Overall: I took a chance in buying this product although no reviews were available for this phablet. I looked at reviews of other Byond products esp. their tablets and found them to be doing pretty well. So hoping that this Byond product wouldn't be too off the mark I ordered for couple of them. But it seems people are lapping up the nice good low cost android stuff pretty fast - and so I got only one delivered after a week. Before Flipkart could lay hands on another one for me it went out of stock. Well good.. coz it will give me time to figure out if I want another one of this in my house (for my wife - coz this may not be for women for reasons below).nnMoving on to the phablet per se.. its nice (not little) package. The screen is six inches across and at 230gms its a bit heavy. So you need large hands and be ready for some workout - ladies with delicate hands - please watch out... this may not be for you. nnPros: Overall I found this one to be working great so far - 1Ghz processor, 2.5 GB memory (its says 4 GB but only 2.5 is usable), battery life (only 60% drained after a full day of Wifi/3G, browsing, gaming, talking on loudspeaker etc.) , good screen resolution, all apps playing well, 8MP camera. nnCons: I noticed this one hanging on using multiple apps together but I guess its a RAM thing since this went away after I stopped using the dynamic wall paper. nnOne of the biggest probs I have had with low cost androids is their usable memory and bloatware, only solution for which is to root it. But this one did not have much bloatware and they were not locked in the internal memory. So I could transfer most of the pre-loaded stuff to SD card. Also, many other apps which would lock onto internal memory in my previous phones, easily transferred to SD card in this one. What a relief that was!nnSo.. so far so good. Will post a 1 month review later on!nnnAdding to my review above after 8 months in September, 2013:nnThis phone's still working well. No issues at all. However, it doesn't work smoothly if you make it travel internationally. I took it to UK for sometime and it went crazy - unexplained boot ups, dismounting memory card all the time etc. But it became normal after I brought it back to India. No issues with calls, all apps work great, camera is pretty good, no hang ups or freezes - thats normal. Still get a lot of wows from people for this phone. nn1 con: its charging pin has stopped working recently. Got to get that repaired.
