2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Nice, attractive looks
  • Relatively small and light - one-handed use is fairly easy
  • Average build quality - the plastic rim tends to get scuffed and dented easily
  • The front and back are glass, and the phone tends to slide around way too easily on any flat surface

Display

  • Decent display - colours are quite punchy without being oversaturated, and text is crisp - viewing angles are good enough too

Software

  • Poorly optimized UI, with poor touchscreen response, inaccurate tying experience, laggy performance, random app crashes
  • Full of spammy/redundant bloatware, a lot of which can't even be uninstalled
  • Swiping to the left of the first home screen brings up a media feed called Lfty - that is again full of ads, and sluggish

Performance

  • Limited RAM (1GB)
  • In addition to its software and usability problems, this phone got hot pretty easily while performing fairly mundane tasks

Camera

  • Average rear and front cameras - images are often washed out, dull, and lacking in sharpness
  • The camera app interface is pretty cluttered too

Audio

  • Average speaker - too soft and muffled

Battery

  • Weak battery life - with average use, you will need to grab the charger by evening
  • Also takes a long time to charge

More

  • Limited storage (8GB) - you will start to fall short very soon if you install even an average number of apps
  • The hybrid dual-SIM slot stings more than usual because of the extremely limited amount of internal storage
  • Poor benchmark scores too
  • Most video files don't seem to be supported, and don't run properly on the phone
