2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good looking design, premium look and feel
  • Sturdy, splash resistant
  • Decent display - high contrast and decent sunlight legibility
  • Almost stock Android build keeps things nice and simple
  • Good front-facing 8MP cam - produces great selfies - detailed, and with pleasing skin tones
  • Good performance in daily use - though underpowered in the graphics department
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life
  • Clean audio output
  • 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]
  • Average rear camera - color reproduction, dynamic range and exposure could have been better
  • 1080p video recording from either camera is also uninspiring
  • Audio quality via headphones is average
  • Doesn't use the new USB-C standard
