  2. Brandon Fortune says:

    My first flagship phone in history and boy am i so proud of being one of the owners of this marvellous phone

    • Knowledge says:

      Did you say “flagship?”

      • BrandonFortune says:

        For my budget yeah its a flagship. Tell me a better brand new $150 phone on the market. Its no secret that basically its a low mid range phone but for $150, its value for money especially given those specs

      • Lytton Mawunga says:

      • Tinashe Nguruve says:

    • Jo says:

      Hakuna Flagship yakadaro usanyepere vanhu iwe. It’s a good phone and affordable yes but FLAGSHIP NO. Most midrange phones from other brands are way better than this

  3. nobert munyaradzi guyo says:

    l go for gtel

    • Maxwell Moyo says:

      I support u but lack of an ultra wide lense makes me sick

  4. Maxwell Moyo says:

    It’s a good looking phone but 3GB of ram feels a little. Plus there is no ultra-wide camera, connot shoot 4k video, no Ip rating of water and dust resistance. Built quality doesn’t feel premium. However 5000mAh battery along with a 12nm processor makes the phone a bit ahead!!

  5. Kuda Chiwanza says:

    Im sorry. Do I only get it from a Gtel shop with that price or somewhere else. I’m interested

  6. Tsungayi Chikakatire says:
