    First of all I am veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy much happy with the service of Flipkart…..You people should manufacture your own product!!!

    About Phone……………..
    I am using this phone for last 15 days…The phone has 1.2 GHz dual core processor coupled with Adreno 203 graphics unit & 1GB RAM which looks good on paper, but not at all good in real scenario . I am very much disappointed when I see my friend is playing Subway Surfers/ Temple Runner flawlessly with his I-ball..Could u imagine ..its I-ball with 512 MB of RAM and my Core is struggling so much with 1 GB of RAM to play the same game flawlessly.

    Another problem I am facing is gets heated up very quickly even after watching video for a short time (5-10 minutes)

    Only Camera and display are pretty good….so sorry not recomanded

    It is a very good phone, almost all expert reviews says it. I dont understand why people compare it to other while writing reviews.
    Focus on the phone’s performance.
    1. 1.2 GHz Dual core gives good performance to work, but large Games will lag.
    2. 1GB RAM is a good deal when it comes to gaming and running applications.
    3. Screen Size is good, lower than Grand, but high than S Duos.
    4. Resolution is good, but not for Games.
    5. 5MP cam is also good, people who say its very low, excuse please, if you want to take professional quality photos, have a CAM. Still Photo quality is very nice.
    6. Interface is good.
    7. Android Jelly Bean 4.1 is amazing.
    8. Have accelerometer and Compass.
    9. Phone turns off screen when user is not viewing it, thus saves battery.
    10. 1800 mah battery is better than nokia lumia’s 1300 mah even.
    11. Front cam also there.

    I have found the phone good. But if you want more, spend some more bucks and buy and samsung galaxy S4, and compare that with all other phones.

    Price is a issue, it shud have been placed around 8000, in 13000 or more, samsung shud give Super Amolded display, Quad core, and Adreno 305.

    I have purchased this phone last Wednesday i.e. 31.07.2013. The first day of purchase was gone exploring the various features of the phone. Though I am not a tech geek in the real sense of the term, yet I say that this phone is surely overpriced, given the varieties available today. I should have been ideally priced between Rs. 13,000/= to Rs. 14,000/= given the configuration standards of today, or even a little less. Its display is good, and the screen respond to touches well. Internet surfing is decent. I am not an avid gamer, but most of the games can be played well. Accepts all kinds of messages and can be opened without any glitches. However, one major negative aspect is what I am constrained to point out is that for a mobile of this configuration, one 1800 mAh battery? It should have been ideally at least 2100mAH one. I fail to appreciate why such miserly treatment in case of battery configuration. Most smartphones, on account of a larger screen space consumes more battery within a short time. Hence, it should have been systemically programmed to consume less energy and, moreover, the higher configuration battery should have been ideally inserted, this should have solved many issues with this model. All the prospective purchasers, I would suggest to be careful about battery issues of this mobile. The other aspects might be okay. But battery is woefully weak, since it sucks energy just like parched lands take to water. No amount of battery doctoring have helped. So be careful about this battery issues. Otherwise, it has a decent display, a decent interface, good workability, decent gaming capabilities, editing documents, and miscellaneous office work is truly a breeze. But being left in the lurch, with mobile switched off during peak hours in the evening (since after whole night of charging you have gone out for work at 9 am in the morning and is not slated to return before 9 pm at least, and the mobile has gone off at around 6 pm and you are not amongst those who carries a power bank with you) is surely a turn off factor. It claims to have a battery life of around 9 hours, but for heavy users like me, the first day itself, after charging the battery fully, I got not more than 3 hours. Folks, I must say that the energy consumption is an issue. Lastly, the looks department disappoints. My early mobile was E-63, so being used to using a mobile phone with such a solid build quality, this type of looks surely sucks, poor bland cheap plastic, with a little glossy look. One aspect, Samsung should consider giving the flip cover for free for all models above Rs. 14,000/= and shall make available flip covers for all smartphone models costing less, with such flip cover be sold at a nominal price. Such flip covers are essential for protecting the phone, since the surface of display requires it to be protected with care (much more care is needed than you take for your beautiful, rather sizzlingly beautiful wife), since none of these models comes with Gorilla Glass, and, hence, scratches (notwithstanding scratch guard) will be imminent, sans a screen guard and a flip cover. So folks since the same is not being supplied gratis, make sure you buy, even if the same is of a cheaper variety, it is required to keep the display life of the phone intact. 1GB RAM is decent for a phone of this configuration. In my opinion, those who look for frills (though I did not exactly looked for it, for my choice of Lumia 720, but I made the mistake of going for the slight price difference and opted for this model, I personally did not like Lumia 62, and, hence this choice), in addition to utility, this is the right phone, notwithstanding the woeful battery deficiency, but those who looks for quality – build quality, superior sound, and stable performance even after years of usage (even though users today buy mobile phones at the drop of a hat), these series of phones should not be considered. But those who are frequent buyers, try this one, this will at least not disappoint you and shall keep you sucked with the novelty elements at least till six months after purchase, unless you are exasperated with the woeful battery. Please don’t try to play online games and never games with 3D interface, since this will slow down the phone and the battery will be discharged within no time, may be within an hour. So folks be careful. Also the display glass is not of superior built, so please take care of it. I am writing this review with limited knowledge of technology, on the contrary, this review should be considered as more of an user’s reaction to such device. I have merely expressed my opinion based on what I have faced using this mobile.

