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.
Purchased from flip card and using from couple of days. I am techie guy so used in all manner and found as per the prize range it has best quality. If you have budget around13-14k i will suggest you to go with this. nnNOTE: Those who are complaining that it takes too much time to get charge it's due to charging adapter. That is not mobile or battery problem. Videocon is giving a poor adapter in box so for get fast charging use any charger with output 5v/10v with 2A. Your mobile get charge in 1hr only.nnPros:nLook is awesome, StunningnDisplay is very much good, even more batter than Canvas HD. Amezing if you watch HD movies.n3G is much faster because it support 4G band(21 mbps), not available in other mobiles within prize rangenBattery is very good, With 3g and normal use i tested and worked 13 hrs.nMusic is not so great, Rear Camera is fine as it is a mobile camera But for video call front camera quality is good enoughnProcessing speed is cool, Flawless we can play HD gamesnBox inbuilt accessories is good enough to care mobile (Screen guard Pouch)nnCons nLatest in market so not much accessories are availablenAt the time of calling another sim would remains inactive(switch off/out of network)
FINAL REVIEW after 4 months of usage -nnThe phone doesn't hang, performance is flawless. nnNegative points- n1. The video camera doesn't auto focus, it keeps re-adjusting the subject and blurs far too often. Essentially, it's a waste. You can't take any videos with this camera. n2. The overall camera quality is extremely bad. It works well in daylight but don't expect anything even remotely good with normal lighting in a room.nUPDATE - The camera is useless. Can't take any videos. The focus is extremely poor. And for this alone I would suggest better phones.nnPros - Big screen, HD, doesn't hang whatsoever, runs all the heavy apps and the interface is smooth, as expected. Does what most reviewers here and online have told.nnCons- The camera is bad, very very bad. Micromax cameras are much better. The flash is almost non-existent. The flash only serves as a torchlight and cannot be used for clicking pictures in the dark. (I wish I knew this before) nnThe phone doesn't have much contrast and is rather dull and I'm hoping there are third party apps to increase the contrast (still searching)nnEverything else is pretty standard. Battery looks fine till now. nnBattery's good. The screen is fine. Customer service, ughhh, appalling. That's that then.
I've used this for about a week now. nnThe biggest plus point compared to Canvas HD (besides the price) is that the display is more vivid. The phone looks classy, like the Google Nexus. Many people are surprised when they hear it's Videocon.nnIn terms of performance, things are great. Battery life on Internet use is about 3-4 hours. Normal usage means battery will last for 1 to 1.5 days (24 to 36 hours.)
