Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 processor with1.7 GHz clock speed gives satisfactory performance but doing heavy task for longer time causes heating problem in handset while the heating can be reduced to some extent by MiUi update.
IPS LCD capacitive has protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (scratch-resistant), and display resolution is 1080 x 1920p (Full HD) with 441 ppi display density that makes it sharp and vibrant even the sunlight visibility it is so clear with great Colour reproduction and 178° wide viewing angle.
The camera gives best result in outdoor scenery/ in sufficient lightning conditioning while saturation of camera is a bit higher than normal but picture comes out with 13 MP camera gives good clarity and great details. The low light photographs are not going to impress you. Same case for front facing 5 MP camera.
The 3120 mAh battery is doing good job for battery backup of about 24 hours for heavy user but heating in some heavy task cannot be ignored.
