Useless Phone

Useless Phone. Do not buy it. I Purchased 2 phone. Both are not working now. One mobile is not getting charged and other is having touch screen problem. It is purely your luck. If you are lucky, phone will work otherwise it will not work as with me.

This is a nice phone in the little budget and has got all the features a phone should have. Camera is fine (Don't expect too much) and front camera is only good for video calling. The 650Mhz processor bundled with a 200Mhz GPU will allow nice multitasking on the device. Voice is louder than the other Android Phones (Below 10000) but you have to compromise on quality a bit. The touch screen is very responsive and the 5-way navigation key makes navigation even better. This is of coarse not a phone to play hi…

Dont buy rebranded chinese phones from indian companies

1) These phones do not have standard batteries. Every mobile model from India companies has a different kind of battery type. It hard to find aftermarket replacement batteries even from their service centers. Nokia for example uses identical batteries across different models (BL-5C is used in 65 mobile models).
2) If in case the device has some fault. Firstly, they will try to put blame on you by claiming that damage is due to moisture, or due to the reason the mobile fell on floor etc etc.
3) Even if they admit their warranty defect, you will have to follow up for weeks/months to get …

Best mobile if you aren't a multimedia buff

I got this mobile a couple of days back... At this point of time all I could say is that if you are looking for budget Android mobile which is good in mobility and web related features, you must grab it. in case of multimedia its good only for casual gaming and casual video viewing... you won't get a powerhouse in it.

- Super cheap price considering the specs
- Good audio
- No sluggishness, nice responsive screen
- has all features like secondary camera, capacitive screen etc

- Poor camera
- low screen resolution and low colors on screen ma…

Low Battery!!

I agree with all reviews. Its good and cheap for Android at a price of 5300. However,
It needs too much charging all the time. Has hardly any back up - seems useless. I recommend buying Samsung galaxy putting in another 1000 Rs.

Phone is JUNK if no SKYPE/ GTALK / YAHOO Video calling

If there is no video calling, better to buy a popular brand like Motorola or Samsung for a few thousand extra bucks. if something goes wrong, customer support will be better there.

Better customer service is doubtful. If something goes wrong, you gotta live with it!!!
