I also played mortal combat game without any issues. The overall gaming experience is good. The sound from the earphones seem good. Fast battery charger comes within the box which is again a good news. The battery provides enough charge for a day on normal usage and on the heavy usage ¾ day.
The rear camera is a 13MP shooter and the front-facing camera is supposed to be a 5Mp shooter. The outdoor shots from the rear camera came out to be very good detail. And the pictures are also not oversaturated.
You can also get some decent depth of feel. For the indoor shots, you have to be careful. Otherwise, it comes out to be blurry. But the device does a far better job when compared to other budget-oriented smartphones.
This is one kind of budget smartphone bearing all the premium features like fingerprint sensor, octa core processor 13MP camera. The performance is good but not the best you will get. You will be satisfied if you buy this product but don’t expect any amazing kind of feel. The device is available at a price range of Rs 9000.
