I had written one review right after buying it. Now writing another after seeing so many criticism in flipkart for this phone. nnAbout prize- Every store is selling it at 14 . I called univercell, Poorvika, Flipkart, SE official showroom etc. Buy whomever gives the lowest. But dont go for the 12000 deal. Because u never know when u will need a warranty. I know a guy who changed his neoV after it got a scratch. They replaced it. nnAbout restart- Mine doesn't do it. those who bought of from ebay are crying restarts mostly. U see SE forum and they say 'i bought this in indonesia and using it in india and it restarts' etc and u know its an ebay mob. And no one who bought in india faces the same issue as far as gsmarena's comment section goes. And if it has an issue, they will replace it. My friend replaced his Xperia Mini and then got cashback and bought LWW. But u got to have warranty to do that(refer the previous point)nnBattery- Yes it goes off in one day under heavy usage. Seriously, tell my an android which doesn't. NeoV on minimal usage goes off in one day and atleast LWW with its heavy usage lasts one day. With an android device, heavy networking and gaming is unavoidable. The reduced screen resolution actually helps in this issue. nnScreen resolution- Are you a tech? Do you have another high end phone with which u r going to compare this every time u uses it? Yes? Then u got a problem. 180 ppi is normal. It doesnt pixelate. And images are bright. And those who cry about ppi, please see low end htc sets. They pixelate and this is way better. And nnLack of BE- Bravia engine is an optimising software. Not hardware. U can root it and all. But trust me. It works fine. nnCamera- I haven't used the cam much. Because i didnt buy this to take pictures. I already have another. But as far as i saw, its normal. and flash is good. nnProcessor- It is the fastest. I have a computer which lags a bit when i am jumping scenes watching a HD(720) movie. But this phone doesn't. I runs smooth. And games too. If anyone points me an android with 1gz processor,512ram and 320internal memory under 15k prize, i will swallow my phone.nnMusic clarity- Awesome. Loud too. And it looks more hip than an ipod. And there is the FB like button for those who want to annoy their buddies. And infinity button which is awesome if u have wifi. or 3g. nnAny other issues?
