Yes, and it has an upper hand over Moto E in terms of internal memory. 4 GB internal memory is a disaster waiting to happen. Not all apps can be moved to external memory.

Lumia 520 over Moto E any day.

Default Kudos to Amazon!

Hereís my recent experience with Amazon which was very loyal to the customers when compared to other sites like EBay, Flipkart, Jabong etc.

Two weeks back I made a payment for a HP laptop for 39K from Amazon; the very next day when I saw the price of the same I was shocked. The price has come down to 33.5K By the time the seller had already dispatched the item through DTDC courier which is known for its timely deliveries. Even though itís shipped, I requested for cancellation due to the price difference, Amazon was ready to cancel but they have to get the confirmation from the seller which was duly accepted on the second day of the request. Forth day I got a call from DTDC saying that the LAPTOP is held up with the sales tax department and I have to make the tax of 10K approx. plus the fine to release the consignment. Iíve explained the situation to them and asked them to contact the seller instead of me. Next day I got the confirmation from Amazon that I donít need to worry about the consignment issues which has to be taken care of the seller. Seventh day I got the refund from Amazon and I have ordered the same laptop for 39K but the payment was not successful due to some network issues or so. As per Amazonís policy once the first payment is failed in between they will issue an email to revise the payment and I waited for the email and eventually I forgot this. Next day when I checked the price another surprise, the price has gone up to 41.5K!! But to my dismay, I was not required to make the present price but I only have to make the payment for 33.5K which was the price when I was ordering for the second time. Amazonís another plus feature where we can block the purchase at the booked price for 2 days! The consignment was delivered promptly after 3 days with proper packing through Bluedart where DTDC took sweet 4 days to reach the state check post. Kudos to Amazon for the wonderful service and understanding the situation where your hard earned money is going for a toss which is not yet available with any other sites IIRC

Bought 8 t-shirts from Flipkart and a Western Digital external hard drive from Amazon. Both purchases done on 1st Oct. Delivery date was 8 Oct understandably as 2nd and 3rd were holidays. But got Flipkart package on 4th and Amazon on 5th. These 2 sites have become my Primary buying hubs as they never disappoints with high quality service.

Actually, it's a really good one. One of the few good deals available in Flipkart's sale. The phone is mostly available for over 30k.

Really disappointed with the offers available after the huge hype created by them. Steal deals are all fake IMO, getting customers by putting up out of stock label just like they did with the Redmi 1s.

Aha, no sellers are available for my location - 560076 - BTM 2nd Stage, Bangalore.
So where are they selling this Emergency Light ? In Villages, or Timbaktu ?

And now, a customary emoticon for Flopkart.

Price is still 12999 and the offer of 8999 is only against exchange!

I used to call it Stinking heap of steaming doggy dung. And that was even before they locked out my mobile number so that I could no longer use the account I had been using for years (and with one or two trips a year, obviously not being an illicit agent) and gave me no decent support at all.

I am also getting this for quite a few items --- in sub-urban Chennai. Maybe some sellers only service addresses within walking distance

Looks like their hype did them in. They got huge traffic but seemed unprepared to tackle it.

I too ordered something, a Nexus 7 2013 32GB tab for 14.5k, but haven't yet got a confirmation or a order number. And when I called up my credit card company to check if they've transferred money to the merchant, support staffer was already aware of this mess and told that several others are facing same problem. Although amount has been transferred, I too do not expect order to be placed. Just hope they refund without any fuss.

What did they do with the Redmi 1S? It was available all morning very easily. Has gone out of stock now it seems.

Looks like a sale without anything in stock or deliverable at your location
