2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality
  • Premium design with unibody metal frame
  • Good ergonomics - easy to use with one hand
  • Good display - good brightness levels, good contrast ratio, and good sunlight legibility
  • EMUI interface over Android
  • Good speed/performance
  • Very good camera
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life
  • Stylish, premium design, and striking aesthetics - curved-edge metal frame with both front and back glass - with a 15-layer "light-catching finish" for the back that plays with ambient light in a way that looks great!
  • Very good, bright display
  • Huawei's EMUI looks good, and a has an iPhone-like app-drawer-less interface
  • Very good speed/performance
  • Superlative rear camera with a dual lens setup - overall, one of the best cameras on a smartphone - and comparable to the very good camera of it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Good front camera, too
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Good battery life - should get you through the day comfortably - although not as good as it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Fast charging support (full recharge in under 100 minutes) - although again not as fast as the "dash charging" on OnePlus 3
  • Incredibly fast, accurate fingerprint scanner
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • No Major Negatives!
  • All glass design attracts smudges/ fingerprints and is slippery (so using a case is a good idea)
  • Video recording quality could be better
  • While the phone performance is pretty good, it doesn't hold up against the top performing Snapdragon 820 phones that rule the market currently
