PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 3 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Good looking phone built on solid lines
  • Good ergonomics - with curves along the edges, matte finish on the back, and a compact form factor
  • Runs nearly stock Android out of the box - the clean interface makes understanding the phone quite easy
  • 4G + VoLTE support

What We Didn't

  • Average display, as is to be expected in this budget - with washed out colours, ordinary viewing angles, and average sunlight legibility
  • Is meant mainly for casual or first time smartphone users - with MediaTek‚Äôs MT6735 processor with 1GB RAM in tow - becomes sluggish during multi-tasking - although it can handle basic games such as Temple Run or Smash Hit, well
  • Average battery life - the 2, 000mAh battery doesn't last a whole day with modest use
  • The 8-megapixel camera is a typical budget smartphone camera with limited modes and very average picture quality
