Final verdict :
The body is covered by plastic shell and the weight might seem less but it makes it feel cheap on hands. When you use the phone only for the purpose it is listed for i.e live feature, it does the job well there. It has 5MP front shooter with flash which is decent enough. And that paired with the preloaded with the app which can do beautification live is pretty good. But the processor used , the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 which is an old processor and the 2GB RAM struggles when multi-tasked.
This device can be considered as a secondary device for those who’d like to have a secondary device. If your main purpose is to go livestream and use the phone for someother general purpose, then this device will be totally fine.
Considering the price i.e. Rs.9999, there are many other good smartphones with better processors available in this price segment.
