2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good build quality
  • Soft-touch coating makes the handset feel nicely grippable and smooth, and has the added benefit of deflecting smudges
  • A bit bulky

Display

  • Large and vivid 5-inch display

Software

  • Default launcher (interface) is not as easy-to-use, or intuitive as standard Android
  • No Google Play store, and constrained app ecosystem - since the phone uses a fork of the Android codebase, and not the standard Google supported version, apps which tie into Google's push notifications, in-app payments and maps APIs, for instance, are either unavailable or won't function properly
  • Limited internal memory could become an issue if you install a large number of apps/games

Performance

  • Average speed/performance, laggy interface

Camera

  • Good camera

Audio

  • Good call quality

Battery

  • Decent battery life

More

  • Offline navigation is useful
  • Skype integration
  • Free music streaming services (via MixRadio)
  • Good audio playback quality
  • No support for HD video playback
