phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 2 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Sleek, premium, iPhone-like design, with glass on both sides
  • Bright and crisp display
  • Android with Color OS skin
  • Decent performance in day-to-day use
  • Useful software add-ons like Guest mode, Holiday mode
  • Many useful gesture-based functions
  • Good call quality
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good primary and secondary cameras
  • Decent battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Very slippery, and the high-gloss surfaces pick up smudges and fingerprints like crazy (hence using a case is a good idea)
  • Bluetooth is stuck at version 2.1, which won't play well with many of today's popular low-energy accessories
  • The phone struggles with high-end games, and full HD videos
