Got this black Q7 yesterday for Rs 4850/- in Bangalore. Overall, this is a good phone at a low price band offering dual sim, gprs, wifi with qwerty support. Configuring Wifi & GPRS was manual, but pretty straight forward. Was able to install a few sample java apps from the internet on the phone on the fly without any issues. Even upgraded Opera Mini from V4.2 to V5.1 and realised that the QWERTY keyboard does not work with it (works with the T9 functionality tho) & rolled back to v4.2 again. So, software management is pretty decent.

Coming to comparisons: Do not expect this to be inline with the Nokia E series phones. They keypad is tacky, "." is to be accessed with sym key, menu & back buttons are nt witty, prompts for sim1/sim2 each time inspite of using the correct call button (for SIM1 or SIM2), etc.

Coming to the problems:
1. General - software interface issue: when updating any text field in the browser in this phone, it does not let you key in the details directly into the URL address bar (for example). If you want to type www.gsmarena.com, you hv to select the www. text box. Press edit button, this throws up a select symbol option to which you need to scroll to. Select this "select sym"option and this pops up a white screen. press the menu button again & you can enter your URL & then press OK.. this takes you backto the white screen again where you need to press OK again. Now, it accepts the URL in the address listbox of Operamini. Now, press menu again to connect to this URL. Phew - Do you see how difficult it is? Ideally, once you are at the URL box, you should be able to type and press connect.

2. Still not being able to figure out how to select WLAN or GPRS for browsing in Opera4.2. By default it is using the GPRS connection which is on SIM2. Guess there should be some selection setting, but its not very evident. Have to figure out how this is configured. Ideally, when any application is connecting to the internet, it should pop up the list of internet options & allow the user to select OR let the user set the default.

3. Other than Opera, I have installed Ebuddy (LG KE770 shine model is what is used by Nimbuzz here) and I have no clue of how to make it work with WLAN. Even this installed app is working via GPRS. Guess this is some setting which need to be figured out now.

4. Typical China mobile software. Only the startup screen has a Micromax logo.

5. Sound on the speakers is "loud" & not really of a great quality to speak about. Mentioning this because the website talks of yamaha powered audio here.

6. Voice volume on the speaker during the call is pretty low. Even at max volume, you may not be able to hear well esp when you are outdoors.

Overall:
1. Good phone with packed features for the pricepoint it is available.
2. Only phone meeting the requirements of Dual-SIM + WLAN + QWERTY features
3. Ideal for people upgrading from a low end phone to a feature packed model. But for people moving from a quality branded phones(like Nokia or SE), this may not suit their taste around its voice quality, its build and its touch & feel. This is certainly a NO for people who have a higher end phone (like a Nokia E series for example) and want to explore this phone due to a dual SIM qwerty phone.

Wish Nokia could release their E63 & E71 models with a dual sim versions so that it covers the expectation of business phone with two SIMs.

Didn't understand why they reduced the battery capacity from 1000 mAh to 800 mAh?

Nevertheless, I am eagerly waiting for a 3G version - Q9 adding a 5 mpx camera, with dual LED flash, video recording at 30 fps, 3G with a secondary front camera and a good 1500 mAh Li-Po battery - added to the existing features of Q7.
