Remaining things are perfect
About the fone, its too early to review it. But with experience so far:
1.Looks: Stylish. Feel good factor when in hands. Built quality is good.
2. Quad core but i think its a5 processor, so may equivalent to a9 dual core. May be.
3. 1gb ram. could download latest games and play them seamlessly
4. QHd displaywith 16m colors. Evn though meagre 220-230 ppi, the display looks lively. Bright colors on 5 inch display. I think its an ips display. Not sure though.
5. JB 4.1
6. Speakers are good. Call quality if fine. Didnt take many calls on the phone.
7. Camera: excellent in day light. Not so good during night. Have auto focus, face recognition, panorama, led flash.
8. Very very smooth, no lag on multi tasking, with jb, project butter, quad core and 1gb ram, i dnt think ther has to b a lag.
1. Battery: Many reviews complained about the running time. Im not a heavy gamer but rely lot on browsing with wifi. It had sufficient juice for 1 day operations. Its 2000mah. Charger is of 800mah. So expect to charge the phone from 0 to 100 in 2 and half to 3 hours.
2. Guys who are used to 1020p display might find this display boring. But i have a phone with 240ppi and 16m color. But i like the s5 display better for the reasons mentioned above.
3. Touch: Five point multi touch but i found my other phone (videocon a30) touch more responsive. The touch is not laggy but had to apply tad mre force to swipe.
4. HEAT: this s the mst heard complaint of this fone. Yeh. It heats up but which smart fone doesn’t. I dnt thnk it wil b an issue if u use a flip cover. It might b a problm fr heavy gamers and people who speak fr long durations
5. Couldn find google now. May b i didnt search in the ryt places. In play store, i couldn find it.
6. Adreno 203 sad .
These r the initial findings. If anyone has queries or wnt me to chck any features, please do ask. I would b glad to do tht. Thr is no magnetic sensor i reckon. So no compass apps. BOTTOMline, if you r not a heavy gamer but spends time on browsing or lots of apps, and searchng for 5 inch fone, go for it. Check out the comparision revire of Micromax HD and this fone in you tube. I found this fone better expect with the display
