    Hi Ranjeet, 2 things I wanna know, 1 can we use higher battery than 1500MAH on this phone to get more backup, as Micromax Canvas 2 uses 2000 MAH. Second, like in your review you mentioned about memory space is 1 GB, so does it have limited space issue for installing apps like I have faced on HTC explorer(if u have happened to use it)?

    Thanx

    Incorrect battery percentage problem any help ranjeet

  • Venky said:

    Hi Ranjith,

    Do you have any feedback about :

    1. Any localized heating when using the phone for say, 15 min?
    2. Incorrect battery level indication ? (Though this is a typical issue with quite a few low cost devices)
    3. Call drop due to device
    4. Visibility of display on a bright /sunny outdoor ?
    5. service and upgrade support ?

    Thanks for a good review.

  • Ranjit (author) said:

    @Venky here are the answers to some of your questions.

    1) I found it normal heating that you even get while using high end phones for 15 mins or so nothing excessive.

    2) I did not face it in this issue in my testing period for about 5 days, but it can crop up as I have seen this common in these local cost phones.

    3) I just used a single SIM and did not face call drop of low signal issue.

    4) I would say just average not very bright

    5) I have no idea about upgrade generally these low cost phone dont get any OTA updates even KArbonn / Micromax till date have not given any OTA updates to their android phones, also service support I only say by these phones if there are service center in your cities.

    Cheers,
    Ranjit

  • DigitizedOnline said:

    Thanks Ranjit for your efforts.

    x- Does phone have USB OTG (On the go) enabled? Some OEM prevent it, though USB 2 and 3 have it.

    y- USB 2 and 3 may have differing functionality in usage as USB OTG. This phone may have USB 2.0. What USB OTG relevant features won’t be available on this phone?

    z- Does it have Indian language fonts like Shruti? Is there any way one can install them via any app?
