Overall: I use this phone though I didn't buy it from Flipkart.
1. A very decent and pretty looking basic phone, aimed for those who just want to talk and message. Although the screen is small, the resolution is good.
2. The FM radio works just fine and the audio quality through the headset is amazingly crisp and clear, even at high volumes.
3. The torch lets you find your way in the dark, very bright.
4. Keypad is responsive in real time, i.e. you can type very fast texts without having to wait for the phone to cope up with your speed.
5. Very useful feature is that if you enter a phone number it searches your contacts and shows those contacts that match the entered numbers, all happens automatically.
6. Mobile tracker 2.0 installed. SOS message functionality is included.
7. Very good battery backup.
1. The SMS memory is 500 messages, that is a bit low (according to me as I text a lot). Frequent deletion of old messages might be necessary.
2. An option is there to blacklist any phone number if you want but that option is hidden deep in settings. Finding it can be a bit tough.
3. No option for setting reminders.
4. The back cover is not that tight (though not a problem if you don't misuse it)
My verdict: If you want a good essential phone that will serve the purpose of having a phone well, just go for it.
