    With the increased usage of smartphones nowadays, a long lasting 3500mAh battery can be a good way to keep going without worrying about battery. Let’s see how this looks in real life usage! Hope it will be good. At this price this is good deal!

    Not bad. Thanks for the article

  • Robin Ghai

    Does it have VoLTE enabled?

  • Ankita Jain

    Had some great expectations! But at this price, can’t complain. Not entirely impressed though.

  • THAT BANNED GUY

    Processor is bad, not good flashing ROM. Lenovo could put a SD616 in that range.

  • Vishal Giri

    at least u never run out of battery on it…

  • Only E3 Power! What about the E3?
    ₹7k for one day! At ₹7K it’s the best out there, though processor could have been bit better!! Does it have gorilla glass protection?
