1) Excellent solid L look with 4" screen
2) For 800mhz phone.. 1500mAh battery is nice
3) Good internal memory 2.6GB(user available)
4) 5MP with Flash
5) ICS

1) Given 512MB RAM but user available RAM is just 391MB
2) Apps cannot be moved to SD card(Very big drawback)
3) Low resolution with just 144 ppi
4) No front cam
5) Can play only 480p and not more than that(Even in MX Player)

Overall good piece..

i have this phone. i think its one of the most beautiful phones ever. but that is everythink good.
the resolution is really bad and almost all of games lag, but i must mention that battery life is very good. if i play games and listen to music it still have more then 60% after one day (example: my mother have prestigio phone and she dont play games or sth like that. she just call several times a day and her battery is low (20%) in one day

Hey Praveen,

Point 7 is wrong. Download FB and then you get a choice to sync fb contacts with your phone contacts.
Viber can be downloaded and it works if yours friends are active on viber. I didn' t feel viber as user friendly.

As soon as you pick the phone out of box, you will love it. Once you switch ON, you will feel that you bought really a bad phone, with worst pixels, worst cam, viewing angles and so on. Then you got to install ucam, dolphine browser, aps to sd ( orange colour) , file manager, send to sd, lock. Then use this phone. In a week you will fall in love with this phone. I do accept that making a call is quite difficult as there is a delay in dialing. Good battery for sure. If you find better phone plz go for it. If you have alreadybought this one try using it using all the apps i recomended. It will be user friendly.

i bought it in 12300 rs and i have to say that except its look it's the worst phone i ever had ,

4" display is very bad ,you can easy see the pixels on display , it display resolution looks like a carpet where lines are going left or right on. if display is so poor then what's the use of a smart phone.

camera is okay but video recording is very poor and flash light is have on use.
