  1. Gogi sir can you please throw some light while differentiating this set to Infocus M810. Both these sets from same manufacturer cost same too,which one would be a better option??

    1. 810 will be better due sd 801 processor which will be able to run 4k videos also, which this one does not.

  2. Gogi ji

  3. From where this hybrid sim slot concept come if you don’t want to give dual sim then give single sim only and also microsd card is important both cannot replace each other

    1. Agree with you !. This hybrid slot concept has ruined many smartphones (for me) which otherwise have good hardware configuration.

      It simply defeats the whole purpose of 2 SIM slots.

      One more mistake many manufactures make is to NOT provide 4G / LTE on the second SIM slot.

      Don’t know when these manufactures wake up from their self induced COMA !

  4. This hand set suffers from flaws..some fatal..lIke only a 2600 mAh battery to drive 5.5 in FHD screen..a no no..should have been min 3500 or 4000 mAh…and then average cam..and hybrid twin slots..making this only a single Sim phone.because every one in his right senses uses a Micro SD card.and to boot battery os non removable..after docking all negatives this hardly deserves 4 stars..Mr Rana.

    1. My reviews are general reviews, that does not consider (add negative or positive points) for features like removable battery / non-removable battery, Hybrid slot etc. These are for the users to decide.

  5. still coolpad note 3 in better than this one at 8999. even Redmi note prime is launching on tomorrow on MI site at 8499 – MADE IN INDIA

  6. Gogi,

    Please suggest If this has a better Camera or Huawei Honor 4X / Lava X10, want to buy a mobile in this price range with the best camera and a slim Handset, have zeroed down on this but after your review am just confused again, if you can suggest a handset which has the best camera in this price range, looks and build quality will be the next priority.

  7. Everything is fine except hybrid sim slot…..???
    Why all companies are today stuck on hybrid sim slot rather than a separate dual sim slot…?????

  8. Looks pretty nice but hybrid sim is not preferred… the price could be little less would make it good buy

  9. hi gogi it has any glass protection and any author audio feature like hifi or dolby. such type….?

  10. Gogibhai
