We checked the Croma store for these products and found the 4.63 version in store. Quality-wise we felt that the phone was not up to the mark. Even the hardware used is not really exciting and there are many handsets in the market - Lava Iris 502, Byond B65 and many more from players like Xolo, Spice, Intex, Karbonn and Micromax - which come with 4.5 inch qHD displays and with much better quality and specifications.
