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

  • Looks pretty slick, with a minimalist design - a sleek rectangle with flat sides and rounded edges
  • The glossy black finish of its rear shell, is plasticky, but still looks good
  • You’ll want a case because the back will tend to pick up fingerprints and scuffs in no time
  • The fingerprint sensor is accurate enough, but it isn’t always easy to find the sensor by touch alone, causing recognition to fail
  • Average rear and front cameras - if you hold your hands steady and deal with some serious lag with the viewfinder and shutter - you can get pretty decent pictures - but it's too much hard work

Display

  • Decent display with strong Gorilla Glass 5 protection (something that's uncommon in this price bracket)

Software

  • Micromax’s Steroid Launcher on top of Android is buggy, unrefined, and full of adware/spam notifications - leading to a annoying usage experience
  • The UI is sluggish too, at times - and benchmark scores are on the low side as well

Audio

  • Fairly loud speaker (though the sound is hollow and tiny at higher volumes)

Battery

  • Average battery life - difficult to get a full day of use with moderate use
  • The bigger problem with the battery though is the slow charging speed - at an average of 15 percent per hour, you can’t hope to top it up quickly if you’re running low - and you will need to make sure to plug it in overnight every night

More

  • Launch offer with Airtel includes free local/ STD voice calling and 1GB of 4G data per day for one year
