When it comes to quality both the camera does a very good job, the pictures comes out with good amount details, accurate colors, sharpness in day lighting conditions, but, when you try to take pictures in low-lighting conditions, the pictures comes out to be bit noisy.

The Mali-T628 MP4 GPU does an excellent job; you can play games like Asphalt 8, NFS, Modern Combat 5, without any kind of laginess. Although the device gets warm after a certain amount of time, but it does not overheat, like most of the devices in this price segment.

7.Poor sound quality

Although, there are two speaker grills placed at the bottom of the device, but only one grill houses the speaker, and the sound produced by the speaker is very low. If you are out in a public place, then you will not be able to hear any sound coming out of the speaker, even at full volume.
