2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Well built
  • Sleek, aesthetic design - metal-clad body with a brushed matte finish at the back and a glossy front panel
  • Handy, despite the big screen
  • Accurate, and quick fingerprint sensor
  • Excellent, smooth performance - even plays resource-intensive games without any signs of sluggishness or heating up on the back panel

Display

  • Good display- handles text well, colors don't look pale or too bright, visibility from odd angles is also good
  • Extensive display customization options allowing you to tweak it to just your liking - contrast, colour saturation, picture brightness, sharpness, temperature as well as dynamic contrast and colour effect settings for video playback

Software

  • Clean, simple, almost-stock Android interface
  • No unnecessary bloatware

Camera

  • Average camera

Battery

  • The "Around YU" feature works quite well, and offers a one-stop solution to book bus tickets, cabs, flight tickets, shop or order food, or recharge your phone
  • Impressive battery life (lasts about a day and a half with moderate use)
  • No quick-charging support (which is present in some of it's competitors)

More

  • A bit heavy
  • No FM Radio
