2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks classy with an all-black glass front and back (Gorilla Glass 3), a grey aluminum frame, and rounded side buttons
  • Good build quality
  • Bulky form factor, at 190 grams
  • The glossy front and back are fingerprint magnets

Display

  • Sharp, vivid display

Software

  • Creo's Fuel OS skin on top of Android is the main highlight of the phone, and offers a number of thoughtful features over the basic Android interface - including Sense (all-phone search), Echo (answering machine), Retriever (security app), easy notification blocking, and a smarter SMS app with spam control
  • Even with these additional features the overall UI is simple and easy, and doesn't take long to get a hang of
  • The other USP of the device is the monthly software updates that will keep adding on new features, and improving existing ones, using a direct feedback loop with Creo's customers - so you might see the phone getting better with age
  • The Fuel OS UI has some occasional bugs (which should hopefully sort out over time, with the regular updates)

Performance

  • Performance is decent overall, but a step behind the well performing phones in this price range

Camera

  • Decent camera performance with nice add-on features like Live images and 3D Photos/Selfies (although low light performance is lacking a bit)

Audio

  • Good call quality, with intelligent noise cancellation

Battery

  • Average battery life
