2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent, top-notch build quality
  • Handsome, classy, all-metal design
  • Slim body
  • Basic back cover included in the retail package
  • Excellent, fast fingerprint scanner, embedded in the home button
  • Very good display with exceptional brightness levels, natural looking tones, good contrast levels, and excellent viewing angles
  • ColorOS is fluid, and works well, with some nice gesture controls
  • Very little bloatware
  • Smooth overall performance
  • Decent overall rear camera, especially for still photography
  • Very good front camera - easily one of the best selfie phones in this price bracket
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life - lasts a full day with moderate use
  • 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]
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • 1080p video recording quality is subpar
  • Misses out on fast charging support
  • A little bit on the heavy side
  • 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
