phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 9 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Solid build quality, and good-looking design
  • The back plate tapers along the edges and corners, resulting in a far more comfortable in-hand feel
  • Very fast and accurate fingerprint reader, at par with what is found with most high-end flagship smartphones
  • Apart from unlocking the device, the fingerprint scanner can also be used to capture photos and videos, answer phone calls, stop alarms, bring down the notification shade by swiping down, and browse through photos in the gallery by swiping left or right, which are all useful features to have - these are the kind of small touches that make the phone much easier to use with one hand
  • Very good performance at this price point - everything is as fluid and responsive in everyday use, and the device also handles graphically-intensive gaming with little issue
  • Good dual camera setup - the first phone in this price range to come with a dual-camera setup, allowing for a nice bokeh effect in pictures
  • The overall camera experience is good too - it is fast to focus and capture photos, and the photos are pleasant, especially for a mid-range smartphone - the photos come with good color reproduction, are well detailed, and the camera does a good job with balancing highlights and shadows, which is rare in this price range - it also performs fairly well in low-light situations
  • Very good battery life, helped by a well optimized processor - you get as much as 1.5 days of battery life with moderate use

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • While the display is decent overall, colors appear a little washed out
  • EMUI is bright and colorful, but somewhat cartoonish (although it can be easily replaced with a custom launcher)
  • The single bottom-mounted speaker is on the quieter side, and as is the case with any bottom-firing speaker, it is easy to muffle with your hand when using the phone in the landscape orientation
