2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Aesthetic unibody metal design
  • Light-weight
  • Feels compact to hold and results in easy handling, especially for people with small hands
  • Does not come with a fingerprint sensor which is a bit of a letdown at this price

Display

  • Decent display - though resolution could have been better

Software

  • Funtouch UI looks attractive, and offers a lot of useful customization/gesture options

Performance

  • Decent performance - performs well with multi-tasking, and does reasonably well with games too (though is definitely not as fast as the other top performers in this price range, like the Redmi Note 4)

Camera

  • Decent rear camera - images turn out to be crisp, clear and bring out good color - daylight and macro shots came out nice - the flash is also good and is not very over bearing - low light images come out grainy though
  • The front camera is decent for selfies especially if there is good lighting
  • Decent video recording performance too

Audio

  • The audio experience using earphones is decent
  • The speaker output is loud and clear
  • Good call quality

Battery

  • Pretty good battery life, with special low power consumption and super power-saving modes (though again not as good as the best performers in this price bracket, like the Redmi Note 4)
