Design and Build

As per the design, it seems to be one of the best designed smartphones comparing it with other similar hardware specs phones, it has rounded back cover with a texture design which gives a nice grip and looks like metal however it is not, but still good quality of plastic has been used. The chrome on the bezel of the phone makes it solid and also give it a good premium look. In terms of weight it feels really light at just 121 grams and it feels quite handy as well when you hold the same in your hand because of curved back with great feel of a premium phone.

Camera and Internal Storage

The camera on the device is 13 MP at rear, its has auto focus supported with LED flash for low light and we did took some shots in low light, they were good has nice levels of colors saturation although the details were not that good in some of the photos, you can get an idea about this once you watch the hands on video embedded above. The in built storage of the device is 16Gb and you get around 12 Gb available to the user and there is no memory card slot to expand the storage on this device.

OS User Interface and Battery

The UI is not stock android but its custom but it does not feel slow or laggy while opening apps and switching across home screens etc. The battery on the device is 2000 mAh which is non removable should be good enough for making this device last one day as we could see some power saving options in the settings.
