Value for Money

I got this mobile for mom and below is my opinion about flipkart and the mobile.


1) Got this through EMI for three months since they promised no extra charges
2) Delivered within 36 hours of ordering
3) Safe packing with cardboard & bubble wrap
4) Extra print out that had list of all samsung service centers near my location (Neat job guys)


1) The best mobile I could find in the the 5-6K range
2) The touch screen is good
3) Wi-fi is also working fine.
4) Camera is good for 6k mobile.
5) All features as expected

Please note that u won't get iPhone like experience in this mobile. But definitely I could guarantee that this is the best mobile available in this price range. Good for an entry level Smartphone though many apps aren't supported.

I also considered
1)Micromax A70
2)LG optimus One
3)HTC wildfire

Great Phone for the price

Got the phone within 4 days(There were two public holidays in between).. Packing was great..

About the phone:
*You get 4GB card free which is great
*A nice mobile pouch is bundled inside from Samsung
*Charger, Data Cable, Headphones are all there
So the package is more than you can ask for in this price range

Cell works great.. Need more time to write about its features and performance.. Initial impressions are all positive..

Good job flipkart..

Excellent phone for the price

I was initially apprehensive about the Bada OS. However after buying this phone, i have been happy. It is a great steal at this price indeed, as someone just said before.

If you are thinking of buying it, simply go for it.

You may not have as many apps as there are for Android market, but you do get standard apps and many games from Samsung Apps. Personally i like apps, but not too many of them.

Battery backup can last up to a day, with moderate to heavy usage.

Camera is fine. Though flash is lacking, but still its pretty decent.

Messaging is pretty easy, and the keyboard is good even in potrait mode.

Wifi and Bluetooth (v3) make it excellent.

One thing that i wanted was 3g, which isnt there.

one of a kind

I bought this phone for my mom a month ago. and i loved it! its amazing!its simple!java works fine!tough is quite decent!got a nice camera on it!the perfect size!works for me!!!!!!

but then there are some defects---> no android [:(] no 3G [:(] headphones that come along with it aint that good.has a light lag while switchin frm portrait to landscape nd vice-versa.and a few more....

but the positives clearly outweigh the negetives! if ur lookin fr a good cheap capacitive touch screened phone,u should defeniately go for this one! i bet u wont regret it.

Dont recommend to buy

I bought this phone about a week back from flipkart. Delivery was excellent. With this phone noticed a few issues -

1. The GPS is only useful with the default google maps widget, and that itself is rickety. There is too much error in your location, and also GPS does not connect many a times. I bought a ZTE blade with android also recently, and it works much better.

2. The camera clicks well only in day and for things which are close. So not that great.

3. Apps are very limited for bada.

4. Email client works only half the time. No clue as to what might be the issue. My net in 4 mbps broadband. The client just fails to fetch the emails.

5. I want the predictive typing as default, but did not find the option.

6. The defaults widget and synchronization with facebook accounts etc is rickety.

7. The PC application - KIEs does not have the facility to manage SMS.

8. The default widgets are very rickety.

9. Google latitude does not work on this phone.

Some good things

1. Sound is good. speaker is good.
2. Display is good.

My suggestion is to spend probably 1.5 more and buy samsung Y. Or spend 1.5k less and go for cheaper nokia X2.

a fabulous phone for this price !

its a great phone !! well it doesnt have 3G , but i dont think thats going to be common very soon , and its data packs are so costly ... what else ??

wifi bluetooth 3.0 ... all working good

its looks (better than corby,monte,optimus,galazy pop) are the first thing that caught my eye (looks like an iphone) , i went to the store to buy monte from samsung , instead bought this ! (thank God )
good screen (using 3.2 inches is just a great feeling for those who switched from traditional set to touchscreen for first time)
nice resolution and 16M colors makes it pleasant for eyes ...

very good camera , no flash , but thats okay , if its day , or night indoors with good light , it will take amazingly great pictures (im a first-timer) and the resolution , u can just keep on zooming in :)

Best touch phone in 6K range

I was using Palm Centro for past several years and wanted a inexpensive replacement. My requirement was that new phone should contain every feature of my Palm WiFi. I researched several phones and zeroed on this one. Went and checked it out in a nearby store and decided to order from FlipKart. So here's my review on the buying and the phone:

1. Absolutely fantastic service. Phone was shipped from Bangalore to Pune in 24 hours flat! I am sure this is record.
2. Very well packed.
3. The support staff and delivery person were courteous.

1. I swapped my SIM and my old memory card, inserted and battery and the phone was ready to go.
2. Very intuitive, I didn't have to read the manual to make a call, send an email and a SMS. Setting it all up was very easy.
3. WiFi worked absolutely fine.
4. Camera is surprisingly good and photos are clear even in sunlight.
5. I haven't yet downloaded any Apps yet (unlikely to do so).
6. Threaded view of SMS looks great.
7. Basic navigation is pretty easy.

Problems I faced:
1. The glossy screen gets smudged easily. I guess I am obsessed with smudging because I wear spectacles and like clean glass :)
2. The contacts can be grouped only if they are copied to the phone.
3. Some of my old videos on the memory card could not be played because of unsupported resolution.

Overall, this is a very good phone to buy and I am happy with it so far.

PS: I personally don't care if it's Bada OS or Andriod or Palm. It has to get a job done. And this one does.

I ordered it on saturday afternoon, and it reached by monday afternoon!!

This phone is best for those who are serious, i.e. are not interested in playing games on phone. If you don't want want to play games, just go for it.

This phone has awesome security features, call/sms blocking, etc.And don't look at its picture on this site, this phone has a robust fine quality plastic body. Count on me, you'll not be embarrassed to carry it in public.

Touch is quite near to iPhone feel believe me i do have that too. Capacitive touch, awesome TouchWiz user interface and highly user friendly features make it the best deal.

Plus phone was only a month old from manufacturing date. It also has uber Collins dictionary. Camera and music player has mind blowing optimisation features.

Again, if u are not gamer, just go for it. Recommended even for rich guys looking for serious phone.

Lastly, this phone was so good that i advise you also order a screen guard.

Best service from Flipcart....& obviously the best first impression & Review after 2 years 5 months

To be frank, I know that people don't expect and like to read about flipcart service in product review (Most of them have already experienced it earlier - like me) - at least I don't like it personally, but still.....I was really amazed as I booked order for my Wave on Monday night, 26th Sept at 10.32pm and I got my phone delivered on Wednesday afternoon, 28th Sept at 3.00pm (at Lonavala). so I got my phone delivered to my home in 40.5 Hours - superb service.

Now regarding the first impression of the phone -
It's 'capacitive' touch screen works with even a 'feather touch'. I may feel like this because earlier I have used 'Samsung champ' with 'resistive' touch screen. I think this explains the difference between the two very well.

It's sound quality is good, but it sounds superb with the 'Champ's' in-ear headphones - first negative thing - headphones.

I think this is enough for now, more detailed review will follow after enough 'playing' with the phone.
Review after 2 years 5 months

Excellent ..... as per specs, nothing to mention in today's parameters, No-Android, and all bare minimum. Worked without much problems, GPS takes much time to load many times - I reach to the location before GPS goes On sometimes ;), Headphone started giving problem One ear gone deaf (of the headphone) few months back otherwise working fine. Thinking to upgrade for Head Phone issue, lack of android & lack of real estate (screen size)...... or May be these are just excuses. Having only one problem before upgrade - this phone is working fine and If I upgrade what should I do with this phone? (as no exchange offers are there on flipcart)
