    Micromax is good phone company. I am using M2 mobile and it is fell down from 6 to 10 times, still it is working. But android phonse are rebranded chinese phones and this is true. Example Canvas 2 A110 is a rebranded of Beidou Chi Chinese brand. And please don’t compare Micromax with samsung. Samsung is good quality and Micromax is cheap and best.

    for everyone here..Yes its true that mmx just imports chinese phones & remand them as mmx..same is done by Q MOBILE in pakistan..& a company in germany…..these may have extraordinary specs BUT ALAS! very low quality & tweaks…in short SAMSUNG Is the king of modern smartphones (besides I use a nokia bcoz can’t afford samsung out of my pocket money)..
    not affording something & bad is something else…for every mmx fan I KNOW GRAPES ARE REALLY SOUR!!!!

        micromax is a chinese brand named in indian market as desi…
        they are importing that chinese models just by changing name and putting their brand name…
        before arguing just think about that and get clarified about that…

      what bad experience???can u explain what the problem u facing?????

        Ankush

        (February 14, 2013 - 11:57 am)

        Yes i can, i am not jobless to post random suff without any reason!

        I dont deny its a good phone but i had issues which Micromax indirectly told cant be resolved:

        1. Phone reboots (its rare but it does, searched online tried many fixes but all in vain)
        2. The camera is bad, there is no debate here. Other 10k phone i have seen/used have much better image quality (Tipo, Ace, Lenovo P700i)
        3. Network/call issue, it just drops calls sometimes for no reason (This is that really pissed my off)
        4. It lags… not a big issue but it lags out of box without adding apps (that too having a dual-core, here is where u need good R&D team)

        After all this… there is no solution provided by the micromax team!

          Ankush

          (February 14, 2013 - 11:59 am)

          And still it will be hit in India because of our ‘chalta hai’ attitude 🙂 Dosent work for me… i switched to Lenovo P700i

    Dear frnds this is one of best launch of indian mobile and encourage to support…consider the condition of samsung four year before..it was considered as lowest ranked mobile phones..so it is good time for us that micro maxx has improved a lot…and use swadeshi product and strenthen the economy…

      yes yes, suport indian products.
      I am going ti buy this, but its already sold out!. will try tommorrow.
      By the way use indian products like Toothpaste(Dabur red)soap(godrej,ITC)biscuit(britania,Sunfiest) etc– start today itself.

    Ankush

    (February 13, 2013 - 7:30 pm)

    Please don’t encourage ppl to buy these phones! Their built quality is cheap and the OS is buggy. Phones like these spoil Androids reputation!

      Chintan K

      (February 13, 2013 - 9:25 pm)

      @Ankush, please don’t assume anything beforehand. Have you used this device? Have you read/seen full review about this device anywhere? Do you know that Micromax has improved leaps and bounds? This is their 1st device with 1 GB RAM. This is the 1st device ever which features a Mediatek Quad core processor. Give the brand a chance to grow. I m proud to see an Indian company trying its best to make a mark on global tech front! Hence, a sincere request to not to discourage anyone buying this device unless you have concrete proof against the device.

        Do you really think micromax (or any other Indian brand) is manufacturing these phones?
        That’s lame. You should be aware of the fact that all these cheap android phones flooding the Indian market under different Indian brand names are just rebranded chinese phones!
        None of the Indian mobile companies actually “manufacture” these phones.

          Ankush

          (February 14, 2013 - 12:53 am)

          Thats my point! Plus they are zero R&D and no post sales support in case of bugs!

            Chintan K

            (February 14, 2013 - 1:11 am)

            Zero R&D? Micromax’s minimal customization over Android is actually better than those of competitor’s customization. Also, for your information, everything, ENTIRE tech world is manufactured in China! Even iPhone is manufactured in China. That doesn’t mean that every phone is a Chinese rip-off/rebrand. If you have followed Micromax closely, you would know that they have a strategic alliance with Mediatek and they are actually procuring processors from them and manufacturing the device on their own! Also, the processor in question has actually fared well amongst competition (youtube it)! This is the first phone with Mediatek quadcore processor, how can it be a rebranded chinese phone? lol..seriously, think b4 u comment!
            MMX have studied the market well and Samsung is actually fearing MMX ..this is evident in recent price cuts and launch of galaxy grand (stupid move at that price point). High time people change their perception towards MMX. At the same time I also agree that MMX has a long way to go, hope to c good progress over next couple of years.
