Final Verdict:

Although display resolution, RAM, fast charging, internal storage, CPU, and GPU seems to be great in this price tag but this phone lacks certain things. The battery should be at least 4000-5000 mAH because with 3140 mAH, it will last only 10-12 hours when it is in constant use. The memory card slot should be added because 128 GB is not sufficient for most of the users. This phone should have dual or triple-lens cameras and it uses the same lens and sensor as the past two generations of Google phones, and the numbers — 12.2 megapixels and f/1.7 aperture out of a single lens — surely aren’t very awe-inspiring in an era when flagship models are boasting triple-digit megapixel counts. These are the certain barriers that have some impacts on the popularity of this phone because many of the smartphones of other brands offer such features in this price range.
