Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Large battery
The 4100mAh battery is very big, especially when you consider the weaker, less power hungry specs. GSMArena rates the battery at 107 - an extremely high score. 3G talk time was tested to be nearly 34 hours, web browsing was over 15 hours, and video playback was nearly 18 hours.
Pro Can work as a universal remote
While all the rage in 2014, many phones released since then have omitted the IR blaster. It is useful for controlling anything that has a remote - the TV, stereo, and in some cases fans and air conditioners.
Pro Decent display
The 5" 720p display has good color reproduction, and sufficient resolution to make a good viewing experience. Outdoors it can be hard to read in direct sunlight, although if you block the sun with one hand it is legible.
Pro Manual camera controls
The default camera app includes manual controls - something which is typically reserved for high end phones.
There are 2 SIM slots (one of them doubles as a SD card slot so you can either use a second SIM or SD slot, but not both at the same time), allowing for dual-SIM use. This could be useful for users who have a work number and a personal number, but also if you need one SIM for calls/texts and another SIM for data.
Pro Loud speaker
The speaker gets very loud - certainly louder than the average phone speaker.
Pro Good performnace
The Snapdragon 616 scores just over 3000 in GeekBench 3 which is a good result. In all but the most demanding games it performs flawlessly even while gaming.
Con Hard to see buttons at night
The 3 buttons below the screen of the phone have no backlighting, making use in the dark a bit tougher.
Con Weak vibration
When inside the pocket, it's hard to feel it while you're walking unless your clothes tightly fit your body.
Con Mediocre camera performance
Images come out over-sharpened, and the dynamic range is limited. Low-light shots come out noisy.
Con Poor speaker quality
The speaker grill is on the back, which projects sound away from you unless you cup your hand around it. The sound it creates is also distorted at higher volumes.
Con No Google apps
Out-of-the-box, there are no Google apps installed. That means no Gmail, Play Store, YouTube...and the list goes on. You can sideload the Play Store and install the apps that way, although there's always some risk involved with sideloading and it isn't something most people are comfortable with.
