2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 3 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Solidly built, no-frills design
  • The Lions 3’s compact form factor and brushed matte finish makes it comfortable to hold
  • While build quality is good, it is not metal like the Redmi 4
  • Lacks a fingerprint sensor
  • Weighs 167g, which is just a bit on the higher side for a 5-inch screen smartphone

Display

  • Good, sharp display - watching movies or browsing through webpages is a very satisfying experience - visibility from wide angles and under bright light is spot on too - on the whole the display is similar in quality to the Redmi 4 - the top phone in this price segment
  • The display is good, but does tend to smudge quite a bit

Software

  • Stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple - Android purists might find the UI more appealing than the more featured, but also more cluttered, MIUI on the Redmi 4

Performance

  • Day-to-day performance is reasonable, but a notch below the Snapdragon 435 equipped Redmi 4

Camera

  • Decent (thought not great) rear and front cameras - can do a reasonable job in good lighting - overall image quality is similar to the Redmi 4

Battery

  • Very good battery life - Intex packs in a 4, 000mAh battery which, on modest use, can easily give one and a half days of backup between two charges - which is at par with the backup you get from Redmi 4’s excellent 4, 100mAh battery
