its a good phone but..
By rohit nair | 15 Jan 2019 | 15 Jan 2019
got update to android 9 and emui 9, but the camera is poor.camera always give you overdecorated photos only and its terrible in low lighting. i personally feel like its a gaming phone,so concentrate on gaming only, rest is just average.and ya the display glass and camera cover is easily scratchable, sound quality from this is average eventhough am using a jbl earphone. pros: amazing good fast charging. good gaming experience no lags or slowdown anywhere. lots of customization no heating issues jus lil. slippery on hand very premium feel on hand.
