PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 2 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Premium build quality
  • Excellent display - as good as the Huawei P9's and better than most similarly priced phones
  • Heavily skinned Android UI, that adds some useful features, and works reasonably well on the whole
  • Good, nippy overall performance - although there can be some lag when switching between heavy apps
  • Excellent audio output quality through the 3.5mm audio jack - although it's on the quiet side
  • Good battery life, helped by some aggressive background app management - lasts the whole day with moderate use

What We Didn't

  • Decent camera with good capabilities, but better stills and video can be had elsewhere at this price point
