  • A complete failure from Huawei.
    Gaurav Francis (Jun 29, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    The phone is a complete disappointment, lags while using basic applications as well. UI is not refined and no updates. My Moto G4 Plus with 3 GB RAM was far better in performance when compared with it's 4 GB RAM.

  • Absolutely Amazing!
    Dolang Tagung (Jan 24, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    It's been only a week since I bought this phone and considering its price tag (which was around 12k) I was completely blown away by just how good it is. It's compact, stylish and at the same time comes with some great specifications altogether. Its the device which I always desired since the nexus 5. Full paisa vasool!

  • Worst mobile at high range
    Tejesh Kumar (Jun 12, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    No dual 4g support but they selling as dual 4g support. video calling not working. (FEATURE Available in dailer) COMPANY service asking to third party tools for video calling. No frequent updates. Lot of bugs. System hangs sometimes. Hicare team even dont what inside the phone and ui. But good mobile if it cost 6k 6000 thousand rupees. If u purchase for 18k ur wasting your money.
