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...

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.

Seems Great

Looking at the specs, the phone seems a good feature rich model,

one drawback i noticed is the 3.5 mm headphone port placement is not on top side ... its on the left side which is not to everyone's taste and feels awkward to keep in pocket.

rest feels good in its price range.

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

Good phone but battery sucks

Although I never expected i-phone kind of experience out of this phone, most of the basic requirements are fulfilled. QWERTY keypad is a breeze and works equally well, I actually started texting after getting this phone. However after 4 months of usage, battery life is really poor. credit goes to 1300 mAH battery.... very less for a phone that's capable of doing so many thing.
May be micromax should have looked at providing higher rating battery. But i know thats not possible coz this phone ...
