2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Well built
  • Compact, and solid design, with a metal back
  • Comfortable to hold and use, with a slight arch around the back
  • Matte layer on the outside keeps the phone free from smudges
  • Bright display, with some useful fine-tuning options
  • Good speed/performance overall (although below the top-performing phones in this price range, like the Coolpad Note 3)
  • Vibe UI allows plenty of customization, is visually appealing, and has some nice looking themes
  • There is also a more stock-Android UI option, for users that prefer that
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Decent battery life - you can see through a whole day, at moderate usage levels
  • Pretty good rear and front cameras, especially for still photography
  • Good pair of booming stereo speakers
  • 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]
  • Average viewing angles on the display
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Video recording performance is let down by persistent focus-hunting by the camera
  • 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
