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

  • Nice premium build and design
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Pretty big with a 5.7-inch display, so not ideal in terms of ergonomics or for people with small hands

Display

  • Good display with decent viewing angles and color reproduction (although visibility under direct is average)

Performance

  • Stock Android interface keeps things simple, and makes the overall performance smooth - there are no unnecessary preloaded apps either
  • Decent performer with smooth multitasking, helped by a deca-core processor
  • Not ideal for heavy gaming - heavy games show frame rate issues on the device and the experience isn’t what you would see on rival smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 652 or the Snapdragon 820

Camera

  • Decent camera - with good colour reproduction and low light performance - although detail levels are low
  • Decent front facing camera too, accompanied by an LED flash
  • Camera app is a little on the slow side

Battery

  • Good battery life - for a heavy user, you will reach 20% towards the end of the day - for the average user, the phone should last for a day and you should have some juice left for the next day, before hitting the wall socket
  • Supports fast charging, but doesn't come with a fast charger in the box

More

  • There is a little bit of touch latency that can become evident if you type really fast
