  1. For that price – working on the premise that they’re trying to get those lower on the economic ladder to buy – I wonder how durable it is and how long it will last?

    And exactly how much of the phone is the Indian government subsidising? I’m waiting to see when the first grey import will appear.

  2. Seems the whole thing is a scam based on recent developments,somebody’s trying to swindle unsuspecting customers and for cheap publicity,there’s no Indian government subsidy,a review unit was found to be another OEM’s device with the logo covered up..#Phonearena
