I have being using this phone since one month and would like to highlight some of the pros and cons

Cons
1. The battery life with 3G activated is a big time problem, probably the mobile has to be charged almost 2 times every day with minimal usage and couple of hours of call

2. The Moment you get a call on one of the sim, the data service stops and will start again once you end the call on the active sim

3. After you register the phone or start the phone and connect it to wi-fi you get an firmware upgrade notification. The moment you upgrade it there are some behaviour change

- While on call, when the part on the other end keeps the phone before you you will get a out of service notification in red on your phone and it will take some time to catch the network back again, around 10 to 15 secs. During this period you will not be able to call

- The Data Service sometimes doesn't work on 2G (GPRS) and the only option is to restart the phone. Once the phone is restarted the data service works.
Have not seen this problem after activating 3G services on the phone but that costs you the battery Charge on per day basis

- List of application along with the phone is less and some of them are not useful enough - my opinion

- The performance/response time of the phone is a bit delay after upgrading

Pros
Good Touch and type facitlity with qwetry nicely placed so that the typo errors are less

Decent camera

Video call facility (Still have not tested it) with front and back camera in place

Dual Sim - Both can recieve calls at any time, however when a call is on on one of the sim the other sim will not be reachable

Android platform

I feel now android being the Operating system on lot of phones, other manfacture are providing the same with lost cost and similar specs.
So, do look for other brands as well before deciding on this model

Have Upgraded to new firmware yesterday so lets see the performance. will post the same in couple of days

Guys this is the best phone in mid range android mobile category. this phone is better than BB 9900 which also is touch and type but it sucks. This mobile is so handy to use and when you end all apps, the battery last for 1 1/2 days.
The touch screen is so fluid and the key pad is also handy even for large hands.Camera is not a concern as this is mobile and not a Nikon HD camera to expect quality pics.
I just have a clarification here, when downloading apps the apps are stored and installed in the phone memory and not the SD card. I could like to change the destination as SD card for all my downloads and installations. Please assist here.......

Hi! I am facing a problem with this set. My phone is automatically switching off and on many times a day. Sometimes it automatically switched off and not even switch on unless I saw it when I want to make call. Then I need to remove the battery and place it again, switch on.

Is anybody facing this problem? Is there any solution for it? Please help me.
