    Vignesh Velraj

    Best mobile at this mid range price.
    Only con is which i can’t get a perfect screen protector for this mobile bcz of its 2.5d curved display. So im using it without a screen protector.
    Other than this there is no flaws frm my point of view.
    So if u r planning to buy this mobile.
    I would say, “Jus go for it”.
