Note : **Some of the reviews are picked from flipkart, Amazon and other e-stores.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Micromax officially Launched this phone on amazon.I bought this phone from flipkart because i had vouchers else i would have bought it from amazon coz it’s the official seller of micromax android one.
    Talking about the phone, well its’s pretty amazing. Its brilliantly fast no wonder google made android one for low end devices like this keeping optimization in mind.
    -Few Facts about the phone
    1. Android One is google’s project for low end smartphones.
    2. So google will release all the latest softwares for the same. It will get Android 5 soon!
    3. The optimization of this phone is quite good. The ram management is pretty
    brilliant. Out of 960 mb only 320 mb is consumed for OS and other google background
    apps. Rest 643 mb is free. Afterall it has stock android kitkat.
    1. BATTERY- life is good even though its has 1700 mAH battery. The phone runs full day on single full charge. I use phone for gaming, browsing, social networking etc.
    2. GAMING- It has got mali 400 GPU. The same GPU what galaxy s3 has. So all games
    runs smoothly with zero lag. I tried asphalt 8, GT racing 2, N.O.V.A 3.
    3. Well camera is decent. At this price range dont expect much.
    4. The good thing is u will get latest software updates from google. Soon google will start rolling out android 5 update for this phone aswell.
    5. 2.1 gb free storage for apps. Apps are transferable to sd card.
    6. No heating issue whatsoever.
    7. It has got a sharp 4.5 inch display. Viewing angles are good.
    8. No OTG support. That’s a minus point.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5


    1. Awesome Product Design
    2. Software performance
    3. Satisfactory Camera (May be somebody will disagree with me..but you can’t except a DSLR like quality from a phone).
    4. Awesome Display
    5. Awesome Pre-installed Apps


    1. When you remove the back cover you can find there just some tape (looks like black tape) under the power & volume switch..
    2. Battery (I’ve fully charge it by night at the end of noon it’ reduce to 48%, may be my fault..I don’t know)..I think all android one developers (Micromax, spice, karbon) have to concentrate on it..
    3. sometime heats ups…

  3. Rated 4 out of 5

    I bought this phone from flipkart and using it happily.

    So, First of all you have to keep in mind that this phone is Google’s front end budget phone ‘Android One’ which comes from three manufacturer namely Micromax, Karbonn and Spice. I bought the Micromax Canvas A1 though there is absolutely no difference among these three android one devices. This phone comes with stock Android Kitkat 4.4.4 which is upgradable to next versions of android OS. ‘Stock Android’ means pure Android which does not come with any third party GUI and apps. Only Google’s official apps are there. And the users will get a pure android UI experience.

    Second, I want to mention the pros of this phone. This phone is absolutely amazing with its specification and performance compared to other phones in this price range.

    1. This phone looks nice, Its slim and sexy. 🙂
    2. This phone is very smooth and super fast. There is no lag during playing games like Asphalt 8 Airborne, Fifa14 etc. This phone gives you even better experience than Moto G because I used both phones.
    3. The ram management of this phone is very good and as this is a stock android the ram is not wasted for the third party UI.
    4. Over 2 GB space is there in the phone for installing apps only.
    5. The camera is very impressive. You will get a 5mp camera with 2.4 mp front camera. The camera has auto focus technique and some features like lens blur and photosphere. These features are very interesting. In this price range you cannot expect more than this.
    6. As I said earlier, you can upgrade to next versions of Android OS.
    7. There is no heating issue.

    Third, now I want to mention some cons of this phone. As this phone comes with stock Android there are some unavoidable steps for the users after buying the phone. This may seem a little bit weird to the general users.

    1. There is no file explorer in this phone. So you have to download a file explorer like ES file explorer at first.
    2. You cannot take photo or share anything without a memory card. Because you cannot store anything in the phone memory. The phone memory is reserved for installing apps only.
    3. You cannot share .apk files over bluetooth.
    4. If you want to share your internet through the wifi from your PC or Laptops by some wifi hotspot apps, you can’t connect to it from your phone for some security issues. However, you can share your internet through wifi router.
    5. The battery is 1700 mah, So, it is not enough for a full day. You will get 10-12 hrs of backup for normal use from a 100% charged battery.

    But, still I will say that this is a very good phone at this price range. You can’t get better than this.

    After using it for 5 Days!
    1.Excellent built quality
    2.Got almost all sensors including gyro.
    3.Pure google experience
    3.Good sound quality but headphone sucks
    5.Incredibly powerful(can play almost every single app and game available on the market)
    6.Decent enough camera quality.
    7.Brand name is google when we go through the details and micromax is the manufacturer.
    8.2 years guranteed update from google!
    9.Kitkat experience feels so good. okay google command works awesomely!
    10.Antutu benchmark of 18867 is good enough and you are getting 500 mb free ram even after installing 20!

    My suggestion, just go for it without any second thought! It is a nice phone with premium quality features and built!

  9. Rated 4 out of 5

    I have purchased this handset for my sister-in-law at very reasonable price. It will make you jealous to see this handset on other person at so cheap rate.
    Now Pros and Cons of this is as follows:
    1. Touch Quality is very good.
    2. Both Camera are awesome
    3. Performance is very good.
    4. Slim and Handy
    5. Its software technology is mixture Xperia M and Moto E.
    6. Flash Quality is very good
    7. KitKat and upgraded software is installed.
    8. Battery Back is as usual like smart phone or as said in the specification.
    9. Torch option is given.
    10. Sound quality is very good.

    1. All Apps are required to be install.
    2. Prior to install all apps the system need upgrade for 470 MB at 3G speed. So before you use please check you data plan.
    3. Phone is required to format after up-gradation.
    4. Sound quality for Music or Mp3 or Songs played over head-phone though surround sound technology is there.
    5. No home page can be created. You have drag app shortcut to either side of the screen to create a home page.
    6. No tethering with pen drive.

    But overall I will suggest you to go for this handset. It is good till now. If anything happens in the mean time I will definitely update my review.

  10. Rated 1 out of 5

    Battery backup very bad
