    Overall: Nice cell phone with some good features + nice cameras . However , i doubt if it'll become popular due to :nn1) Sim trays . These have been positioned like ear-holes of the cell phone - one tray on each side . You can not remove tray from cell without the tray-key (stove-pin type pin , to insert into tray to take it out from cell) . You'll need to carry this key whenever u need to load/remove sim card into/from tray .nn2) Memory card is to be placed in one sim tray only ! This means if u want to use memory card , u'll hv to remove one sim & place memory card there . This means if u're using memory card , ur cell will act as single sim cell .nn3) Not sure about this one but read somewhere that 1 GB RAM is small to run 8 cores smoothly . One needs to hv atleast 1.5 GB RAM . I'm quite unsure , people pls. check this .nnI think Micromax needs to redesign this model correcting above probs & relaunch it in market .

    Overall: A big drawback is we cannot use two sims when sd card is plugged in .....why is micromax keeping these kind of drawbacks for a good hardware mobile like cameo runnig octa core and good GPU..............i think these are company tricks of not giving all the features in one mobile so that other micromax models can also survive in the market.............
