    Most underrated phone. Awesome display and gaming experience. Although people are complaining about 3.5mm jack but in the box you get headphone of c type and also another extra jack for using any kind of headphone. Battery is really good. Graphics and gaming experience is also great. Value for budget gaming phone.
