    Overall: I have been using this phone since 9 days. the design of the phone is excellent. the camera and performance are really disappointing. it says the front cam is 5 MP, but the clarity is as bad as a VGA cam. It is really dark, works only afternoon in the sunlight. the rare cam has the clarity but only in the daylight. nn3rd day onwards, it started getting hanged. unable to receive calls, I get only a black screen when the call comes. nndownloaded a simple game Vector. but unable to play. nnMay be the problem is only with this particular product. thinking that requested for return and re-place it with a new phone of same.

    Pros: Sleek and light weight
    For selfie lovers- excellent camera
    Long stand by and talk time.

    Cons: I don't find any.

    Overall: Its features are really good. But two things I like the most about this phone is sensitive touch and a very reasonable price. I will just say that don't go by the brand name. Even not so popular brands have awesome products, that can give tough competition to popular brands.
