Micromax A100 Superfone
If anything, you cannot say about the Micromax A100 Superfone Canvas that it is a boring product. For starters, you will pay less than Rs. 10,000 to make it yours. And that is something to look forward to. This device also has many other pros, but we will tackle them, along with the cons, in this review.
More improvements introduced
The Micromax A100 is a smartphone which comes with a display of 5″. That’s a lot to brag about. Other specs are as follows: 480 x 800 pixels, 6 million colors, a 1GHz single-core Qualcomm Scorpion chipset ARM V7 CPU, Adreno 200 graphics unit, a 0.3-megapixel camera (on the front), Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich operating system , 512 MB of RAM, a microSD card slot for a total of 32GB, one cam with 5MP and a Li-ion 2000 mAh battery.
Compared to previously tested Micromax versions, this one clearly wins by having such a big touchscreen. Because that translates into better images and comfort once you use it. And add to add the large amount of colors besides the multi-touch option and you are set for a groovy typing – and not only – experience. There is also full support for all of the following: microUSB port, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, 2G, GPS and 3G.
All throughout our testing session, the operating system included on this Micromax A100 delivered such a performance as befits a good smartphone. That implies a lot of smoothness from its part whenever we did something. Like for instance when we watched a clip in 720p full high definition. The design of this model is very nice. In particular its rear, where we found the kind of finish that makes such a device easy to use.
Games that are in high definition pose no problem to the A100. We had a session of Angry Birds and everything went very well. The model’s dual microphones made sure there was no unnecessary sound issues.
The Micromax A100 can go on for 5 hours if you only use it for talking with friends. But even if you use it for more demanding tasks that take a while, this is the kind of battery that is capable of lasting a day. without hiccups.
The 5MP cam that this smartphone boasts is joined by LED flash, too. The second cam is not very good and we cannot recommend the 5MP one enough, because its quality is also mediocre. If you are someone who likes to constantly take a photo with this smartphone, try and look at other models. They will definitely offer what you are after.
The simple fact that this device features light sensors, G-sensors and other important sensors makes its loudspeaker quality be awesome. High five for this, Micromax.
As for the processor, the graphics unit and other important specs’s performance, we can assure our readers that they all delivered beyond our expectations. Which honestly were not that high to begin with. But then along comes such a phone and sets things straight about cheap models like itself.
Micromax does not ring the same bell – meaning its popularity – as manufacturers such as Samsung or HTC do. But this company’s very own A100 has a lot of strong selling points that we mentioned in the above review. Its potential was high to start with and in the end, almost all expectations about it came true. Go and have a look at it. You might like it.
