this comment is for those who criticize micomax brand,
just because of its an indian brand or its a Chinese product, hope u all are able to surf internet, if not then how u put ur jokes over on this site, search about the sale of this phone then u will realize that how much popular this phone is, u will also realize about the demand of this phone. by the some steps of micromax and other local brands every company are reducing the cost of its phones, i knw that u are still not believe on it just take an example of Galaxy S3 within a year more than 10k prize reduced. just because of brand name how much extra they are charging by us..!!

Guys, BIG DOUBT. Why d'you think these phones like Micromax are getting cheaper? You may attribute it to competition, but... but.. but,

I've heard this company is funded by Telecom companies & doesn't specifically aim for better returns. Such phones encourage Data consumption, which is obviously VERY profitable for Telecom companies. Even if it encourages messaging its profitable.

Simple math :

1 text message = 160 characters (160 bytes max.)

so 1 GB = 62,50,000 messages
62,50,000 x 0.5 = 31,25,000 (Rs)

Suddenly the Rs.17,20,00,00,00,000/- scam doesn't look big anymore! All they need is 2,75,200GB of data transfer

FURTHERMORE, Assuming an average geeks monthly download is 50GB in fixed broadband, All we'd need is 5000 "geeks worth" of download for ~1.1 month(s) to consume that!

1) That in reality, and Realty, mobile internet doesn't really cost as much as fixed broadband lines (that need to be physically drawn across the city)

2) And that 5000 geeks aren't hard to find for the ENTIRE telecom industry)

I bought it from, they also happen to sell !
I tried looking on Snapdeal but found them mentioning it now as "BOOK NOW". Kept finding and found one good site selling it.... just 9Rs costlier than Snapdeal ;-)

All you Samsung guys there!
do you really think everyone's gonna pay such a huge amount of 700$ (34k inr) for Samsung note ll???
For the price of Samsung note ll you could buy 2 Micromax Canvas HD and still save a lot of money for a nice b'day present for your mom.
Micromax Canvas HD A116 is a must buy at such price range with awesome features which can blow your mind off. Samsung is a well known brand and always preferable over Micromax, but if the price difference is this huge i would definitely go for Micromax Canvas HD A116 as most people will.
