We’re a fan of its media capabilities, a surprisingly usable rear camera and for those who need an affordable dual-SIM device, this is undoubtedly one handset we’d strongly recommend. Assuming it makes the jump from KitKat to Android JellyBean, the 52 Platinum should stay relevant for a little longer and whilst it definitely isn’t for everyone, it’s unquestionable right for a very specific group of users. We just hope you’ve found our review.
