What We Liked

  • Great display quality
  • Good camera assembly
  • Competitive pricing


  • It would have been a different device with Android Lollipop
  • Design isn’t that inspiring


A lot many alternatives exists in this segment but drilling down to few top models, it will compete with Lenovo A7000, Alcatel Flash Plus and Meizu M1 Note locally.
