  2. The phone provides a high-end photo experience.
  3. The gaming experience of the phone will be quite bold and can play high-end games at ease.
  4. Battery life is most suited for the phone and battery drain slower than expected.

  1. The phone has common issues of Bloatware.
  2. It has slightly lower performance in the CPU department.
  3. Low charging speed compares to the competition.

The overall performance of the phone is subtle, but it delivers very late in Indian terrain, which is one of the most conspicuous flaws.
