“Super Performance by SUPERFONE at Super Price”!!

Hi! It was about 25 days ago I had purchased this yes! Of course from flipkart and now finally writing about Micromax A78 but before it I want to tell thanks to flipkart for timely delivery and well damaged proof package with their seal also. Since it was my first online purchase so I had hesitated towards product seal, freshness & its genuineness but all this things became my pleasure as soon as I open the package.
Now about the Phone no! no! SUPERFONE!!!
1. Body Cover: - It’s a coffee color with rubber finishing and rounded corners looks fantastic with metallic coffee battery cover at back.
2. Deign: - It has really 3.5 inches display with good ratio of height and width. Four android soft keys Menu, Back, Search and Home below the display and then QWERTY keypad which is of plastic and also placed very near to each other probably for considering the size of phone that not get look ugly but overall looks good. Two physical buttons volume control and camera key at right side and a power key at top. Left side having an USB port and 3.5mm jack which will if at the top then it be better and also USB port does not having cover. Micro SD card and both SIM slot is placed below the battery.
3. Battery: - 1300mah battery gives near about 2 days backup in normal use and 4 to 5 days stand by.
4. Screen: - It’s a good clear, bright and multi touch screen. Screen is very sensitive and responsive since it is a capacitive so touch experience is very smooth but one drawback is also there, also in almost every Smartphone within 10K have, that is low visibility of screen in sunlight. You tube videos plays very clear.
5. Sound: - Both front and back speaker performs well and sounds are clear in a phone call. Back speaker is not loud but it gives quality audio playback. Headphones sound quality is much better and loud also.
6. Camera: - Picture quality of back camera whether it is in video or photo mode both are very well which I liked most and with the presence of LED flash & 4x zoom gives additional edge to the phone. Basic front camera is just well for video calling.
7. Performance: - Since it has only 650 MHz processor, 150mb RAM and 256mb internal storage and also phone came with some preloaded apps which can’t be removed occupies up to 95mb of RAM and 110mb of internal memory. So I recommends for at least 8 GB micro SD card which have good read and write speed so that apps installed in SD card could execute speedily. And also install an Auto Task Killer application which is free in android market so that apps which is not in use can be get closed automatically and frees the RAM and speed of phone not get compromised. Connectivity is good and phone does not getting heat when continuously talking on call for an hour without headphones.
8. Applications: - All preloaded apps are performs smoothly and useful too. But I liked mostly Saavn, FM radio, Navigation (A-GPS), Wi-Fi tethering and Polaris Office as it support both viewing & editing of documents. But one cone is also here that it supports only word, excel or power point file in MS 97-2003 format only not MS 2007 documents might it will be upgraded in future. A lot more can be downloaded from android market as presently I’m installed 15 additional apps from Google Play Store.

The above opinion is based on completely handset that I get and using personally if anyone having any adverse opinion of this product due to getting a bad quality of this model they can express too and also don’t try to compare it with a phone of 15K.
Finally must say remember what you get at what you paid i.e. just near about 8K only.
Once again thanks to flipkart.

Excellent phone by an Indian Company

Bought this phone for my sister.
An excellent mobile phone with 'ALL' the features.

Once you enter your gmail address while setting up your android account, there's no looking back.

The wifi and gps work like a charm. The battery is good which lasts easily for 1 and a half day with data connection on.

Video calling is excellent, I tried it with my galaxy tab 7 plus and there were no issues.

The full QWERTY key pad is an added advantage. The 3.5 inch touch screen is Good. Pls don't compare it with 30000 bucks AMOLED screens, but it is clear, you can surf the net and read everything finely.

Google Play (Android market) is available for you to download apps. All games including Angry Birds etc run beautifully.

While buying it from Flipkart, pls buy the 8 GB micro SD card as well; because without the micro SD card the camera won't save snaps, which is Good. Otherwise the inbuilt memory'll be filled up by snaps.

