  1. gogi ji,
    how would you rate Tenor e 3GB/ 32 GB model with OTG at a new / reduced rate of Rs 6999/-

  2. it packs everything i was looking for… except for plastic build… i wish it had a metal body…

  3. Instead of 20 mp front camera they should have focused more on rear camera quality, so it could have a good market sale.

  4. Does this phone has heating problem? My current mobile yuphoria becomes hot even while taking calls and my ear starts hurting because of that. Will I face the same problem in this handset if I purchase it?

  5. Seems like its having the best camera under 9 k segment, I thought of buying it but a want a bigger screen like redmi note 5, eagerly waiting for Feb 14 launch.

  6. several youtubers have got the review units and uploaded Unboxing and reviews on you tube…. Everything seems good and up to the mark.in this phone. Camera also seems decent . Now this is the best handset @9k price and I m gonna buy it at first sale….

    1. Yes but I don’t believe their reviews, some don’t even deserve to get units on the first place, some are those who said Tenor D is Redmi Killer. The problem with those specific YouTubers is that they create a hype unnecessarily, anything that comes close to Xiaomi is a Xiaomi Killer for them, they get excited. Better wait for Gogis review – remember what happened with Tenor D check it if you have not.

        1. i think then you should check pixel camera too as that has beaten all the dual camera, one thing more the 2nd camera is only used for portrait mode to create depth effect in many budget oriented smartphone

  7. Hi gogi sir, by any chance u will review this phone pls. Seems very good specs with reasonable price.

    1. I did not get it today and I don’t have time after 12th if I get it before 12th then will do it may be will buy when it goes on sale on 12 if I do not get.

    1. Plastic build, with metallic finishing. Better wait and see what Xiaomi is launching on 14th.

      1. Redmi 5 and redmi 5 plus. But let’s see the pricing. Now after seeing this one I don’t think redmi 5 will be much attractive unless and until they price it very aggressively.

  8. Please do un boxing and review please I am user of Infinix note 4 it’s good mobile. Now this one looks good.

    1. I’m also using infinix note 4. Everything is great in it except the sound quality from the earphones. I have redmi note 4 too which has a wow sound (9/10). Even the JioPhone sounds better than infinix note 4’s sound. Would you like to confirm if my piece has some problem in this section?

      1. Bro if you want good sound in infinix go to music player and in the setting there is equalizer adjust that and see the difference

    1. No doubt Honor 9 lite, it is feature packed. Infinix is nothing in front of it, its just having HD+ screen.

    2. I think this is better than 9 lite, bigger battery, dual sim with sd card, 20 mp camera, only draw back.. Its only hd plus.

    1. Maybe had been to the event, did not get the review unit. Lets see, if I get okay otherwise may buy not sure yet, there are lot of other launches so first come first preference may skip brands that did not send on time.
