2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • The phone isn't the most comfortable phone to hold and use - there are raised ridges around the front and back that feel rough in the hand and against the ear
  • Very run-of-the-mill looks/design
  • Misses out on features like an IR emitter, a fingerprint sensor, quick charging etc - things that are now expected of phones in this price range

Display

  • Decent display

Software

  • Almost-stock Android UI (with only a few little tweaks in the settings app) keeps things nice and simple

Camera

  • Camera is of good quality, but slow to focus and save images
  • The dual camera feature, allowing you to "refocus" images isn't implemented particularly well, and is mostly gimmicky

Audio

  • Good audio quality via the bundled headphones
  • The loudspeaker is quite tinny and prone to distortion

Battery

  • Very good battery life

More

  • VoLTE support for internet-based calls
  • None of the bundled accessories seem to be particularly impressive in terms of quality, given the price range of the device
  • The phone is also a bit slippery and slides around on flat surfaces
  • Sometimes hangs when playing video files
  • Performance is way behind the competition in this price range, with very little muscle power to tap for heavier tasks
