    3) Safe packing with cardboard & bubble wrap
    4) Extra print out that had list of all samsung service centers near my location (Neat job guys)

    Mobile

    1) The best mobile I could find in the the 5-6K range
    2) The touch screen is good
    3) Wi-fi is also working fine.

    Excellent phone for the price

    I was initially apprehensive about the Bada OS. However after buying this phone, i have been happy. It is a great steal at this price indeed, as someone just said before.

    If you are thinking of buying it, simply go for it.

    You may not have as many apps as there are for Android market, but you do get standard apps and many games from Samsung Apps. Personally i like apps, but not too many of them.

    Battery backup can last up to a day, with moderate to heavy usage.

    Camera is fine. Though fla...

    Great Phone for the price

    Got the phone within 4 days(There were two public holidays in between).. Packing was great..

    About the phone:
    *You get 4GB card free which is great
    *A nice mobile pouch is bundled inside from Samsung
    *Charger, Data Cable, Headphones are all there
    So the package is more than you can ask for in this price range

    Cell works great.. Need more time to write about its features and performance.. Initial impressions are all positive..

    Good job flipkart..

    Best touch phone in 6K range

    I was using Palm Centro for past several years and wanted a inexpensive replacement. My requirement was that new phone should contain every feature of my Palm WiFi. I researched several phones and zeroed on this one. Went and checked it out in a nearby store and decided to order from FlipKart. So here's my review on the buying and the phone:

    FlipKart:
    1. Absolutely fantastic service. Phone was shipped from Bangalore to Pune in 24 hours flat! I am sure this is record.
    2. Very well packed.

    Dont go for it-YOU WILL REGRET

    I purchased this phone around 2 yrs back and its a waste of money. No apps at all. NO whats app, the games are very bad trust me Galaxy Y is a much better phone. The only thing this phone is good at is playing music. Thats it.
    Dont buy this phone, you will enjoy using it for 3-4 months, later you will feel like throwing it into the dustbin but you cant coz you already wasted money.

    GO FOR IT !! WHY ? READ :

    I ordered it on saturday afternoon, and it reached by monday afternoon!!

    This phone is best for those who are serious, i.e. are not interested in playing games on phone. If you don't want want to play games, just go for it.

    This phone has awesome security features, call/sms blocking, etc.And don't look at its picture on this site, this phone has a robust fine quality plastic body. Count on me, you'll not be embarrassed to carry it in public.

    Touch is quite near to iPhone feel believe me i ...
