Seeing the body and build quality, the phone can be guessed. Will be low cost. This phone with black color and plastic body is quite small as of today. It weighs only 112 grams. The quality of the plastic used in it is also average, but with a matte finish it does not look 'very cheap' either. The back has textures, which make it easy to hold the phone. In the box the user gets a power adapter, data cable and also a headphone. By offering headphones at this price, the company has tried to please the user. The design of the phone could have been further improved, plus the micro USB connector does not fit properly in the phone's port. Such drawbacks should have been overcome.

The phone has a 4-inch display, which is equipped with 480×800 pixel resolution. This makes the text appear blurred. Viewing angles are also not that good. Turning the phone right-left makes the screen look black. The display and the tempered glass are not connected to each other, the difference of which is clearly visible. Along with this, fingerprints also come due to this. The edges of the phone are thick, the navigation button is not backlit. The phone does not have a notification LED or ambient light sensor but a front camera has been given. The volume and power buttons are on the right side of the phone. At the same time, the headphone socket and micro-USB are present in the upper part of the phone.

It supports 8 Indian languages ​​and provides some services without internet connection. Haiya is able to get it done. </p>

<p> In this, you will be able to chat with existing friends on the User Hike with the existing Hike Messenger app. It also works like a common SMS app before sending the message. It checks the existing user's hike. It then switches to the chat interface. However, our pod It did not work in the system, we sent a regular SMS. If you want to take this service, you have to download the Google Messenger app. </p>
<p> Hike Messenger also works offline. With this you can send text messages and stickers without internet connection. If you have to send a picture or a large file, you have to buy data packs. Data packs for hike total phones are different and are very discounted but only for Airtel user The same is valid. There is a plan of 1 rupee for 20 MB, which runs for 1 day. For 1 GB of data you will have to spend 49 rupees. Its validity is for 28 days. However, nothing has been clarified as to how long these data pack prices will remain valid.

Among them is Dura Speed, with the help of which the app keeps running in the background. Also the SOS button can be configured with this.  </p>
<h2> Camera and Battery </h2>
<p> Generally Android phones equipped with 1GB RAM do not perform as well. The same problem exists with Android Nougat. 80 percent of RAM is used, you have 174 MB left. Due to this, Android gets stuck and the app also takes time to open. Forget the better performance of 3D games. The interface of the phone ran fast at some places, but later the same slowness was seen. </p>
<p> The fingers stagger on the keyboard at times due to poor touch response. Keys response is also slow. However, we did not have any problem with 4G VoLTE support in the phone. Also, the call quality on the earphones was also better. The phone is capable of delivering 1080 pixels of video, but the viewing angle and poor contrast of the small screen makes the work worse. The speaker is also not fast. The alert feature is fine. The headphones are decent, it would be dishonest to expect better than this. </p>
