presence of two mics makes the call quality great and therefore the call speaker is loud n crystal clear.
with earphones the call quality is equally loud and clear.
people who have problems with call quality must have problem in their network.
i repeat, except for a little extra battery drain during 3g data usage(only 3g data usage, not in any other operation of the phone) the phone battery performs absolutely fine and the phone is smooth as silk be it gaming chatting browsing music or movies.
Got the fone yesterday via ebay. White color.
Touch is smooth
Music quality is good
Camera is good (don't compare it to high end models like xperia z2, htc one etc) but it can accompany you everywhere you go and fulfil your regular photography tasks
UI is best (better than my xperia)
Lightweight and Sleek
1) Brighntess under sunlight could have been little better but its manageable
2) Battery could have been 2500 mah to make it last more longer
Overall, everyphone has Cons so we can ignore the cons for this phone as they are just desirable features but not something which this phone really lacks.
A 5 star phone considering the budget!!

is it speaker problem or what? because i can't hear anyone call and messages notification do not have sound. also when want to make a call i can't hear another person voice. please help me. Overall this phone was not to bad. It has pretty good in design.
I want to buy this phone?
I want to know how is the media playback and camera performance on this phone?
The design is good. And it feels comfortable in hand too. I got the 2gb ram version, the performance is pretty good, I have ran plenty of games without problems. It's just that the volume of the speaker isn't that loud. Otherwise, all great. Definitely worth every penny u spent.
