2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good build quality
  • Aesthetic design - brushed metal at the back gives the phone a premium look and offers good grip
  • The 5-inch display feels compact and is easy for one handed operations, and for people with small hands
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor

Display

  • Decent display with vibrant colors, and good viewing angles
  • Display is a little reflective, and prone to smudges
  • Display resolution could have been better

Software

  • Funtouch OS over Android looks attractive and has some useful added functionality (though it is a little cluttered)

Performance

  • Decent speed/performance

Camera

  • Decent front (selfie) camera
  • Average rear camera - daylight images come a little washed out, while low light images have plenty of noise

Audio

  • Loud and clear speaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Average call quality

Battery

  • Good battery life - easily lasts a day with moderate to heavy use
  • Fast charging support

More

  • Heats up a bit when playing heavy games
