On the specifications front, the device comes with a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, quad-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera. The 4G LTE enabled device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

To use the EyeVerify feature, go to Settings and under Lock screen tab, tap on the Screen Lock to create an Eyeprint. It takes almost a minute to capture your Eyeprint.

The IPS display delivered good brightness and contrast levels and wide viewing angles. The 5.5-inch display provides plenty of real estate to watch movies and play games, etc. The touch response is also good. The Android Marshmallow operating system felt smooth and apps open up quickly.


The 8-megapixel camera is good for shooting in bright light conditions and offers modes like HDR, face beauty, Panorama. The 5-megapixel front camera is good for selfie lovers and clicks good pictures.
