What We Liked

  • Good Rear and Front facing camera
  • Bigger display
  • Dual SIM Support


  • A bit high on price than local OEM
  • Supports only 3G
  • Android 4.4 Kitkat, no Lollipop update


It will primarily go up against with mid-range phones like Samsung Galaxy Grand Max, Motorola Moto X 2nd generation and Sony Xperia C4 and Xperia M4 Aqua.
