With the premium finish and the Mediatek Octa-core processor with 2GB RAM this phone comes at a price of INR 19,999/-.
But is it really worthy to have this phone at this price???

Forget about the price but if you will look at the hardware specifications then the Xiaomi Mi3 gives you a really better option with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 @ 2.3GHz, 3050 mAh Li-ion battery and all other hardware specs almost similar and having a limitation of un-expandable 16GB static internal memory.

Even the Micromax Canvas Knight also comes with the same chipset but @ 1.7GHz speed and 16.7MP camera, 8MP front facing camera at a price of INR 18,053/-.

Finally you can have a more in-depth look in the market to get the best suited device, after all the choice is completely yours.
