It is true that this device is a single-core phone.nBut Micromax just stated on their facebook page that the dual-core version will be out tentatively by "September-end".nnSo I would recommend you guys to wait till the dual-core model is released and NOT buy this single-core one. nnWhy dual-core? Because a ~5" screen could do with more processing power, that's why. The larger the size of the screen of a phone, the more processing power it requires.nnOtherwise, this phone seems fantastic. I'm waiting eagerly for the dual-core model to be released to buy one!
I just had purchased this phablet from local market as it was not available on flipkart, so the thing about this phablet are that likennProsn1) Nice 5 inch 5 multitouch capacitive touchscreen which is very responsive to the touch.nn2) Has dual camera primary camera of 5 MP with LED flash & secondary camera with 0.3 VGA camera, camera quality is good in normal day light but also it has night mode functionality.nn3) Now about the cpu it has 1GHz Qualcomm Scorpion arm7v processor "Single core processor", well its not dual core.nn4)Battery is pretty nice, charged full battery & used it for internet surfing for 1-2 hours, listen to the music for an half an hour, watched an entire movie of 160 minutes on the devices, kept it for complete night on standby mode & still good battery of 80 percent remaning.nn5) calling is good, both the sim works properly, sim 1 is 3g sim & sim2 is an 2G sim.nnn6) speaker is loud & clear, even voice in call is clear & loud.nn7) about the connectivity, realy fast on wifi & 3g even with the stock browser, flash player & videos work fine without showing laging.nn8)Also supports various video formats like mpeg & avi.nnCons nn1) Internal memory is not 4Gb, internal memory available for user is 1.32 Gb.nn2) Even ram is not 512 Mb its 387.5 Mb.nn3)Processor is not a dual cor processor, its an single cor processor.nn4)No dedicated hardware buttons for main menu,home menu,search options, there are touchscreen buttons on the screen which takes almost 72 pixels of the screen.nnThats all about the devices guys, even for prices of rs 10K in India what do we expect, overall nice phablet within this price range with all the smart phone features. Looking for an indian brand i my suggestion go for it OR wait for new upcoming dual sim android from sony xperia tipo & miro, spice stellar 500.nnAll the best & have fun while shopping.

I have been using mobile phones since last decade and a half and have enjoyed various models of several companies and in August end I opted with a lot of enthusiasm to buy Micromax A-100. nWithin a few days I knew I made a wrong choice as I found that the device would hang and shutdown when ever any application for example 'Camera' was run. The phone was neither able to handle the Micro-SD card nor any application and would switch off repeatedly. nNow since 29th September it has gone to sleep for ever and it does not switch on at all.nThe same has been experienced by all who so ever have bought your new models such as A-84 and A-87. nI feel very strongly that Micromax should withdraw these models from the market and honorably refund people's hard earned money ASAP.
