2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Premium, unibody design, with a gold lining running throughout the corners at the back of the handset
  • The metal sides offer decent grip
  • Good display - sharp, fairly bright, and with impressive sunlight legibility
  • Amigo UI over Android looks decent, and comes with a lot of add-on features
  • Decent speed/performance (although behind the top performers in this price bracket)
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Decent rear and front cameras, during daytime conditions
  • Decent battery life - 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
  • Very good speed/performance - one of the best in this price range
  • Decent camera
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
  • Good audio quality
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Slightly heavy for its size
  • Corners of the handset could have been more rounded for ease of use
  • Display is a bit smudge prone
  • Comes with a lot of bloatware pre-installed (that can't be uninstalled)
  • The front camera performs just about average in low-light conditions, in spite of the included front flash
  • 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
