A 90Hz IPS LCD screen, a primary 50MP camera, 25W fast charging, a huge battery at 5000mAh, and the midrange Snapdragon 680 chipset. This makes it quite a competitively priced midrange. It ticks pretty much every box, and then some. This phone is certainly a midrange powerhouse.

It has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and supports HD10 which makes it an absolute delight to consume media with. It has a plastic frame, a plastic back and a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 front panel.
