  • The phone's low 1GB of RAM will adversely affect performance when running a lot of apps, and the phone runs an older version of Android
  • Issues with some key apps on MIUI, Limited 4G LTE bands, Not fully tailored to nonAsian markets, Recharge time is a bit too slow, Screen refresh rate is low
  • Doesn't come across as a massive upgrade over its predecessor, Feels a tad plasticky
