This is to put on records my appreciation for the valuable service extended by Mr. Shravan. He was knowledgeable and replaced the LCD screen promptly. He is a great ambassador of your brand. Keep up the good job!

Mr. Sanjeet Saha, Kolkata, Smartphone, April 2014

I must bring to your attention regarding the SUPERB service that I received today. From the time I walked in, till the time the parts were replaced and my phone returned - all of it happened in record time. Special call-out for Mohammad, who was proactive in taking the device to the tech facility and fixing it within minutes. As mentioned earlier, Yogesh & Vivek were awesome in their service too. You guys just retained a smiling customer.

Mr. Shomprakash, Rajasthan, Smartphone, December 2015
