Differentiating Factors

The NFC is mainly used in upcoming mobile e-com technology such that phone can be used or replace credit card (or plastic money) usage till some extent. User just needs to bring the phone in close proximity with NFC trans-receiver and the system is so designed that the payment transaction can take place. This technology is still in growing stage and as per industry veterans; it has got high potential in the coming times.

Generic stuff

The phone comes with 8 GB MicroSD card pre-loaded. Dual LED flash makes taking the pictures in low ambient light smoother and vivid.

Price and Launch date

Company still silent about exact price and launch date but as per the resources the model is going to be launched soon. Pricing wise it looks like that it’s going to be little higher than Incredible S model since both the phone basic stuff is similar.



General observation is that Video is little bit jerky at sometimes. Battery standby and talk time is pretty average in the real field conditions.


The good part is that the phone is DLNA certified so user can share data (contents or media) with any device that is DLNA compliant. Preloaded maps and built in compass lend a hand when if due to some reason, Internet speed is sluggish and one needs to find way!

All in all a nice phone to have which serves business as well as other uses (media, gaming, etc) as well.