    Phone hangs too frequently, phone reboot required everyday.
    If you want exceptional phone at this range then go for MotoG(http://www.flipkart.com/moto-g/p/itmdsmbxcrm9wy8r?pid=MOBDSGU2ZMDYENQA&otracker=variants)

    I bought this phone in november 2013.
    After using a a blackberry, nokia, LG and iphone 3(last used). I thought that i shud give samsung a try, wanting to not over splurge i decided to go for this model based on the budget and the many reviews i had read.
    On the very first day of use i kind of figured out what i was in for..and after 5 months of use all my fears are true..
    1. Its damn slow..now that i have over 500 pics..everytime i open the gallery its gets hung up..i have to close the application to get it to work again.
    2. the phone sometime switches off without warning of low battery(shocking), and then when you start it up..it says battery drained.
    3. gets heated up while charging.
    4. camera is ok but takes a long time to process a pic.
    5. gps is so slow that u mite cross a place n then it will show u the location.
    6. memory space is too low..a few apps and videos n songs n u r done..no othr option but to get an additional sd card..but hw does that help anyways..cuz it again slows done the device many folds..pheww..
    7. even receivng the call is delayed sometimes.

    All in all..i am so gonna sell this off very soon..its too lazy a device.
    I am not saying that it is terrible for the price you pay..but only buy if you are ready to put up wit a slow and retarded device.

    I have been using this phone for about 2 weeks now. This phone is too good for the price.

    Call Quality: After all you buy a phone for this main point and yes this phone does not disappoint. Reception is good and calls are very clear and even the other person can hear us clearly.

    Display: Very vivid. Good viewing angles too. 35% brightness is more than enough for indoors. Colors are very natural. But outdoor viewing is bad, I would not say worst but bad. You need to increase the brightness manually to full as there is no sensor in this phone.

    Battery: It lasts for one full day with normal to moderate usage which includes, 1.5hr of call, 45 min of gaming, 80% in wifi and remaining in 3G (basically 24hours connected to internet), email, messaging. Well if you cut the gaming part it will lasts for 2 days. The device idle time is too good. When left overnight only 4% is reduced in the morning when you wake up. This usage again is with Single SIM. I did use dual SIM but only for 3 days or so. Even in that case it would easily with stand one full day.

    Performance: Butter smooth but with NOVA LAUNCHER and not with TouchWiz as it lags. People who complaint about the lag on this phone is mainly due to Touchwiz. Please install Nova Launcher on this phone the moment you buy it. Battery life gave an increase once I changed the launcher.

    Games: Temple Run, Candy Crush games run smooth but games like Sub way surfer lags but not that much that you cant play. One good thing is that phone does not get heated up extremely when games played for 30 min. it gets warm.

    Camera: Good in day light and bad in night and indoors. Flash is good. Cannot record videos at 720p.

    Sound & Speaker: Well this one is a definite negative. Speaker is not that loud and even the audio output via the 3.5mm jack is not good.

    @Rameshkumar Gopalakrishnan: This is one among the few phones which has Dual SIM Active mode. This does support 2 SIM at the same time. Ex: If you are on call with SIM1 and then someone tries to call you in SIM2, the call is forwarded to SIM1. Trust me I have tried this and it works perfectly. Only point is that the person would be hearing that the “Call is getting forwarded. Please wait”. You need to enable that in the SIM Card manager settings.

    @aanal shah: This phone has Wifi hot spot and I have connected my laptop with the phone’s 3G connection and it works without any issues.

    before buying this, i was skeptical because of the confusing reviews, half the people said it was a great phone and the other half said it sucked.
    My major concern was battery life as a lot of people complained that battery was below avg.

    But after using it for over a month i can say that i am fully satisfied and i have no complains at all.

    1. The display is bright , fluid and crisp, the ppi may seem low but it doesn’t affect at all. you cant see a pixel. the front vga camera is also good, i couldn’t believe it was only 1.3 mp

    2. Using net on this phone is a perfect delight. i have had no glitches at all.

    3. THE CAMERA IS ITS BEST FEATURE. i wasnt expecting it to be this good, the phone beats sony and iphone pics in its ability to focus on objects. and by adjusting white balance i was able to take some great indorr shots as well. the cam can focus at a distance of one inch from the object which is spectacular. my nikon digicam cant, i was shocked.

    4. ABOUT THE BATTERY. it is average, but it is not as bad as people have been telling you everywhere. i m getting a backup of more than one day everyday and i wouldn’t describe my use as below avg. the only problem is, the phone loses battery even on stand-by. usually cell phones loose negligible battery on stand-by, but thats not the case with core. even so, as long as it lasts for over 24 hrs, i hv no complains.

    5. the videos play pretty smoothly, even though the device cannot play avi and divx files, your computer can convert the video files in the appropriate format and with the help of vlc, i have been able to play virtually every file.

    6. games play without any glitches at all. yes it does heat up a bit during gaming and also if you use the phone during charging, but its bearable. also, if you use a cover then heating wont be an issue at all.

    7. there is a minor lag at times while using the phone, but its acceptable, it wont bother you. phone doesn’t lag at all while playing games. touch is very responsive. the memory and ram are sufficient for a smooth hassle free use.

    8. finally, the phone is light weight and sleek, looks good in blue, but of course all that gets screwed up if you use a cover.

    9. i wish it had louder speakers.

    I am using it phone from the past 5 days. And I am very much satisfied with it. According to me this is the best phone that is available in the market at this price. Here are some pros and cons –

    Pros –
    1.2 Ghz Dual Core(Fast Processing)
    1 GB RAM(Fast Speed, Doesn’t Hang)
    Display is Awesome. Colors are very good.
    Dual Sim
    Perfect Size(Handy) I don’t like 5” display.
    Good Build Quality
    Jelly Bean 4.1.2
    Very Reasonable Price – I purchased it for 12200/-

    Cons –

    External Sound is average not too good.
    Video Recording is 720/480 (Not HD)
    No Vacume Earphones. (But I like simple earphones)

    Overall it is a very good phone and must buy at this price range.
