2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Has a fingerprint sensor that works well and helps keep data on the phone secure
  • This phone also has a fingerprint app lock which lets you secure apps with your fingerprint

Display

  • Decent display, with decent viewing angles
  • MediaTek’s MiraVision technology lets you tweak the display somewhat to suit your taste
  • Sunlight legibility of the display isn't great

Software

  • Near-stock Android interface helps in keeping things simple
  • Comes with the BHIM app preinstalled, which can be used to send or receive money
  • Plenty of bloatware comes pre-installed

Performance

  • The performance of the phone is definitely a bottleneck - as you might expect in this price bracket - the 1GB of RAM makes multitasking difficult - and games are a no-go except for the most basic ones

Camera

  • Useful selfie flash
  • Mediocre rear and front cameras

Battery

  • The battery is replaceable, which is always nice
  • Battery performance is below average - the phone struggles to last through one day with low to medium use
  • Charging the battery takes a long time too

More

  • Has 2 dedicated Micro-SIM slots plus a dedicated microSD card slot (instead of taking the Hybrid Dual Sim approach that a lot of modern phones take)
  • Limited internal storage is something you are likely to run up against soon, especially if you tend to install games on your phone
