Overall User Rating (4 Out of 5 based on 280 ratings)
Overall: I ordered the phone and it got delivered within 36 hours...Awesome service from Flipkart...Coming to the phone, it is simply the best in its class model from Micromax...It can easily give 10K+ phones from other brands a run for their money...Looks, Display, Touch Sensitivity, Speed all are superb...Camera quality is as per the price tag but we cannot expect a Sony or Samsung like camera quality in a 7K phone...But the snaps are pretty good...Speaker sound is not very high but certainly far better than other Micromax or other brand mobiles in this range...Although battery could have been a tag better but it is sufficient for normal usage of calls, messages, chat, music, video and internet...Easily lasts a day or more...The only minor issue that I found is that the phone gets a bit heated around the body during net surfing or camera usage but its normal to all smart phones...All in all, it is a perfect mobile for an average user!!!
