phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 7 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Very good build quality
  • The soft, matte plastic and its perfect blend with the high-grade aluminum frame look and feel great
  • Polycarbonate shell provides good amount of grip, and holds almost no fingerprints or smudges
  • The arch at the bottom looks classy with the catchy notification LED
  • Good display - has punchy colors, good viewing angles, and does well outdoors
  • Color OS over Android is fluid and responsive and has useful features like double-tap-to-wake and motion-launch gestures
  • Good speed/performance
  • Very good camera, with motorized 206 degree rotation - takes automatic panoramic shots and top quality selfies -- without having to flip the phone around
  • The fingerprint scanner is easy and quick to use, practical too
  • Good video playback quality
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Big and chunky - large size makes it difficult to use it with one hand
  • Second SIM slot can be used either for SIM or Micro SD card, but not both
  • Average battery life
