2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 11+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Well built
  • Un-ergonomic and heavy - certainly not practical to use with one hand - other good large screen phones in this price bracket like the Oppo F3 Plus and Samsung’s Galaxy C7 Pro offer much better ergonomics

Display

  • Good, large display - well suited for gaming and watching videos - colour reproduction and viewing angles are very good

Software

  • The UI is not the most refined and is gimmicky at some places

Performance

  • Performance is pretty average too, for this price bracket - most other top phones in this price bracket offer better performance

Camera

  • Decent rear camera, with dual camera setup - pictures taken in ample light conditions have good colour reproduction, good dynamic range, almost accurate white balance and most of the details - the dual camera setup also enables the phone to take basic ‘Bokeh’ images
  • Good front facing 20MP camera - amongst the best in the category
  • While still photography is decent, the video recording performance of the rear camera is lacking - the phone struggles to capture smooth 1080p, with minor banding issues - and also doesn't offer 4K video capture, which is expected at the price range

Audio

  • Nice stereo speakers

Battery

  • Good battery life - will last the whole day even heavy users
  • Supports fast charging - with the supplied charger one can charge the phone from 0-60% in less than a hour
  • Battery life is good and will last a day, but other top large screen phones in the price range are even better - offering up to 2 days of battery life
