2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Solid build quality
  • Nice, elegant design
  • Comfortable to hold
  • Water-resistant
  • Decent display - images and websites looked fairly crisp and sharp
  • Comes loaded with clean, near stock Android, with almost no bloatware
  • Decent speed/performance - pleasant to use in daily use
  • Decent rear camera - takes pretty good outdoor photos (in mixed light, it takes OK photos, and in low light, it struggles and images tend to have some noise)
  • Decent front camera too - skin tones looked fairly natural in selfies
  • Decent video recording performance - takes serviceable HD videos at 30 fps
  • Nice, loud front-facing speaker
  • Overall reliable hardware and software
  • Very good battery life - easily last for a little more than a day for moderate to heavy usage
  • Removable/replaceable battery
  • One the whole a good option for users looking for an decent device that’s solid, runs well, and has a battery that’ll last all day
  • 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 sunlight legibility of the display
  • Although performance in daily use is good enough, it tends to lag when playing games and taking panoramic photos
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • No gyroscope
  • Bundled charger has a slow charging speed - taking about 4 hours to full charge
  • 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
