It comes with a metallic build which makes the phone a bit heavy. However after using it for a bit you get used to the weight. The build also gives the phone a solid feel which is nice.
I like that they included a dedicated memory card slot instead of offering the choice of either a memory card or an extra SIM.
It’s pretty fast on 4G Internet so far. 3G is slow in some areas. The call quality is good also so far.
3. Phone performance
The processor and the memory are working nicely and so far the phone experience is great. I tested it by running Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and SnapChat at the same time and it worked just fine. So far so good there.
The camera is a definite upgrade. The back camera is especially impressive although I have used it in mostly well lighted environments. Will definitely try it out in low light and test the HDR. The camera app is a bit confusing and it took me a minute to find some settings. Also looking foward to test out the pro feature as well.
5. Fingerprint scanner
They fingerprint software is on point and reads fingerprints uick, fast and in a hurry. You can put upto 5 different fingerprints. I like that you can use it to lock apps and also hide stuff like pictures and video. You can also power on the phone by putting your finger on the scanner.
6. Battery and charging
It charges quite fast because of the fast charging feature. The battery has given me about 7 hours with heavy use. I doubt it will get better than that but we’ll see.
The screen is nicely bright and is legible even in the sun. It is best to leave the brightness in automatic when going out in the sun.
That’s it for now. I will use the phone for a bit longer and then write a proper review..
