Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 6 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • 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
  • Nice, sharp display
  • 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
  • Pretty good, and dependable front camera
  • Good battery life - will comfortably last the day on a single charge
  • Decent battery charging speed - takes 2 hours from 0 to 100%
What we didn't
  • The fingerprint sensor is a bit on the slow side, when unlocking the device from standby mode
  • 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
  • While battery life is decent, it again falls behind its primary competitor - the Redmi 4, which provide almost 50% more battery life
