Below today's expectations ! :(

i think that the phone is gud for the price but if u r a tech-addict like me,then its a definite no from my side..the main reason-DISGUSTING BADA OS ..
i have used it for an year and a half and i am not satisfied with the lack of apps and games..

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 not

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, an

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..

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.

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

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

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 ey

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 f

Thank you flipkart for your timely delivery. I buy something or the other from flipkart every month. You guys are doing an excellent job. Keep it up. And this time it was Samsung wave mobile. Music player, battery back up, speaker, bada OS etc are very good. Wi fi is Okay. Touch screen is excellent. The mobile lives up to the bill !

Dont go for it-YOU WILL REGRET

I purchased this phone around 2 yrs back and its a waste of money. No apps at all. NO whats app, the games are very bad trust me Galaxy Y is a much better phone. The only thing this phone is good at is playing music. Thats it.
Dont buy this phone, you will enjoy using it for 3-4 months, later you will feel like throwing it into the dustbin but you cant coz you already wasted money.
