2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • 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] N/A
  • Audio quality via headphones is average
  • Doesn't use the new USB-C standard
