Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Good build quality
  • Nice metal unibody design and brushed metal finish - feels good to hold
  • Smaller and slimmer than the K4 Note
  • Bundled clear cover for protecting the phone
  • Good display - solid brightness levels, contrast ratio, sunlight legibility and viewing angles
  • Display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection unlike the K4 Note
  • Lenovo‚Äôs Vibe UI adds some useful features on top of Android
  • Good speed/performance, including with games
  • Multitasking is smooth too, thanks to the ample RAM
  • Built-in support for VR glasses, similar to the K4 Note (ANT VR headset has to be purchased separately)
  • Decent, fast rear camera, especially for daylight shots - macro shots are good too and HDR shots came out well
  • The 8MP front-facing camera is good for selfies and video chats - colors are vibrant and the images are sharp as well
  • Fast fingerprint sensor
  • Thanks to Dolby Atmos, Wolfson WM8281 audio codec and 1.5W speaker, loudspeaker output is good and clear even in full volume
  • Audio output through headphones is good as well
  • Good call quality
  • Good battery life - a definite improvement over the K4 Note - lasts a full day
  • Useful power saving modes to further reduce battery consumption
  • Premium build quality
  • All-metal unibody design
  • Brilliant, massive 6.4-inch screen that gets good marks on image quality, sharpness and brightness
  • Lively and simple Xiaomi interface, that is comfortably on of the better Android UIs around
  • Very good speed/performance for the class - and a notch above the Mi Max, because of the higher RAM and the newer processor
  • Wired audio quality is perfect - loud and with very little distortion
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Good call quality
  • Astounding battery life, easily one of the best ever on a smartphone, and with particularly great web browsing times - easily lasts 2 days of active use
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Hybrid dual SIM slot lets you either use dual SIMS or a memory card, but not both together
  • No special support for quick charging unlike some of its competitors
  • Low-light camera performance of the phone is strictly average - with plenty of noise in the shots
  • The phone's enormous size makes it hard to use one-handed
  • It's also heavy and will stick out uncomfortably in your pant's pocket
  • Given the gigantic size, the phone is primarily targeted at those users who consume a lot of media on their device, or want a combined phone-tablet - for more regular users the compromise of a difficult-to-handle size might not be worth it
  • Average sunlight legibility on the display
  • Loudspeaker performance could have been better
  • Average front and rear cameras, that could have been better especially in low light conditions
