Update For INDIANS only:----->
With 6% excise duty Mobile phones will get costlier
As per the Annual Budget 2013-14, the excise duty has been increased and now at 6% on handsets that are priced over INR2000. So get ready to pay more if you are planning to buy a smartphone.Having said that the excise duty is applicable for companies manufacturing the handset in India, like Samsung and Nokia. It will not affect companies that import handsets like Lava, Micromax, Spice etc to name a few. Well as you all know most of the phones are manufactured (in china), rebranded and then exported to India (which will attract import duty in India.Such companies need to pay the import duty which remains unchanged and hence the prices of such handsets will be the same. This is definitely bad news for brands that are manufacturing the handsets.The Excise duty on mobiles was just 1% before and now increased by 5%, total 6%. The handsets that are priced under Rs. 2000 will not attract the duty. I guess most of the users are looking for low cost brands like Micromax and some Chinese players who are eagerly waiting to set their base in India.With bigger brands getting pricy, we will find more and more users shifting to other brands.
[deleted post]Hi dude. Frm my opinion go to MMx A116. It s best. U can google it n most of the reviews in favor of A116 while comparing with Grand. Nw choice is urs. Bt dnt frgt to goolge the fact.
Come on guys, be cool now. i tell u d fact that why MMx phone is cheaper than Samy Grand.
There are many grades of production, which determine the failure possibilities of a product and its price.
The low priced products are just assembled, not engineered and designed well and tested on long terms. Thus reducing the development cost significantly. And thats the basic difference b/w MMx and Samsung. Now its upto u guys. And my personal view about UMI-X2 is that it is much much better than A116 as both of them are pure chinese products.
some of you cannot adjust with the fact that a company is now providing a phone with specs at fair price ,for which they must have paid a fortune.so they are trying to defend themselves from the thought of being fooled by other mnc.
check igyaan,digit and other reputed sites for valid and trustworhy review.
1)yes canvas 3 camera is not great.still provide decent images.check in digit review.
2)battery peformance is avg.modrate use will last for one day.
3)less service centres ,ofcourse samsung is much more popular brand than micromax.
but there was a time everyone just prefered nokia.
Grand score more points in the above discuss points but gaming and many other factors canvas totally blow then off.

I have a single question....If the device shows some errors....Then should I get proper service in our region? There are problems to find service centers.
