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.

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!

Could have produced a serious competition only if the battery was 3000+.. with a lesser 2500 mAh battery to power the snapdragon 800 and 5.5 full HD screen isn’t serious competition I guesss.. 😉
