2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good build quality
  • Nice, classy, premium design
  • Light-weight
  • The soft matte finish, the curved back design and flat edges along the spine adds to the good grip of the phone
  • Decent, large display - with rich colors, wide viewing angles, and good sunlight legibility - resolution is on the lower end though
  • The display also, thankfully, does not smudge easily like other budget phones
  • Colorful UI, with attractive themes
  • Decent performance in day-to-day use - handles social networking, web browsing, movie playback and YouTube videos quite well (although it struggles with more heavy tasks)
  • Good front camera - comfortably one of the best in this price range
  • Decent battery life - lasts the day with light to 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)
  • Decent camera
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good audio quality
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Average rear camera - not the best when it comes to detail and colour reproduction
  • 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
