The phone is pretty impressive if hardware is to be compared, I’m not sure about its success outside Asia but it seems like phone will be successful in developing countries like Nepal & India. It’s build quality and warranty is yet to be announced.
There are no review of the device yet, but by evaluating hardware configuration, we assume the performance of the phone to be good and since it has Nvidia Tegra 3 with 12 GPU it may be smooth for 3D game as well.
