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

  • Top-notch build quality, and good looking design
  • No fingerprint sensor

Display

  • Good display with accurate color reproduction, and good legibility even under sunlight

Software

  • Good software package with Samsung's Touchwiz UI
  • Great multimedia app package with an advanced music player, and FM radio too

Performance

  • The dated Snapdragon 410 chipset means that although the phone performs decent in daily tasks, it falls quite a bit short of phones with more modern chipsets in this price range

Camera

  • Decent front and back cameras with good colors and contrast levels (although detail could have been better)

Audio

  • Good audio quality
  • Average loudspeaker

Battery

  • Decent battery life
