I bought this phone for about 14K in 2015. Was one of the best budget smartphones then. Excellent build quality, decent front and rear cameras, Gorilla Glass protection, IPX7 water resistance, good sound and display. Problems: Quick overheating, lag, hangs at times, storage issues (since mine is a 16 GB varient), cannot keep too many apps. Verdict: If you want a phone in this price range, check out the new Moto G5+.
The Good
  • Water resistant
  • One of the first few phones to receive the new software updates
  • Gorilla Glass protection
  • Moto support
  • Good camera quality
The Bad
  • Overheating
  • Battery issues
  • Storage issues
  • Sound quality hampered over time
  • Lagging and freezing

I had bought this product at 11,700 on Flipkart. It is one of the best phones in its price range. What makes it unique is it's Gorilla glass and being water proof. For normal usage it's good but if you use it heavily like opening many tabs/applications at once the phone gets heated quickly and has lagging problem. At first the batter life was good but now after almost a year it has decreased. No Android 7 update for the phone yet which makes it less competitive in market .
The Good
  • Pros:
  • *Good camera in daylight
  • *Gorilla glass & Water proof
  • *4G for 1st sim
  • *Stylish body
  • *Feels comfortable in hand
  • *Smart gestures
  • *No hybrid sim card (can use 2 Sims and memory card at once)
  • *Bright flashlight
  • (** Since I havebuyed i have not yet visited service centre !! One of the best smartphone )
The Bad
  • Cons :
  • *Battery life
  • *Heating problem
  • *Lags
  • *No Android 7 update for the phone yet
  • But still best in the market !!
