2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Stylish design - the lustreless metal back gives it a solid feel and improves grip quality too - in terms of overall looks, it matches up well to the design and looks of some of the more expensive smartphones
  • Decent fingerprint sensor
  • To keep things nice and simple, Kult has used a stock Android interface, along with some add-ons like panic button, double tap to wake, and gesture support
  • Decent, steady performance for casual use, and some light games
  • Decent rear camera - focusing is a tad slow, but image quality is good
  • Decent front 8 MP camera - takes good looking selfies and has a front facing flash too
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts a day on one charge
  • Has dedicated dual SIM slots and a separate micro SD card slot, which is always nice
  • Top-notch build quality
  • The polished all-metal back of the Redmi 4 makes this phone look more premium than its predecessor (and actually more similar to the more expensive Redmi Note 4)
  • Compact, and quite usable with just one hand - fits well in the hand
  • Fingerprint sensor works well, and is conveniently located
  • Nice 5-inch HD (720x1280) IPS display with 2.5D curved-edge glass - bright, sharp, and with decent viewing angles
  • Xiaomi's MIUI skin is one of the more refined Android UIs - it is clean, polished, and has a bunch of added functionality - Dual Apps, Quick Ball, One-handed mode, Child Mode, Second Space
  • Decent overall performance - on par with those of other phones powered by the Snapdragon 430 series processor
  • Good video playback performance
  • Nice attention to detail overall - such as a protective ring around the camera lens
  • Decent rear camera - a definite improvement over the Redmi 3S - is quick at focusing, and images are fairly detailed and sharp
  • Video recording at 720p and 1080p is decent too
  • Decent front camera - pictures taken in good light have a good amount of detail and decent colour tone
  • Decent call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Excellent battery life - with moderate use, lasts up to 2 days - there are also power saving modes to help squeeze more life out of each charge
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Bulky - the Gladiator is a big and burly smartphone and Kult hasn’t tried to mask it with rounded edges or thin bezels
  • Screen resolution is on the low side and could have been better
  • The performance is decent in regular use, but multi-tasking or more resource intensive apps/games make the phone struggle - so the phone is only suitable for casual use
  • Camera performance is improved, but ordinary low-light shots and slow processing in HDR mode still leave something to be desired
  • The hybrid dual-SIM, combined with a limited 16GB of storage means that if you need both the Dual SIM functionality, as well as a memory card, you will be left with no option
