Domestic manufacturer Micromax was one of the top smartphone vendors in the first half of 2016. An IDC study for Q2 2016 pegged Micromax as the second highest ranked smartphone vendor, following only Samsung. However, the industry has seen massive changes since then, and Chinese brands had taken over by the end of the year. As per the latest numbers, no domestic manufacturer is even in the top five.

Micromax Dual 5 Summary

The Micromax Dual 5 can surprise you with its overall performance. It lives up to its promise of high-quality photos with its dual rear cameras, which is its USP. The company offers a one-year free replacement warranty, which is a segment first. Apart from the bloatware and heating issue, you won't really find any major drawback in the Micromax Dual 5 smartphone.

    Srinivasan Mahalingam (Apr 11, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    THE PRODUCT FEATURES ARE GOOD. IN MY PERSONAL OPINION PRICE COULD HAVE BEEN RS20000/- SINCE ITS ASSEMBLED IN INDIA & MICROMAX CAN AFFORD TO PRICE IT COMPETITIVELY & ALSO BECAUSE THE COMPANY IS INTO VARIOUS SEGMENTS.

  • Best in the league.
    Rahul Nayan (Aug 7, 2017) on Amazon
    Though manufacturing and design rights are purchased from the Chinese company qiku, but users and all the critics should give rating based on the phone specifications and working not on its rights or company name.I have used Samsung Galaxy S4,S5 Sony Xperia ZR,M Dual after that I have purchased Micromax Knight only because of its brand Ambassador Hugh Jackman. But I got to find out that Micromax too make quality smart phones if given the price range.Knight was good, after that I used Knight 2. Both were quality phones. Now I have gone for Micromax Dual 5. Now coming on that, watching the price range I was considering Vivo V5 Plus, OPPO F3 Plus, One Plus 3T and Micromax Dual 5.It's being 1 month using the Dual 5.1) Brilliant Battery Backup upto 12hrs if use continuously video streaming, hotspot on, calling and surfing.Standby is approximately 30hrs in normal uses of 5-6 hrs.2)Secure vault is more than enough.3)Lots of Internal Storage.4) No heating issues even on hard usage and gaming.5) Negligible lag time in opening applications.6) Brilliant Front Camera quality and awesome soft flash. (For information it's not screen flash like some of the Moto phones, it's a regular flash but inside display,that's why soft flash. Nice idea behind that so that no effects on eyes.)7) Very Useful pre-installed apps.8) One hand usage on both sides of display not one side like other Os.9) Quick charge takes minimum of 50min. Experimented not 45minutes but it's good because that factory tested without much app installed.10) Best Service provided as 1 year accidental damage protection, home service. No other company provides it.Now few negatives1) Heats a little while quick charging.(No issues as this happens with all phones. It's common as if we quick charge it, more power is supplied so heating will be there a little.)2) Rear Dual camera takes awesome picture in Daylight condition and Natural lighting conditions but in artificial light its quality is not challenging iPhone 6. Though it's a matter of laugh as I compared it to iPhone 6 rear camera but now both prices are approximately same. But in Natural light it's camera pictures are superior.3) 3D video mode requires VR headset for a better experience.4) Fingerprint if given in front it would have be awesome but then also its perfect.So, if you are thinking then go for it without any tension that it's Micromax and its price is high.It's giving you service and its Indian brand as well as quality product.
