2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 9 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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

Display

  • Nice, vibrant, and bright display, with excellent touch-responsiveness, and good viewing angles

Software

  • MIUI is a one of the better Android skins around

Performance

  • Very good speed/performance - one of the best in this price range

Camera

  • Decent camera
  • 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

Audio

  • Good audio quality
  • Loudspeaker volume could have been better

Battery

  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
