I got this phone for my dad, and after seeing it in use for a week, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by it. The build quality is excellent - the kind I would have expected from my usual HTCs. The glass in front, the metal-build on the sides and the tight faux-leather finish give it a very premium look and feel, much like the Samsung Note 2, and no exaggeration there! Call quality is good, cameras are decent both on the front and back (no HD video recording though - just a measly 854x480), and viewing angles are very good. In the outdoors, the screen isn't the best out there, but it does just fine! In short, it gives you almost all the features of the Moto G at 3k less!! (And yes, it doesn't have a gorilla glass screen, so be careful not to knock it around. As a consolation, I have several friends who've broken their gorilla glass screens on phone sizes 5'' or above. Not to mention that the optics of the best phones get damaged with any number of drops. So bottomline, regardless of any phone, don't drop it!)nnAs for Windows Phone 8.1, I find little to blame in it. Each OS has its short-comings - Android many more than others (something most people don't know or refuse to believe) with the viruses, the unnecessary access to personal data for all random apps, and constant lagging, even on the most powerful phones such as the S4 and the HTC One Max. WP is clean and quick. Much neater and the OS never hangs. And I find every single app of my choice available - Adobe Photoshop Express, Adobe Reader, Authenticator, Axis Bank, Cocktail Flow, Dictionary.com. Despicable Me : Minion Rush, Files, HDFC bank, HERE Drive+, HERE Maps, Hungry Shark Evolution, Indian Express, IndiGo, Mixology, Runtastic apps, Skype, State Bank Freedom, Sticky Notes HD., NYT Crossword, Truecaller, Viber, Whatsapp, Wikipedia, and many more. The app gap thing is mostly an over-exaggeration - Android will have almost a 1000 flashlight softwares to WP's say 50, so there is bound to be a difference in number, but most, if not all the useful apps are there. Won't find any trouble on that front.nnThe Snapdragon 200 does disappoint a bit - but then again, coupled with a 1 GB RAM, it pulls through just fine, and what else could one ask for a sub-10k phone! Multi-tasking is quick, and games such as Asphalt 8 : Airborne play without any lag, and at a smooth frame-rate!nnSanjay Kavade wrote in his review certain things which I wish to clear - n1. "According to official Microsoft web Windows 8.1 has folder creation on tiles but you can not create it in W121 though it is Windows 8.1." - That is a feature of WP 8.1 Update 1, which can be gotten for now through a Preview for Developers or will be released in the near future.n2. "You can't play ringtone while you setting it. You have to make a call to see what kind of ringtone you have set." - In the list of ringtones there is a play button in a circle on the left side on the screen, upon touching which you get a preview of the ringtone.n3. "Ringtone volume adjustment is not good. You can not have individual volume control for system volume, Alarm volume, massage volume, phone ring volume" - You have 2 different sets of volume controls - Ringer & Notifications, and Media & Apps. n4. "Internet Data toggle is not available on notification bar. you have always go to setting to turn it on and off." - That is true, although MS promised to remedy that in the upcoming updates. For the time being, one can download Cellular Data by Microsoft Corporation and pin that to the start screen to toggle phone data. nnIn all fairness, this is a brilliant phone! You may lack the Nokia/Microsoft Mobile apps but you get all the rest. Its a great device, and I recommend this to anyone who wishes to spend around 10k for a phone!nnGreat device, and servicing seems promising. No wonder Micromax is as of this financial quarter the leading smartphone seller in India, having overtaken even the giant Samsung!
I have a serious complain about Micromax Canvas Win w121 phone which I bought 4 days ago from Flipkart.nnThis phone is getting heated during charging. The heat is so bad that the phone can't be used for few hours after recharge.nnMy ears have started paining after use and can't afford to continue. This is really hazardous. There are some other issues also with this phone:nn- Battery gets drained out completely in 5-6 Hrs if used for anything.n- Touch screen doesn't respond sometimes.nnThe look and feel of the product is really amazing, no questions around this, but a health concern certainly.nnI contacted Micromax cust care for help, but their technical customer care is worst.nThey are not technically trained on these new type of phones and expect customers to visit service center for everything.nnI have highlighted all these to Flipkart customer care and was promised that a technical team will resolve this asap. Though the committed date and time passed, I haven't received any call from them. I followed up with Flipkart customer care multiple times, but they always refer their technical team to come back with a new date.nnI am highly disappointed with this phone and the Flipkart service.nnI see all these return / refund propaganda claimed by Flipkart is just an eye wash but not real.
