*Gaming - Some android games not

supported like (racing moto3D, NFS,,,,,,i

downloaded and won't even open) but

as you know there are hundreds other

games so its not a big issue. Not a good

choice for gamers. sometimes it became unresponsive when you had some apps running

If you want to experience Android before you go for high end android phone must go for this! Its the best in its own capacity and price range.

Now the phone::
Amazing display.. often seen only with phones over 15-18k.
GPS works amazingly well. Good preloaded aps. Not a very good inbuilt video player but that was easily fixed by downloading and installing Mobo Video Player Pro. All formats can now be played. Installing Winamp is also advised.
Internal memory is a bit low, only 150MB approx but thats not very different with most Samsung and other brand phones. Same is the case with battery life which I am given to understand is a problem with all Android phones.
Camera is not bad.. no flash sucks but what all do you want for under...

Overall a delightful phone for 7,900. A definite buy for someone moving newly to Android / Smartphones.

Good Phone But could be better

I have bought this phone recently. But I got less than I expected this phone has many cons but biggest is its 265K colours and lack of a Graphic Processing Unit (GPU). I tried to play Angry birds on this phone but I was disatisfied.

Now, I given this phone to my dad. I have a Chinese phone.

So, I am planning to buy a LG Optimus Net Dual P698. this phone is much much better then this so, listen me look at that phone also

I am now repenting for buying this phone and will c...
