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.

Display

  • Modern, tall display
  • Touch response is not the best and there is a noticeable lag that dampens the experience

Software

  • Android Go Edition means you get the lighter variants of Google Apps (like Gmail, Google Maps) bundled, which are gentler on system resources - something that's important on a low-spec phone like this

Performance

  • Average performance

Camera

  • Decent cameras (both rear and front) - the images clicked generally look sharp and good enough for social media - there are also a number of filters to play around with

Battery

  • Good battery life with a 3000mAh battery - with moderate use, the phone lasts one and a half days
  • The phone does tend to heat up while charging and while using extensively

More

  • Due to low internal storage (16GB), you will be soon storing apps and data in the external storage which inevitably leads to further decline in performance
  • On the whole, the Z61 is an average device, and you will these days find many better options even in this ultra-budget segment
