Simply the best
By nirmal k mohan | 18 Feb 2017 | 18 Feb 2017
Its a very good phone. Display is good even though it is 720p. Samsung is caliberated its display very well. Phone looks great in hand. Camera is decent in performance. It is provided with f1.9 aperture which gives you better pictures. Battery , surprisingly gives me a 2 days backup on moderate use. Phone doesn't heat up always. Somebody says 2GB RAM is not sufficient for an Android device. But after playing games like Modern Compact, Alphat8 I didn't feel any lag in its performance. They are provided a good charger so it takes me only 2.15 hours to take full charge a 3300mAh battery. Some time it may feel little warm while device is charging whichis common for a device. You may get mobile phones with same specifications paying less money, but I may say you won't regret buying this device.

A Great Product...worth the value...!!!
By Akshay Bhai | 7 Sep 2016 | 7 Sep 2016
Amazing phone with quiet good specs. Camera quality is very good, outdoor pictures are awesome on this. Battery lasts for the whole day with regular usage. Heavy apps runs quiet smooth, though it lags on very heavy apps. Multitasking is flawless and the Display is the best outcome of this product. I bought it at a discount, you can too if you want...i will provide the link, just copy and paste the below URL in your broswer...
