Both of these handsets were the good enough to compete against the leading smart phones available at that time which included the handsets like Grand, Grand 2, S3 mini, note 3, Xolo Q3000, etc. The best part of these handsets were that they were available in the reasonable range and hence were the first priority of the users. But now since the company has discontinued their manufacturing, we can at least expect something better which will replace these handsets. Initially the company first decided to significantly drop the prices of these handsets so as to take the advantage of festive season.

The phone might have been discontinued due to arrival of the CyanogenMod based phone which is subjected to be launched by Micromax soon.
