2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Amazingly slim at just 5.1mm
  • Beautiful, premium design
  • Good build quality
  • Glass and metal design means the phone doesn't have a very good grip (so using a case is a good idea)

Display

  • Nice display with good viewing angles, and sunlight legibility

Software

  • Gionee's proprietary Amigo UI 2.0 is not the most refined Android skin around
  • Lot of bloatware

Performance

  • Good video playback performance
  • Sluggish performance, when multi-tasking

Camera

  • Decent camera

Audio

  • Average loudspeaker

Battery

  • Decent battery life

More

  • Feels a little too delicate at 97g
