2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks and feel fantastic - with an all-metal unibody design - arguably the best designed phone in this price bracket
  • Compact size, with a 5-inch display
  • The fingerprint sensor is a bit on the slow side, when unlocking the device from standby mode

Display

  • Nice, sharp display

Performance

  • Decent performance powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 under the hood, with most apps and games running smoothly, and loading times on par with other devices that run the same chipset

Camera

  • Pretty good, and dependable front camera
  • Average rear camera - colour saturation is sometimes too high and sometimes on the lower side, details are sometimes low and focus sometimes goes wrong - the camera on its primary competitor, the Redmi 4 is definitely better

Battery

  • Good battery life - will comfortably last the day on a single charge
  • Decent battery charging speed - takes 2 hours from 0 to 100%
  • While battery life is decent, it again falls behind its primary competitor - the Redmi 4, which provide almost 50% more battery life
