      I was happy when I started reading the phone specs that something is available in near 12K with amazing Octa Core processor.

      As I read it further, my disappointment increased to see battery capacity -1200 mAh . That is not justifiable. The phone would have been a average buy if they would have increased the battery by double with a couple more thousand added to price tag.

      However currently it is a BIG NO from me.
