2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 3 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • The plastic based build is not the best in terms of build quality

Display

  • The 5.5-inch HD display of the device delivers a sharp experience with ample colour and contrast - brightness does well too

Software

  • Near-stock Android interface helps in keeping things simple
  • The USP of the phone is the in-built AI based ‘Fashion Eye’ app which identify patterns and designs from clothes in the picture that is selected by the user, and then matches these designs with products available across various e-commerce websites to bring out an identical piece of clothing that the user can then buy - its pretty accurate, and will be a useful piece software to have on your phone if you are a fashion enthusiast
  • Plenty of bloatware comes pre-installed

Performance

  • Decent performance in day-to-day use

Camera

  • Average rear and front cameras

Battery

  • Decent battery life - will last the day with moderate use
  • Charging time is on the slow side - taking over 3 hours to charge the phone from 0 to 100%

More

  • Appealing design - the bezel area on the top and the bottom is optimum and is in match with the device’s screen size - the Black colour of the smartphone looks good in contrast with the gold detailing done on the sides and at the camera bump - power button on the right and the volume keys on the left are simplistically and conveniently placed for single-handed operation
