@Sudhakar: Lolz,where the hell are you hiding now? This is what we call an improvement in smartphone industry(Like OPPO N3 is the first smartphone to have a motorised camera,O’click back panel & Skyline Notification bar 2.0 where we can opt for our desired colour).I am damn sure that with in next 10 years your so called first class companies likewise LG/Samsung,Apple & so on will be facing severe huge loses in under developed/developing markets like our India.That time their service centres will decrease & you will be crying to find a service centre near by your home.
