    400 $ for a Mediatek phone with only 2300mah battery? Somebody forgot to turn on their brain before producing this phone.

    More for style and show, a power hungery octacore..driving a FHD 5.5 INCH display..powered by a measely tiny battery..just shows up companies like Micromax to being run by some Moronic heads, who do not even catch major booboos like this and push models on models of mobiles into market.
