Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Octa-core 720G processor, the performance is awesome and you can play heavy games like COD, ASPHALT with perfect smoothness and no lags or frame drops. You will get other smartphones in this price range which offer 730G SoC, but the 720G SoC beats 730G in performance and does not show throttling in CPU. An Tu Tu benchmark values make it clear that the latter is weaker than the Sd 720G SoC.

The front camera shooter consists of a single 32 MP, f/2.5, 24mm (wide) sensor. These are the on paper specs. The performance of the camera was not that great in outdoors. In portrait mode, the background was blown out and over exposed which made the image look weird. Switching to HDR mode on the camera, this issue can be solved to an extent.
