Ive been using this phone for about 4 months now. Its more or less a good phone with somewhat a sturdy build quality.
PROS :
Quad Core processor(After rooting if you keep all cores online, youll really feel the increase in performance)
OK viewing angles.
Still view image capture is good.
sound quality is good
Internet usage is good
cheap price.
CONS :
Outdated processor of old architecture (Snapdragon 200)
bad GPU(adreno 203)
cannot play 1080p videos, some 720p videos can be played.
mkv videos frame really badly.
UI is slow and laggy at times and tbh really stupid.
I would have preferred stock android on this.
REALLY BAD, TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE VIDEO OUTPUT(Even on 720p hd option the output is really bad. please can you fix this by changing the video format to mp4 instead of .3gp format in an update).
Touch screen sensitivity is poor inaccurate and really annoying at times.
Heating on prolonged usage
(Ironically the old architecture of the processor was supposed to help in saving power and reduce heating.)
default keyboard layout in landscape mode is a little down and the space key is sometimes difficult to type
So all in all, not really a phone to be recomended.

So effectively youre left with about 756mb of RAM. The phones OS also occupies a lot of space so thats why you get less storage space on this phone.

For me, this phone is so awesome. Theres no lag. And the battery lasts longer than any phone. The best phone ive ever had. Good for gamers like me. I can play NBA 2K14. Woah. Believe me or not. Its true. User friendly phone.

I understand of battery problem. My mobile has the least battery life. But when I charge it for at least 3-4 hours. It lasts for long time. And does not drain even a bit while using it.

So here's suggestion to all of you who feel that battery does not last. Please charge it continuously for long time. If possible switch off the phone and charge. You'll definitely get better results.

AWFUL. I absolutely regret getting this phone. At first I thought that it would be great since it was getting rave reviews here back in August. Now, all I see are negative reviews with which I totally agree with.

Problem a. Battery drains extremely fast

Problem b. Charging Pin. Of course since the battery drains fast, you'll be charging the phone twice or even thrice in a day. On that note, the charging pin is not secure at all. I now have a hard time charging my phone as the charging pin is a bit "in" the phone. I had it fixed back in December. So yeah, this is the second time I've had this problem.

Problem C. It restarts itself. And of course, with the restart, the phone's battery goes down by 10 percent.

Problem D. Sound quality goes down as time goes by. At first I was so excited because it was so loud! Give it 3 months. It won't be so loud.

Problem E. Heats up. Quickly.

I cannot wait to exchange it for a better android phone. One that has a better battery and hopefully, a better processor/
