  1. No face lock, no finger prints support.
    The lacks are compensated with huge battery bank at 5000mAh.
    Pretty basic and low budget phone.
    Good buy at that price.

    Xiaomi should probably slow down on phone launching as they are beginning to confuse users with many models with little or no innovative features.
