  1. Nice article though. But I wanted to read anything about Nokia. No problem. This is the best section of Android Hits.

    • Q6 is a nice device if you want to settle down with a midrange device with great build quality. If you have a good budget, try any other models. 🙂

  2. Zenfone AR is a great device. But I guess the pricing is too high. Who gonna buy 50K Phone in India? They should lower the price. I think they will reduce the price after few months or weeks. Let’s wait for that.
