  1. hi , i got a System software update in my Micromax Canvas Nitro A310 yesterday with Security patches and battery improvements. thanks , Raj


  2. following Oppo’s footstep. instead of offering competitive pricing, they are making customers laugh and run away. slim = premium but with a lousy soc, this only got premium in the looks. only time will tell but from initial looks, this is another failure.


  3. No, Thanks… If I am spending 30k+ on a device.. I might as well spend it on branded devices like Samsung or LG or Sony. The thinnest device on this planet is of no use to me at this price range.
