One would be quiet satisfied with the actual performance and overall functioning of the device. The camera runs smooth. Alongside de-merits of everything exists. Coming to the price, the price of smartphone would resist people to some extent from buying it. Although the phone promises cool features but still it would be a tough competition in the market.
Battery stats is good but comparing to other android devices available at even low price it would be a tough go. Also the brand name has not got enough fame. It is somehow hidden in the market. So it would make people think a bit.
