I was one of the many consumers, who were eagerly waiting for this phone. But atlast it turned out to be a great disappointment. Why? See below.nnn1. Android Version - While every other manufacturer is striving to release mobiles based on ice cream sandwich, micromax was able to give us only Froyo. What a pity!!nn2. Battery Life - We all know dual core is a battery sucker. How is the 1500 mAh battery going to stand against the hungry processor? We have to wait for reviews, but still it's a big let down.nn3 Price - We all buy Micromax not because of brand loyalty but only for the 'value for money'. I was expecting this to be priced around 13-14k range. But lets wait and see... If the sales are alarmingly low, MicroMax will defenitely reduce the price. nnnThis is an over priced mobile with poor battery and obsolete OS. Sure there are some postive reasons to buy it, but defenitely the negatives overweigh them. nnn- Kichilee
Even I was one of the many consumers, who were eagerly waiting for this phone. And I am so happy that this is finally out...nnI don't agree with my friend Kichilee views, now to answer, Kichilee queries: nn1. Android Version - While every other manufacturer is striving to release mobiles based on ice cream sandwich, micromax was able to give us only Froyo. What a pity!!n--> First of none are out yet with 'icecream' but Yes it would have been great if it was gingerbread but froyo is still good and anyways they will upgrade gingerbread soon. nn2. Battery Life - We all know dual core is a battery sucker. How is the 1500 mAh battery going to stand against the hungry processor? We have to wait for reviews, but still it's a big let down.n--> Well that is where Tegra power comes in. Tegra is low power consumption SoC [sytem-on-chip - that has all chips on it] that's why you don't have to worry about power consumption.nn3 Price - We all buy Micromax not because of brand loyalty but only for the 'value for money'. I was expecting this to be priced around 13-14k range. But lets wait and see... If the sales are alarmingly low, MicroMax will defenitely reduce the price. n--> If you compare it with rest available in market you will see this is really at much less than all rest of them. nnThis is an over priced mobile with poor battery and obsolete OS. Sure there are some postive reasons to buy it, but defenitely the negatives overweigh them. n--> No man, it is not. It is the best high end mobile you can get in 18K.nn- Sachinn(let me know if you guys disagree)
Guys you shall realize soon after buying this phone how bad this phone is most of the micromax phone are Chinese re-branded knockoff's and i can say this because i am a embeded engineer myself.nnEven this phone is no exception, It was originally made Beijing Tiyanu and is originally powered by Aliyun Os by alibaba.com it is being marketed a Ktouch 700 in china with cloud operating system and even you can see the 4 capacitive button which invokes cloud.nnFor a tegra 2 device a hdmi port is must in order to use low power GEFORCE gpu on a hdtv the screen is also not that good what will you guys use in order to reap the features of a dual core device with fastest gpu.??nn1500 milli amphs battery would even sustain for an 18 hours when this device will run at a gigahertz(i doubt that as 512 mb RAM will bottle neck).nnAll in all a poor device for the price slab it is placed in spice mi 410 is better in many aspects as its also a gigahertz device and a better OEM Huawei has Designed the device and it it was manufactured in a plant from where our DEll and HP Laptops come from.!nnYep you got it rigt FOXCONN, Spice Mi 410 is the best phone for the price you pay and do you people realize the so called affordable crap that these companies sell are sold for $40-50 in Chinese OEM Market for 1000 devices and sold for 4000-5000 in indian market , just imagine what amount of
Hi Friends, This is one of the best mobile with the feature in the market. Its the most and the best value for money Dual Core Phone. I would not talk a lot about the feature because any one who have little bit of real knowledge of the android features than he will never complain about it. And the only important thing I want to tell all of you is that "AT LEAST LOOK AT THE PRICE WHEN YOU SAY SOMETHING." Ultimately, its the price that WE WILL HAVE TO PAY if we want any of the mobile in our hand. Our words will just do nothing without money. Search the same site (flipkart), and just look at the Dual Core android phones available and you will see that out of total 9 android phones, there are only 9 results available in which only 3 companies Samsung, HTC and LG are there apart from Micromax. There is No Sony Ericsson, No Dell, No Acer, No Spice, No Karbonn, No Motorola, No Huawei and nothing. And then look at the price segment. The lowest of all dual core phone is LG Optimus 2X which is priced at 23450 (25450 - 2000(cashback)). And now compare it with Micromax. The price difference is 23450-18990=4460. Now I think, there no need to complain about anything. Now the scenario MUST BE PRETTY CLEAR in you mind. And still someone cannot see this, than I think it to be blind. Again, those who are complaining about Battery and Android Version, than you need to compare LG Optimus 2X and Micromax Superfone A85, and than you will see that both are having same Android 2.2 and 1500 mAh battery. Here is more comparison Feature LG Micromax Ahead OS Android 2.2 Android 2.2 Same Processor 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A9, Dual Core Same Battery 1500 mAh 1500 mAh Same Memory 6.4 GB 8 GB Micromax Cash 23450 18990 Micromax Camera 8 MP 5 MP LG Pixel Count Less More Micromax Operating Freq Dual Band GSM Quad Band GSM Micromax Video Player More Codec Less Codec LG Gesture Control No Yes Micromax Look at the above spec and than decide. If you dont know about gesture control than you need to look at the igyaan.in micromax hands on video and believe me man :YOU GONNA LOVE IT: And the last thing, keep in mind that this is the initial price of the phone like. As all the phone are launched with the original price and than reduced later, the same way this price is also going to reduce later. Samsung Galaxy S II was launched with 30000 and now its 28500. LG Optimus 2X was 25450 and now its 23450. And if you are regular customer of Flipkart and keep on visiting the site, than you would already know that most of the mobiles price keeps on decreasing on time. Just wait 1 or 2 month and the price will come down. All right, I will have to sign out now coz I dont want to write thesis on this topic. So I think this is more than enough now. With Love, Arun Rathod
This is a very good phone from Micromax and a step ahead from their lower range Android Phones.. -Overpriced?? Certainly not. This is a dual core android phone and is similarly priced to the Lowest dual core phone , optimus 2x. -Crying over 2.2?? 2.3 update is coming this December. And has all the specs required to run 4.0.So we can expect for that to come too.. -No Flash- According to the iGyaan review the exposure settings are really good and can make up for flash at a few places... Anyway even the Galaxy S II does not have flash! But no no cries over that! a very nice cam with intellegent illumination features -1500mAmp battery is decent enough for everyday use.. -The lock screen is also good slightly similar to HTC sense 3.0 -Build quiality is quite good with a metal back cover..(Unlike the full plastic construction of the S II. -Quadrant benchmark - 2076 quite impressive with a few apps and gesture control on.. -Gesture Control- Quite nice especially if you have dirty hand and gotta do something on the phone.. It is really good but Micromax has to slightly work on that for better results... For example- While playing music if you want to pause it just put your hand over the phone and pull it back and same to play it again . Move your hand right to move to the next song and left for the prev song.. -According to iGyaan video quality is at 58.7 Fps which is almost 60.. -Preinstalled Apps are very good although few of them are not that required.. -It has a tegra 2 processor which is used in tablets... - A very loud loudspeaker -Build quality is good certainly better than galaxy s II All Micromax should have done to attract customers considering its brand image is that kept it lower priced by 1k or 2k... PS- I have not personally used this device but I am saying all this according to the iGyaan video..So do not know much about its flaws Just saw all the negative reviews and thought it was quite unfair ...
