2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 11+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Sleek, classy design, and good build quality
  • Comfortable to hold in one hand
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Video recording is only limited to 720p and saves files in the antiquated 3gp format - video frame rates are also inconsistent from time to time

Display

  • Decent display - plenty bright and with decent sunlight legibility, on par with other budget devices

Software

  • The UI does well on aesthetics, keeping things simple with a near-stock Android experience with a nice "Nokia blue" skin on top
  • Poorly optimised software - the UI often stutters even with casual loads

Performance

  • The chipset also tends to struggle with graphic tasks (games etc)

Camera

  • Mediocre rear camera - the 8MP main camera has autofocus issues and produces soft photos - HDR seems to help a bit with finer detail, but leads to over sharpening - spot exposure metering is inconsistent and overly sensitive
  • The front camera too tends to be inconsistent

Audio

  • The single bottom-firing loudspeaker is pretty loud

Battery

  • Average battery life

More

  • Audio quality on the whole is decent
