Third class phone with third class specifications. Only 512 MB RAM?.

What about the remaining features?. Camera auto focus?, video resolution of the front and back camera?, bluetooth version?, USB version?, maximum 3G speed supported?, WiFi band supported (b, g, n)?.

Provide enough info.

Suthakar, dont expect galaxy s3 specification in Rs.5k. Even if they give 1gb ram and 7mbps 3g speed in Rs.5k again you comment like ‘1gb ram at 5k?’ . . What a man ya you are . . Ok how much ram you want at 5k? 2gb? Technology will take some time to common man. Wait within one year you will get 1gb ram at 5k.
