summarizing opinion across 7 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Solid build, even though it has a plastic body
  • Lightweight design
  • Bright display
  • The user interface is near-stock Android, keeping things nice and simple
  • There is also TronX, Smartron’s own app which gives you access to the Smartron store, unlimited cloud storage through tcloud, a support centre and the user forums for community discussions around the device
  • Smooth, slick performance - you’re unlikely to have any issues with multi-tasking or graphics-intensive tasks such as gaming or videos - more powerful than some of its main competitors like the Moto G5 Plus, and the Honor 6x
  • Modern USB Type-C port for charging and data transfers
  • Quick charging support via Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0

What We Didn't

  • In a time when even phones priced at well under what the srt.phone goes for come with metal bodies, the Smartron comes with an all-plastic build - while this does keep the phone light and allows for the replaceable back panel - it also has the phone feeling not quite as premium or good as devices such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Moto G5 Plus
  • The power button is oddly located at the top of the device, which is a strange and inconvenient position particularly considering that at 5.5 inches, this isn’t a small phone
  • Occasional heating issues
  • There is a bit of bloatware to be found, with certain Microsoft apps such as Skype and the Office suite being locked onto the device with no option to uninstall
  • Average rear camera - the color in pictures isn’t quite as vibrant as it could be, and there’s a fair amount of grain visible even in well-lit conditions
  • Average front camera too
  • Average speaker output
  • Battery life could be better, and is considerably weaker than on phones powered by the Snapdragon 625 SoC, such as the Redmi Note 4 and Moto G5 Plus - with careful use, you can get the phone through a full day on a single charge, but intensive use rapidly drains the battery and with heavy use will need you to recharge at least once before your day is done
