However it's even worse when companies keep those dreadful conditions (think of Apple, Samsung and most phones and computer manufacturers) while getting a much higher markup for their overpriced products. If you don't want to support dreadful working conditions, don't buy anything assembled in Foxconn or other similar sweatshops. Good luck finding those tech products.

If they only used snapdragon 800 or even 600, but overall it's good with being at least the only smartphone that support 3MP front camera.

No thanks!

yes they will release such phones at such prices and u can forget about customer service or timely updates. i dont know if there are even sufficient sources for these SOCs to help devs port the latest OS. Xperia go/p/u/sola users are struggling coz there are virtually no sources to port JB, hard for the devs.

This may sound amazing on paper, but trust me guys, you get what you pay for. The Micromax mentioned here is made by a Chinese company which makes the same set for Pakistani market under the brand QMobile Noir. I checked it out. Screen was decent but the performance was atrocious. Even one year old single core processor performs better than these quad cores. Its not their fault though, since they price these sets accordingly. Just don't expect that you will get HTC or Samsung or Sony quality
