Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 7 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • 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

  • 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

  • Clean, simple, almost-stock Android interface

  • No unnecessary bloatware

  • 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

  • Excellent, smooth performance - even plays resource-intensive games without any signs of sluggishness or heating up on the back panel

  • Impressive battery life (lasts about a day and a half with moderate use)

What we didn't

  • A bit heavy

  • Average camera

  • No quick-charging support (which is present in some of it's competitors)

  • No FM Radio
