The phone comes with a 5.5in LCD screen with a pixel density of 401ppi. It also comes with a built in 1.8Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 650, which is Hexa-Core and 3GB Ram. This makes it fast and reliable and made it one of the best phones for its price. However, this phone is letdown by its poor battery life. The camera is below average and phones like Moto G4+/X+ or Oneplus X offer much better cameras at a competitive price. I also faced major microphone issues, and from enquiring with other friends with MI phones, it is common to have a dysfunctional microphone on an MI device. It also heats up a lot while charging. The Hexa-Core processor, though fast, needs more stability. All in all, an above average phone.
The Good
  • Fast fingerprint scanner at a low price
  • Good display
  • Easy to use interface
  • Fast and reliable
  • Expandable memory available
  • Sleek and robust design
  • Sim slot for Nano as well as Micro sim
  • 5.5in display which is both convenient to carry and large enough
  • Comes with useful preinstalled apps like WPS office
The Bad
  • Poor battery life
  • Average main camera, below average front camera
  • Heats up when charged
  • Issues with microphone (Case with more than one phone)
  • Unwanted Bloatware pre installed
  • Combo slot for SIM and memory card