I fully recommend this phone for everyone. It's good looking, and with all the features you'd want or imagine. :-)

best review

Well, finally I m writing my review on micromax(world’s 10th largest mobile manufacturer company) a78.i bought 2 days back.(not from flipkart)
For me my requirement was anroid +qwerty+dualism so only 2 promising options I got which was micromax a78sperfone a78 & Samsung galaxy y pro duos.
-looks stuning manly look with choco brown color
-yes it has 3.5” screen & display resolution is amazing
-hardwers are so wonderfully cheep plastic. Back cover madeup of s.s
-sound is really superb in earphones.(I m aware of quality of all big brand sound quality)
-all application inbuilt & from google play is working perfectly.
Battery backup- (16 hours with whole day watsup n net working)
Processor 650mhz.
Rigid qwerty pad, it will take time to use to with it(virtual qwerty is also available).
All I have to say, if u want to save yo 2000bucks & don’t want to think of resell u can buy it.
I bought in 8000(with 146gb crd) 4 out of 5. N cheers to micromax for huge upgradation!!!

This phone is an all-rounder.

I have set my sights on this device, ever since it was announced. Am waiting for a full review to pop up somewhere before actually buying the device. The specs sheet have all the specs at the minimum possible at today's date. (One of the specs not listed is Wifi tethering, I confirmed it with Micromax customer care)

Even though the specs are low, the device checks almost all the feature a phone can provide. Front camera, Large screen, qwerty pad, wifi tethering, active dual sim and so on.... There are other phones which provides most of these features with better specs, but at least one of the features of Micromax A78 will be missing. (Xperia pro series are not dual sim and the pro mini has a small screen, also its expensive. Motorola fire also is not dual sim)

So it all comes down to how good the phone performs on the promised features, Micromax have a bad reputation for customer service and providing upgrades for their devices) Waiting for an official review. My ratings are purely for the promised specs and value for money.

Good Phone... Value for the price tag...

The phone Function is Good. For the Price Tag, its worth it. Have been using this for two months now. This is one of only two nonflip and non slide phones with a touchscreen and Qwerty keyboard. That's wat I was looking for.

Phone : Pros
1. Excellent Touch Screen. Really Sensitive and godd feedback.
2. Supports 32GB SDCard.
3. Dual Sim function is good.
4. Internet access is good and responsive.
5. Camera is good. Settings may be troublesome. Picture Quality is good. Has Panorama mode also which someone said was a big deal.
6. Front camera can be used for video calls.
7. All downloaded Apps(Games, utils etc) are working great.
8. Playes videos and songs like a charm.
9. Qwerty Keyboard excellent.

Phone : Cons
1. Battery Sucks. Have to recharge every 6 hrs. I will have to change/replace the battery. Some reviewers have mentioned that they are getting 2-3 days of backup. Not my experience though.
2. Loud Speaker Sound is not good. Other phones have much higher volume and clarity.
3. Pre-installed Apps are useless, memory consuming and you cannot do anything about
4. MI Apps DOES NOT work.
5. One of the the battery compartment lock broke when I was changing SIMs a few days back. I have now put a sticker to hold it there. My bad Luck.

Giving it a 3.5(4) , if the battery and its compartment lock was good, would have given it a 5.
But you won't get these features in any other phone at that price. I just hope it lasts. That will be a winner.

Few things that should be noted:
1. The battery charging port is near the top left corner, due to which it is highly inconvienient to call when it is charging.
2. The only speaker in the phone is on the back and so the volume (if listening it music) is very low if it kept on a desk.
3. If any problem with the phone, it has to be taken to a Micromax service Center which is hard to find.

Features makes you happy but battery turn you down

Decent phone to have. Some features really makes you happy but only its slowness and low battery backup will turn you down...
Pros :-
1. Awesome features like call blocker, incoming call recorder inbuilt in mobile and no need to keep some app in background or for managing it separately...
2. Front camera to support video calling
3. Call logs being concise (grouped per calling numbers), it is easier to find dialed numbers from history
4. No hangs / crashes experienced till date

1. Battery backup is not good. You need to bring down the phone screen brightness to lowest... keep background apps to minimal, use wi-fi/GPS / GPRS etc only on need basis in order to keep the mobile alive for a day with one SIM. With two SIMs, there is no hope

2. Internal memory not enough. Although there are all the bundled apps ranging from document reader to facebook to whatsapp gmail and all but this mobile is not at all good for game playing or putting any other app of your choice.

3. Keypad is pretty hard for typing and there are no arrow keys!

Updated review -- Good for the price, see caveats

I wrote the review below three days after buying it. I have now used it for over four months. Mostly it still stands -- for the price is is excellent. But some additions.

PRO --
* robust. I have dropped it several times (from waist height, on various surfaces) and the screen is fine.

