    Hey GUYZ DELL XCD 35 IS A GUD MOBLIE COZ IF YOUR BUDGET IS OF 10,000/- DEN THERE ARE NO MOBILES WHICH WE WANT, IF U TAKE SAMSUNG POP, FIT, Y, THEY ALL HAVE SMALL SCREEN AND THEY CAN’T EVEN HANDEL THE HD GAMES OR APPLICATION, THOUGH DELL IS COPYRIGHT BUT WE HAVE BRANDED MOBILE, DELL XCD35 HAS A LARGE SCREEN AND HAVE A CLEAR SCREEN, SAMSUNG DOESN’T HAVE CLEARE SCREEN…….
    SAMSUNG HAVE LOW RAM AND INTERNAL MEMORY..AND IT IS HALF ANDROID AND JAVA..ITS A MIX BREAD.
    DELL HAS BIGGER THAN THAT……ITS FULL ANDROID…….

    IF YOU DONT WANT DELL.

  • Durgesh

    Worst phone with poor battery backup. Worst customer service also. You get a phone with replacement warranty and rest assured that you will have to go for replacement multiple times during the year…. Don’t rush into buying any such fake products launched any market even if it is launched by dell. My experience .. Horrrible..

  • pia

    I have xcd 28 nd i installed easy tether lite version to connect my laptop with my phone to surf internet on my laptop but this free version does not support https. so I cannot login to almost all sites.
    Is there any other option wherein i can connect without having to buy softwares.
    Other brand handsets do not have a connectivity headache as they come with PC suites. i’m struggling to get full internet access on my laptop. Even the Android SDK installation requires a XML file on a Https url. Its getting very painful for me with the handset.
    Also I cound not find a PC suite to SYNC my cell data to my laptop.
    Neither could find any modem drivers( including for ZTE racer) that can work.
    Please help, else I have get rid of the handset, its a showstopper……plz help me out

      please note that we personally don’t recommend this phone!

      • Jagan

        Hello,

        Any particular reason for not recommending this phone.

        I m looking for a phone around Rs. 8000 with decent camera, good audio & video playback, GPS (which can work offline.. I dont want to use internet)and android OS (havent used it earlier though). This mobile is available at Rs. 8200 in my region and based on reviews I could gather that it has good resolution, decent touch response, good speaker phone, decent camera in proper lighting conditions and GPS (which can work offline). I have learnt that battery can be managed by proper use of this phone.

        If not this phone which would you recommend for me. Eagerly waiting for your reply before I finalize on this one.

        Thanks in advance

        • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

  • amar singh

    i want to sell my dellxcd28 with all accessories in a low price of 7000rs.

  • gautam

    Hi Bought a Dell XCD 35 handset and I simply love this set for its quality especially at this price. Going by all the feedback in this forum I guess we need to have a mindshift here. Gone are the days of the Nokia handsets which were as hard as a brick, could survive a 5 story fall and have no qualms about it. If you go back 10 years from now computers had a lesser config than the phones which we have now. As a result we will have to live with some heat on the phones, lesser battery life and of course compromise on some features. Nokia, Sony still sell similar speced phones for double the price and a bit less of the problems mentioned above. As an alternative to all the problems with these phones I guess we need to act smart rather than crib over the issues. Carry your data cable if not your charger. I am sure a USB post should always be around. Camera in a phone is an added feature, lets leave it that way. It will work its way out of emergencies where you need a camera. Hope this helps ……

  • rut

  • awnish sharma

    Dell XCD35, is a very good phone. now a days all branded company handset made in china, wether its nokia or sony ericsson. I have tested battry backup and its more than 1.5 day. my usage are 1-2 hr talk and 15 mins of internet access. these bloody guys dont know how to use a phone. if u need a good photograph then better buy a camera. this is best cell and value for money for those who need to talk, text and internet access. sound quality is not excellent but good. for same features u need to pay 4K – 5K extra in other brands and no other brand has “replacement warranty” other than Dell.
    choice is yours…

  • rdsoze

    can anyone out there can tell me how to go for the Original one..i saw in homeshop18 they tells a lot but now these comments here really makes me crazy..

    • ashish

      this is a nice cell. battery backup is good if you close your all unneccesory application which runs inside your cell phone.

      it a android mobile so it is good for virus protection.

  • Saransh

    Hey the battery backup is fine its just that you have to switch off unnecessary features like animation and heptic feedback etc.

  • Dharmesh

    mobile Betry backup not good………

    many time chard in a day ……….

  • sagar

    dell mobile batry bakup is very bad

  • Wolf a.k.a Genius

    @Cirtex – What would u rather hold in ur hand ?? A dell or some unknown Chinese phone ???

  • Cirtex Review

    I have seen some similar phones with same design and mostly the same features except the operating system, in some of the china devices. They are priced at nearly half of these Dell phones.

  • peter

    Never buy this product from dell. Pure chines handset with all the good features( battery, sound, 3G , GPS wifi, Bloooootuth Fm with headset, camera, LCD display, Microwave owen -produce high heat, Hit hard the tough screen by hammer, when I slide it zooms). I don’t know how I can through away one I purchased last week. Pathetic one.

  • kiran
