2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Display lacks Gorilla Glass protection
  • The metal rim on the sides are the back are prone to scratches
  • Video recording quality of the camera is affected by an over eager auto-focus
  • 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
