Ultrabudget Phablet with Dual Cameras

Dual Camera phones has recently been trending, but most of which are Low End Android. This is the Elephone C1 Max, another Dual Camera Ultra Budget Smartphone that frankly offers a large 6.0 inch Display. It will not offer you blistering performance as well as top notch camera quality, but it is good for casual use. The Mediatek Chipset underneath is good for casual use, also the dual Camera feature with 13 MP RGB and 5.0 MP Monochrome, similar profile to other profiles of the Xiaomi Mi5s Plus. It is quite different from the Xiaomi Redmi Pro, as this not only features Bokeh effect but also improvement of quality via Dual ISP. Probably, my only gripe would be the frugal battery size, especially for a 6.0 inch Smartphone.
