2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 3 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Has a simple, attractive, rounded design - not too dissimilar from the Xiaomi Redmi 4
  • Easy to hold and grip
  • Both power button and volume keys on the right are conveniently placed for single-handed operation
  • The fingerprint sensor just beneath the camera can unlock the device and open select applications, answer calls and even play or pause music
  • The metal finish gathers plenty of fingerprints and is very difficult to clean - the same goes for the glass screen on the front, which becomes a smudgy mess rather quickly
  • The volume rocker and the power/unlock buttons feel a bit stiff even though they have sufficient travel
  • Unusually large camera protrusion for a smartphone that is already on the thick side

Software

  • Stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple

Performance

  • Decent performance in daily use
  • While the performance is decent in daily use, the humble hardware means that heavier apps/games, and multi-tasking will make the phone lag

Camera

  • Decent front camera - can take some great-looking photos (both standard and HDR modes) provided you subjects can stay still
  • Average rear camera
  • The camera is also a little bit slow to capture images especially in HDR mode

Audio

  • Good call quality
  • Music quality when plugged-in using third-party headphones is strictly average
  • Speaker is not too good, in terms of both volume, and quality - the placement could have been better too

Battery

  • Decent battery life - will last the day with moderate use
  • Battery life is decent, but given the battery mAH capacity could have been better

More

  • Has dedicated slots for dual sim cards and the microSD slot, which is nice
  • A bit on the heavy and chubby side
  • Display is average on the whole - colour saturation, viewing angles, and sunlight legibility could have been better
