The overall smartphone is a great deal but it is a bit over-priced. Under this range, one can easily get a smartphone with better specifications. The camera is like the Out of the Box thing which truly impressed me by its amazing performance and the OS is also well optimized. AI is doing its job efficiently without any complaints. Look and design is also unique and the punch hole camera is also quite small. It gives a stunning experience while watching movies and videos. Bezels are also less, eliminating the notch and chin. If you want a better camera phone with regular usage, Go for it. You won’t regret!
