Design and Looks : The phone is huge with 6 inch screen and will not fit in your jeans pocket easily. Only buy this if it is ok with you to handle such size. Phone looks slim. There is a notification led in front.
Display : IPS tft Display has good viewing angles, brightness and color production. Its definitely better then closest rival Grand 2. Its very hard to spot the pixels (245 ppi). Overall the display looks nice. Display as well as the back of the phone is a finger print magnet, back is glossy. Touch is smooth.
Storage : Out of 8 gb internal memory, 4.8 gb is available to the user to install apps. Out of the 1 gb ram only 865 mb ram is available. After installing some basic apps like MX Player, Whatsapp etc free ram available is nearly 300 mb, which looks less if you are in to heavy multitasking.
Performance : The interface of the phone is lag free. There is no lag anywhere in the phone. It is smooth and fast. This applies to navigating through apps and checking photos in gallery. Everything is instant and lag free.
Sound : The audio quality is good. But it is not loud. Overall its speaker is of average loudness.
