    Go with lava iris 402+ (dual core,jb,512mb ram,4gb internal memory,3mp camera+ front cam)at Rs5200 instead of these phones.I got it in Valentine day offer (offline store) I suggest you to wait for special offers from online sites.It’s the best phone in 4.5-5.2k range.If you can extend up to 6k,go with xolo a500s/a600.

    Can’t really believe how Cloud X1+ can be a success! MRP: 2990 seems to be real economic, but seriously, 128MB RAM? Last month, I read an article on XDA stating that the phones which are manufactured from March (or April, can’t remember) 2014, could only be loaded with Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and above… Then how it comes with Gingerbread, I dont know..!! Nut I guess to keep the price down they had sacrifice somethings..
    @Rama: I agree with all your points.. Wonder how 256MB RAM can support Jelly Bean 4.2.2

      *Yeah even I read a similar thing but what I read was as follows

      *See currently Android is highly fragmented with a considerable amount of people still using ginger bread and jelly bean.

      *This fragmentation does not give a uniform android experience to all and is a big headache for App developers.

      *Cuurently if a smartphone manufacturer wants to have Google apps/services on their smartphones they need a GMS(Google Media Services) approval from Google.

      *The GMS approval currently can be applied for any android version at any point of time

      *What Google is rumored to be working on is reducing fragmentation.The method by which they plan on doing so is by restricting the period within which a manufacturer can achieve GMS approval.Google plans on providing the GMS approval only for a period of 9 months after the latest version of Android has released.For example Kitkat released in october 2013,so if any manufacturer wants a GMS approved device running Kitkat they would have to do so within 9 months which means before July 2014(exactly 9 monts from october 2013).On august 2014(10 months from october 2013) a manufacturer cannot Apply for a GMS approval on a device running kitkat because kitkat would at that point be 10 months old.

      *Anyhow this still a rumor and there is no guarantee that Google would implemet it.

    @rudradeep
    *Hey bro dont get me wrong but its best to mention the entire specs of the smartphone or atleast the basic stuffs while making an article.

    *The intex Y11 comes with just 256mb of ram and runs on Android 4.2.2 which is for sure gonna make your experience one of the worst ever.

    *I can safely say that the feature phone would provide users a better user experience than this so called smartphone that comes with 256mb of ram and runs on android 4.2.2.

    *How do you think games will run smoothly with just 256 mb of ram.

    *You have not mentioned all this and are just saying about the dual core processor.

    *You expect me to appreciate a phone just because it has auto-rotation facility.
