A budget phone without the Sparkle

At around 5.5k, I, frankly did not expect a lot of mouth watering services from this little 3 inch device. But I was modestly surprised seeing the features that this little guy had to offer.
A 3 inch capacitative touch screen was well responsive.. The native apps (like Google, Facebook, Twitter etc) were good. An included 8 GB Micro SD Card even increased my expectability of this gadget.
Yet, few matters did not click with me.

Firstly, the shortcuts on the scree, specially the one on top( na...

Simply a budget Phone

A 3 inch capacitative touch screen is not so responsive..(sometimes irritating)
The apps (like Google, Facebook, Twitter, IM etc) are good.

Primary 3MP camera is satisfactorily good...

The loudspeaker of the phone is not that loud. Its pretty decent for a quiet environment, but while in a noisy surroundings, anybody can miss the ring. The only way to provide a remedy is to activate the 'Tone and Vibration' option.
the only drawback is while during Incoming call i'm unable to use the loud...

Basic touch phone

I have purchased it from flipkart, here is the review what I observed so far

1. Affordable price
2. Dual Sim
3. 3.5mm audio jack
4. Touch phone

1. Poor sound quality
2. Complex s/w options for loudspeaker & mute
3. S/w & clarity more r less like china mobiles
4. Not customizable , not even like samsung guru series
5. Settings are not found for may

Over all rating is a basic phone with more complexity, samsung guys should make it easier & customizable.
