2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Stylish looks with a glossy finish back, and a sleek profile
  • Modern, sharp front with a dewdrop notch
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Glossy back, as expected, is prone to scratches if not used with a protective cover (one is provided in the box)

Display

  • Nice display with wide viewing angles and adequate brightness levels

Software

  • The phone comes with a customized user interface based on Android 9.0 - the interface is fast to operate but you do get a bunch of pre-loaded bloatware apps too

Performance

  • Good day to day performance powered by the Helio P22 (similar to Snapdragon 625), and fairly smooth gaming performance (high-end games will run on low graphics though)

Camera

  • Average camera performance, both from the dual rear camera and single front camera - most photos clicked in daytime look good but on close inspection, you can see noise in dark areas - portrait mode too is average

Audio

  • Decent loudspeaker

Battery

  • Decent battery life with a 3500mAh battery - with moderate use, you will get a day of use

Verdict

  • On the whole, the Z93 is a decent phone, but will find it difficult to compete against the Xiaomis and Realmes of the world, that simply provide more value in these price brackets
