A metal body predicts to some extents that the smartphone is going to heat a bit. But as the thickness of the phone is not yet estimated, heating value can not be predicted. Moreover, the screen is having a beast size of 5.9 inches which is approximately a 6 inch tablet screen. Speakers on the top front and dual speakers on the bottom makes it a super sonic sound device.

Non Removable Batter and non-water proof body is worth a mention in this 50k bucks smartphone. It could be expected in this price range of course.

Camera

Parameters Value
mp 20mp | 8mp
(fps) 30fps

So far the camera is concerned, we rate it with 5 out of 5 stars due to its 4k video capture quality and 20 megapixel camera resolution.

Storage

Parameters Value

expandable Yes upto 256 GB
hybrid/card Card Slot

With 4GB RAM, you can play high end games and storage hell lots of data like images, videos, movies and blah blah blah. It is actually 64GB. The external memory card slot gives you opportunity to extend the storage upto 256 GB which is never less in any situation.

But the problem, you will have to buy a 256GB micro SD card for that. However, you can insert a memory card of any capacity.

Performance

If the smartphone would have been assembled with the Snapdragon 821 processor, it could be much better. However, the gaming experience is going to be amazing in the device as the clock speed is 1.8GHz.

When it comes to rate the display, there is nothing more to talk about. the pixel density, screen resolution and size everything is amazing. However, an amoled display could be much better in terms of battery saving and etc.

So far we have talked about the phone, it is going to be bang for your bucks. But if spending 50k INR for a smarphone, why not increase budget and go for Samsung Galaxy S7 edge?
