GHI Expert Verdict

Our GHI experts were impressed at this smartphone’s great value. Though its real crowning glory was the camera, which took great portraits and has an ultra dark mode that worked wonders for late-night snaps. Plus, we loved the video quality which even stayed stable when we were walking around.

The battery further left an impression on our testers. It lasted an impressive 17 hours and only took around an hour to recharge to full. However, the handset itself wasn’t as speedy. We noticed it was quite slow at opening apps and browsing the web. Meanwhile, those with smaller hands noticed that the smartphone was a little uncomfortable to hold while making calls for long periods of time.
