PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 1 expert review

What We Liked

  • Decent build quality
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Lots of pre-loaded apps including Maps provided by HERE, NewsHunt, ESPN Cricinfo, Cricket Game, Facebook and McAfee Security
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good Dual SIM Management
  • Decent battery life

What We Didn't

  • Average display with small viewing angles, and no ambient light sensor / proximity sensor
  • Being glossy, the display is also prone to fingerprints
  • Average camera
  • Tizen OS interface takes some time getting used to
  • Tizen app store is tiny in comparison to Android, or iOS, or even Windows Phone, and missed out on a lot of important apps (Google apps, Twitter etc)
  • Tizen supports Android apps, but it's only up to developers to port it to Tizen platform - currently the selection is very limited
  • Average audio output through headset
