Karthikeyan rated:

Before buying this phone, i was too a bit hesitant to buy this. Spent nearly 1 month on checking and reviewing specs and reviews of the phone. And with out any further delays went ahead and bought this phone on march 25th 2013 from Univercell since in flippy it was completely out of stock for more than 3 days.

I'm gonna be completely honest on my review now. I'm also gonna split the reviews as well into different parts. So please bear with me for this long review. And do remember im a very choosy buyer of phones and i dont miss a single thing when it comes to buying.

BUILD : The build quality of the phone is pretty sturdy and well built. The back panel is
plastic and it dosent feel cheap at all.

Battery : Now i have read in many reviews that the battery is its biggest weak point. Frankly it dosent perform all that bad at all. I have used Wildfire S.. that had the most worst battery back up in my opinion and this is a smart phone and not a feature phone to provide u huge chunks of backup so considering the price range and the usage its pretty good. SO STOP COMPLAINING.

Heating : Heating is something pretty common in all the smartphone when the cores are stressed out. Now before buying this phone i have read plenty of reviews on this problem.
The main problem for heating is that the phone somehow is not using the second core ... so when all the stress is handled by one core, heating is more. Now there is a way to enable the second core. I used an app called "MTK6577_governor_switcher_v11". Now to check if this works i first played Real Racing 3 and i found the phone heating a bit. But it wasn't that hot. So i downloaded this app and switched the mode from Hybrid to OnDemand that way both the cores work. Now i tried playing Real Racing 3, heating significantly reduced a lot, but i would say it dosent heat up, only that its a lot better than the previous state.

Touch and screen quality : TFT screen and a capacitive touch works how it should. It is really smooth and responsive. Though the only problem is it is a bit hard to touch really small icons. Apart from that its really neat.

Games : All games run pretty smooth in this device. No lags or tear in screen just perfect. The only game that was too heavy was Real Racing 3, had to turn of the volume since it was lagging from the visuals and it was a bit choppy. But the gameplay was good no lags while racing. Overall it can run a lot of games that the other phones under 10k range and 15 k range cant.

Apps : So far all the apps that i have downloaded works flawlessly. So no problem in that as well

Light and sensors : Now the phone has a couple of good sensors that all really work good. The only problem is that the bottom three touch keys dont illuminate. So at dark it would be a bit difficult to find the home, back and options buttons. Other than that everything works fine.

Wifi and browsing : One word AWESOME. Now i have a 16MBps connection and the speeds are awesome though the only drawback is, say ur wifi is in one room and u just move to the next room which is close as well the signal reception drops down to 2 points :( but apart from the the data transfer is pretty fast. Browsing is also fast and no hiccups.
Overall if you have a fst connection then it shouldnt bother u at all .

Camera : Nothing to say since its a FFC and the quality is pretty bad. But it is compensated by the other features it can offer :)

Overall for Rs.6,490 this phone offers an awesome spec and features that the rest of the smartphones fail to offer in the 10 to 15k i would say even the 20k range phones. So if u want to buy an budget android phone dont hesitate to buy this :)

Hope this helps you guys :)

EDIT : So its been 5-6 days now ... and im gonna leave the feedback of the phone.

So still no problem ... Though noticed heating in phone near the camera, which is cause the charging port is near the camera and also while surfing the net or playing games try not to cover the back panel. That is one reason why heating is more ... and dont install unnecessary apps like themes and shit ... it just makes it worse. For battery backup use only JUICE DEFENDER and task killer if you want one use Advanced App killer it works good. And also if ur not using wifi switch it off to get maximum battery life. And while playing high end games like Real racing 3 and etc pls switch off wifi ...

Noted : Played Real Racing 3 for half n hour straight ... battery was in 69% after playing it came to 60% with no wifi .. so hence proved data transfer sucks battery too much ...

Thanks Rahul Chakravorty :) for appreciating my review :)

How to use the MTK governor switch :) just install and select the profile

L.A. Noire (Complete Edition) : Av Media
Price: Rs. 499
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
One of a kind
on 31 December 11
Karthikeyan rated:
certified buyer

Really when i heard motion capture was being used for this game i so wanted to have it. But, i didnt own a console. One day i was browsing through IGN and found out R* is releasing LA Noire for PC . I just jumped out of my chair. Wow, i was so excited and its one of the first orders in Flipkart to.

About the game: As i said its one of a kind and should be played by all the gamer's just to experience the dram of the 70's LA OMG R* are kings when it comes to create a sandbox game. The game features a wonderful story of crime solving by taking up cases in each desk (patrol, homicide, vice, arson). Each and every case unfolds upon how you find out the clues and the best part is you have to get it by judging and suspecting whether your victim or witness is telling the truth or not.

Must say great work by TEAM BONDI for their unique idea and story.

I rate it 9/10

Sleeping Dogs : Av Media
Price: Rs. 479
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Bang for the Buck Game

Action, Adventure, thriller, comedy when you combine all these things you would have a really good movie. But have you ever seen a game adapting to these genres. Well, you can find it Sleeping Dogs. Amazing game. Worth every penny. You are Wei Shen an undercover cop trying to unfold the mysteries of the Traids.

Set in Honk Kong the game thrives with colors flying all over the beautiful landmarks.

GTA as been taking over the Sandbox game genre for a very long time and still they continue to surprise us with their magic.
But when this trailer came out i thought this would be some dumb game .... cause im a die hard fan of GTA series and Rockstar. But when this game came out i tried it on the torrents and after 5 mins in game i quit it came to flippy and ordered the game ASAP.

I must a a true competitor for GTA but still a bit kiddish when compared to GTA cause GTA is real life sandbox game .... Sleeping dogs was more kinda of an action movie.

A good end to its predecessor

Constantinople- A buzzling market,once a history brought back to life to tell a epic tale to the last journey of EZIO.... man UBISOFT really took this series to the next level. Amazing graphics with beautiful sights and people making it so real.

Game play: The pretty usual controls and some tweaked slow mo take downs keep this action adventure game so lively and un boring

Take a look at the game play i just put up

Multiplayer: Multiplayer is overhauled a lot this time and its neat and works more beautiful than that of the last.

My Rating : 8.5/10

This game is FRIGGING AMAZING WORTH EACH AND EVERY PENNY. Im a huge GTA fan and i was hoping whether i would be getting the game on release date. And to my surprise, Flippy did a great job in delivering the game on time for the day 1 experience.

If one thing i really love about you flippy is your support, service and logistics :) Hats Off.

About GTA V.... Absolutely no words to describe this piece of technical art work(game). Just mind blowing.

BenQ GL2760H 27 inch LED Backlit LCD Monitor : Monitor
Price: Rs. 16200
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
Bang for the Buck!
on 25 October 14
Karthikeyan rated:

Perfect in every way. I previously had the BenQ V2410 eco model and was waiting to upgrade anytime soon. And guess what peeked by the window? Dang, this baby. A stunner in every way. The pictures are sharp and Big is better :)

Though i had some issues with Flipkart in delivering the product to me on time. Had to call up several times to check for the status of the product. Was let down for the very first time by flipkart. I do agree that it was Festival time and all but, in spite of the product reaching its destination it took 2 days to deliver it to my door steps. :(

Now the monitor is pretty huge and might take some time to digest its big size if, your upgrading from a smaller screen.

Overall i will rate it 5 cause im totally satisfied with the purchase :)
