2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 13+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Solid build
  • Good looks
  • All metal uni-body design
  • With a 5.2-inch display, the phone is relatively ergonomic, compact and easy to handle (compared to it's top competitors in the price bracket which are all 5.5-inchers)
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor on the back

Display

  • Decent, sharp display, with good sunlight legibility
  • Good, solid phone in this price bracket even though it lacks the wow factors of some of it's competitors, like a giant battery, or a larger display

Software

  • Huawei's EMUI on top of Android works well

Performance

  • Smooth overall performance
  • Tends to heat up a bit, when put under stress

Camera

  • Decent cameras on the front and back
  • The camera's video recording quality is not as good

Audio

  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones

Battery

  • Good battery life - easily lasts a day with moderate use
  • No fast charging support (which is present in some of its competitors)
