2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 8 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Looks quite impressive, similar to the Vivo V5 Plus, which is more expensive - the faux-metal finish at the back feels solid
  • Feels good in the hand, and allows for fairly comfortable one-handed usage
  • The fingerprint scanner is placed on the front and is easy to reach


  • Decent display - the screen is bright, text appears crisp, and sunlight legibility is decent too
  • A full-HD resolution would have been nicer for the display


  • The iOS-styled Funtouch UI is quite iOS-like and has some useful software features like App Clone, split screen, one-handed mode, Smart Click, and Smart Motion gestures
  • The Funtouch UI packs in plenty of bloatware, some of which cant be uninstalled


  • Good performance with apps, games and multi-tasking


  • The highlight of the phone is the 20-megapixel front-facing camera with 'Moonlight Glow' front flash - the camera fares well in all kinds of situations - selfies taken in broad daylight or with sufficient light manage to show good amount of detail and proper colours - ones taken in low light have noise at the corners but are still better than what we get from other phones in the same price segment
  • The 13-megapixel rear camera is decent too - quick with focusing, and manages to capture some good detailed shots - the video recording at 1080p is good too


  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones
  • Good call quality


  • Good battery life - the phone manages to last over a day with heavy usage - with light usage could make it last a day and a half before you need to recharge
  • Good charging speed too - takes slightly less than 90 minutes to charge fully from zero
