Here is my feedback after 10 days of usage as the primary SIM.
This is a premium built handset and very easy to hold and operate, needless to say this is one device where battery performance exceeds all your expectations. For a heavy usage on VoLTE calls, games, browsing and you-tube videos, you will still have at least 20-30% remaining. The device is responsive and manages day to day operations with ease with virtually no lag. MIUI8 update notification comes as soon as the device is logged for the first time and the software update makes the whole experience a very stable one. Here are the (+) and (-) :
a) Superb battery life.
b) Excellent RAM management.
c) Enough tools to manage Apps and RAM during day to day usage.
d) Very responsive finger print scanner.
e) Beautiful sunlight legibility
f) Excellent call quality
g) No network issues or unstable network connectivity
h) Zero issues in playing mid-high CPU intensive games.
i)Very low pre-loaded apps or bloatware.
j) Very useful software functionality integrated with Android M like dual apps, privacy, cache cleaning, battery modes, app permissions, video quality and many more.
k) Music output is high quality and very enjoyable. I used with my Bose handset.
a) Camera is sub par or actually poor specially under medium and low lights. You will not be satisfied with picture quality for shots taken at night or under artificial lights though day light images are at par and at best acceptable. Color contrast is extreme and makes the image too vibrant with red color being over exposed. Skin color under artificial lights is rendered badly and is disappointing. Overall a below average camera. Camera has to be absolutely stable to get a good image else you need to delete.
b) The handset has very low ring tone volume and a low speaker making it difficult to get attention or voice.
c) With Reliance Jio fever in the country while VoLTE works absolutely well but a hybrid SIM slot is a major headache.
d) The handset ships with standard charger which takes 150 mins. to charge from 20%-full but with standard car chargers and third party chargers including the fast charges which comes with my Note-4 the speed of charging is extremely slow. Only works best with inbox charger.
e) Only black color looks elegant others definitely take this handset to the crowd.
My summary if camera is OK then definitely this is best even under 15K.
