    Mixed Bag

    Thanks to Flipkart's for giving a chance to re post my reviews as I made some wrong assessments before using it fully.

    I bought this phone few days back from a retail store as my primary calling phone.


    Phone look wise its good, big display, big fonts with Kies support to backup contents

    Call quality is good.

    Most importantly the build quality: superb, back panel is SS, so no issues with scaling of paint finish due to scratches and mishandling etc.


    Mainly signal levels are ...

    I have bought this phone 2 weeks ago, its has lots of disadvantages over advantages.
    Pros: 1. Large screen and bright display
    2. Dual SIM active at the same time

    1. Music Player does support Back-Ground Music Play, So you can't do any work with listening Music.
    2. No separate Wallpaper for two different SIM, so you may confused which one is primary, because icon is not very clear.
    3. Each time of switch SIMs, you have to press buttons at least
    3 times to switch network, be...

    Nice one to buy for GSM _ CDMA HANDSET.

    Overall its a awesome set to buy but in my opinion its a bit highly priced. But looks wise its classy and sober. Battery backup is dissent. Camera quality is also very good.
    Battery lasts a day and half. Sound quality is simple with basic features. Display is also quite good.
    A Good Buy For anyone.

    GOOD CDMA-GSM mobile

    since no other branded CDMA-GSM dual phone is avaiable in market so i purchased it.... and it is not only good phone but in fact it is very good...

    Please do not expect the kind of features which are available in single GSM phone in 6000 budget, its main advantages- dual with CDMA and GSM.

    the only problem with this phone is- no background music.
