Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 9 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • Looks classy with an all-black glass front and back (Gorilla Glass 3), a grey aluminum frame, and rounded side buttons

  • Good build quality

  • Sharp, vivid display

  • Creo's Fuel OS skin on top of Android is the main highlight of the phone, and offers a number of thoughtful features over the basic Android interface - including Sense (all-phone search), Echo (answering machine), Retriever (security app), easy notification blocking, and a smarter SMS app with spam control

  • Even with these additional features the overall UI is simple and easy, and doesn't take long to get a hang of

  • The other USP of the device is the monthly software updates that will keep adding on new features, and improving existing ones, using a direct feedback loop with Creo's customers - so you might see the phone getting better with age

  • Decent camera performance with nice add-on features like Live images and 3D Photos/Selfies (although low light performance is lacking a bit)

  • Good call quality, with intelligent noise cancellation

What we didn't

  • Bulky form factor, at 190 grams

  • The glossy front and back are fingerprint magnets

  • Performance is decent overall, but a step behind the well performing phones in this price range

  • Average battery life

  • The Fuel OS UI has some occasional bugs (which should hopefully sort out over time, with the regular updates)
