This is my personal opinion, This phone does what its intended to do and does it perfectly well. Audio is clear and good, Videos are good, Good Widgets, GUI looks great, Good presentation and lots more.... on the whole good value for money, for Rs: 6700/= i cannot expect Apple Iphone or Adriod based phones, This is good.
Brew OS doesn't have many games or Apps available on the web.
Video player has few issues, the video seek bar or progress bar doesn't show video more than ~40mins of play,
The mobile switches off automatically while watching videos, for reason unknown.
Camera may be a issue, coz its a fixed focus rather than a auto focus.
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2011this particular model is not good... u will get it frm any authorised dealer for min rs 7300/-... morethanx frnd for telling please give me ur id i want to know more about it please i want good touchphone in 7k
This is a very good phone. So far it has served me well. Everything that I need is featured int his phone. It is the simpliest way to get connected.
Every phone has a feature fit to its user. So if some guys tell you not to buy a particular handset its because they are dumb enough to know what they need. And some of em don't have money to buy even a cheap one.

is the audio video quality, battery backup & browsing speed good..
overall would u say, that i should put my money on it???
given a chance would u prefer nokia c5 or htc smart?
i m confused between nokia c5 & htc smart f1388..
htc smart is a touch with brilliant looks but does not have secondary camera & gps,, moreover its reveiws r very poor. some says it have a very slow os & poor battery while other says its pretty good..
on d other hand nokia is not enuf good looking but great in features...

plz help me guyz,which one to buy?
