I am using this phone for more then a week now,some of the pros and cons of the phone are listed below.

Build quality:

1-->Good build quality,the dark chocolate brown color looks awesome. the quality of plastic and SS back battery cover makes the phone feel rigid and heavy.

1--> it supports everything, wifi hotspot,bluetooth 3.0 A-GPS. I installed Sygic to check the GPS signal and working and it worked flawlessly.
2-> 2 sim support - one for 3g and other for 2g. Micromax has done some good software upgrade to recognize the sims from which u dial or send message.Trust me the interface for it is not the one if any 1 thinks if its a china phone.

Qwerty Keyboard:
keyboard is ok, not like the one on BB, but it ofcourse takes time to get use to it. Both the android keyboard and physical keyboard can be used as the big screen makes it more convenient.

1300 Mah-- its not that good not bad either. With a full charge and whole day connected to GPRS and sometimes WIFI. it last for one full day. I have HTC one X , 1800mah battery and it last for same either.

Sound Quality;
Ok from the supplied in-earphones and good if you use a nice headphones. It also has a RDS radio which works good.

Movies- Dont expect micromax to play 1080p movies, u can plan a normal NON HD video easily.

Quadrant Benchmark--> I ran the complete benchmark and its just below the score of samsung galaxy s so not bad.

Software- It has many software provided with the phone like FB, TOI, Micromax market and ofcourse it also support android market and google PLAY.

Camera: Not good. Its not autofocus and takes average photo in Sunlight and frankly no use of flash.

Speakers: Very good and loud.

Final Words--> Good phone at 7200 INR mostly coz of
Dual Sim
Qwerty Keyboard
Build Quality
definitely an alternative to BB as dnt have to subscribe for BB service.

Not Good for
HD movies

Does the phone get heated up during heavy use say eg while on call for more than 20 minutes? That seems the problem with the other micromax A70. Also what are the SAR values?

To dp,
tell us more about the video calling experience. Also if any common apps you won't be able to install e.g. skype. Does it support the adobe flash player and chrome browser?
Looking forward.

i bought it 5 days before.
im a high end android user..
so far, its performance is as per the expectation..

average speed response. 256 RAM, 650 mHz processor.
quite comparable touchpad and sound
advantage of Dual SIM and Keypad.

though camera is not enjoyable yet A78,
the QUITE GOOD android phone we can have at this prize (7590 Rs.)

ya, battery life i think is disapointing with average 7-10 hours "IN HAND" usage after 5 days of experience...
