phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 6 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality
  • Aesthetic design - brushed metal at the back gives the phone a premium look and offers good grip
  • The 5-inch display feels compact and is easy for one handed operations, and for people with small hands
  • Decent display with vibrant colors, and good viewing angles
  • Funtouch OS over Android looks attractive and has some useful added functionality (though it is a little cluttered)
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Loud and clear speaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Decent front (selfie) camera
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good battery life - easily lasts a day with moderate to heavy use
  • Fast charging support

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Display is a little reflective, and prone to smudges
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Average rear camera - daylight images come a little washed out, while low light images have plenty of noise
  • Average call quality
  • Heats up a bit when playing heavy games
