As many others reported, I have also had the same issue, all of sudden the touch buttons stopped working.

Because of this I had to go for their service center and come to know about the worst part of micromax.

They ask for 7-10 working days to fix the issue. I don't understand how come some1 ask for 7-10 days to fix a mobile phone. What am I supposed to do during.!!

When I reported the same on their facebook wall, instead of responding to the complaint, they simply deleted it.

Value for money is what my experience till date about Micromax Canvas Maganus A117, purchased almost 8 months back. The sound effects are absolutely wonderful. So far so good..

Minor issues I am facing are
1.The space running out in the inbuilt memory while installing app. in spite of available in built space.
2. The video player gets stuck while playing some videos
3. This phone do not have the strength to bear a small fall unlike nokia which is sturdy. It opens into two pieces even in a small fall.

I have brought this phone one month after its official release and must it has kept me satisfied till now. One of the best phones ever. Ya their is that sound fluctuation prob but that is only when u have not put on the speakers. And why ignore the 3D and bass booster settings available in the music player. Micromax music player is one of the top 7 best players in its category. I would highly recommend this phone, its enough for our college days. And miss monika if you play @round with your phone in water or just throw it from huge height then i guess any hand set might get weird. So stop giving the wrong idea to other people.

Hey guys. Purchased this smartphone at holi. It is a very good smartphone. Don't think that it has worst performance or bad service centers. This phone is a monster. I purchased it from a mobile shop and it is working greatly.camera is good and videos are recorded in FHD (1080P). But after 6 or 7 months i got a problem with the capacitive buttons. They were suffering from phantom key presses. The capacitive buttobs were working on its own. Gave the phone for service. They said that we have to replace touchscreen. And they said that i dont have to pay money because i didn't damaged it.i was a bit scared about service. After 5 days rhey called me and said that your phone has been replaced and after a day i received a courier and when i opened the box i saw that they gave me blue color smartphone instead of my whitw and the phone was working like a charm so cheers

As usual all micromax mobiles are Awesome! Only if it can be given absolutely free or if you found any fallen MCMX phone in street....really very bad service given by MCMX service center located in ambernath, I buyed A-117 magnus worth RS 14k which is my foolest decision and after 5 months suddenly touchpad stoped working, and its being 1 month and I have not rec my cell phone back, I don't know why the hell MCMX company is selling there cell phones in Mumbai if production or all parts available in Delhi... Very bad experience... Stop fooling people in these competetive world by selling China phones in a high rate..

Purchased the phone on 27.12.2013.

Working like charm...
No problems at all.
Few people had bad experience with this device, don't know why or how, mine is just working fine.
Few months back the phone got dropped on road from my trousers while cycling, thought camera and display gone gone gone, to my surprise display just got scratched, thanx to the screen guard nothing happened to the display, but the camera guard was slightly cracked, but shooted pics no problem at all.

Keep up the good work MMX !!

Before Magnus i used Sony Sola(floating beauty) and xperia P, but guess what this baby beats them all !!

Became fanboy of MMX from sony

I have been using a117 for almost a year now.
Here are my reviews.
Simply awesome is what comes to my mind. The only problem i faced is with google play app.
But overall its worth the money.

1.Purchased on 07/02/2014
2.Due to Microphone problem submitted to service center on 03/03/2014 for 7 days due to non availability of ringer.
3.After recieving again there was same problem after 3 days,resubmitted for more 7 days due to non availabilty of ringer.
4.After recieving the date was 09/06/2014,again on 13/06/2014 there was a problem with touchpad,was not available at service center,again submitted for 50 days.
5.On August 1st week i got my cell but again i faced problem of ringer but that day it was avaible in stock they replaced i also checked ringing was quite good at service center but as soon as i reached my home i was listning the same ringtone as previus.
6.Again i submitted my phone on 24/09/2014 and still on today 01/10/2014 service center replied that they have not having stock yet,they are waiting for the same.They are asking us why you purchased micromax phone.

This is very irrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiitating.
Now i decided not to getback my phone from service center,it is better to purchase new branded phone.
Really i have lost so much time in my phone now i feel old phones were very good than these androids as we are addicted due to whatsapp.
Friend dont bye Micromax,Karbonn.

> In reply to aadil @ 2014-09-26 17:35 from rJ9G - click to readI am an unfortunate costumer of Micromax Canvas Magnus A117. i purchased it on 5.3.2014 through snapdeal. in the 1st month itself showed some complaint like storage space running out. that was resolved by service center by re installing the software. for another two month passed without much heavy trouble. again same problem of storage space running out shows. then i contacted the service center they were not aware of the cause behind the issue. they said they can only re install the software. they cannot answer question regarding the internal space, in specification it was shown that internal space is 2GB, whereas the space used to install apps and software is only below 1GB.so i done a factory reset and solved the issue for the time being. on 4.8 2014 its sensors in the lower part stopped working, there by the functions of return and short cut and home screen do not work,needless to say touch screen is working though it shows some slow response.so on 05.08.2014 i handed over the phone to service center M/s TechBeam, they informed me to weight for 15 days its board has to be replaced, then i contacted the customer care they informed 20 days, unfortunately it took 42 days to return the phone the reason conveyed by the service center is that they are not getting spares from the company they also directed contact the company. after repair i received the phone on 16.9.2014, but within 2 hours the phone showed the same complaint if forced re deposit the phone with the same service center. there after i was frequently contacting the customer care over mail and phone. the reply always is stereo typed we handed over the case to the concerned team and asked to wait patiently, already iwaited 52 days still asking me to wait patiently. even my request for replacement phone also not responded. so this is my appeal to any prospective purchaser of micromax that you will get this sort of support from micromax so think 100 times before purchasing any micro max producr
