustable color temperature and an in-built blue-light filter
  • Gorilla glass protection on the display
  • Visibility under bright light is average due to the reflective nature of the screen

Software

  • The Zen UI is a bit cluttered and sometimes buggy (although highly customizable)

Performance

  • Smooth, effortless performance, including with resource intensive games
  • 3GB of RAM helps with good multi-tasking performance too
  • Also includes a Power saver mode, which adjusts processor performance, screen brightness and restricts access to features that use up more battery

Camera

  • Average camera

Audio

  • Decent loudspeaker, and audio quality

Battery

  • Excellent, super long lasting battery, that can deliver up to a 2-3 day backup!
  • Unique reverse charging support - can be used to charge other devices
  • Charging speed is on the slow side
