Design and Display

To be candid, it is nice seeing this level of aesthetics on a low budget smartphone. It is made of a blend of aluminium and plastic all of which result in a smartphone with an elegant look.

Also, there is a noticeable reduction in bezels on board with the screen which makes it more intriguing. Situated at the back, is some kind of iPhone X camera arrangement but with just a single camera the other thing being a flash.
