Fast chargin feature

Brand gives you 33 watts of charger and the device has a 5020 mAh battery which gives you super fast performance while using this device. The Snapdragon 732G gaming processor works very fast with super backup. Best phone under 25k After using it, the mobile feels very slim and comfortable in my hand and has a display with full HD+ resolution. Superb battery backup, good charging speed (9/10), and all applications run very smoothly at the same time.
