Awesome Phone

On a personal note this phone is the best in the price range as compare to other phones. Everything in this phone is fine no issues with the phone. Screen of the phone is best with hd recording and playing some of the hd games. Camera is also good. Huge screen enough to see from far. Sound is clear and loud. Regarding the headphones they are average.

Good hardware specifications

This phone is very awesome deal at this price.
#This phone have 800mhz processor which is quite good, adreno 205 gpu is also powerful.
#Official Gingerbread update available, ICS based custom ROM also available
# screen resolution is pretty good
# battery backup and low speaker volume are letdown.
