Excellent phone by an Indian Company

Hello,
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 everythi...

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. :-)

???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!!!

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.

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...

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.

To Save Battery

1. Stop all unnecessary service like google play, facebook etc which are default in the system. These use internet data and also huge amount of batter. Try to make the phone as simple as possible by closing most of the application, open them when you need.

2. Reduce the screen brightness.
