Connectivity and Battery
First i ordered this mobile from snapdeal.com they promised me they will deliver in 2 days but usual business tricks at end of the day they called me and told 7 business days so i cancelled the order.nnFlipkart attracted me for extra 10% discount if i use my HDFC Credit card. I ordered this mobile on 26th Dec with one day guarantee delivery with order no OD31226031584 they delievered next day evening i was very happy to receive but after that i got shocked. The aluminium case was having some gap with the back side plastic finishing also the lock button was not working and the camera button is too hard. When i just capture a photo the phone heated like anything.nnI called the customer care and blasted so they arranged for pickup and promised me they deliever new mobile this time.nnI believed and collected my new mobile on 28th of December i opened the package and saw the mobile was not having the previous defects but i suspect the phone was used by somebody else. After few hours usage i found the touch panel gorilla glass was broken at the corner and could see it. Also the Sim cover is broken.nnI really felt bad for ordering this phone from flipkart delivering defective products from WS retails now they put this as OUT OF STOCK. They trying to cheat customer by sending the defective products. Also i am surprised to see how a FLIPKART app is pre-installed in Micorsoft Software :(nnI will never ever never ever never ever order any such good from online its better to go to nearest store and get trusted products.nnjust for seeking 2K profit i lost my time and felt bad not to buy smartphones at all..nnThis is very worst experience sending defective product 2nd time. I asked for refund and thank god it got credited in my account.

Just cause they have lower specs than Android does not make it slower. n*Not all the apps are paid, even if the one you want is paid it probably has a trial version which is the full version but with adverts.

This limitation is only with Music files.
