    I’m not even gonna comment about the whole Ad watching gimmick, even though that is the very USP of this WTF device!

    WTF 1 – WTF am I supposed to do with a quad core CPU (presumably the MT 6589M) if it only comes with 512 MB RAM!

    WTF 2 – WTF am I supposed to do with the “MAd app”, where you need to pay out of your nose for extremely high cost data to watch ads and get peanuts in monetary reimbursement in comparison! I feel bad for the suckers
    who’d fall for it 🙁

    WTF 3 – WTF am I supposed to do with Android 4.2 in 2014 when most phones are already getting their Kit Kat updates or launching with the promise of Kit Kat later on? Even 4-5 thousand Rupee phones will start launching with Kit Kat over the next few weeks and this an eight thousand Rupee device that will as usual never be updated for God’s sakes.
