  • Slightly higher price, but decent specs!

    After seeing the Acer launching the thinnest notebook which is under 1cm at IFA 2016, I’m quite amused to see how bland this phone looks like. You have got some great engineers who can design a great products but you end up with something that’s not so good.
    Apart from design the device’s specs are decent and price is on the higher side.
