Not up to the mark.. Phone is getting heat for normal use & UI lag
By Prasad Durga | 4 May 2016
I bought It in the last week. I could see few problems major : Phone is getting heat like hell. even if you open light weight App like watsapp (or even if you open single app) its getting heat. Minor : There is a UI lag in the phone & My new phone is also getting stuck sometimes even if you don't open many apps. this phone is slipper, we need to have case cover for sure or else It slips very easily in the hand. +ve : Rich & stylish look.
