I am surprised with all the negative comments on the phone. I have bought it on Feb 2016 and the only issue i have faced worth complaining is the CPU heating.
The camera is good along with a selfie flash for front camera as an extra treat!
The battery life is average when we consider the huge RAM available along with the apps that suck at the battery as hell!
User interface is good.
Easy workability is what I am most impressed by.
The phone packs some good looks too(I have the grey color version ) along with the corning gorilla glass 3 which lives up to its expectations as scratch and impact resistant. I will be frank with you all, I have dropped this phone at least 10 times by now but the phone works fine with no exterior damages as well.
And yes , there is a problem with the earphone accessory. It doesn't seems to work in both the plugs.
Other than the two issues the phone is amongst the best phones in the price range.
