First Look: MTS MTag 352 smartphone

New Delhi, Aug 26: MTS earlier this week announced three new Android based smartphones including the MTag 352 which is priced at Rs 6,499. A GSM phone with similar specification even from Indian brands is priced much higher.

While there are compromises made with this phone like no front camera, no proximity sensor (which shuts of the screen when phone is placed near the ear for calls), the phone still comes out as a feature rich option. Add to that some very good bundling by MTS in terms of free voice and data for three months and it comes across as a good bargain deal.

Those who are worried that MTS will not be able to continue its operations in India as its license has been canceled by the court, they need not fear as MTS has announced its plans to stay in India.

The phone is manufactured by ZTE, a Chinese vendor which is world's fourth largest smartphone vendor, according to IDC. It features a 3.5 inch screen, 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor, 3 megapixel camera and 1400 mAH battery.

Here is what we feel about the phone. Though it is only a first look so a definitive verdict will come only by next week when we have used the device for some time.
