Pros and Cons
Talking about the pros of the handset, this new phone offers many mind-boggling features at affordable rates. The phone is good for intensive games and mildly graphics. However, the official figures of this phone are not very impressive. As if, the device is used for an hour for gaming with W-Fi connectivity, it uses 15 % battery. If the user watches You Tube videos, then in 40 minutes the phone will utilize 20% of battery. In addition, it is crucial to use a task manager to clear the memories otherwise the phone will hang for sure.
