The performance offered by the handset happens to through the roof since it comes with a powerful Octa-core processor that has been clocked at 2.2 GHz. Further, the processor has been coupled with 3 GB of RAM that ensures a liquid fluid multitasking and performance. Moreover, the handset comes powered by a 3150 mAh battery that can easily last a full day on a single charge on mixed usage.
