2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Decent build quality
  • The 183 grams of weight, slippery glossy back and its large footprint, means the phone is not very ergonomic to hold

Display

  • Beautiful, bright display - easily one of the best displays in its segment

Software

  • Clean, minimalistic Sense UI over Android

Performance

  • Good performance in daily use, but not quite up to the level of its top competitors

Camera

  • Average camera

Audio

  • Good audio quality
  • Good stereo loudspeakers

Battery

  • Average battery life
