Impressive Phone from Micromax
By Rajbir Singh Shienh | 2 May 2014
I had been a nokia user for a very long time, used both S40 and S60 versions of Nokia phones, then i moved to Motorola Defy Plus which was my first android phone. At that time it was around 16K and it had 5MP camera which was too bad in quality but, it was an android phone. So, next i moved to Micromax A76 which was a sober smart phone but, not so good. I was in search of a perfect budget phone. I wanted everything in next android phone,good looks, performance, budget, good camera and good customizability. So, initially i thought about Micromax Canvas Turbo but, it was of 15K at that time and only feature it had more than Micromax magnus A117 was Screen resolution and camera(little 0.4 MP) greater than Magnus to down effect it has no SD-Card slot. But, i changed my mind to magnus why? Because, it has got sleekness in looks so Slim and yet durable Aluminum body, with powerful Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A7 processor (It really affects response time of phone; benchmark on Antutu is 16560), 1 GB of RAM good for playing heavy games like Asphalt 8(2GB game), Crisp Camera Quality of 12.6MP that's really lot more good quality than any mobile phone having lower MP may it be Samsung too and Better backup of upto 12Hr (Average) and 5 inches IPS Panel good for watching videos and movies and playing good graphics games (It has got GPU of PowerVR SGX544MP2 similar company which makes GPUs of Iphone). So, in short i got a COMPLETE PACKAGE IN BUDGET.

Micromax A117
By Indudhara Gs | 3 Jul 2014
Hi Friends.. Please think before going ahead with micromax.. as I am already suffering from purchasing this phone.. its been 2 months of purchase and more than 1 month it is with micromax service center. I have given twice for service center as the home key touch buttons problem still unresolved. And micromax is not giving me refund or replacement for this even after asking many times. They tell without hesitating you have to wait for another 20 to 25 days of minimum standard working days for your mobile and no other options.Also please guide me what to do get rid of this, and get my mobile.

Great Device .. Go for It
By Akshay Khatri | 16 Aug 2014
1) This phone is worth the price bracket of 13k. 2) Features a quad core 1.5Ghz Processor with 1GB RAM.. STILL AWESOME PERFORMANCE. 3) I played almost all games like Asphalt 8 airborne,GTA on this device it works well.. Although there is heating issue while playing heavy games.. 4) Battery backup is phenomenal on this device even in 2000mAh battery.. HAts OFF.. 5) Sound and Camera quality are a little algging behind in terms of Bass and pictre Quality respectively. 6) No upgrade to 4.4 Kitkat ..it works on Jellybean 4.2.2 :( But overall a great Device and graet to use in performace.. Go for it.. :)

Love It :-D
By Shikhar Dalvi | 31 May 2014
Price - Got it in 13390 from local dealer in vadodara Camera - just Awesome. Processor - Awesome play all high end games flawlessly (some on medium graphic settings) Battery life - Awesome Looks - Awesome (sleek + aluminum back cover) Rom - Jelly bean out of the box -- mmx says it will give kitkat but no news till now. But jellybean it self is - awesome :-D Screen - HD + IPS - Awesome Sound - speaker- got some fluctuations in sound - earphone- awesome And much more... I will give 9 out of 10. And its definitely the best in its price range.

Your service is very bad
By Rakesh Shukla | 27 Oct 2014
My mobile phone has dead from 26 aug 2014 to till. And I've submitted my mobile at Global Infotech service center Indore(MP)(Authorised from micromax) on 26 aug 2014. He told me that your mobile phone will solve issue till 15 days but now completed above 45 days from thieir hand. I'm continue contact with thier and meet their again and again but he is not responding positive and finally he told me. Your service is very bad. I'm very frustrat last two months but you are not responding positive. I'll not suggest your phone for my friends and family members. I request you that you are responsible for your customer and provide good service.
