2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Top-notch build quality
  • Great design for this price bracket
  • Looks smart, and its slim, metal design is very comfortable to hold too
  • The fingerprint scanner below the screen works well and doubles as a home button

Display

  • There's not much of a bezel around the display either, which means the body hasn't had to balloon out too much to accommodate its 5.2-inch display
  • Decent display - bright and bold
  • Display resolution could have been better - some competitors provide a 1080p display in this price bracket

Software

  • Internal memory at 16GB might become a limiting factor if you install lots of apps/games

Performance

  • Runs almost stock Android UI resulting in a clean, fuss-free interface that's easy to use and nippy to navigate thanks to the phone's octa-core processor
  • Performance is good in daily use, and casual games are handled well too
  • The performance is alright, but definitely lags behind competitors like the Moto G5 Plus or the Redmi Note 4, which have more power under the hood

Camera

  • Decent rear camera - especially in daylight - detail levels are good, noise is not an issue, colors are pleasing
  • Decent front camera - with an HDR mode that gives sharp, well-balanced selfies
  • The rear camera too is ok, but not as good as the top camera phones in this price bracket, like the Moto G5 Plus

Audio

  • Decent loudspeaker

Battery

  • Very good battery life - comfortably lasts a whole day of use
