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
  • Good build quality, with a metal frame
  • The matte texture offers decent amounts of grip
  • Overall - slim, light, and easy to live with
  • The fingerprint sensor works really well and is very quick in authentication - you can also use it to lock apps and files - overall it's one of the best fingerprint scanners in this price bracket
  • Decent 5.2-inch IPS display, with good brightness levels, color saturation, and viewing angles
  • ColourOS interface on top of Android works very well, and has an iOS influence, along with support for various gestures
  • Pretty good speed/performance - cruises through basic apps, and light games quite well
  • In good lighting conditions the front camera is pretty good (one of the best in this price bracket), and the back camera is decent - though, in poor lighting conditions, both struggle
  • Decent speaker - isn’t the loudest for media when there’s a lot of ambient noise - but suffices for alerts and ring-tones
  • Decent battery life - generally lasts a full day with moderate use
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
  • The processor tends to heat up when taxed - this includes using the front camera for more than 5 minutes at a stretch
  • No fast charging support
