2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Unique, minimalist design
  • Polycarbonate-made, scratch- and fingerprint-resistant back cover

Display

  • Average display, lacking in auto-brightness adjustment

Software

  • UI theme matching depending on the color of the back cover
  • Sailfish OS is colorful, minimalist, and pleasant to look at
  • Sailfish OS with its gesture based UI is a steep learning curve
  • Poor app support - the official Google Play Store is not supported, and alternative Android app stores provide limited choice - many key apps are missing

Performance

  • Decent, lag-free performance in daily use

Camera

  • Average camera

Audio

  • Decent call quality

Battery

  • Average battery life

More

  • Good integration with social networks
  • Sharp corners, which on prolonged use tend to dig into your palm and don't feel very nice
  • Average web browser
