2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Premium aluminium body design, with a build quality that's comparable to much more expensive flagship phones
  • Quick, accurate fingerprint reader
  • The 5.5-inch display is consistently good in all areas - brightness, contrast, and sunlight legibility
  • Mostly stock Android UI helps in keeping things simple and clean
  • Decent rear camera - images shot in good light tend to have good detail and depth
  • Decent video recording quality too - good sharpness, contrast, vibrancy levels
  • Decent autofocus-enabled selfie camera - produces sharp selfies across more varied scenarios - color rendering is on-point too
  • Very good pair of stereo speakers - it's great to have spatial audio output on a phone in this price range - loudness is also above average - and overall audio quality is good
  • Decent (though not great) battery life - will last the work day
  • Sturdy polycarbonate body with a metallic finish
  • Slim and light
  • The fingerprint sensor is quick in scanning fingers and unlocks the device quickly
  • Decent, bright 5.5-inch full HD display, though color reproduction could be better
  • Good set of dual front-facing cameras form the highlight of the phone - let you capture sharp selfies, as well as wide-angle group photos - the cameras perform especially well outdoors, with the photos look bright and sharp - this is arguably the best selfie camera in this price bracket
  • Good battery life - lasts the entire day with moderate usage
  • Reasonably good charging speed - fully charges in about an-hour-and-a-half
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The fingerprint reader is a bit thin and placed a bit low, so can take some time getting used to
  • No notification LED
  • The Snapdragon 430 chipset is a bit dated - while it handles UI navigation and basic tasks just fine, it does tend to hiccup when presented with more intense loads - many competing phones in this price bracket have better, more modern chipsets
  • Tends to get a little warm when pushed
  • No support for fast charging (as is present in some of its competitors)
  • ColorOS UI over Android is decent (and heavily inspired by iOS) but something simple such as stock Android would have been better
  • Powered by a mid-tier MediaTek chipset, which is decent but definitely isn’t as powerful and efficient as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC that powers some of its competitors - the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo P2
  • Rear camera could have been better - the photos are sometimes overexposed, and at other times appear dull, even in bright outdoor conditions
