The look is decent and can be accepted by most of us. It feels like a high end phone. For the overall look I would give 4.5/5 points to the phone. Actually the perfect curve of the edges and silver banding enhances its beauty.
The display of the phone is 3.2 Inches in size to provide 320×480 px resolution. It colors capacity is 256k, which is used most in this range of phones. The clarity of the display is good.
Their are two cameras in the phone. The primary camera is of 5.0 Megapixel which delivers superb quality images but video quality is not good as compared to image quality. We also can’t expect for this range of phone to make home video. So it is not the demerit of the phone, but simply a limitation. The secondary camera is of 0.3 megapixel.
The audio sound of the phone is superb and we can hear some good music on the full sound at the speaker. Nothing problem with that. if we play some video at low resolution it is also found to be good, but if it comes to high resolution (I mean 480px or more) I find some frame loss. We should also install some player to use the phone in full capacity. The default player is not enough.
Internet / Connectivity:
The phone is capable to to provide high speed internet upto 7.2 Mbps in HSDPA mode however it also has WiFi of 802.11 b/g. Their is a GPS system and v2.1 Blutooth with A2DP support. The phone has 3.5mm audio jack which can be used for powerful headphones and loudspeakers.
The phone comes with standard 1450mAh Li-Ion battery, which enables the phone to keep in network (Standby) about 200hrs and 4 hrs of Talk time. For smartphone at this price is enough, But if it comes to Micromax, I have seen that the performance of batteries varies from handsets to handsets (yes, its handsets to handsets) not model to model.
The phone deliver satisfactory talk-time and stand by almost similar to mentioned above. However, If it comes to playback, the phone’s backup goes down and shows its major drawback. The battery backup is not great, if we watch high resolution video playback at max sound.
The current MRP of the phone is Rs. 7999/- (on Aug 29, 2011)
The phone is also available on flipkart.com at Rs. 7618/- with free shipping within India.
Micromax A70 is a bar type phone which have 5 MP primary camera including 0.3 MP secondary camera for video call. A70 comes with 3.2 inches 262K TFT (320*480 pixels) Full Touch Capacitive Screen.
The phone is most attractive in their price tag and features. Overall it’s a value for money phone.
