2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Solid build quality
  • The matte-ish finish on the back, along with the slight curve near the rear edges, gives the device a nice feel
  • Compact, slim and easy to use
  • Very good speed/performance, backed by latest generation of 64-bit processors, and 2GB RAM
  • Decent camera
  • Decent loudspeaker (Dolby speakers)
  • Good battery life
  • 4G support
  • Well built
  • Compact, and solid design, with a metal back
  • Comfortable to hold and use, with a slight arch around the back
  • Matte layer on the outside keeps the phone free from smudges
  • Bright display, with some useful fine-tuning options
  • Vibe UI allows plenty of customization, is visually appealing, and has some nice looking themes
  • There is also a more stock-Android UI option, for users that prefer that
  • Good speed/performance overall (although below the top-performing phones in this price range, like the Coolpad Note 3)
  • Pretty good rear and front cameras, especially for still photography
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Good pair of booming stereo speakers
  • Decent battery life - you can see through a whole day, at moderate usage levels
2-minute Review [Negatives]

  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Average viewing angles on the display
  • Video recording performance is let down by persistent focus-hunting by the camera
