Reacjes high but falls short

This cell is selling like a hot item on every shopping site on in India. Have used it for two weeks and here is what I liked and what i didnt,

-Triple SIM- huge boon for people who roam or have different sim cards for different purposes for example one sim for cheap local calling/one for cheap STD/one for other use.
-Nice shape-loved the back metal finish, though it picks scratches if not kept well.
-Sound packs a punch- loud and clear
-One button network switch-awesome feature never seen on any cell before
-Decent torch
-3.5mm audio jack
-micro usb charging point which is really a boon.

-Light but not sturdy
-Cant display images above 1mb
-Poor user interface - needs lots of polishing
-GPRS poor and super slow
-outdated features, needs a revamp
-need to add each music track individually to create a playlist its such a pain

Conclusion- Marvel idea with pitfalls, Proud to own this cell, versatile 3SIM which is only branded 3 sim cell in India, rest chinese. Decent sound and easy sim switch make it worthy of having as a second phone, first being a high end model (in my case Xperia J for my 3G,camera and multimedia needs)

I recommend this but buy only for 3 SIM cards, worth the money.

Best tripple sim mobile in india

My brother is using this mobile from last two years. I am the one who gifted it to him. He wanted a mobile with best battery and best call logs as he will be keep on making business calls. He is into travels, real estate and other businesses that demands more calls. He just asked that he wanted tripple sim with best battery and with best call logs. I found this one as best though i couldn't judge it is awesome at that time.

Now my brother tells me that he will use it till it die completely as he may not get this kind of phone in future.

He had everything that he wanted in this mobile. call recording, mp3 songs support, FM and torch, bluetooth. best battery(comes for 3 days for him). what else? All things that are must.

For a normal user, I am sure it can give battery upto 5 days..

No negatives found with the expectations we had. We never wanted it to be used for internet purpose. For that we use other devices anyway. For call making and call tracking, contacts storing and all other minimum needs it is "awesome phone".

I never write review. I am so happy with this mobile. I would have used 10 mobiles till now from basic to top end phones. But this one impressed me a lot with its performance with the expectations we had.

If you want tripple sim phone for making calls mostly, you don't have any mobile that can beat this mobile.

3.1500mAh battery lasts atleast one week!

There are actually no cons at all,but still if you ask i would mention it.

Security key not available

+ Good phone for the price.
+ Triple SIM feature is superb, can switch between the SIMs at the touch of a button (on the side)
+ 1.3 MP camera pics are good quality

- Fonts on the display are not all that great
- SMS display (no. of lines) is less, difficult to read/type long messages
- SMS not available in conversation mode
- Worst feature - no screen lock password available, so anyone can unlock

I booked this product from I love this phone . I think its the only 1 phone available with 3 simcard on standby mode can deliver battery back-up for 4-5 days. I feel its importance few days back when Orissa was hurted by Phailin & no electric supply for 3 days but I was able to be in touch with my well wishers becoz of this phone. Great Phone with clear voice. Only demerit is it doesn't have call active feature .
