2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 3 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Generic looks
  • Because of the big bezels and frame, the phone ends up being pretty large for a 5-inch screen device

Display

  • Average display - there is a high color shift just a few degrees off straight on - the screen looks passable when you look at it head on but moving even slightly over to the side and the change in color gets very off-putting

Software

  • Almost stock Android interface keeps things nice and simple
  • Most of the customisation is useful and in the form of gesture support both for the screen as well as the fingerprint sensor

Performance

  • Predictably average performance given the budget specs - games take a bit longer to start up and this is one area where the lower end specifications are easy to make out

Camera

  • Predictably average camera - as is true of most phones in the budget to mid segment, you can expect passable photos only if the lighting is really good - dynamic range is limited too - indoor photo quality is pretty ordinary

Battery

  • Battery life is a bit of a hit or miss - many of the competing phones offer better battery life

More

  • On the whole, the phone significantly falls behind the likes of the Redmi 3S which offers a much larger battery and better display for the same price
