Bought this 2 days ago from flipkart only. The phone is good in terms of features. There are some facts that I want to share.
The touch response is satisfactory. Lags sometimes due to small screen. Spacing between characters in portrait qwerty keyboard layout is very less. So it's prone to mistype errors.
Though it has internal 4GB memory, 2GB is system reserved. only 2GB is available for the users. But it is more than enough for this phone.
It has 459MB of RAM. Approx 317MB is reserved for system. Rest is for application u will run on it. But it is sufficient for this device.
Processor speed is just OK for this phone as u wont multitask on this small screen.
There is no proximity sensor an GPS. The screen wont turn off during calls. Instead, double tap to unlock feature is there to protect the touch screen from accidental touches when you are in call.
Battery backup is quite good. It lasts for about 40 hours with moderate calls and 2G data usage while using a single SIM. Your battery will drain 30% faster if u use 2 SIMs.
Overall it's a good phone in this price range. If u want more, then pay more.
The only CON I found is - the Processor and RAM capability... The phone lags while using the FACEBOOK application also. That is what I didn't expect.
But overall a good buy as the cheapest Android available with a quality brand tag.
NOTE: I saw lots of reviews saying Whatsapp is not available officially from Play Store. But i downloaded Whatsapp from play store only. So, YES, WHATSAPP IS AVAILABLE OFFICIALLY FROM PLAY STORE. If you dont find it there, you probably need to update the phone to it's latest firmware.
One more thing... Vodafone is offering 500MB data (250mb/month) free of cost for this Device. Just insert your vodafone sim and wait for it. It will be activated automatically.
