2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Sturdy build
  • Premium looks with a metallic unibody design
  • The slightly curved back design ups the comfort factor
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor (embedded in the home button)


  • Very good display with rich colors, sharp text, and good visibility under bright light
  • While the display is good, it is not the best available option at this price point - the likes of LeEco Le Max 2 come with bigger 5.7-inch display and higher screen resolution of 2, 560x1, 440p


  • Gesture support for additional navigation using the home button
  • Amigo UI on top of Android has plenty of customisation options such as themes, as well as additional features like the battery saver mode (although it is a little cluttered)
  • Also has a split screen mode, to run 2 apps at a time on the screen


  • Good performance in most tasks and games - with no noticeable delays while multi-tasking or gaming
  • While it is has a reliable processor, it is not as powerful as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 based LeEco Le Max 2 or the Mi5


  • Slightly protruded camera
  • Average rear and front cameras - detailing is especially poor in low light conditions
  • The phone also tends to heat up when using the cameras for a long time


  • Decent battery life - lasts a day on a single charge - with light to moderate use
  • No fast charging support on the battery


  • The chamfered edges along the spine have also been covered with a paint to ensure the edges don’t feel sharp while you are holding the phone
  • While the phone feels handy, it is not very light, at 170g
  • Occasional WiFi connectivity issues
