PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 6 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Stylish metal unibody design
  • Looks and feels much better than the price suggests
  • Good display with slim bezels
  • Almost-stock Android interface, with a useful "Around" service to detect local businesses nearby
  • Decent overall speed and performance
  • Decent rear and front cameras - take reasonably good images in well-lit conditions, with minimal shutter lag
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Decent battery life

What We Didn't

  • Display lacks Gorilla Glass protection
  • Tends to heat up when taxed
  • No support for quick-charging technology (which is present in some of it's competitors)
  • Camera quality (both rear and front cameras) in low light could have been better
  • While overall performance is ok for daily use and basic games, the processor struggles with high-end games, falling behind it's top competitors in this price bracket
