Very Bad Phone from SamsungMaine ye phone 5 month pahle liya tha. jab se liya hai tab se ro raha hun ki yeh kya kabada le liya. chahe to micromax ka phone le lena par ye phone mat lena. iska key pad bahut hi bekar hai. software bar bar gayab ho jata hai. after sale service bilkul bekar hai. samsung ke engineer isko theek nahi kar pate hain. computer se connectivity to hoti hi nahi. duniya ka sabse bekar phone hai.
