Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Good build quality
  • Pleasing, compact design (very iPhone like)
  • Good display, especially in indoor conditions
  • Intex's custom UI over Android looks neat (although it does have some bloatware)
  • Multi-lingual support
  • Good speed/performance in daily use (although falls behind its top competitor - the Redmi 3S Prime)
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Decent rear and front cameras
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts a day with moderate use
  • 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]
  • Average sunlight legibility of the display
  • 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
