phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 2 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Designed to get attention - gold plated frame along the spine and shiny check box pattern on the back panel gives it flamboyant look
  • Good ergonomics with a curved design around the edges on the back panel
  • Light and compact form factor - fits well even into small hands - and allows for easy one hand use
  • Good display - scores well in terms of color rendering, video experience, viewing angles, and sunlight legibility
  • Asahi Dragon Trail Glass protection for the display
  • Simple, stock Android UI, similar to Nexus and Motorola phones
  • Includes useful preloaded apps like the Eros Now app (with six months of premium content for free), and SoS-Be Safe app
  • Delivers a largely smooth and consistent performance, even with a modest MediaTek processor - handle most games and apps well, even with multi-tasking
  • 32GB of internal storage
  • Good 3, 000mAh battery - lasts the whole day on a single charge
  • Decent rear cameras - colors look rich and accurate - however sharpness levels are low, and low light pictures are average
  • Decent front camera - the picture quality is clear enough for social media posts
  • Overall, this is a well-grounded phone that gets the basics right and can be a good option for users looking for a simple, small screen phone

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Both the display and back are fairly prone to smudges
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Although the performance is good overall, it falls behind its top competitor - the Redmi 3S Prime
  • The battery too, while good, is not as great as the Redmi 3S Prime
