Writer’s ViewPoint

A device powered by Snapdragon 670 SoC, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, dual rear camera and in-display sensor (of course) priced at Rs 34990, make sense? definitely not, especially when we have better options like OnePlus 6, ASUS Zenfone 5Z and even POCO F1 offers a better value for the money. But if you want the in-display sensor (for a shot) on your smartphone, you’re free to go ahead and buy this smartphone.
