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

  • Modern, appealing design language, with a notch-based tall display, that is uncommon to see at this price point
  • Good build quality
  • The rear panel smudges quite easily and is a fingerprint magnet, forcing you to wipe it clean multiple times during the day (you might want to use a case)

Display

  • The 6.2-inch HD+ display is pretty decent, and has good brightness levels (though colours on screen look somewhat washed out and don't pop as much as one would like, and the resolution is on the low side too)

Software

  • ColorOS UI adds some useful features like Face Unlock, and Game Space (which, kicks in when you're playing games and enhances the graphics and offloads some memory so that you have a smooth gaming experience)
  • ColorOS UI is not the most refined Android UI - it is on the heavy side, and can be inconsistent and unintuitive at places (for instance there is the inability to swipe to remove notifications - you're forced to swipe left on a notification and tap the delete option every time you want to clear your notifications, which is quite time consuming)

Performance

  • Performance is just about ok - the combination of the middling Snapdragon 450, the limited 2GB RAM, and a heavy ColorOS UI, means that there is the occasional stuttering and lags and things don't quite move as fluidly as you would hope

Camera

  • Average dual camera setup on the rear - the bokeh pictures come out ok, but generally colours are not very accurate, and the camera often overexposes or over-saturates the colours, and autofocus is on the slow side
  • The selfie camera is pretty average too - in broad daylight you may capture workable selfies, but the quality indoors and in low-light is very low

Audio

  • Decent loudspeaker

Battery

  • The highlight of the phone is its stellar battery life - you will get a good two days of battery life on average use
  • No fast charging support

More

  • On the whole, the A3s is a decent device on its own, especially because of it's stellar battery life, but its average cameras and performance will pull it back a little - it will find it difficult to compete with it's own cousin for instance, the Realme 1, which offers much more for a similar price - and if one is keen on getting a notched display, then the Honor 9N will again offer tough competition, with a higher resolution display, at a similar price point

  1. Priced too close to the Realme 1, which offers much more for this price
