PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 8 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Good build quality
  • Multi-purpose fingerprint sensor
  • Decent display with balanced colors, reasonable contrast ratio, and decent sunlight visibility
  • Decent mono speaker at the bottom
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a full 24 hours even with heavy use

What We Didn't

  • Generic design
  • Feels big and at 189 grams, it’s somewhat unwieldy, and not suited to single handed usage
  • MiFavor UI is not the most aesthetic or refined, with large icons that seem a little childish
  • Average performance, lags in games
  • Also tends to heat up quite easily, to about 39 degrees over 10 minutes of gaming, which leads the system to throttle
  • Average camera - feels like a two-year old camera - and is not competitive in today's market - struggles to focus sometimes, and is slow even when it does - image quality is average - doesn’t do very well with details either
  • On the whole, while the phone excels in battery life, it is outdone in most other departments by its competitors, so on the whole may not be a great choice
