Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Very good build quality
  • Well balanced design
  • Good display with vivid colors and great viewing angles
  • Simple, stock Android interface
  • Smooth, slick performance
  • Decent camera
  • Decent front-facing stereo speakers
  • Good audio quality
  • Good dual SIM management features
  • Good battery life
  • Compact, smart looking, premium design with a metal build - very similar to the Redmi Note 3, but more easy to handle (because of the smaller size)
  • Excellent ergonomics, with the curves on the back making the phone very comfortable to hold
  • Light-weight with an excellent weight distribution, despite the large battery it holds inside
  • Nice, vibrant, and bright display, with excellent touch-responsiveness, and good viewing angles
  • MIUI is a one of the better Android skins around
  • Good speed/performance (though multi-tasking performance is a notch below the Redmi 3s Prime because of lesser RAM)
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good audio quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • No major negatives
  • Camera is decent, and almost at par with the more expensive Redmi Note 3, but still could have been better, especially with low light performance
  • Loudspeaker volume could have been better
