phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 2 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality
  • Aesthetic design with chrome accents running along its edges
  • Nice display with good brightness levels, and viewing angles
  • Reasonably good Amigo skin over Android
  • Good speed/performance, both in everyday use, and in gaming
  • Excellent battery life (can give you up to 2 days of moderate use, on a single charge)
  • Good loudspeaker

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • A bit bulky
  • Bundled charger is of 5W capacity, and is slow to charge the large battery of the phone (we recommend purchasing a higher capacity charger)
  • Below average bundled earphones (we recommend buying/using your own)
  • Average cameras - front and back
  • No notification LED or backlit buttons
