  • Solid build

  • The 8MP front-facing camera is good for selfies and video chats - colors are vibrant and the images are sharp as well

Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Tends to heat up a bit, when put under stress
  • No fast charging support (which is present in some of its competitors)
  • The camera's video recording quality is not as good
  • Hybrid dual SIM slot lets you either use dual SIMS or a memory card, but not both together
  • No special support for quick charging unlike some of its competitors
  • Low-light camera performance of the phone is strictly average - with plenty of noise in the shots
