This is the best smartphone at this cost. Value for money and a reliable brand also. This smartphone is compatible with cdma or gsm sim. It is single sim handset. Amazone india always fails to provide full specification. On their site when i saw specification about this model, it is hard to guess this smartphone is single or dual sim? it is 3G compatible or evdo RevA/RevB? ZTE had chosen wrong marketing partner to Amazon for India.

I think it supports evdo rev b because it is offering reliance pro offer too which is evdo rev b services of reliance.


Ugh, There is no xiaomi mi3 to compete! Sales are permanently discontinued. There is no competition for this device, However battery capacity may be deal breaker for many buyers!
