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

  • Classy design - one of the few budget smartphones that come with a full metal exterior
  • Front facing fingerprint sensor is easy to set-up and quite accurate

Display

  • Good display, at par with its top competitor - the Redmi 3s Prime - legibility under bright light is good and so is visibility from odd angles

Software

  • Meizu's FlymeOS interface on top of Android is simple and relatively clutter-free

Performance

  • Decent performance - can handle most tasks and games comfortably and without heating issues

Camera

  • Rear camera works decently well in outdoor sunny conditions, and colours in close-up shots look good
  • The camera's low-light shots and indoor shots look noisy and washed out

Battery

  • Good battery life - lasts the whole day when used as a primary phone

More

  • The matte finish, the rounded edges and light form-factor (138g) also make the M3s quite handy
  • Doesn’t have hardware or capacitive keys for navigation, forcing you to rely on just the home button by means of swipes and presses - this can take some time getting used to if you are more coming from a more standard Android phone
  • The phone is good on the whole, but the Redmi 3S Prime has an edge over it, with a more powerful processor, bigger battery, and newer Android
