A phone running on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) available at a price of Rs. 9990? Why would any one do that at a time when most of the phones are using the latest version – Android 4.0 ICS.
Micromax has launched its new phone A84 superfone Elite with the previous version of Android. In a market where the competition has already launched phones that would compete hard with the Micromax A84 superfone elite, Micromax could have taken a smart step by giving the phone Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Recently launched phones like Spice Stellar beat the phone in terms of pricing. Similar priced products make the cut in term of the OS.
But the phone has an edge on some of its competitors thanks to its larger screen. The phone has a 3.98 inches IPS LCD capacitive touch screen. The screen has multi touch capabilities that make it a little easier to use.
Micromax A84 houses a 1 GHz processor and is powered by a Li-ion 1630mAh battery. This Smartphone is claims to have a standby backup of up to 150 hrs and a talk time of 4 hrs and 30 minutes. The company makes no mention of the internal memory while the external memory is said to be expandable to 32 GB. While the connectivity options include GPRS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB, the phone lacks a GPS feature.
The design of the phone is pretty good. It is bar shaped with rounded edges. The sleek finish and the large screen of the phone give it a really nice look. As shown in the image, the phone supports voice input. It also comes pre loaded with a document reader. This would help the business users in viewing and editing their documents at times when they can’t access their computers.
The primary camera of Micromax A84 is a 5 MP auto focus camera with a LED flash. It is assisted by a Geo-tagging feature that allows you to tag your location to the awesome pictures that this camera clicks. Despite the good primary camera, the secondary camera is a VGA one and thus video chats are not going to be much clear with this phone.
It is a good phone with standard features, but lacks when it comes to the operating system. Otherwise, it is good piece to buy, which leaves an impression with its powerful camera. The phone is currently available in black color only. We suggest browsing some sites over the internet to get the phone at some discount. The next in line by Micromax are A90 and A100. We hope Micromax doesn’t fumbles with these models.
