Beauty & the beast combined.
09 Sep 2015 By Soumya Guha Roy On flipkart.com

I have been using the device since last 3 days. Here is my review nnPros: n 1. Excellent display n 2. Fast focus and fast capture cameran 3. Nice UIn 4. Decent battery backup (after 24 hours, battery remains ~30% with mediumn usage.n 5. Good performance.n 6. Unread notification count is spot on, like we have in iOS.n 7. The metallic design is superb, and feels premium. Go for the gold one, than then white. The white one looks plastic from back side.n 8. Fingerprint sensor works 100% perfect.nnCons:n 1. second SIM slot is a hybrid slot. You can't use a microSD and 2nd SIM at once.n 2. In 32 grands, you may expect 3Gigs of RAM, where it features 2GB.n 3. Yes it warms up a bit during charging, and during gameplay, but very minimal.nnAltogether its a perfect combination of beauty and beast.nnI am giving 4 stars. one star deducted for a day late delivery by flipkart, even when next-day-guaranteed delivery was opted for.
