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

  • Good build quality, and finish

Display

  • Very good Super AMOLED display - sharp, bright, has good viewing angles, offers vibrant color output and good sunlight visibility

Software

  • Samsung's UI on top of Android looks good, and functions well
  • No notification LED
  • 8GB of internal memory will be a limiting factor if you tend to install a fair number of apps/games

Performance

  • Performance is decent for daily use, but lags behind the top-performing phones in this price range
  • Gaming performance is again decent, but not the best

Camera

  • Decent front camera
  • Average rear camera

Audio

  • Decent audio quality
  • Low volume loudspeaker
  • Loudspeaker volume is on the low side

Battery

  • Good battery life

More

  • People who travel via bikes, will find the S Bike Mode useful
  • Smart Dual SIM manager is useful
  • No ambient light sensor
  • No "fast-charging" support (which is present in some of its competitors)
