I bought this phone few days back. Though I am not much of a Samsung fan of mid range mobiles, but this mobile really deserves compliments. It is really a good buy at Rs 13990.

Have used this phone for 4 days and here are my observations


1. Excellent Battery Life: After charging it to 100%, it came to 21% after 48 hours !!! During the entire time my WiFi was on and screen brightness was set around 25%. Watched more than 2 hours of videos as well. The battery typically drops 10% after 1 hours of continuous screen time which is excellent. Charging from 21% to 100% took around 1.5 hours.

2. No hanging: With 2GB of RAM, it is sufficient. Zero lags till now. Have installed 37 apps including games like NFS No Limits, Asphalt Nitro,Enemy Strike 2 and didn't notice any lag.

3. Perfect Screen Size: With 5.2 inch screen, it is the perfect size. One hand operation is easy.

4.Good Looks: I bought the black one and it really looks good, trust me.

5. 16 GB internal memory is enough for apps. I installed a 64 GB sd card. No problems till now.

6. EXCELLENT sound quality with excellent bass through supplied headphones as well as other headphones.

7. Extremely soft touch experience.

8. Although the screen is not full HD, it doesn't matter. Full HD videos play flawlessly. I installed VLC player.

9. No heating has taken place in my mobile either during charging or playing games.

10. Decent photos. Main advantage is the front flash. Captures decent images.


1. The sound through speakers in extremely low.
2. No Gorilla Glass

Overall, its a very good mobile. Better buy this mobile than the other chinese mobiles.

  1. Marshmallow v6.0
  2. Front flash with 5mP camera
  3. Its design
  4. Primary Camera is not so good with 13mb led flash
  5. Battery life is also not so good
  6. Its size is correct in its design
  7. Supports OTG
  8. Only 2GB RAM
  9. 16GB Internal storage but only 11GB is availiable
  10. 4G supports
  11. Ultra power saving mode
  12. S bike mode
  13.  Speaker volume is not so good
  14. 3G supports
  15. Ultra data saving
  16.  2G supports
  17.  Top performance
so after all this conclusion and usage of this phone i thing that at this budget it"s a good phone ,if you are a normal user you can go for it but if you love a lot of games and multitasking i think you should probably look for any other smartphone.
