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

  • Sturdy build quality
  • Quick fingerprint sensor
  • Somewhat bulky design

Display

  • Bright display, with good viewing angles

Software

  • Simple, close-to-stock Android UI

Performance

  • Average speed/performance - the phone will tend to lag while multi-tasking - and apps will take time to load - there are better performing phones in this price bracket

Camera

  • Good front camera - delivers excellent results in daylight as well as indoor with good lighting - images have sharp detail and natural colour
  • The front camera is good in daylight but pretty ordinary in low light - there is visible noise and lack of detail
  • Rear camera is average - there is significant shutter lag plus image quality is not up to the mark — mainly with the amount of detail it can capture - video recording quality is also average

Audio

  • Loud speaker output

Battery

  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the work day without any issue

More

  • Only 16GB internal storage - will tend to get limiting if you install a lot of apps
  • On the whole, the Era 3X is decent value, but it's not great - it lacks the good looks and superior performance of the Xiaomi Redmi 5A or the 10.or E - and if you can stretch your budget a bit then Xiaomi's selfie-centric Redmi Y1 is a much better option too
