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

  • Premium build quality

Display

  • Excellent display - as good as the Huawei P9's and better than most similarly priced phones

Performance

  • Good, nippy overall performance - although there can be some lag when switching between heavy apps

Camera

  • Decent camera with good capabilities, but better stills and video can be had elsewhere at this price point

Audio

  • Excellent audio output quality through the 3.5mm audio jack - although it's on the quiet side

Battery

  • Good battery life, helped by some aggressive background app management - lasts the whole day with moderate use

More

  • Heavily skinned Android UI, that adds some useful features, and works reasonably well on the whole
