Overall: Its a black beauty. Having used it for around 5 hours, I am giving my perceptions:
Overall a great product. I would recommend it..
- Best thing I liked is the crisp screen and GPS.. Although not mentioned, it looks like IPS display and not LCD. Viewing angles are good. Colours are vibrant.
- Touch is quite responsive. Feels like gliding on velvet and not on glass. But sometimes does not recognize touches.
- Processing speed is fluid and waiting for your input
- The handset itself is feather like, but becomes heavy with 1.9 ah battery, but does not really pull your pockets down.
- Battery lingers when no usage at same percent.. but drops on heavy usage (not unexpected).
- 5mp auto focus works well.. even at night.. the selfie is not great, but not bad for a 0.3mp.
- GPS is good. At first I thought its just A-GPS, but it really has a GPS chip. It caught a fix even with two floors above me, something I never experienced before with other phones. I roamed around a bit, I can see second by second update.
- Comes with screen guard and a good flip cover, but phone looks good either way, better without the flip cover.
- Call quality is good. As good as with my Samsung.
- Tried Subway surfers, and other games.. Great colours and response.
- Haven't tried Videos, but assume should be good also (am not a movie watcher).
- Processing speed is quite good.
- Android has more features and settings, but this phone is faster I think. I have another quad core 1GB android based tab (Lenovo A7-30). But then, this is my first Windows phone.
- Slightly gets heated on heavy usage (could be my imagination), but does not burn your pocket (really :-))
Of course, it does not have Gorilla glass and glossy finish, but can't expect for this price.
I was eyeing the Lumia 530 before this, which is only a few hundred rupees more, and micromax 121, but I bought it soon after I saw this. I am giving below the differences below:
Lumia has 512mb ram, this has 1gb
Lumia has fixed focus camera, this has auto focus
Lumia has no LED flash
Lumia has no front camera
Lumia has more pre-installed software, this has less.
Lumia has 4GB rom, this has 8GB
Lumia has 1.4ah battery, this has 1.9ah
Lumia is probably less heavier, but bulkier in dimensions
Micromax 121 has almost same features as this, but has a 5in screen.
If there is anything more I will come back after prolonged usage.
