    Overall: Hi All,nnIn spite of these many re views , i will try my best to clear some doubts regarding this device.nThis is just AWESOME . I am using it from past 4 days and here is my review.nn1) Battery Lifen-- AS some users reported that it has poor batter back up, but for me it is not.nInitially 45% will be available at first boot, i charged it to 100% and it gave me wonderfull back up.nTotal Screen Time -- 5 hoursnWIFI time -- 2.5 HoursnCALL time -- approx 1.5 hoursnGaming Time -- 21 minutes.nBrightness lower than mediumnnAfter 24 hours , it still had 42%. Now you can judge by yourself about battery life.nn2) SCREENn-- Scree quality is just ok ok.. But hey yo cannot expect 1080 at thi price.nin outdoors it works as mirror, u have to cover it fully then only u can see the screen .nn3) Memory Cardn-- You should by class 6 or class 10 memory card for better performance, games will take time to load if you use the MC provided by micromax.nn4) Touch is just awesome just like MOTO G (2nd gen).nNO lags at all.nn5) LED Notification Availablenn6) Charges is of cheap quality, you shuld be careful while taking it around.nn7) Build quality is just awesome. :)nn8) Camera n-- In 6.5 K . you can not expect more but still it is good even i have never expect that fornt camera willl be this much good.nnI have not faced heating problem yet as others, i used wifi continuously for 1.3 hours including downloading of lot ot apps.nnIntially i was about 98% close to buy ASUS Zenfone 5 because i have to use mobile max to max 8 months.nBut after all that review of poot battery about ASUS , i just dropped it. Even ASUS also have prole with kitkat updatenEven kitkat update for asus is 4.4.2 but for this it is 4.4.4 and upgrade to Android L, Which is very big plus point.nnVerdict -- Just go for it, even if ur budget is around 10K just go for it, u dnt have to spend 10k fully.nnHope my review will be helpful for someone.

    Overall: It's handy 4.5 inch IPS display display, but sad with low display resolution (expected HD display)nnThe device specifications are Good, Better Performance and Pure Android experience. Device runs 1.3GHz Mediatek Quad Processor with Mali 400MP2 GPU and 1GB Ram along KitKat OS. Guaranteed latest OS upgrade from Google till Aug 2016.nDevice supports 2 Micro Sim. nCamera clarity is better than Other two Android one devices.nnCons:n- Low 1700mAh Battery; Needed at least 2000mAh battery for long lasting usage (cross finger lollipop update sort out battery issue).n- Low display resolutionn- Can't install apps to external SD card (coming lollipop developed to adopt Apps to Sd card).n- No OTG support.nnIt's better One to select than Other two Android Devices.nnKindly click Helpful, if you agree. And So that Customers be-aware before Buying. And also Google notice and Improve, where it should need development.
