Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. I primarily rely on phone for emails and calls which are extremely frequent; so such a meagre battery really doesn't cut it for me. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the Salora SM401 with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Salora SM401 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Salora SM401 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 2.2 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage. I can't deal with battery warning just within a couple of hours into my gaming session; the Salora SM401 is quite frustrating in this matter.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Salora SM401 was its 2.2 inches display. The screen size of the Salora SM401 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 1.3 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files.
