2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good build quality
  • Aesthetic design - brushed metal at the back gives the phone a premium look and offers good grip
  • The 5-inch display feels compact and is easy for one handed operations, and for people with small hands
  • Decent display with vibrant colors, and good viewing angles
  • Funtouch OS over Android looks attractive and has some useful added functionality (though it is a little cluttered)
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Loud and clear speaker
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
  • Decent front (selfie) camera
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good battery life - easily lasts a day with moderate to heavy use
  • Fast charging support
  • 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

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Display is a little reflective, and prone to smudges
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • Average rear camera - daylight images come a little washed out, while low light images have plenty of noise
  • Average call quality
  • Heats up a bit when playing heavy games
  • 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