* Keypad very comfortable to use

* Does everything I need, reasonably well.

* As I said below, too much preinstalled junk, some of which starts up automatically (eg facebook). And no way to root the thing (that I know of).

* RAM is too little, and therefore browser (all browsers) force-close when you open too many bulky webpages.

* For same reason, when you are doing too much, phone is not very responsive.

* Occasional crashes/reboots, probably for the same reason (low RAM). If they had supplied 512MB, I think it would have been a vastly different experience. The processor speed doesn't matter too much.

* Skype video doesn't work, though the front camera works.

* The LED flash no longer works. I will probably take it to the service centre sometime.

That may seem like a lot of cons, but you get what you pay for. To me it's minor stuff and I can live with it. The phone best suits my needs even now -- given the choice I'd buy it again (especially as it's even cheaper now than when I bought it.)


I have been using this phone for 3 days now and love it. Coming from a Nokia E63, I felt right at home with the qwerty keyboard (this was important to me). The build quality seems as good as any international brand I've seen. The screen is large, clear and comfortable (the largest among qwerty phones that I know of, except for sliding phones which are more expensive). Phone reception, call quality and clarity are excellent. Camera picture quality is decent. The LED flash is useful as a flashlight (there are apps for this on Google Play). The buttons are ergonomic and placed sensibly. The UI is responsive -- occasional freezes (expected in a low-end device) but nothing to complain of -- indeed, performance is much better than I expected with these specs. Tethering (USB and wifi) work out of the box.

I have given it 4 stars, and not 5, for one reason only -- there is far too much pre-installed stuff that one can't get rid of (at least, not until someone figures out how to root the thing). Dear Micromax and other manufacturers -- if you must install Facebook, Polaris Office, and dozens of obscure apps ("Mi-Apps", "Postcard", "TeenPatti" and whatnot), at least make it possible for the user to remove them! As it stands, there is very little free space left on the phone. I did put in a 32GB microSD card, but not all apps can be installed on the sdcard.

Only one other minor quibble -- it would be nice if the microUSB and headphone ports could be covered.

On the whole, it is nice to see an Indian company produce an international-quality phone at a very attractive price point. Just please allow the users to choose what apps they want to keep on their phone!

Very Slow and Hangs a lot .. Useless

I bought this phone from some other website as I got a heavy discount. Using it since past 2-3months -

1) Hardware is of low configuration.
2) Its a feature rich phone but lacks proper hardware, basically the phone is not capable of handling the features/process.
3) It takes some 5-8 seconds for the call log application to start very irritating, real pain if you want to make a call and it also frequently force closes and hang-ups
4) As you load more and more apps the phone starts dying and becomes unstable. you need to have a lot of patience while using this phone, at times i felt like throwing it.
5) unnecessary software are preloaded by Micromax which are just waste, we cannot remove them, not to forget that they take up RAM and internal memory.
6) Battery should have been better it just lasts for a day and drains more faster if you use internet or wifi. I usually keep it plugged to my computer to charge while on PC during day time.
7) Basically all the software works slow on this device.

Pros -
1) lot of helpful features along with Dual Sim like black listing and white listing of phone numbers, changing of sims to call and send sms while in the menu. Schedule Power off/On
2) Qwerty Keypad much better than screen typing.
3) the phone looks sturdy and quality of material is good.

conclusion -
Phone could have been better if they can just upgrade their hardware - processor speed, ram and internal memory. Almost wanted to throw in dustbin due to speed. Bought another phone now.

Nothing Like This Phone

I waited for almost 6 months for buying a Indian Mobile phone and finally must say that Micromax A78 is worth the wait.
It has all the features which yu must have read in specs and features. Out of 10,I rate features as under:
1. Looks - 8
2. Touch response - 8
3. Easy of use / setup/ installation, etc - 9
4. Camera( Main)- 7
5. Voice Quality/ loudness - 8
6. Wifi - 8 ( works well upto one wall in between your router)
7. Bluetooth - Easy to setup and great speeds of transfer.
8. Dual SIM feature - 9 ( works perfectly fine)

Wish List :
1. Auto Focus Camera.
2. A bit longer battery ( but that's a problem with all Android Smart Phones)
3. Compatibility software development for Skype, Yahoo messenger with vdo chat.

Overall a fantastic phone which has all the hardware possible under the sky..
Just buy it with closed eyes and open them only when you have the phone in your hands.
