But for the price dat i paid and what my friend paid, m satisfied, as screen is not a very big issue. Its above avg, battery is gud as well nt excellent, and camera is fine,, i have playee subway surfers, angry birds, and faced no hiccups.....this is value for money, if grand vud have been around 15 k, i wud have gone for it, but there is major difference in price for both, 8000-7000 in india.....i vud suggest u go vid new nokia handsets that nokia about to launch,cheap, best and fluid...nways cheers

Chinese company should be appreciated for able to produced high end features smartphone at throwaway price, in comparison to other’a flagship smartphone like iPhone5, BB Z10,HTC One, Lumia 920,galaxy Note 2 etc etc.
All the above phone too either manufactured or assembled from Foxconn like factories in China.

Chinese companies that can produce high spec stuff like these are now a dime a dozen. It's just that they don't have service support backup like Nokia Care or Micromax.

So if prices do rise, the next company will tear them down. An endless cycle till there is a monopoly.

The Koreans, Finns and the Americans have been gouging the rest of the world with their markups. iPhone4 bill of materials was only 187 dollars or less than Rs 10,000 in 2010. The Chinese onslaught will set things right.

Lol..... Just got it for my dad just for Gmail and some Angry Birds..... It's awesome and the biggest lol is that it supports Real racing 3 and also runs it smoothly with extremely small lag (but app version is 1.0 so it'll fixed i think).... Cheers

It's not a good idea to compliment a quality smartphone with mid range smartphone price. If all of us keeps commenting like that, when the manufacturer finds out, they will increase the price equivalent to IPHONE. Once they increase the price, there's no turning back. You and me will end up buying an expensive phone.
