This phone is good in earlier days later it had got most problem like hanging, Lcd Problem Voice disturbance etc and the battery pick up is very excellent the main drawback is repeated complaints. and while opening a facebook app the phone is automatically switch off and the system turn on. operating is also very slow i think this is not a better phone.

Doesn't worth to buy

TheStinson has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

I have this phone for nearly 9-10 months. It has Bada OS. 1.1. There is no version update for it. And the phone is very slow. It frozes for 2-3 seconds when there is a new message. It has an application store. But there isn't good apps on it. UI is not horrible, but it isn't have anything special. It have music recognition and it is very useful.
There is much better phones than this.If you want to have a good phone, don't buy this. It's slow. This is the biggest problem.

Rishabh has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

It's the best phone i've ever had. It has got everything i need except 3g. Display is big enough. The best part is it's touch (like a feather) and battery backup is great.. Looks are very elegant. It's sleek, slim and posses rich looks.. All over m very satisfied with the performance of the phone. In simple words it's "Value for Money" phone..
