Android 6.0 marshmallow

MIUI 8 features

Seeing a device running on Android marshmallow (6.0) in the era of Android nougat (7.0) is kind of disappointing. Company may push AN OTA update of android nougat in future however they may have launched the device with android nougat out of the box itself. It has been a year since Android nougat (7.0) has been introduced and many smartphone has already received their nougat update therefore therein case this device feels reasonably left behind.

 

Conclusion

No doubt this device comes with a awfully good set of specifications however there was some areas wherever company may have worked on. However there is not a lot of to complain concerning this device however within the finish it’ll be the value tag which can decide however worthy this device is. This device is not much totally different from Redmi Note 4 therefore I expect this device to be nearly as good as it is.
