PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 3 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Good build quality (Aluminium build)
  • Compact design
  • 2.5D curved glass on the front panel gives a nice look
  • Good speaker output
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with normal use

What We Didn't

  • Although the design is nice looking on the whole, the thick bottom bezel seems unnecessary
  • Average display - although the viewing angles are good, however, the colours look a bit washed out and it looks a bit dull - sunlight legibility too is average
  • UI could do with plenty of work - it looks old, the transitions are not always smooth, and it has quirks like needing to long-press the Recent button to open recent apps - which hinders the multi-tasking experience - finally, the UI also comes loads with a lot of bloatware
  • Average performance - tends to lag with multi-tasking
  • Inconsistent rear camera - lacks detailing, colours sometimes are a bit washed out, and low light performance is pretty ordinary too
  • No fingerprint scanner
