Excellent phone with feature-Battery back up might let you down.

Bought this phone just two days back. Overall a good phone for CDMA Lovers.
Pros: Excellent features with 3G, Wifi.
Cons: Battery back up not upto mark.
Screen colours are very light which gives you a dull look while using it.
Also its a bit heavy which can strain your fingers while holding it, if using for long intervals.

There is no better option available in this price range for CDMA.
Samsung Primo duos do not have features matching with price tag of Rs 6000.

Cheapest smartphone for CDMA

There are very few choices available for CDMA. If you want a feature phone look for others.
But if you want a smart phone with touch screen, there are only 3 smartphones for CDMA,thats it, end of story, no choice. If your budget is less than 10K, there is only Samsung Galaxy Y CDMA.
Samsung Galaxy ace duos is at 12k and HTC desire VC is at 15k.
So there is a huge huge gap in this category that should have been filled, but apparently, CDMA technology is not a priority for Mobile phone manufa...

worth to buy :-)

this is really god one. If you have android then you almost have 70% satisfaction already. I got this cell phone yesterday. It is so handy and cute, what i say. Cant rate battery backup right now because i am using it with wi-fi only. Better internet connectivity gives better battery performance also. Graphics is ok. But as with its price it worth to buy. Cell phone has 2 GB with it and with the offer with flipcart you will get extra 8 GB card.
I am using Tata network with this CDMA mobile.

2. KIES - cannot detect this phone
