Bought this beauty 15 days ago, have used it a lot and I think its time write a review.nLooks and built: It has killing looks, although it's personal to judge on the looks. My friends asked me whether I have iPhone by looking at this phone. So definitely this is a beauty. When I unboxed this phone my first impression was that it is bulky one... But after using it I can definitely say that this is sleek enough to carry. I have used a couple of other phones and surprisingly this is the most comfortable phone to carry and to operate with one hand. Build quality is also decent enough and I am sure that this can handle moderate abuse users will throw at it.nnDisplay and OS: As you can read in the description it has a full HD display. It is impressive one and there is no rough edges, blur spots or the display does go down with certain videos (This problem has been faced with other devices in this range, obviously my friends own these devices). Software is stock android jelly bean and what more can I say. Additionally, as there is no customization layer on stock android it is the smoothest one. Google play is as fantastic as ever.nnCPU and GPU: It has 1.2 Ghz qualcomm quad core processor with 1GB RAM. It has power GPU. What more you want? Unlike nexus 4 there are no limitation on CPU and GPU clocking speed. I am not a heavy gamer but casual games like temple run 2, Manuganu 2 and subway surfer are piece of cake for this device. So I think heavy games also can be played easily on this phne.nnCall quality and music: Call quality is very nice and noise cancellation works like a charm. No call dropping issues or any background noises have not faced, so full marks here. Music is a breeze, again I am not rock star so according to my standards music quality is pretty impressive. I have used couple of latest released phones from reputed companies for music and comparatively there are no compromises for music lovers. Although speaker phone voice is little low but it has great sound quality, I am not going to complain.nnCamera and battery: Camera is of decent quality, although loss of details has been seen for indoor snaps. Video quality is superb. Pics in sufficient light condition are good not great. In short for this price point they are quite good. Battery life though is 1 day only for 1/2 hr game play, 1/2 hr browsing on wi-fi, 1 hr 2G calling and 1-1/2 hr music. Although I am able to extend it up to ~36hrs using an app.nnVerdict: It has all the boxes ticked and this is very impressive deal. With looks it has everything you possibly looking for. It does not have magnetic sensor that is the only thing that is negative about it. So don't expect it to run offline navigation. Apart from that it is highly recommended if you are looking for a good quality phone from a reputed company. Thumbs up for this phone and keep it up videocon.
Had purchased a videocon mobile a 1½ years back. It had manufacturing defect which I reported immediately. The seller refused to replace and asked me to visit Videocon Service Centre. It was hell, people at their service centre are not qualified, they even do not have manners to talk to customers. The phone was returned after couple of days and to my surprise it had the same problem. Its Touch Screen was not working. Reported again to Service Centre, they kept the phone again for couple of days and returned with same problem, Again third time I approached Service Centre, this time they kept my handset for much longer and to my surprise again the phone was returned with same problem.nnAfter I contacted Videocon and narrated the whole thing, THEY DID NOTHING. When I informed them that I am moving to Consumer Court with this matter, they reverted back just before few days left for the warranty i.e. almost a year. I was relaxed at-least they replied, They offered me to replace my handset with another repaired handset. But it was their game..... The set was replaced but it was shocking to see the replaced set again stop working... It did display nothing on the screen except White Screen.nnIf you are planning to buy any Videocon product, DO NOT PURCHASE.... Instead try another brands like Samsung, HTC, Sony or any other company you like. And if you go for Videocon, you are surely going to face lot of problems....nnVideocon is a failure in Mobile Industry.
