    Mmx Iz A Really good company for Indian consumers. I always thought all these smart phones frm Sony, samsung could be a bit affordable if not cheap……

    Samsung duos? what is there in it for 15 k? Mmx A68 way better than that for 7 k

    Mmx are goin to kick these Foreign ppl out of the Indian market if they do some improvement in Service department.

    I would rather go for Wammy Titan for just 13299/-…It is dual core with jellybean and QHD display…that seems more handsome to me…And i also doubt service MMX is goin to provide as i have had horrible experience with A100 and CS team
