2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Solid build
  • Good looks

  • With a 5.2-inch display, the phone is relatively ergonomic, compact and easy to handle (compared to it's top competitors in the price bracket which are all 5.5-inchers)
  • Decent, sharp display, with good sunlight legibility
  • Huawei's EMUI on top of Android works well
  • Smooth overall performance
  • Decent cameras on the front and back
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor on the back
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones
  • Good battery life - easily lasts a day with moderate use
  • Good, solid phone in this price bracket even though it lacks the wow factors of some of it's competitors, like a giant battery, or a larger display
  • Premium metal design, with amazing attention to detail
  • Top-notch build quality
  • Brilliant in-hand feel, with edges that curve perfectly
  • Good display with vivid colors, wide viewing angles, and good sunlight visibility
  • MIUI is one of the better interfaces built over Android, and has a lot of useful functionality, but is still simple to use
  • Top-level, power packed performance with best-in-class hardware - and 3GB of RAM results in very good multi-tasking performance too
  • Excellent battery life - this phone is an absolute road-runner
  • Excellent, responsive fingerprint scanner
  • Good call quality
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Tends to heat up a bit, when put under stress
  • No fast charging support (which is present in some of its competitors)

  • Camera is pretty decent, but could have been better
