PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 5 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Aesthetic unibody metal design
  • Light-weight
  • Feels compact to hold and results in easy handling, especially for people with small hands
  • Decent display - though resolution could have been better
  • Funtouch UI looks attractive, and offers a lot of useful customization/gesture options
  • Decent performance - performs well with multi-tasking, and does reasonably well with games too (though is definitely not as fast as the other top performers in this price range, like the Redmi Note 4)
  • Decent rear camera - images turn out to be crisp, clear and bring out good color - daylight and macro shots came out nice - the flash is also good and is not very over bearing - low light images come out grainy though
  • The front camera is decent for selfies especially if there is good lighting
  • Decent video recording performance too
  • The audio experience using earphones is decent
  • The speaker output is loud and clear
  • Good call quality
  • Pretty good battery life, with special low power consumption and super power-saving modes (though again not as good as the best performers in this price bracket, like the Redmi Note 4)

What We Didn't

  • Does not come with a fingerprint sensor which is a bit of a letdown at this price
