2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • The phone is built impressively well and feels sturdy
  • The quality and placement of the buttons are good too
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back, is quick to authenticate, and ergonomic to use
  • The single speaker at the bottom thankfully doesn’t get blocked when you hold the phone horizontally - and can pump out decent volume for media and alerts
  • A little bit heavy, and on the thicker side, due to its large battery

Display

  • Good sharp display - offers good viewing angles, colour reproduction and brightness levels - also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect it against scratches - overall easily one of the best displays in the budget segment

Software

  • Uses Leeco's EUI (Leeco is now the parent company) just without LeEco’s ‘Supertainment’ streaming services - it is swift, and works well, keeping bloatware to a minimum

Performance

  • The phone handles multitasking and general app performance with great ease - the speedy octa-core SoC and ample RAM ensure that there are rarely any slowdowns when launching apps or playing games - even demanding ones run smoothly - this is easily one of the best-performing phones in this price bracket
  • Reasonably good heat management
  • Media playback is also good, as the SoC is capable of handling 4K video, and high-bitrate files are also a non-issue

Camera

  • Decent rear camera, especially in daylight conditions - the dual camera setup allows for a nice bokeh effect
  • The front 8-megapixel camera too is decent for selfies in good lighting but not so much under artificial or low-light

Audio

  • Good audio quality via headphones

Battery

  • Excellent battery life - with normal usage, you can get a little more than a day and a half on a single charge
  • Charges fairly quickly too thanks to the 10W included adapter

More

  • Support the modern USB standard (USB Type C)
  • No expandable storage
