Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 13 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Premium build quality
  • All-metal unibody design
  • Brilliant, massive 6.4-inch screen that gets good marks on image quality, sharpness and brightness
  • Lively and simple Xiaomi interface, that is comfortably on of the better Android UIs around
  • Very good speed/performance for the class - and a notch above the Mi Max, because of the higher RAM and the newer processor
  • Wired audio quality is perfect - loud and with very little distortion
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Good call quality
  • Astounding battery life, easily one of the best ever on a smartphone, and with particularly great web browsing times - easily lasts 2 days of active use
What we didn't
  • The phone's enormous size makes it hard to use one-handed
  • It's also heavy and will stick out uncomfortably in your pant's pocket
  • Given the gigantic size, the phone is primarily targeted at those users who consume a lot of media on their device, or want a combined phone-tablet - for more regular users the compromise of a difficult-to-handle size might not be worth it
  • Average sunlight legibility on the display
  • Loudspeaker performance could have been better
  • Average front and rear cameras, that could have been better especially in low light conditions
