[UPDATE: I will NOT be buying this phone nor be registering/entering any personal information on their website and I would encourage you to do the same. After analyzing their website, I found that it is completely unsecure and lacks basic security. I also wrote an article on why you should not order this phone, you can find it here.]

My Personal Impression so far:
- I find it skeptical that the mobile phone manufacturer “Ringing Bells Private Ltd” does not yet have a proper Wikipedia page nor a proper website. You can find the manufacturer wiki link here and freedom 251 wiki page here.
- No mention of SAR Value (which is the amount of radiation the phone emits) mentioned anywhere in their website.
- As it an unheard company, some may find that there is no option of cash on delivery.
- The website lacks basic security and I would personally stay away from them.
- Not sure about the quality of customer service yet.
- Best value for money phone.
The way I see it, if you need a ultra budget phone for about Rs. 500 (and expect to dispose it when it stops working as I am not sure about their customer service), you can go for it.
So, are you going to order the Freedom 251? Do, Leave a comment in the comments section below, I would love to hear from you.
