Lets hope the build quality is as good as karbonn A9

Now a days most of the smartphones are made in China including iphone4-s, Samsung, Sony, LG etc. The build quality is decent enough for this phone.
"and the RAM in it i have heard that it has 512mb ram"
Here is the excert from the xda-developers forum about the Disk/partition dump of this phone.
Here is the memory dump of Celkon A97.
Sects size is 512 bytes. 2 sectors is 1KB.
Size in MB is calculated as ( number_sects / 2) / 1024 . All sect size are in hex. Convert it into decimal.

"i have heard that it has 512mb ram..is this sufficient to play games like temple run.."

So if you can play the game temple run in iphone4-s, you can definetly play that game in this phone.
".can we upgrade andriod OS to higher version available in market..."
Android OS upgrade is typically not available through the googleplay aka market. This is usually provided by the manufacteror of phone or by the custom firmware upgrade by android community.
"...is battery realy so poor?"
The battery is decent and is comparable with any other Smartphone in this category. Given the size of the display which is "four inches", if it can last a day, it is considered to have a very good battery life
iphone4-s also has a similar battery life.
actualy i m confused about its build quality whtehr this phone looks like cheap china made phone and the RAM in it i have heard that it has 512mb ram..is this sufficient to play games like temple run...can we upgrade andriod OS to higher version available in market...is battery realy so poor?..plz reply anyone who have used it..i will be thnkful
the battery charging time for this phone is 2.30 to 3.00 hours from (15% to 100%) (the useless manual says 4 hrs)
the stand by time with sparing use is more than 24hrs.
I charged the Battery to 100% and used it to browse youtube on wifi for 45min, and the battery showed 69% at the end... which is ok i guess.
totally on 21hrs of standby, the wifi usage was 2hrs:41min and it still had 20% charge left.
some flaws in the design...
the volume control and the screen lock buttons are flimsy,
might not last long (comments welcome).
Also the accessories .
the usb plug is bulky on the phone side.
average camera performance.
Over all it is a good phone, considering its cost.
buy it instead of any other phone at this price, considering its specs and performance.
A97's battery is very good. The new models of Celkon are much much better than the older onee in terms of quality. I am using this phone with 3g and edge... i only charge it daily morning for an hour.
How long does the battery last on wifi and edge data continuously on??? Could somebody who has bought it, tell us about the batter backup in detail without any prejudices??.
can you please explain the performance and android update facility is there?.
how long the battery to charge?
hi celkon piece is very good and the touch is too good but the battery is very bad because i bought a new piece on 21st of july 2012 but immediately i got repaired because of the battery so please take care of the battery
Prashanth Sira, 15 Jul 2012Hi dear FRIENDS
I brought this beautiful set on 06 Jul 12 and till date i am using the phone ... more"Camera shows 5 MP but the quality comes out of 3.2MP only and has no flash "
5MP = 2592 x 1936 pixels.
If a camera can record a picture at this pixels or more, it qualifies to be a 5MP. However the quality of the picture depends on the sensitivity of the CCD/CMOS sensor.
