PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 5 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Nice premium build and design
  • Good display with decent viewing angles and color reproduction (although visibility under direct is average)
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Stock Android interface keeps things simple, and makes the overall performance smooth - there are no unnecessary preloaded apps either
  • Decent performer with smooth multitasking, helped by a deca-core processor
  • Decent camera - with good colour reproduction and low light performance - although detail levels are low
  • Decent front facing camera too, accompanied by an LED flash
  • Good battery life - for a heavy user, you will reach 20% towards the end of the day - for the average user, the phone should last for a day and you should have some juice left for the next day, before hitting the wall socket

What We Didn't

  • Pretty big with a 5.7-inch display, so not ideal in terms of ergonomics or for people with small hands
  • There is a little bit of touch latency that can become evident if you type really fast
  • Not ideal for heavy gaming - heavy games show frame rate issues on the device and the experience isn’t what you would see on rival smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 652 or the Snapdragon 820
  • Camera app is a little on the slow side
  • Supports fast charging, but doesn't come with a fast charger in the box
