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

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality
  • Minimalist design
  • Android with the modern and fresh Hive UI
  • Decent performance
  • Excellent camera
  • Decent loudspeaker

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Fingerprint prone screen and body
  • Capacitive buttons are denoted by tiny dots that light up only when you touch that area - making the buttons difficult to find and use, until you get used to the phone a bit
  • Tends to heat up a little when running power-hungry apps
  • Average battery life
