Firstly it is very reliable according to me. There's is a small chance of a manufacturing defect. Every phone has it. My HTC had it too.

Secondly the phone is no longer available on Flipkart.

That could be an issue with any phone. But most phones don't have any defect. Mine didn't have. Also I talked to the customer care guy and he told me that in case of any problem Flipkart would replace it or the service center guys would fix it without any extra charge.
Yea, maybe in a month or so it'll be available again.

Great Hardware.
I am using one from last two weeks and i can say hardware is greeeeat. From hardware prospective only downside is limited internal storage.
Flipcart is very safe if you buy anything from WSRetail.

However when it comes to software I really did not like MIUI (can also say hate it) . It is heavily customized fork of Andriod and not in a good way. It's stable releases are also full of bugs and useless features. MIUI forum is full of fan boys and their dev team seems like more focused on features than stability, and don't get me started on the UI of V6, which resembles IOS in so many ways
If you are a fan of rooting, Xposed and tweaking you would not like MIUI at all. You can do all this but not in normal easy way. If you are a regular/normal user then it is the device for you.

They stopped it's sale for couple of months now so you need to wait till then.

On a side note, If Varun will not come up with a fully working CM without kernel sources in next few weeks then I might think to sell mine.
