@Rajni Jain • 16 Aug, 2014 I was happy when I started reading the phone specs that something is available in near 12K with amazing Octa Core processor.

As I read it further, my disappointment increased to see battery capacity -1200 mAh . That is not justifiable. The phone would have been a average buy if they would have increased the battery by double with a couple more thousand added to price tag.

However currently it is a BIG NO from me.
@Kedar Malwadkar • 18 Aug, 2014 Correction* - Actually the battery capacity is 2000mAh.
