Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

The Datawind PocketSurfer5X is really recommended for any user who relates to my idea of having a balance between a large enough easy-to-use keyboard and overall small enough for fit snugly in your pockets. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The phone is very easy to take with you because of its size but I struggle a little while typing due to the keys placed very close to each other. The multi-touch makes it very simple for me to zoom in or out of images and websites. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Datawind PocketSurfer5X sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. I will need to delete or transfer photos every week if I choose this Datawind PocketSurfer5X with its small storage space. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Datawind PocketSurfer5X with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I feel the graphics are so vivid and the text so clear, that I am hooked on to the 5 inch display for my gaming and reading pleasure. I can easily zoom in or out in a game or turn ebook pages using with just a flick of my finger, all because of the multi-touch technology. Gaming is really a turn off on this 1 GHz smartphone; reading is still bearable. An internal RAM this low isn't capable of handling any level of multitasking or gaming. Smartphone storage with such low capacity even for basic apps and programs is really irrelevant. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 5 inches display of the Datawind PocketSurfer5X was the first thing that grabbed my attention. The screen size of the Datawind PocketSurfer5X is pretty cool. The typing can be done with a single hand and slide it back into your denim pockets. Though I don't like to watch movies and videos on smaller smartphone screens, it's not fun. I can make pinching movements with my fingers on the screen of the Datawind PocketSurfer5X to zoom in and zoom out images. I only have to flick my fingers on the screen to rotate images or turn pages of ebook because of the Multi-Touch technology. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 2 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selfies. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. The 0.128 GB internal storage is really very less. If it can't save all my files then what good is it.
