    Rs.1650 along with taxes is way good option for those who haven’t been able to buy such a lucrative phone with all the 18,000 bucks hard cash. coz for some its abit difficult. on top it has a very good touch screen. but yeah, keep the sar level in mind fellas.. 🙂 or u might get knocked down.. theres a problem about how to add a device to our gmail account in the android market app. anybody with the solution ?? reply asap ! i”m gonna buy this phone.!!

    If I would have to get it on credit card EMI than why this mobile.. there are plenty other android phones in the market and better than this one.. MTS guys are not giving it on per month rental for that they are asking for ITR of 5 lakhs, can you believe and one more thing I want to disclose what I got to know from them (MTS Outlet) is taxes are not included in mentioned prices above so it will charge you more than they are disclosing.. so beware of getting fooled by free free options.. take care all!!

    Dont buy this phone,
    battery is so terrible, even you have to charge it 3 times in a day for 1 hour each, USB charger wont work at all it take more then 4 hour to charge from USB, Processor is so low speed, Even the most poplar games Angry Bird you cannot run properly and the screen will jerk while playing.

    Last and the best they won’t provide you HeadPhone with this phone, so the phone is hell & dont think you will get this phone at 1500 as the company claim you have to pay 150 rupees extra as 10 % tax, so the cost will be 1650 rupees per month and after one year 19800 rupees approx.

    very elegant phone that immediately appeals with its solid,exclusive yet tasteful design . the feature listed seems to be promising in CDMA category.
