    The 3.2" LCD screen has pixel dimensions of 320x480. The display is reasonably bright, and the sharpness is good too. On the flip side, the panel's viewing angles and sunlight legibility don't quite make the mark. The phone is powered by a modest 800 MHz CPU, and it has 512 MB of RAM. Here are the... Read more

When Android first started out, the cheaper variants were nothing but horrid and you wouldn’t want to go anywhere near a handset that was priced under 10K. That’s... Read more

The battery life is decent, but since it is a Dual SIM phone talk time is less than the... Read more
