What you sow, so shall you reap!!! Stealing others designs/patents and passing them off as your own was never a good idea. Now, $hitDung is facing their own music.

I'm using Micromax A90s from 10 months now. No problem whatsoever. I remember how much my friends had laughed when i told them that i'm going for a Micromax phone. They all laughed back then but stunned once i showed them the real deal. They all appreciated the quality of phone and told me some things aside, it's as good as the SII itself. Difference is... it comes only at fraction of SII's price lol . I was happy for my choice then. 10 months now.. all those rumors about 6 months life of Mmx phones too have been proved wrong. For me at least. Awesome company MMX. No wonder they have reached so far this early. Nothing wrong with rebranding either as soon as they are keeping the price appropriate which I think they do have kept so far at least.
A90s is an awesome phone. Even after almost an year of launch, it still goes as the only available affordable Amoled in the market.. . so hell yeah.. MMX rocks.

samsung should have3.5-3.7 inch screen in low cost android phones. also atleast 8 gb user available internal memory and better battery life. they have good features but small screen and low memory in low cost phones

Nokia still the best. Highest quality products that Micromax, Karbonn and Samsung can never match. Long live Nokia!

Yet India doesn't get same treatment as US or china, with respect to launching new phones.

Hi.. I'm using Micromax Canvas HD since May. It's very good phone with decent battery backup and value for money. I'm even getting Android 4.3 update soon. One thing i hate is, the build quality and the internals are very cheap looking like they will break in no time. Hope Micromax improves it's after sales and service and come up with good build quality, good cameras and good sound.
