2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good looking phone, with a pleasing design and form factor - with a metal unibody design and a sturdy build
  • Slim, sleek and feels great in hand
  • Decent display, with vibrant colors (resolution is on the low side though)
  • Runs an almost stock-like Android interface keeping things nice and simple
  • Decent performance - no hiccups or slowdowns in regular use - you can play casual games, watch YouTube videos, browse the web, take pictures and the phone still holds well - however, it will struggle with high-ends games
  • Delivers clear, sharp sound through a single, bottom-mounted speaker
  • 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]
  • The 13-megapixel rear camera on the Eluga Mark 2 is average - focusing is not ideal, and colours are muted as well - low-light photographs are disappointing too
  • Average battery life - even with a 720p display and a not-so-powerful processor, the phone struggles to last 7 hours by the end of a working day
  • 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
