2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Sturdy build quality
  • Premium, unibody design, with a gold lining running throughout the corners at the back of the handset
  • The metal sides offer decent grip

Display

  • Good display - sharp, fairly bright, and with impressive sunlight legibility
  • Display is a bit smudge prone

Software

  • Amigo UI over Android looks decent, and comes with a lot of add-on features
  • Comes with a lot of bloatware pre-installed (that can't be uninstalled)

Performance

  • Decent speed/performance (although behind the top performers in this price bracket)

Camera

  • Decent rear and front cameras, during daytime conditions
  • The front camera performs just about average in low-light conditions, in spite of the included front flash

Audio

  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones
  • Decent loudspeaker

Battery

  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use

More

  • Slightly heavy for its size
  • Corners of the handset could have been more rounded for ease of use
