Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Aside from adept and advanced call management, I'd also like my smartphone to manage to Pushmail (Mail for Exchange) and much more, just like the Videocon A27i. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real struggle 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 bids 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. I more than often opt 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. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really tiny and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Videocon A27i is. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Videocon A27i other excellent possesses and fairly makes up. I will occasion to delete or transfer photos everyday if I choose this Videocon A27i with its small storage space. The extendable memory of the Videocon A27i is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones with high internal memory that further comes with highly confusing possesses.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 4 inch display is quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. Reading is still fine, but gaming on a 1 GHz smartphone is really dreadful. An internal RAM this low isn't accomplished in handling any level of multitasking or gaming. I dunno what good is storage which is insufficient even for regular apps and programs. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps. I are able to at the least have a cool graphic session of 3-4 hours without the battery warning; although after 4 hours I do have to seek charging.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4 inches display of the Videocon A27i was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 5 MP camera resolution. If there are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution, then you should go for it. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think image be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selifes. 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 have the flexibility to now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is particularly pleasing help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. I don't worry charging when I are able to charge my phone with the laptop; I are able to even transfer files with this. The 4 GB is really very less. If it can't save all my files then what good is it.
