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

  • Well built
  • Compact, and solid design, with a metal back
  • Comfortable to hold and use, with a slight arch around the back
  • Matte layer on the outside keeps the phone free from smudges
  • No fingerprint sensor

Display

  • Bright display, with some useful fine-tuning options
  • Average viewing angles on the display

Software

  • Vibe UI allows plenty of customization, is visually appealing, and has some nice looking themes
  • There is also a more stock-Android UI option, for users that prefer that

Performance

  • Good speed/performance overall

Camera

  • Pretty good rear and front cameras, especially for still photography
  • Video recording performance is let down by persistent focus-hunting by the camera

Audio

  • Excellent audio quality
  • Good pair of booming stereo speakers

Battery

  • Decent battery life - you can see through a whole day, at moderate usage levels
