Hi! It was about 25 days ago I had purchased this yes!

Since it was my first online purchase so I had hesitated towards product seal, freshness & its genuineness but all this things became my pleasure as soon as I open the package.

Excellent phone by an Indian Company

Bought this phone for my sister.
An excellent mobile phone with 'ALL' the features.

Once you enter your gmail address while setting up your android account, there's no looking back.

The wifi and gps work like a charm. The battery is good which lasts easily for 1 and a half day with data connection on.

Video calling is excellent, I tried it with my galaxy tab 7 plus and there were no issues.

The full QWERTY key pad is an added advantage. The 3.5 inch touch screen is Good. Pls don't...

To Save Battery

1. Stop all unnecessary service like google play, facebook etc which are default in the system. These use internet data and also huge amount of batter. Try to make the phone as simple as possible by closing most of the application, open them when you need.

2. Reduce the screen brightness.

2. Supports 32GB SDCard.
3. Dual Sim function is good.

Worst Mobile : Waste of money

I bought this and just used for 10 days and it has started showing his true value. To open phone book or messages it is taking 10 to 15 min' Some time im not even able to lift phone because of slowness.

You can Install Skype but You Can't login

Just Purchasing from Flipkart, But Shame on Micromax they don't support Skype on this Mobile. You can Install Skype but You Can't login with your User-name/Password.

As my Opinion Skype is Best Option for Voice/Video Chat, I RATE this phone as ZERO... BUT There is No option for ZERO rating.
