Fist of all , i dont understand,,Why many people who dont own the phone or havent used it are writing poor reviews.And as far as cortex a9 and a5 is concerned , just google samsung quattro benchmarks test and u will see, that its performance is certaainly better than phones with a9 cortex, And stop comparing samsung with micromax,karbonn etc, Samsung is bigger brand name with with good sevrice and ofcourse quality prouctss, And those who want to buy micromax or karboon or some brands , buy it urself, dont post crap reveiws and make negative reviews about other products.Also those concerned with adreno 203 gpu,yes i agree its not that great , but it performs adequately ,and regarding tft displays, many phones priced higher than this phones dont have that display. It is a quality phone with good cost to performance ratio.
People!!! Before reading my review, Ask yourself this Question : n"What are the features & specifications that you are looking in a Smart Phone that costs Rs 16.5K?"nNow, Note down all those as points with check boxes in the order of their priority.nnAnd now, read my review :-nI got this for my younger brother for his birthday. It got delivered to us 11 days back and to be honest, the smile on his face(he is 23), when he flaunts and shows this new gadget to his friends, tells me he is truly happy and more than satisfied.nAnd why won't he be, he is getting the awesome specifications and features of the "High-end" devices for half the price (that too, he didn't have to pay).nFor a "mid-range" price of Rs 16.5K, this phone offers (reviews form my brother) :-n > A 4.7 inches (Big) screenn > 480x800 pix WVGA TFT display (which is quite awesome and crystal clear)n > A 1.2 GHz "QUAD Core" processor (better than most phones in its range)n > A 1 GB RAM (again better than most phones in its range)n > An 8 GB internal memory ((again better than most phones in its range)n > With a 16 GB Free Micro SD card (Offer on Flipkart)n > A 5 MPxl cam and 0.3 Mpxl front cam (he says is enough for him)n > It records Videos in HD (720x1280) at 15 fpsn > A 2000 mAh Battery that easily lasts more than a day. n (One day as of now cos of heavy "Exploring" usage :P)n > Its a Dual Sim phone!!!n (now he has less to worry about his multiple Gi..*ahmm* Contacts)n > The stock earphones are great. (he is a music buff)n > Great Build Qualityn > Comes with the Brand "SAMSUNG" (this DOES matter)n > Is considered a smaller version of Galaxy Grand but to be honest, n "It looks and feels Better, Sleeker & Trendier than Grand"n > Runs Android Jelly Bean. Haven't experienced any kind of lag.nThe Only turn-off I could find about this phone till date is that it lacks accessory support.nThere are no Cases or Covers for this phone available (anywhere) "Till Now".nBut that's something which pretty soon will start showing up in the market and on the web. (somebody has got to be working on it) Given that this is a very fresh model.nnNow, that you have read it all, put a tick mark on those features you wrote down in the beginning, that this device is offering and see for yourself if you should be ordering this or not. (^_^)
No Amoled display? No IPS Display? ony tft screen :P Lg Optimus L9 p765 17k or Xolo q800 12k and u will get Lava iris 501 same specs and price 8k. But in my opinion Lg Optimus L9 p765 best. U should compare this phone with Lg Optimus p765. Check the review of this phone. Samsung come with Ips display or amoled display @17k.
This phone looks Good but the the Hardware and the screen quality is really outdated and the Video recording at 15 fps seriously? This phone is just made to give a challenge with the micromax canvas series..! nmy advice do not buy it it litreally has way outdated Screen and hardware..!
For those who are criticizing its display,I know its TFT but i don't see any problem with it,the resolution is ~199ppi,its actually samsung galaxy grand's screen squeezed into a smaller frame so its more sharper than grand,not being AMOLED or IPS display actually compliments its battery life.. nnSo please check out its display in person before writing your crap over here..nnBiggest pro of this phone is battery, it easily lasts a whole day. 1 Gb ram also helps you through productive multitasking. Dedicated Graphics gives a decent gaming experience which is further complimented by the screen size. Sophisticated games like nova 3 runs smoothly without lag by bringing down the details a little bit, nnIt's true that its hardware is not the latest but its performance surely is, compare it with any smartphone in this range and it will lead, below are the benchmark scores.nnnBENCHMARK SCORES OF QUATTROnQuadrant Standard - 4385nNenaMark2 - 42.8nAnTuTu Benchmark - 10910 (4 stars)nMulti Touch points - 5nnNOTE- It scores higher than SONY XPERIA L(18990 bucks) in two of these three benchmarks.nnDual sim option, Quad core processor, JELLY BEAN 4.1.2, 1GB RAM, Dedicated graphics chip and 2000mAh battery makes it a complete package..nnFront camera is the only con i found abt this phone, But people who don't video chat often like me won't even notice it..nnSo all those who are confused, they should definitely check out this phone in person,It might be everything you are looking for at this point of time..
