      Try restarting your phone and setting it back to factory default settings..and give it some time, the touch on these devices is a little slow and if it still doesnt work, try taking showing it to the service center

    Byond mi-1 tablet’s battery backup is not good.Only 2 hours! Now I am selling it in 1000!!

    I didn’t buy it from flipkart ’cause i was getting it cheaper at Tradus, and i was once again cheated by reviews in flipkart as many of u buy something after reading reviews on them. .
    ABOUT 3D::
    If you are wondering about its 3D feature, that does’t mean something special in this as i was also amazed by this feature. Come on guys buy some 20 bucks cheap 3d glasses in market and download 3D video from Youtube, u can even watch it on laptop or mobile.

    After buying i was very ashamed after showing to my friends
    It looks like some cheap chinese tab with poor plastic even though its good for kids. Come on guys what do u expect from 4k pad. Haha, please invest little bit more.

    Weak wifi catching power,
    Most important feature for me or for anyone who buys this tab. ’cause in the end you will not watch movie or play games all the time. I hv micromax 353G modem so it is useless and after starting hotspot in my mobile i was able to connect this tab but wait!! i can’t even go 5-6 meter away from it before my mobile signal is lost quickly. I was wondering if it was due to my weak mobile hotspot but when i went to my office there also same problem. You have to sit adjacent to the router.

    Beware, as most of games and apps will not work. I am not totally against it.

    Amazed, that you can count how fast battery is draining. 89% tik tik tik tik tik 88% 0.2%/sec. I think byond has given some extra bucks to his employee for writing amazing reviews in flipkart.

    so i give it 2 star. Now i can break someones head with 430 gm tab.
