2-minute Review [Positives]
  • High quality design, fit, and finish
  • The back plate tapers along the edges and corners, resulting in a far more comfortable in-hand feel
  • Very fast and accurate fingerprint reader, at par with what is found with most high-end flagship smartphones
  • Decent display, with good color accuracy and viewing angles
  • Apart from unlocking the device, the fingerprint scanner can also be used to capture photos and videos, answer phone calls, stop alarms, bring down the notification shade by swiping down, and browse through photos in the gallery by swiping left or right, which are all useful features to have - these are the kind of small touches that make the phone much easier to use with one hand
  • Very good performance at this price point - everything is as fluid and responsive in everyday use, and the device also handles graphically-intensive gaming with little issue
  • Decent dual camera setup - the first phone in this price range to come with a dual-camera setup, allowing for a nice bokeh effect in pictures
  • The overall camera experience is pretty good too - it is fast to focus and capture photos, and the photos are pleasant
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent overall audio quality
  • Very good battery life, helped by a well optimized processor - you get as much as 1.5 days of battery life 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]
  • EMUI is bright and colorful, but somewhat cartoonish (although it can be easily replaced with a custom launcher)
  • The single bottom-mounted speaker is good but is easy to muffle with your hand when using the phone in the landscape orientation
  • Audio quality via headphones is average
  • Doesn't use the new USB-C standard
