Videocon is offering this device as a fully-loaded HD smartphone to its valuable customers at such a lower part of the mid-range handsets segment. Since the Indian customers are value-conscious so, this price range makes sense for such a high-end product. As per Mr. Khalid Zamir, Head product Planning & Development of Videocon Phones Division – "The launch of Videocon A55HD heralds a new milestone, as with this device we bring to our customers best-in-class technological innovations, which we are offering at a compelling price." But the problem may be with its OGS touch screen, which lacks any protection like gorilla glass against external impacts.
So, the conclusion is that the A55HD is an affordable high-quality smart device from Videocon, which can be a right-choice for the aspiring Indian customers, who really demand high-end features.
