Micromax Bolt Q324
The Q324 is one of the more affordable options on the list. It’s a little more bare bones, but still provides most of the amenities you’d expect from your average mobile phone.
This mobile has a basic camera, with a 2 megapixel back camera and a .3 megapixel front camera. The front camera is suitable, but only in good lighting.
The screen is smaller than the other mobile’s on this list, checking in at 4 inches. The quality of the screen is actually pretty good, with ~233 pixels per inch. It’s not HD, but it’s not poor quality.
Like we said, it does include the basics: bluetooth, wi-fi, micro USB and GPS. The 1450 mAh battery claims to provide a talk time of about 5 hours. It has a quad core 1.2 GHz processor that gets the job done.
– Vibrant screen
– Multiple colors to choose from

Micromax Andro A60
The Micromax A60 is an entry level, basic smart mobile phone. It’s the smallest of the five, with a 2.8 inch screen. A stylus is recommended to make navigating with the touch screen easier. It runs an older form of Android, with a 600 MHz processor. The processor isn’t the strongest, so going through the interface can be a little clunky at times.
This mobile does indeed have a camera. Just one though, a 3.15 megapixel back camera, with autofocus. The camera takes quality pictures with good lighting, and you have the ability to share a picture of Facebook and Twitter.
Other features include 3G, Wi-fi, bluetooth, and GPS. A Li-Ion 1280 mAh battery provides talk-time of 4 hours. Internal memory of 150 MB can be increased to 32GB with microSD card.
The only feature ‘missing’ in the A60 is the front camera, for the most part, this phone is as capable as all others on our list.
– Good camera for the price
– Good included features
– Small screen
– Short battery life
After reviewing these five Micromax phones available in India, we came away impressed. Each mobile had it’s own pros and cons, but they were all quality options considering their price point.
Even the most basic, budget mobile phone will guarantee you a touch screen, camera, w-fi capability and a solid Android operating system. Though, they aren’t the most eccentric group of phones, being available in black, white and occasionally blue.
