phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 5 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Well built
  • Compact, and solid design, with a metal back
  • Comfortable to hold and use, with a slight arch around the back
  • Matte layer on the outside keeps the phone free from smudges
  • Bright display, with some useful fine-tuning options
  • Good speed/performance overall (although below the top-performing phones in this price range, like the Coolpad Note 3)
  • Vibe UI allows plenty of customization, is visually appealing, and has some nice looking themes
  • There is also a more stock-Android UI option, for users that prefer that
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Decent battery life - you can see through a whole day, at moderate usage levels
  • Pretty good rear and front cameras, especially for still photography
  • Good pair of booming stereo speakers

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Average viewing angles on the display
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Video recording performance is let down by persistent focus-hunting by the camera
