Overall: I have bought this phone from Flipkart and as usual, Flipkart is known for their amazing delivery. I got this product within 1 day (1 day free delivery). Thank you for that Flipkart.
Coming to this product: I was using another Basic Handset from Micromax: X263 which costs around 1731 (approx.) and currently doesnt seem to be available in any online stores. That handset has a marathon battery and thats why I bought it with limited features 2 years ago.
I expected a similar battery power since this has a 1900 capacity battery which is more than x263. But X251 disappointed very badly. I had fully charged the phone only on Friday evening and within 2 days, that is by Monday afternoon, this drained. If you ask me, I didnt do much other than calling and receving calls. After all, there are not many features on this phone. Call quality and Music are loud, annoyingly loud I would say. One of the best basic handsets I have ever used is Micromax X263, the only drawback was that it had only one color: coffee champagne.
The above product does NOT have a good camera, it doesnt have a phonebook import/export and shockingly no "Scheduling Task", all of which were available in X263 and Im guessing other Micromax phones.
Personal Opinion: Micromax started its business concentrating on basic handsets and now it has grown so big that it is concentrating on high end phones. Some of the best phones are available within 20k. So there are better phones available but I guess this one may not be a worth buying product.
