The phone is very well built it looks like a 10k phone and the performance is too good. I played Modern Combat 4, Asphalt 7, Dead Trigger ,etc on thi phone all ran very smooth. It's antutu score is 10536. Quadrant score is 3360. Nenamark FPS is 42.9. The device is ideal for gaming purposes and multitasking. Only Thing i felt bad was the battery backup and the screen viewing angles. You CANNOT view anything if you tilt the phone a little but the battery can be adjusted and can be used to 6 - 7 hours.nEdit :- After running Quadrant again i got a score of 3654.
