Anonymous, 30 Jan 2014i have some problem in video and music what problems u hav??
I bought this phone on 28th Jan 14...I felt to say thanks to guys reviews...I read it and bought this phone....
Coming to the phone...
1.Phone till now, never lag(earlier I used quartro..Its sucks)
2.Games..nice to play games...touch is smooth...its attracting me to play lot
3.battery.....we can get one day....I will not ON "DATA"all the time, I will on when required...thing is if your heavy data user, this one not for you...it will come more or less 16 hrs.... for day 1hr data usage will lead to 1 day battery for sure.
4.Camera:- Not bad...I dont expect more for 12000..fine
5.weight:- I felt it is more weighed then 116HD.ok handy
6.Sound:- i felt little fluctuations at first..I change some setting in the Equalizer...now its fine...Outside speaker can be audible for 1 BHK house!!!
8.Back cover:- It is too difficult to remove at first...believe me I tried 10 mins to remove..grow ur nail guys!!! later its fine...
9.Apps can be transferred to SD card..time god! so No problem with Internal memory.
10.Notification light covered with phone cover, light can be visible but not that much bright as 116HD..I dont know whether it is advantage or Dis...because it will irritate to see red light in 116HD.
11.Mijor advantage is U can keep 3000mAhs battery for this...see all 116HD batteries will fit...so u can get full day with 3G I guess!!
12. Happy to have...But need to check the durability!!
By the way I got it from flip cart for 11770Rs...10% cash back I got!!Cheers...
13.Ok now back drops I felt it is same 116HD phone with back cover and little hardware change...
14.UI(user interface)...need to improve like Samsung touch wig..for now can be manageable
15.Charger and cable are china quality... build quality of charger is like 70rs charger which we will get in phone shops...and its taking 3 hrs to charge
16.Date cable length is small...its depends on where is ur plug board located... for me I am fearing when my phone will fall down.
17. Ear phones...its really scrape...I never used.....I like small buds...its having bigger buds and we cant keep in ears...I just hate it..I have Samsung ear phone I am using that!!!
18.One bug is, When on the Gesture control...Notification light will blink, I dont know whether it is bug or notification...
19.Still on 4.2.1...when we will get 4.4??
20. Camera bulged...same like 116HD
I think this is good rebrabed phone......hope micromax will get their own manufactured phones soon.....Cheers guys!!!

Shashank05, 03 Feb 2014Hey agam,
Can u pls let me know how to and where to install the same as the downloaded file... moreFirst of all root your device then follow the following instructions.
But i would personally recommend you to flash SLD.Next ROM v0.9 For Micromax Magnus A117 [AOSP STYLE] which can be easily found on xda if you have become irritated from this sound fluctuation.
This rom is stable faster, has better battery backup and no sound fluctutaions
1. Extarct the ViPER4Android_4.x_2322.apk from downloaded zip file and follow these instructions:-
1. Copy ViPER4Android_FX.apk to your device.
2. Install the apk as USER app or SYSTEM app is up to you. (v18.104.22.168 onwards)
3. Run FX app from app drawer, allow root access if asked.
4. When driver installation prompted, choose Yes.
5. V4A auto detects your CPU and show available driver modes below :
No modes: For processors with or without VFP .
Battery Saving: Available for all processors with NEON.
High Quality Mode: Available for processors with NEON.
Super Audio Quality: Available for processors with NEON.
6. Choose your desired selection.
7. After installation done, Reboot device.
8. If you want to use only V4A as audio effect, follow normal mode. If you want existing audio effects to work, follow compatible mode.
9. In Sound settings > Music effects, always choose V4A FX unless FX is not installed.
10. Open up V4A FX (and xhifi), in menu, FX Compatible Mode set to Normal Mode.
11. If not working, try Compatible mode before trying Force-Enable.
9. Do not change anything under Sound settings/
10. Open up V4A FX (and xhifi), in menu, FX Compatible Mode set to Compatible Mode.
11. If not working, use Normal mode and disable other effects.
for restart problem just do a factory reset once... it will get solved.. an for sound in music player,pls go to settings inside music player and reduce 3D effect to minimal and headsets are normal but gives good output... try scullcandy headset or beats.....

Not able to figure out which application is causing restart problem.
do not disable any app it will affect your phones performance if you dont want m!security aka netqin then whenever it ask to scan just "tick" on 'never ask again' option and click cancel. otherwise you will face some lags
