2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Premium, unibody design, with a gold lining running throughout the corners at the back of the handset
  • The metal sides offer decent grip
  • Good display - sharp, fairly bright, and with impressive sunlight legibility
  • Amigo UI over Android looks decent, and comes with a lot of add-on features
  • Decent speed/performance (although behind the top performers in this price bracket)
  • Decent rear and front cameras, during daytime conditions
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
  • High-end, premium metal design, and excellent build quality - befitting a much more expensive phone
  • Fast fingerprint reader
  • Impressive, bright display, with great color accuracy
  • MIUI on top of Android works great, runs fast, and has excellent theming and customization options, making it easy to find the look you want
  • Powerful Spandragon 625 chipset ensures smooth, effortless performance all throughout
  • Pretty decent camera - although it tends to produce photos a little bit on the soft side - but overall it's good, and a significant improvement over the Redmi Note 3
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Top-notch battery life - again, improved even over the already very good Redmi Note 3 - even with heavy usage, you can get close to two full days out of it
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Display is a bit smudge prone
  • Comes with a lot of bloatware pre-installed (that can't be uninstalled)
  • The front camera performs just about average in low-light conditions, in spite of the included front flash
  • Slightly heavy for its size
  • Corners of the handset could have been more rounded for ease of use
  • Audio quality via headphones is average
  • Doesn't use the new USB-C standard
