DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE

I have bought this phone 2 weeks ago, its has lots of disadvantages over advantages.
Pros: 1. Large screen and bright display
2. Dual SIM active at the same time

Cons:
1. Music Player does support Back-Ground Music Play, So you can't do any work with listening Music.
2. No separate Wallpaper for two different SIM, so you may confused which one is primary, because icon is not very clear.
3. Each time of switch SIMs, you have to press buttons at least
3 times to switch network, because each time you have to save the primary network, which is very embarrassing.
4. You can't switch networks at the time of call in progress, so to send sms from other sim , you have to disconnect the call first.
5. Instead of 1200 mAh battery , backup is no good.
6. Network catching capacity is also poor.
7. Internet in CDMA network only.
8. When call is in progress in one SIM , you can receive call in other sim , but can't switch.
9. Size and weight will also cause problem.
10. Not very good looking practically.

Mixed Bag

Thanks to Flipkart's for giving a chance to re post my reviews as I made some wrong assessments before using it fully.

I bought this phone few days back from a retail store as my primary calling phone.

Pros:

Phone look wise its good, big display, big fonts with Kies support to backup contents

Call quality is good.

Most importantly the build quality: superb, back panel is SS, so no issues with scaling of paint finish due to scratches and mishandling etc.

Cons:

Mainly signal levels are variing always like any other CDMA phone but on this phone gets no signal at times which was not happening in my previous cheap vendor supplied phone.

Its too heavy for a simple phone, its not sleek but not bulky either.

Its very slippery, there's no much grip on sides. I dropped the phone within an hour from the purchase. Thanks to the plastic coating on the sides which I forgot to remove, nothing happened even a scratch.

Back cover is not SS like its sibling GSM+GSM, its plastic and easily get scratched over a period of time. Mine's got a scratch within 4 days time.

Loud speaker performance is average but RING TONE sound level is TOO LOW to get noticed in a crowd.

No dedicated single key press function for speaker phone, u need to key in twice to get activated.

There's no screen timeout period preset.

Cam quality is disappointing.

Conclusion: If you are looking for an average CDMA+GSM branded phone, you may have to satisfy with this as nowadays CDMA+GSM dont have much choice in reputed brands."
