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

  • Well-built
  • Cool design with a colourful dot pattern on the back, that gives it a unique personality of its own
  • Light-weight, and slim

Display

  • Relatively low resolution display, that doesn't feel at par with its top rivals, especially when it comes to movie playback and gaming

Software

  • HTC's Sense UI is a breeze, looks nice, and works well

Performance

  • While the phone handles day-to-day tasks well, it struggles with heavy tasks and games due to its dated processor, which is a bit of a disappointment in a mid-range phone

Camera

  • Decent front camera
  • Protruded camera module
  • Average rear camera, with low detailing levels

Audio

  • Excellent audio capabilities with the Dolby powered boom sound speakers

Battery

  • Battery life is decent, but could certainly have been better
