Is this a good mobile phone to buy?

It depends on what you are expecting from your phone and what you want to use on your phone. Overall, it is a good device if the price is less than 23k.
Answer by sidj200, 6 months ago
Yes, but only if we get it under Rs.15,000. Otherwise, it's a waste of money just like other Redmi, Xiaomi phones.

Super mobile and I am waiting for this phone. I've used Asus ZenFone Max for 3-years with no problem. ZenFone 5 has a super camera and battery, and I'm waiting for it.

This phone is good.
