WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality and design
  • Good display - sharp, bright, and has good color reproduction and viewing angles
  • ZenUI over Android is efficient and has some useful gesture controls
  • Good camera - images are sharp, detailed, and have good color saturation levels
  • Laser auto-focus adds a unique touch to the camera, and produces good results when shooting up close
  • Excellent battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Speed/performance is decent in daily use, but lags behind the top performers in this price range
