did not meet the expectation
19 May 2015 By Siju Jose On flipkart.com

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.

Happy with Hornbill
13 Jul 2016 By Pooja Sharma On 91mobiles.com

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.
