PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 6 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Nice, pleasant metal design
  • Very good build quality and hand feel
  • The mTouch home button is one of the most practical home button implementations - accepting fingerprint scans, presses and taps
  • Flyme OS UI is fluid and responsive
  • Good call quality
  • Very good battery life - lasts a day and a half with moderate usage
  • Decent front camera for selfies

What We Didn't

  • The display is decent overall but has ordinary viewing angles, and sunlight legibility
  • Doesn't come with standard Google apps (they have to be downloaded separately)
  • Tends to heat up while gaming
  • Average rear camera, with ordinary color reproduction, and low level of detail
  • Performance is good in daily use, but the GPU lacks a punch, and the gaming performance is a behind it's top competitors
  • Average loudspeaker
