I tried Asphalt 8 that got installed on external storage. Game play was smooth in highest visual quality mode. Check video review at the end. Handset can shoot and play 1080p videos.

Camera
P6000 is packed with a 13MP auto focus camera on the rear and a 2MP on the front. Rear camera is with LED flash support and can shoot FHD videos. You can check the sample images and videos shot using this handset at the end of this review.

At times the camera is not able to focus properly, the still images are not that sharp, they are a little blurry. Video quality however is pretty good.

Others
No other issues found. Gmail app was missing, but you can download it from Google Play. OTA updates are supported, watch out for Android 5.0. 4G will not work in India. 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth worked well. Sound is loud and clear.

Battery
There is 2700 mAh Li-po removable battery. You can expect battery backup of about 3 to 5 hours with moderate to heavy usage.

Verdict
Not a bad option for $160 (approx Rs. 9,800 – shipping / customs extra). It is 64 bit quad core powered handset with good overall performance and running KitKat (will get Lollipop update). Camera could have been better. Battery backup is average.
