I think most of the complaints on this site are either out of immaturity or impatience. This is a great phone for the price and I would definitely recommend it.
The Good
  • * Octa core processor and 3 GB ram at this price is definitely a plus point.
  • * Audio output is best when Dolby Atmos is activated.
  • * Camera is good for most situations, though you need to wait a wee bit for it to get the focus right at the point you want.
The Bad
  • * There is no option to add a number to block list
  • * There are no earphones included in this package.

Got 3GB ram version on big billion day sale at Rs. 6749/- At this price this is an excellent phone. I was confused between Redmi 3s & this but I'm fully satisfied with my choice.
The Good
  • *Build Quality: Phone is well built with killer looks. Comes with back cover and screen protector. Certainly It does not looks like a budget phone.
  • *Display: Display is the simply best part of this phone. Stunning!!!!
  • *Camera: Back camera is excellent much better than Redmi 3s. Good auto-focus. Front camera is too good.
The Bad
  • *Battery: It has got 2750 mah battery which last about 10 hours with moderate use. Decrease screen brightness to prolong battery life.
  • *Runs on 5.1.1. Likely to get marshmallow update but not Nougat.

This phone offers a wide range of features that one can least expect at this price range. It's sleek metallic body gives it an impressive look. In addition to that, the Dolby Atmos feature gives an overwhelming listening experience with this model. I was mainly concerned about the low battery power of the device but it works out fairly good to be able to last for at least a day under normal usage.
The Good
  • Awesome music experience.
  • The VR Headset is also a great additional feature pertaining to this device.
  • The camera quality is also decent.
  • The phone is light weight and their is no heating problem too.
The Bad
  • The battery of the device dies very soon in times of excessive usage.
  • Low memory space of the device also limits access to several applications at a time.
  • The silvery surface makes the scratches look even clearer.

My main reason to go for this phone was - Good Front/Rear camera, 5" screen, dual simcard and great value for money! Add to this the features of a good RAM, low weight and 2750 mAH battery made this a really great buy. While using the phone I found the following problems - 1. The body is metal finish andthus very slippery. I have to use it with a cover 2. The camera is strictly OK for a 16 MP tag. Apart from this the phone has performed brilliantly. The limited storage of 16 GB could be a pain point for heavy users but extra storage of upto 64 GB works perfectly fine in the phone. Screen resolution, internet capabilities or 4G/LTE features are also upto the mark. All in all, I would recommend this phone for people looking for a value for money purchase.
The Good
  • Affordable price
  • Loaded with right features
  • 5" screen making it easy to operate with one hand
The Bad
  • Slipper metalic body
  • Mediocre camera and related software
