i have bought this phone on March 2012 for Rs 5200 from chandigarh . i want to share my experience with every one.
its a cheapest dual sim android phone with good config which supports native 3g video calling , i hvae tested it it works fine . wifi works fine . Gps take lot of time to acquire but still works ok.
1 First problem is of its two to three time rebooting as u will restart the phone as it hangs usually during touch operation at least 7-8 times. God nows why it happen .
2 After booting it some times will not show ur sim directory, for that u need to reboot it again , and wait for another 2 to 3 reboots , so it get starts.
3 third experience of this phone i want to share is , that it restart during active calls , ur call drops , and after rebooting it show no network for some time @ (battery charged to to 100% ).
4 i experience humming noise problem during the call.
GOD knows how TELECOM Standard Org. pass such
Stupid & Weak Arch of mobile manufacturers.
i have sent my phone twice to service center till now.
GOD knows what will happen .
Starting of mi-280 with two to three reboots is a common problem , not a problem its habit of this phone.
i become use too of it. u should be too.

I have purchased this phone about three months back due to 3G and video calling support but i coudn't use them as all operators viz. airtel, vodafone, aircel tell me that your mobile doesn't support these features. why ? at the same time this is preloaded with a lot of applications which i don't want to use but it doesn't install them. please help me to uninstall them too.
