In terms of imaging, the smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera equipped with an LED flash for capturing images and recording videos, but the device misses out on phase detection or laser auto focus technology, which makes this device a tad slow to focus and capture images back to back. The image quality is good under normal conditions but isn't the best in its price range.The smartphone sports a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter with LED flash which is great for low-light situations. The LED flash is a unique feature that is found on very few devices.

NFC is merged in the back cover of the mobile; it is used for faster transfer of files with one touch. Moreover, it is mostly used for payment in shopping malls via net banking or any NFC Pay enabled App.
By Pawanson**
Mark Helpful (132)
An NFC chip operates as one part of a wireless link. Once it's activated by another chip, small amounts of data between the two devices can be transferred when held a few centimetres apart.
By Pclinks**
Mark Helpful (142)
It's very useful feature for today as well as for the future. You can share or connect with other devices by just tapping the phone to the other devices.

Can we use dual 4G SIM simultaneously?
You cannot do that. Both SIMs can be 4G, but only one SIM will work on 4G and the other will be switched to 2G at a time. Dual SIM management is a mess on this phone.
By Malli**
Mark Helpful (131)
No, you cant use two 4G SIMs simultaneously. But you can switch to other by turning off one SIM or by making it in 3G mode.
By Pawanson**

It supports 4G sims in both sim slots. But only one sim slot work as 4G at one time. Other as 2G.
By Sachin.t**

By Maruthesh**
Mark Helpful (85)
No, when you enble 4G at once, other sim will be 2G only.
