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

  • Decent build quality
  • Being glossy, the display is also prone to fingerprints

Display

  • Average display with small viewing angles, and no ambient light sensor / proximity sensor

Software

  • Lots of pre-loaded apps including Maps provided by HERE, NewsHunt, ESPN Cricinfo, Cricket Game, Facebook and McAfee Security
  • Tizen OS interface takes some time getting used to
  • Tizen app store is tiny in comparison to Android, or iOS, or even Windows Phone, and missed out on a lot of important apps (Google apps, Twitter etc)
  • Tizen supports Android apps, but it's only up to developers to port it to Tizen platform - currently the selection is very limited

Performance

  • Decent speed/performance

Camera

  • Average camera

Audio

  • Good loudspeaker
  • Average audio output through headset

Battery

  • Decent battery life
