Worst phone ever Please never buy Looses our money over automatic sms.
15 Sep 2013 By Dony George On flipkart.com

The phone automatically sends many sms daily to karbonn servers causing us money loss and karbonn earning from that. I lost so much money in 2 weeks. I request Flipkart to refund my money in return for the device. Device performance is okay The screen is not so good and so is the camera. The touch screen is not so responsive to touch. Dont expect to do heavy gaming. Battery drains when used in dual sim mode and using internet over 3g.nBuy this phone only if you are in a tight budget and ready to loose money via sms every day.
