    in this price 16500 3G VERSION is selling in market

  • BadarUI

    is it dual sim?

  • Expensive with low specifications

  • tazzix

    Unless LTE is the issue, the Ufone Smart U5a has exceeded my expectations at 6,999/- the specs are much better than this Zong phone apart from LTE of course but then its about 10,000 cheaper.

  • Z8 by qmobile is best. no doubt we have to spend 3k more but in return it’ll give us plenty of exciting features especially a 2GB ram and HD display

  • Badar Khan

    Lenovo k80 better then all smart phones
