It's all about the wide nut, I believe most ukes in the cheaper range have a 35 or 36mm nut, just an extra 2mm gives you much needed room for playing a D chord as a beginner.
The instrument is well made and has a much warmer tone than expected from a soprano, perhaps due to the arched back. It's also a nice colour and is quite charming.
The intonation is consistent with only a slight sharpness from the 11th and 12th frets, this may be due to setup but I don't know if any mass produced laminate ukulele in this price range is going to be perfectly crafted.
The only thing about the instrument that seems poor is the edges of the saddle, they're pretty sharp with very pointed corners, but I wouldn't want to try sanding them down and risk damaging the satin finish. It's not a big problem, but it wouldn't be very nice to catch your forearm against it when strumming.
All in all, I can't fault it for the price, I think you could spend double this without finding an improvement in feel or sound, it's earnest, it's warm and it's fantastic. You wouldn't regret buying this ukulele.
