Wow! At the beginning of the event I was struck at the fact that Micromax has done a really good job with this phone and will make it’s comeback soon and help in the Make In India process.
But wait, just after hours of the launch event. Experts from the industry came out with the fact that the phone is a rebranded Chinese phone called Qiku 360. Right away I started exploring the internet and yes I found it to be right.
WTF ! Micromax ? Do you think your customers are such a fool ? To believe in whatever you say ? Didn’t you ever think that the truth would be out ? There are companies spending crores of money in the backend for their R&D and then there is you Micromax who claims to have done 6 months of hard-work to just change the logo of the phone?
Everything from the front to back of the phone is the exact copy. Except for the logo.
If you do not know how to make the phone, how will you start supporting its service ?
Do share this guys. And let people know the horrifying truth. 😡
