Great Value for Money With awesome looks
By Zorina Shineintherain | 11 Jan 2019 | 11 Jan 2019
My 1st recommended phone in this price point, especially 3gb variant which have decent primary camera and more importantly great selfie camera which produces great photos with b Sony flagship camera at just Rs 11,999. Sound quality is really good even in very loud sound. The trendy dewdrop notch and poly-carbonate glass-like finish with 13 layers coating which reflects light in different ways makes it premium and eye catchy. Overall, for 3gb variant, best phone in 12k price and very good phone at 15k pri.ce point for the 4gb variant.
