The price of Rs. 10,999 seems good enough for a dual core handset with a 5.3 inch screen, however there are few options available for this price tag with somewhat same feature. Even some better options are available to choose from, for example the Zen Mobile 701HD which will be coming with a quad core processor for just for Rs. 11,999, Rs 1,000 more than Byond Phablet PI.
