Got this as a quick replacement for the LG G4 which blacked out on me because of bootloop. LG wanted to charge 400 SGD for it when it's a hardware defect so I jumped onto this.
Cheapest 1080p phone sold here with a pretty snappy SoC, Snapdragon 650. Surprised to say it's a handy performer and I do like it much more than the G4 which heated up quickly and had a piss poor battery life. I do miss the amazing camera on the G4 but the perks on the cheap Xiaomi do sway it for me.
Pros: Good display with punchy colors but low color accuracy. (Has reading mode which I love and very low brightness for night use)
Long battery life. Much much longer than the G4 and slightly longer than my trusty Oneplus One.
Cheap enough that if it breaks, another one won't break the bank. Not pocket change but cheap enough off contract.
Cons: bad camera. Weird ui with no drawer, tinny but functionally loud speaker. No new android version with no new update scheduled.
Recommended for: People who need a temp replacement for broken phone, younger kids on their first phone, someone looking for a bargain and not a flagship.
Not for: power users, camera junkies
