  2. Hi Mr Gogi

    Can this camera be not used as phone because I have seen in GSMarena site that the camera displaying talktime 4 hours and 30 min. So why a big site like GSMARENA showing talk time if this camera is not for calling.

    1. Its the usage time, Talk time does not necessary mean you are voice chatting, it is using the device continuously. The camera does have 3G, Wi-Fi Support, and even access to google play. This means you can also chat, surf and download many apps including skype. But don’t think skype can be used for video chat cause there is no camera on the side where the touchscreen is.

  3. Dear Gogi Sir, how is your micromax a110 going on..? I want to know about the battery life of the phone and some cons of the phone. please reply me as I am going to purchase a mobile under 15k so m thinking why to waste money on such phones which gives equal or less performance as compare to micromax a110
    If you can tell me better branded phone till 15k then it will be my pleasure to get suggestion from you.

    1. Akshay, doing well. I occasionally play the MC3 game. Battery life is excellent I get just over 1 day and 23 hours almost 2 days.
