2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Low-light camera performance of the phone is strictly average - with plenty of noise in the shots
  • No special support for quick charging unlike some of its competitors
  • Hybrid dual SIM slot lets you either use dual SIMS or a memory card, but not both together
  • Loudspeaker could have been louder
