2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 18+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Stylish, premium design, and striking aesthetics - curved-edge metal frame with both front and back glass - with a 15-layer "light-catching finish" for the back that plays with ambient light in a way that looks great!
  • Incredibly fast, accurate fingerprint scanner
  • All glass design attracts smudges/ fingerprints and is slippery (so using a case is a good idea)

Display

  • Very good, bright display

Software

  • Huawei's EMUI looks good, and a has an iPhone-like app-drawer-less interface

Performance

  • Very good speed/performance
  • While the phone performance is pretty good, it doesn't hold up against the top performing Snapdragon 820 phones that rule the market currently

Camera

  • Superlative rear camera with a dual lens setup - overall, one of the best cameras on a smartphone - and comparable to the very good camera of it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Good front camera, too
  • Video recording quality could be better

Audio

  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality

Battery

  • Good battery life - should get you through the day comfortably - although not as good as it's top competitor - the OnePlus 3
  • Fast charging support (full recharge in under 100 minutes) - although again not as fast as the "dash charging" on OnePlus 3
