2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • Premium design, with a beautiful metal frame - one of the best looking devices in this segment
  • Curved frame around the edges provides a very good grip
  • CyanogenMod 12 UI over Android
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Good audio quality
  • Good call quality
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • Average display
  • Camera could have been better
  • Battery life could have been better
  • Bundled headsets are of mediocre quality
