Design wise, the device looks pretty decent with a slim profile with uniform thickness and it made of magnesium alloy and feels pretty good in hands. The material finishing looks decent as well. It has a unibody design with non removable back panels. The power button along with dual SIM trays are located on the right side while the volume keys on the right side. The top houses the 3.5mm audio jack and the bottom has the micro USB charging slot. The rear panel has a matte finish with 13MP camera, LED flash, Phicomm logo and also the speaker location at the bottom. But the overall build is just average.
The front panel has 5 inch Full HD display, front camera and three capacitive buttons which are not backlit.
The device sports a 5 inch Full HD display (1920X 1080p) and the display is pretty sharp and has good colors. The viewing angles are also pretty decent. The touch response from the display is good and is smooth. The phone comes with support for dual SIM cards and 4G LTE support in India. There is 16GB internal storage, out of which 10.9GB is user available, but you can expand the storage via microSD card at the cost of second SIM card.
The phone runs on Snapdragon 615 Quad core chipset with 2GB RAM and the performance looks pretty good in the first use. We will have details on performance when we review the phone.
