The phone can play full HD videos quite easily. The best thing is the battery. The audio playback time seems good. It is perfect in all ways. And the design is accomplished in the best way you get at this price in Amazon.
The 13MP camera is the best camera. It captures details perfectly. The camera feels more worthy during the outdoor shooting. The videos taken were also nice. The front camera does take impressive selfies. The beauty mode enhances the face beauty. The bokeh effect is okay but not that best.
Overall this is one impressive camera. Selfie videos are astounding. The LED flash on the rear cameras makes it easy to establish right light for photography. Here you will find some sample shots taken with the rear camera.
Initially, I tried playing games like Frontline Commando which didn’t even launch. It played mid-range games like Xtreme car Driving and Subway Surfers which played pretty well. The phone can only handle mid-range games and the graphics in these games are rendered well. There is no heating issue.
