Amazing phone from micromax...
*Android 4.4.4 with guaranteed updates
*Looks premium slim and sweet
*Superb touch and sturdy buttons, button response is amazing
*Speed of quad core+1gb ram+stock android, no lags no hangs
*Awesome gaming experience, but light heating beside camera when playin hi end games, anyway its quad core so heating will be there. so i can forgive that :)
*Absence of bloatware which are otherwise too much in MMX
*Display quality at par with moto e
*Flash and front cam
*Free 8GB mmc and screen guard
*Definitely no call drops. Also good voice clarity during calls.
*LED notif and sensors
*Camera though Full HD not that good in dim lights, flash not as bright as compared samsung s duos
*It takes time to start data transfer when iam using mobile data which is quiet annoying. Donno if this is a general problem cz i read some reviews saying problem with wifi conn, app downloads and all but i haven't encountered any of that.
*Battery is good, gives me 9 hrs full time online downloading n some calls. and with medium use gave me a complete day with 11% remainig ;) but still they should have given a 2000mAh
*No gorilla glass
*No file manager or gallary, but downloaded quickpic and ES file explorer, solved the problem.
*NEVER keep ur speakers covered if u dont wanna miss calls, speakers are good and loud but if its blocked u cant hear much of anything
*Head phones provided gives good sound but are uncomfortable to wear rather painful
*No internal memory for media storage, entire 2.3GB left after Android KitKat is dedicated for app installation n that is the secret of the hi speed and smooth performance.
*N ya, though i like stock android speed, even i dont like stock android keyboard and notification style...i like the samsung customised notif bar better
Altogether a great phone and value for money... the best considering the price...
Proud to own the Android PRIME...

Posting here for the first time. Hoping some one can help.
Bought the Micromax A1 from Amazon on Oct 6 for my father, on account of his upcoming b'day. worked fine on day 1. no problem with playstore either however, now it is not switching on. tried all possible known methods but no results. what next apart from going to the service station ofcourse.

Is there any notification led in A1 canvas? If yes then how to activate it? I heard it has no settings for the led.

Anonymous, 07 Oct 2014Yes, it's an error with Micromax A1 canvas. The phone is not downloading an app from playstor... moreHave u installed any file manager
Install a filew managerbn then try downloading the apps friom play store this may work
i m going to buy a phone either android one A1 or unite2. can any one tell which is better out of these two?
got one for me 5 days back. experience is……“they have made it“…
pros: 1)1 gb ram without bloatwares suffice for a phone to handle multitasking
by now I have used all my fav apps which I use on a mobile ,and there is no lag.
2) 4 gb internal memory gives you 2.25 gb of user available storage but big thing is this that this is unified storage and you can download application in whole 2.25 gb unlike other phones of micromax and other companies which boast of 8 to 16 gb of internal memory but space for app download comes to be only 1.75 gb. besides you can transfer big part of applications to sd card while basic data remains on phone memory . default storage on sd is not provided.
3) mediateck quad core processor does its job apprieciably . handles big games and applications without any disappointment. one must use a task killer to limit backgroung processes to avoid lags and heating.
4) touch response is suburb . not like you get on unite2 like cheap devices. no compromise for price has been done on touch quality.
5) direct upgradation to latest android by google for two years makes the dealing unavoidable.
6) forgot the most important thing "its look" superb in this price range, sleek ,rounded ages , premium rubbery soft back, unibody look like lumia devices. camera flash placement. all make it look like a costly device one could boast of it if internet was not there. lols.
camera quality is I can say satisfactory not impressive but considering the price it is not bad. however night shooting though there is a flash is not good.
1) display though 218 ppi is not what you get on a samsung device . brightness contrast all is ok but not that thing which you get on samsung screens. I think its due to quality of LCD they are using. but it is not bad . some people will not even notice it.
2) sometimes when calling I notice mild heating
3) i personally don't like stock android keyboard and status bar with no direct toggles however problem is self solvable with notification toggle applications and keyboards available on google play .
error problem in downloading apps, I haven't experienced except 2 times but that was solved on 2nd try. I must tell you I don't download big games on mobile , for that I use a tab.
concludingly canvas a1 from micromax is THE DEAL.
such a phone is not possible without a contract of 2 giants like micromax and google. if you are a beginner on android this device is going to satisfy you completely however my friends who have used high ended phones may find it not at par, but they too will appreciate it for whwt it provide in this little price comparing to there pocket vacuming costly mobiles.
Rohit, 06 Oct 2014Hi, I got this problem with play store downloads on my micromax canvas A1. I believe this pr... moreYes, it's an error with Micromax A1 canvas. The phone is not downloading an app from playstore. I'm also getting an error which says "unable to download (app name) and error number is 849. Even I'm facing this issue after using it for 20 days now. I visited service center of micromax and they said that the phone need the software update but the software update for this phone is not out yet (Which I doubt is the true answer to this problem). I'm also facing this same issue. I've got 3 canvas A1 and all of them are facing this issue. I'm also in touch with Google directly via email to get this resolved. They asked me to attached the bug report of this phone. They said that they will check the details and get back to me. They also recommended me to get in touch with Micromax but micromax is useless. The strange thing is that I'm able to download apps only at night from 3-6 am using WiFi network. Even I've tried to download app using multiple WiFi network but I failed everytime. I've tried all the steps which you've tried and even I failed to get it resolved. Let's hope that it may get fixed when we upgrade to new Android L or when I get some fix from Google directly as I don't trust Micromax. I've already lost one phone to one of the service center of Micromax. It's more than 1 year now and I've not received my phone back which I gave to them under warrany period. So, I don't want to lose another phone this time. Fingers crossed.
