  • Phone is not so great compared to Redmi 5
    Riju Aetta (Jul 19, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I bought this phone on 18th July 2018, this phone has great battery life, display is awesome but some features are missing in this phone compared to Redmi 5. Light sensor, compass, infrared (used for remote control app), app notifications light, non metallic body are missing in this phone. Only benefit is dedicated memory card slot. This phone is over priced
