My first review/hands on experience.
I recently bought(2 weeks back) Micromax A80 @ Rs.7399/-, courtesy an offer of Rs. 600 by Tradus 2 weeks back. Delivered promptly.
To begin with, the looks are great!! Many felt that this is a very costly mobile. The prime reason behind this purchase is the mammoth battery it hosts and the
factor that android consumes a lot of power. As I am a frequent traveller(by train), I needed a mobile whose battery lasts overnight inspite of heavy usage and low/no
signals. This mobile easily exceeds this expectation. On the flip side, anyone who holds this mobile gives a sigh as this is heavy!! But then its a trade off I made
for the powerful battery. I exhaused 50% of battery after 6 hours of continuous usage that included low signals, gaming, occasion browsing through 3g and 2g and also
Samsung Galaxy Y was an alternative but then I preferred this due to 3.75inches screen and few good features over galaxy Y. My friend who recently bought a galaxy Y
duos was stunned at this piece and the price at which it came. No wonder we feel great! But then Samsung is a reputed 'brand' and service far far better than
Micromax as per google research. Hope I don't get a chance to visit a micromax service center, because of the rave reviews I have seen.
The screen lock/unlock button is on top just besides the charging port, which makes it not easy to lock/unlock! Wish it could have been sideways. Capacative touch
is amazing!! Way better than galaxy Y as judged by my colleague, who has a galaxy Y. Sideviews are not so great. But then the screen resolution looks apt! Display
looks good under sunlight!
Installed elixir app. It shows total internal memory as just 418MB (Data folder has 164MB, system folder has 254MB). Data folder is used to store our apps. Some
amount of memory will be used for internal memory, even while the other will be writted to an external SD card. We can load quite a few apps but surely not too many.
Elixir shows RAM as a total of 200MB. Very less. Wish it could have been 512. My memory usage hovers around 80%. So in order to play a powerful game, android may
kill other processes. I didn't observe any lags while paying games like angry birds, contract killer(very resource intensive), IPL fever, raging Thunder, Speed Moto,
etc. Enjoyed the games on this mobile. I would have been very happy had the RAM being 512 as the specs suggested. Bit disappointed. Not sure if this can bee
rooted!! If we can, we can freesome more memory.
Skype video calls are not supported as yet. Very very disappointed. Don't know if it is due to Android 2.3.4 or lack of skype support for this mobile thus far.
Also don't think this mobile will have any upgrade. We have to stick with 2.3.4 only.
The sound quality on the headphones is good for me. Adjust the bassboost, Vitualizer, Equalizer to hear a decent sound. Might not be the best but it's good enough
for me. FM radio is there and works good.
Wifi is very fast, 3g is good and gprs is okay. The camera quality looks good but the pictures aren't perfect. May be due to lack of autofocus. Front cam is an
added value had skype supported video calls.
Phone call audio volume is not too high. Its just sufficient enough. Calls on headset is good though.
GPS is great!! With just 3g, Google maps showed my navigation(travel) all along with super accuracy.
Overall, I am happy with this piece so far. Please note that this is my first android mobile and hence I might be impressed easily. This is my feedback based on my experience and intuition. You may use your discretion before buying this mobile based on your preferences.
PS: Micromax A84 is just release that sports almost 4 inches and is TFT capacative screen(18M colors) and 1Ghz process but with a price of nearly Rs.9999. You may consider that as well before taking a decision. Again the RAM is nowhere mentioned by the vendor.
256 or 512 mb ram?
What cpu and gpu?
Video capture fps?
