  • Feels light in the hand and can easily be operated with one hand
  • Vibrant, sharp display, with nice viewing angles and saturated colours
  • Good overall speed/performance
  • Decent rear and front cameras

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Display legibility under sunlight is not too good
  • Mediocre battery life, and no support for fast-charging technology (which is present on a lot of modern phones)
