PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 6 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Solid metal construction, with a premium feel - looks pretty good
  • 2.5D glass on the display also helps in giving it a more rounded and premium feel
  • Decent front 8-megapixel shooter
  • Good battery life - lasts for a day and a half with moderate use

What We Didn't

  • Capacitive navigation keys are not back-lit
  • Fingerprint scanner is a bit slow - takes over a second for the display to turn on from standby mode
  • While overall performance is decent when using regular social media and multimedia applications - but the phone still doesn't match up to the best performers in this price bracket - and using multiple apps at once tends to bog down the phone
  • Average camera - though details capture is good, but color depth is missing, and highlights tend to burn a bit too much
  • The phone is decent on the whole, but falls behind the top competition in this price bracket - the Xiaomi Redmi 3S which offers both extra storage (32GB), and an even longer battery life (4100 mAH)
