Question – How is the performance ? How much did it score on Antutu and Nenamarks?
Answer – Antutu score on our review unit is 20727 and 64.3 fps on Nenamarks 2. The chipset has present in most 2014 smartphones and we have experienced it in several devices as of now. Performance in long run wont be a problem for basic and moderate users. High end games also ran without any major lag, but the handset isn’t meant for aggressive gaming.
Answer – Software is Android 5.0 Lollipop based custom UI. First home screen lists big icons for quick access to basic phone operations. there is no app drawer and Icons in the dock are huge. You will get all Lollipop benefits, but design of the interface isn’t very attractive. There are several pre-installed apps, but the good thing is you can uninstall all of them. 10 regional languages and gesture support is also present.
