MTS Pulse SmartPhone Review

MTS India (Old name is Sistema Shyam TeleServices Limited) is a telecom service provider in India.Shyam Telecom tied up with a foreign partner Sistema and applied for UASL license in 21 telecom circles of India.In August 2008 Mr A. Raja and other crooks helped them and they became the first new mobile operator to get a pan-india start-up spectrum to start their mobile service operations in the country.The mobile service is based on CDMA and is brand name MTS.

MTS has got a range of smartphones from HTC is MTS Pulse.It is powered by Android 2.1.It is a great combination of style, technology with free calls, data usage and SMSes.The package says phone is free on contract and you pay for the usage only.Hope they dont follow the reliance ambani way.

  • 3.2 inch screen
  • 320 x 480 pixel capacitive touch screen
  • 528 MHz Qualcomm processor
  • 288 MB RAM
  • 5 Mega pixel auto focus camera
  • WIFI
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • micro SD slot (8 GB card supplied, 32 GB supported)
  • Android 2.1 OS
What it Doesnt Do?
  • NO HD video recording
  • RAM is less but enough for a mid range phone (EMailing...?)
  • Battery charge good for a day only.
  • Phone locked with MTS so you cannot change operator.
  • If you break agreement check terms.It would be harsh to the customer.
