Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 Design and Build Quality

In its conspicuous black and white colors, the Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 comes with a 4’’ (480x800 pixels) TFT capacitive touch screen with IPS display. The phone runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and is propelled by a 1 GHz MediaTek MT6515 processor with PowerVR SGX 531 GPU. The smartphone is loaded with a 1600 mAh Li-Ion battery that gives you 5 hours of talk time on 2G. Standby Times equals to 144hrs on 2G. With dimensions of 65.5x127x9.9 mm, the phone gives a perfect grip on the hand. The Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 features a 2GB internal memory, with expansion capability of up to 32 GB, as well as 512 MB RAM and 4 GB ROM.

User Interface and Comfort Use Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0

The touchscreen performs par excellence. The fonts on the other hand are admirably sharp and so is the image quality. The smartphone has three touch sensitive buttons on the lower side of the front, making manoeuvres between apps quite simple.

Telephony and Phonebook

Phone calls are incredibly clear. The phonebook allows for unlimited entries. Call records include missed calls, dialled numbers, and received calls. The phone has 64 polyphonic ring tones in MP3/AMR/WAV/MIDI formats.

Messaging and Emails

Messaging options include SMS, MMS, emails and Push email.

Gallery, Photo Viewer and Video Player

The MX player allows you to view videos of up to 760p resolution. The Photo viewer has features that allow you to do some touch-ups on images.

Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 Music Player and FM Radio

The music player supports WAV and MP3 files. The phone also rocks a FM radio and the sound quality for both the earphones and the loudspeaker are quite impressive.

Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 Camera and Image Quality

The phone has a primary 5-Megapixel camera. The camera has features such as Flash Night Vision, Multi-shot, Brightness Level and zoom support. This pixelate is indeed ideal for capturing images, especially in well-lit areas.

Video Camera and Video Quality

The phone supports video recording. The absence of front camera however makes video calling an illusion.

Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 Connectivity Options

Connectivity options for this smartphone include GPRS, EDGE Class 12, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth v3. Additionally, the handset supports various profiles including A2DP, AVRCP, DUN, OPP, and SPP.

Organizer and Other Utility Tools

The tools include calendar, alarm clock, stop watch, file lists and a task manager.

Web Browser and Applications

The Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 comes with a pre-installed Android Google browser. Social networking apps include Facebook and Hook-up IM app.

Google Maps and GPS

The smartphone has both Google Maps and GPS Support.

Distinctive Features of Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0

The 5MP rear camera with flash ranks the phone up high in terms of image quality. The Android ICS OS also comes as a remarkable feature on the phone as well.

Value for Money

Although most retailers are currently selling the handset for less than INR 6500 (approx., may vary), the price may not appeal to 3G enthusiasts considering the fact that the phone only supports 2G networks.

Verdict

With its relatively fair price, the Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0 is a perfect fit for first time entrants in the diverse smartphone market. However, it may not give a good experience if you are used to 3G phones.
