Design and Display
No denying that this is a good looking smartphone one that has a rather wide notch above its display. However, the charm here is silver finish which gives it a nice polished look combined with the little bezels around the display. The absence of chunky bezels lends a hand to how premium looking the smartphone is. Furthermore, there is the adoption of the iPhone XS dual camera style that contributes to the gold look in a look-alike manner and also a fingerprint scanner right where it should be at the back panel.
There is about the usual display serving content to your eyes covering just most of the front space. With respect to screen size, there is a bit of a large screen sized up at 6.2-inch. There is a pixel density of 268 pixels owing to the 1500 x 720 pixels resolution and a colourful screen with up to 16 million colours on display.
Battery and Camera
The capacity here is concerned with adequacy other than having a surplus of battery juice in the smartphone. That means, your smartphone will get to last a day on regular usage but nothing more than that. Also, current is being supplied to the 3, 200mAh battery through a MicroUSB port which should take about two hours to charge the phone.
The camera system here is cut from the same coat as the rest of the other budget smartphones. Ignoring the dual camera charade at the back, and focusing on the low-grade 13MP primary camera and 2MP depth sensors used.m which is still very much sufficient for occasional shots but nothing pristine here. You’ve got about the same quality of 8MP camera up in the notch
