phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 8 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Premium design - the full metal finish evokes luxury and solidity
  • Handy, ergonomic design with a slightly curved back
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor (though recognition speed is not particularly fast)
  • Good 5.5-inch display, with good legibility under sunlight as well
  • The display also offers some useful customization options such as Bluelight filter, and Color Temperature control
  • Delivers impressive, smooth performance throughout - beating out most of its competitors
  • Decent 16-megapixel camera, that shows an ability to handle colours even in artificial/low indoor lighting
  • Battery has fast charging support

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The Infocus UI offers plenty of customizations like other Android UIs, but it doesn’t have the same visual sophistication that one gets in the UIs of Asus or Xiaomi phones, for instance, and looks dated
  • Battery life is average in spite of a good 3000 mAh capacity - you will need to top it up before the end of the day if you are a heavy user
