2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Solid build quality
  • Good, simple design
  • Good grip
  • Nano coating for protection against rain and water spills
  • Very good display - the colors looks real, the text is crisp, and the viewing angles are flawless
  • Lenovo's Vibe UI over Android
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Decent camera
  • Excellent battery life (lasts 2 days, with moderate use)
  • Handy battery switch that can turn on the battery-saver mode
  • 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
  • Good speed/performance (though multi-tasking performance is a notch below the Redmi 3s Prime because of lesser RAM)
  • Decent camera
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good audio quality
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • A bit clunky, owing to its size
  • 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
