2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Poor screen readability under sunlight
  • Average camera
  • Low speaker volume
  • A bit bulky
  • Default launcher (interface) is not as easy-to-use, or intuitive as standard Android
  • No Google Play store, and constrained app ecosystem - since the phone uses a fork of the Android codebase, and not the standard Google supported version, apps which tie into Google's push notifications, in-app payments and maps APIs, for instance, are either unavailable or won't function properly
  • Limited internal memory could become an issue if you install a large number of apps/games
  • Average speed/performance, laggy interface
  • No support for HD video playback
