In India, Micromax is a company worth consideration when you are looking for a handset that is loaded with features, and at the same time does not make a hole in your pocket. Micromax has come to become the 3 largest mobile manufacturer in India and 12th in the world. In a market where giants like Apple and Samsung are vying for the top position, Micromax phones seems to have carved its niche among those who are on a tight budget. But don’t worry, being on a budget doesn’t necessarily mean you have to compromise on the latest features in the mobile world. Here are our top Micromax picks that are budgeted and great to flaunt among friends and family.
Released in November 2012, the MicromaxCanvas 2 turned out to be the most popular phone manufactured by the brand last year. With great features and an added bonus of being available at an affordable price, the Canvas 2 went down well with the general public and tech gurus.Powered by the Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich operating system, the Canvas 2 boasts a dual core processor. Another added feature is its dual SIM functionality, which is always a popular pick in the country. Apart from that the Canvas 2 has a dual camera, convenient for video calls and a massive 5 inch screen with IPS LCD capacitive touch screen display. Its Li-Ion battery delivers a talk time of 5 hours on 2G and 4hrs on 3G, well up to par with its contemporaries. All in all, a great phone with a long list of built in features available on all android phones, with minimal design weaknesses at an amazingly affordable cost.
This upgraded version of the Micromax Pixel A90 grew quite popular last year. The most significant addition to the Pixel A90S, seems to be that of a dual core processor as compared to the single core processor of A90. It runs on the Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich operating system. It has dual SIM functionality with a dual camera, with 8MP primary camera. It has a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen, although, it still falls short when compared with the screen resolution and camera feature of the Canvas 2 which is why the Pixel A90S is our second best choice.
Since its launch in mid-2012, the Micromax Canvas has been quite popular in India. The Canvas has an Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich operating system; a Dual SIM capacity, much like the Canvas 2, but unlike its successor has a single core processor. The 4.92 inch multi touch screen has a great resolution and works well for those who use their phone frequently for playing games, surfing the net, social networking or watching videos. It has a 5MP auto focus camera with an additional 0.3MP front camera. The Canvas gives a 5hrs talk time, which is quite good.And the best part, you can get a Micromax Canvas for a reasonable price of just Rs. 9000, which doesn’t even burn a hole in your pocket.
The Pixel A90 is the predecessor of the Pixel A90S. It has a slim and sleek design and is quite lightweight. It has a crisp 4.3 inches AMOLED screen has superb quality with a good viewing angle and is great for browsing, watching videos and reading text. It comes with a single core processor and an Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich operating system. It has a Li-Ion battery with a talk time of 5hrs. It features a dual camera, with an 8MP primary camera, and dual SIM functionality. The Pixel A90 may be a low range phone, but if you are looking for a low range mobile, packed with great features, the Pixel is perfect for you.
This dual SIM phone is another great addition to the MicromaxSmartphone family. An upgraded version of the Ninja 3, it runs on an Android Gingerbread with a single core processor and features a 4.0 inch touch screen with a fairly good screen resolution. The 2MP camera on the Ninja 4 may seem a step down from the 3 MP camera on the Ninja 3 but with added features like 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS in Ninja 4, we are not complaining. The battery can stand up to 5 hours of talk time. Marketed at about Rs 6000, this is a power packed ‘Ninja’ is every bit worth its price.
