2-Minute Review

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

Design

  • Nice, stylish design
  • The back panel is made of good quality plastic with a fabric like texture on it - not only does it give the phone a distinct look but also keeps the back clean from smudges
  • Compact - it weighs just 145g and is 7.5mm thick which is impressive even by the standards of a small screen phone

Display

  • Decent 5-inch HD display - handles colours well, has wide viewing angles and good legibility under bright light - although resolution is on the low side

Software

  • Almost stock Android interface - keeps things nice and simple
  • Overall the phone is just about decent in terms of software and design, but falls way behind its top competitors (like the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime) on the spec sheet, performance and battery backup

Performance

  • Decent overall performance driven by MediaTek’s modest MT6737 quad-core processor with 3GB RAM - works well for most everyday tasks - although falls behind the top competition

Camera

  • Average camera - feels a bit slow and inconsistent - even in daytime shots, colours look washed and the overall image looks a little dull - low light results are ordinary too

Battery

  • Battery backup should have been better - barely lasts a whole day on modest use
