For the price, this phone gives all the regular features. There is not really a bunch of new features but the user won’t be get disappointed either by purchasing this phone at this cost.

The User Interface is pretty clean and very near to stock Android. There are some attractive features such as the lock screen that give multiple button choice for users. The back camera is pretty nice and captures some very perceptive images if the user has a stable hand. The HDR has also seemed good. The overall performance will look okay for those users who are not too requiring. Multi-tab browsing, Multi-tasking, and regular gaming will not obtain any issues. The battery life looks to be well and will give 12hours lasting with regular use.


The display doesn’t seem too bright and makes a struggle for users when they are capturing the images in outdoors, even with maximum brightness. The graphics compatibility of the headset are restricted and the user won’t able to play top end games with enjoyment and seamlessly. The camera is pretty good but it works very slow. The images are harsh in the low-light.

As concluded from the above positives and negatives, if users are searching for a budget phone, then this suggests as a good option for them in the market. There is some tough competition in the market including the Redmi 2 Prime and Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus. Still, some people might be attracted by the new feature Iris Scanner and different looks of this headset.
