The 5.5 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has Full HD display (1080p) resolutions with 401 ppi display density makes it sharp, vivid and crystal clear. Display offers good sharpness which makes its good sunlight visibility. The touch offers good responsive time and wide viewing angles.
Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10 Octa-core processor with 2 GB RAM gives the Smartphone a smooth interface, phone runs smooth till you don’t make it filled with lots of heavy applications. This handset comes up with MIUI 6 based on Lollipop 5.0.2 and will get MIUI 7 Soon.
13 MP camera takes quite good pictures with fast auto focus in sufficient light but when it comes to low light conditions the camera is struggling to take clear pictures. But when we captures photos from front camera its obviously not disappointing at all.
3060 mAh battery as on papers seems huge but its performance is not up to our expectations but it can deliver at least one full day battery backup.
