  1. hello sir,
    i have chose micromax ntro after spending osme time regarding my new handset,obviously its a bunch of spec’s,but as per market review the after sales service of micromax is quite poor,
    so kindly tell me a handset under 15k,
    & with octa core processor 2gb ram is necessory?
    kindly suggest me a best option to go with,
    i have seen lenovo s850=14k,
    htc 516=12k,
    htc 616-14600,

    1. I read the recent review, the camera underformed with blur edges and lots of noise on zooming. Even the phone gets heated up near the camera. Dont have usb otg support. It was ok ok type in low light. Go with gionee elief e7. The camera and performance is much much better than micromax knight. Even the headphone quality is cheap in Micromax knight also they didnt provide a flip cover nor it is available in market. U dont even get gorrila glass protection on the front & camera protection on the back in Micromax KNIGHT. But these all features are available in GIONEE E7. Also the after sales service of Gionee is much better than Micromax. Even u get NFC, wireless charging etc in gionee. Gionee performed excellent in low light also. Go with Gionee E7 rather wasting money on Micromax Knight

  2. almost the same look octa-core 5 inch 720 p display device with 2gb ram is available in china with the name ele phone water p9 for just USD $225 around INR 13.7k.

  3. hello sir.just for sake of knowledge I want to ask which combination is fine??Quad core with 2 GB ram (like note 2) or octa core with 1 GB ram (like Lenovo S939..) ?please explain regarding gaming and battery drain..

    1. 1GB is good 2GB is better, with 2GB you can multi task better. If your usage is basic – phone, chat, browsing, some game.. then it will hardly matter but if you are the kind who loves to try out new apps and will be loading too many apps then 2GB RAM will keep you happy.

      1. First of all HAPPY HOLY to u and ur followeres…Thanks for ur words regarding my doubt..but still cnfusion..if ram is tha bace of multitasking in any phone then whats the use of cores ??as per ur statement we should avoid quad/octa core and just focus on much RAM ??

        1. Rakesh, RAM is temp storage of data and moving data from device to cpu / gpu. The more the core the faster the work load will be completed.

  4. if ram as mentioned above is 1gb then it will nothing attract to anyone. In fact canvas knight is much better. What u say Gogi ji!!!™

    1. Yes even intex octa core comes with 2GB RAM, it will be pricing that we need to see. Kight is with a more powerful chipset (Turbo).

        1. I know :-), no idea what will be next, may be they will try combining octa + quad or octa + octa.

          1. Gogi ji, MediaTek already announces it’s next flagship chipset MT6752 and MT6732 (last month). The MT6752 is a 64bit based 2.00-2.3GHz Octa Core SOC with Mali-T760 GPU. It can record and play 4k videos easily has Miravision technology (for fast video playback), has LTE support & many more…..

      1. Lenovo with 1GB RAM+ 8MP camera = 22K+
        Intex aqua octa with 2GB RAM+ 13MP snapper = 19990 (more cheaper in retail stores)

        Lenevo ko kaun lega fir??!!

    1. A cheaper Octa core and even more cheaper qaud core.. dual core.. etc, when something new comes up.

  5. Lenovo as a Brand have not been able to create any hype in the market, because of their pricing strategy, No one is interested in the overpriced stuff, so if they really want to capture market they will have to seriously look into their strategy.
