phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 3 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Nice premium looks, thanks to the 2.5D curved glass up front
  • The metal finish on the back compliments the overall look of the phone
  • Comfortable size
  • Nice, crisp display
  • Decent speed/performance in daily use (although resource-heavy games will struggle)
  • Good bundled VR headset for the price
  • The L52 perfectly fits inside the VR headset and there are two suction cups inside to keep the device in place
  • VR center + various preloaded VR games and videos

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • While the overall VR performance is good, the field of view is quite narrow which limits the VR experience
  • Tends to get hot with heavy gaming and VR usage
  • While a bundled VR headset at a budget price is unique, it is now possible to purchase a number of third party VR headsets (all priced under Rs. 2, 000) that can be used with any Android smartphone
  • Rear camera is underwhelming, takes a long time to focus, and there is a lot of shutter lag
  • The front camera is a fixed focus unit which suffers from the same slow shutter speed issue along with loss of details and visible noise in the images
  • Average battery life, with the VR tending to drain the battery even more quickly
