phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 5 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Compact, ergonomic, well-built, well-designed
  • The matte black plastic with gold splatters add a dash of fun to the overall design
  • Comes with 2-piece snap case included
  • Decent display with good legibility in most lighting conditions
  • The HTC Sense UI over Android is light-weight, and aesthetically done
  • Good call quality
  • Decent audio quality via headphones
  • Good rear camera, in well-lit conditions

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • No Gorilla Glass protection on the display
  • Performance is a let-down and below-average for this price bracket (due to the dated processor), and the phone shows noticeable lag even in lighter apps
  • Sub-par battery life - lasts half a day with heavy use
  • No fingerprint scanner
  • Loudspeaker volume is on the low side
  • Average low light performance of the rear camera
  • Front camera tend to over-soften images
  • Shutter response is also quite sluggish, and the camera app itself takes some time to open
