Battery life is quite acceptable.
It lasted for about 1.5 days with extensive messaging, about 0.5 hours of talk and more than an hour of wifi/bt/gps.

The battery meter hanged quite a long time at 10% (about 4 hours or so below 10% before it drained off completely)

The speed of the phone is satisfactory for this price range. It never showed any major lag.
The only scenario where I felt some lag was at the Market, when I had about 3 apps simultaneously downloading and installing.

The default Contacts mgr doesnt have Groups. Download YouContacts app for that.
Rooted the phone using Z4ROOT and it worked like a charm. For some reason Temporary Root did not work.
But permanent root worked.

The default Messaging app isn't that attractive and lacked some features. GoSMS app solved that issue and it also displays from which SIM (1 or 2) the message is sent/received. The call log also has the similar feature.

Typical resistive touch and I'm loving it. You will never need a stylus. Scrolling along menus is smooth, but not as smooth as you might see in HTC or any other.

Almost all apps that I downloaded worked well. Did not try any games though.

Pros:
1) Cheapest branded dual sim(GSM+GSM) Android phone in the market. Bought its for Rs.5099 (US$110) from Letsbuy.com

2) Android 2.2 (Froyo)

3) Good looks. Matt covers.

Cons:
1) No flash light with the 2MP Camera, which isn't up to the mark.

2) Less than par battery life.

3) Screen could've been better. Little white fonts show a slight tinge of grey with it.

Overall a great phone, with most of its greatness from the power of Android.
I'd surely give it a 4/5 for the features that it offers for this price range.

But the auto screen orientation isn't that responsive.
You need to make a stern conscious effort for the screen to turn.
Haven't tested it fully though.

Even in high end phones, I find auto changing of screen orientations quite annoying. I usually disable it.

> In reply to skd @ 2011-06-10 21:21 from uvfr - click to readYes. I'm trying the phone now by putting it to various tests.
So far the phone hasn't hanged.
Call quality is good. No complaints from people at other end of the line.
I'll post a complete review with pros and cons along with a video shortly.

regards,
Hari

Just got the phone delivered an hour back.
The speaker volume is good. Could be quite annoying too.

The headset volume is good. Couldn't keep the vol in max as it was very loud for me.

Overall is phone is great except for some slight sluggishness.
The only minus is the display, letters are kinda jaggered.
ofcourse, can't expect to own a gorilla for this price!

Can you also let us know the sound quality (music) and volume and the camera quality?

I guess we cant expect camera quality at this price point but clear and loud music through the headphones should be there.

> In reply to Avishek Das @ 2011-06-04 08:45 from 9KYR - click to readya i m using this phone
some issues are there
1. screen is moderately responsive.
2. i think it will last a day with 30 min surfing , 1 hr talk and 1 hr music although i think surfing could cause rapid fall in battery
3. if u remove some crap-ware from phone phone become quite responsive
4. and ya u can download apps from market freely without any issues
i wont recommend if u want super performance phone but if u want a decent phone with average features and battery life it is still a worth to buy.
(root it with z4root and u can remove crapware in phone with appdelete from market)

Hello all,

I have ordered this phone for Rs.5.1k from letsbuy.com.
Will get it in a couple of days. I'll post a full hands on review once I get it.

The bitter thing is, there isn't any single professional review of this phone anywhere on the web and I've risked my money in buying this one.

I already have Spice QT-44 (a dual SIM QWERT phone from spice for Rs.1.4k). I was very badly in need of a dual sim android phone.

There were a couple of Chinese dual sim android phones in ebay.in, but they were all quite expensive than this.

Hope this newbie lives my expectations.

regards,
Hari

> In reply to kaulan @ 2011-05-30 20:56 from bJiA - click to readHi Kaulan,

Could you please share the following experience about this phone if you are using it.

How is the performance of the phone (lags and hangs if any)

How responsive is touch screen
How is the battery life (will it last a whole day with about 1 hr of talkign 1 hr of music and 30 mins of surfing)
How is the sound quality (loudness or ring,loudness of speaker, music quality and loudness)
Can you download apps from the android market.

My reason to ask because Micromax A60 was a piece of junk and I really dont wanna waste money on this phone if there are performance issues with the basic phone.
