2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Decent ergonomics
  • Average build quality - feels plasticky, as you would expect from a smartphone in this price range
  • The capacitive touch buttons too have similar problems and are also positioned a little farther apart than usual which makes it harder to hit them based on muscle memory

Display

  • HD display is nice to see at this price point
  • While the display resolution is good, the overall quality is average - viewing angles aren't great, there is no display protection, and there is no ambient light sensor, so you are constantly forced to adjust the brightness manually - touch response time and accuracy aren't great either - there are times when you have to tap multiple times for the display to accept the input

Software

  • Buggy, unrefined custom UI that tends to crash, and has a bunch of bloatware pre-installed
  • Gesture support is iffy

Performance

  • Average, laggy performance - 1GB of RAM is a struggle - the phone is good for light use like calling and messaging, but slows down when the number of active apps goes up - gaming is slow too
  • When pushed, the phone also has a tendency to warm up

Camera

  • Average rear and front cameras - the viewfinders are laggy, and photos generally lack detail and appear dull

Audio

  • The speakers aren't very loud, and get blocked completely when the phones is placed on a table, resulting in quite a few missed calls and notifications

Battery

  • Decent battery life - will last you through one working day with light to moderate use
  • Charging speed is on the slow side - the 3000mAh battery take over three hours to charge when using the bundled 5W charger - inspite of the "fast charge" claim

More

  • Storage is an issue too with a limited 8GB of internal storage, which will quickly fill up
