It will appeal to those who hates bulk because, while it may be a large device, it is quite incredibly slim, coming in at just 6.75 mm – saved for the somewhat annoying camera bulge on the rear. However, do not mistake this as a flagship competition to other makes out there. It is not because, Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 packing a 1.8 GHz octacore processor and 850 MHz Adreno 509 GPU clearly aren’t at the top of the chart of processing and graphics power.
