phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 4 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good full HD display - bright, crisp and vivid - playing games and watching videos on the smartphone is a delightful experience - the viewing angles are great as well
  • The UI is simple, and close to stock Android
  • Good speed/performance - great with multi-tasking - watching videos and browsing multiple tabs is smooth too
  • Decent front camera with realistic color reproduction
  • Good battery life - easily last for a day on moderate usage
  • Fast charging speed

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The design looks very plasticky and definitely not what you would expect of a high-end smartphone in this price bracket
  • The rear looks particularly ugly with a big circular camera lens on top and a metallic silver fingerprint sensor (equally big) just beneath it
  • The USB type-C slot at the bottom is a bit towards the right, making it look like a manufacturing defect - the slot would have looked better if it was simply placed in the center
  • The fingerprint scanner is not the fastest
  • Although overall performance is good, it lags behind the top performers in this price bracket - the OnePlus 3 and Xiaomi Mi 5
  • Tends to get hot when playing games
  • Mediocre rear camera - the pictures clicked in sunlight tend to look a bit over saturated, noisy and miss details - colour reproduction too is not up to the mark
