Conclusion

Comparing to other flagship phones, the hardware of the device is disappointing but having the magnificent software it doesn't look like fault in the hardware which is the strong favor for the device. Having a single camera still, it’s far better than the dual and triple camera and detect the depth of the picture which is the plus point. The camera really impressive on the device with its multiple features like the camera can capture video in 4K format too. Overall the device is very good but the phone seems expensive with given features and traditional model which is not mass appeal, having decent look and overpriced for the device can’t compete with the flagship phone like OnePlus 6, OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 7, Oppo F9, Oppo F9 Pro. The phone can’t justify the price and doesn't attract me at all in the mentioned price.
