Micromax Andro A60 Review

Overview

One of the Best Micromax Phones

Micromax Andro A60 is a beautiful, stylish and very useful phone by Micromax.

Micromax Andro A60 Design and Build Quality

The unique paddle like shape of the phone gives it a very contemporary look however; the body is made of very cheap plastic, which is a turn off. The 2.8-inch screen has a TFT resistive touchscreen. The phone weighs 105 grams and has the dimensions of 106.8x59.2x14mm. The phone has a 5-way navigation pad, start, and end keys on the side. The phone’s battery has a four-hour talk time and 240 hours standby time. The phone is comfortable to hold but if you have sweaty hand then it becomes a little uncomfortable to use.

User Interface and Comfort to Use Micromax Andro A60

The phone runs on Eclair (Android 2.1) software and has a 600MHz processor. The phone’s internal memory is 150MB, which can be extended up to 32 GB using a Micro SD card. The phone has a TFT resistive screen with 320x240pixle resolution. The touch screen of the phone requires quite an effort to get the apps works i.e. you have to actually press hard in some instances to gain access to a program. In bright sunlight is it very difficult to see the screen of the phone and it actually puts a strain on your eyes. The QWERTY, Semi QWERTY, alphanumeric and predictive text input keyboards are not very comfortably placed and you cannot type quickly on them. Swype like software is given in the phone but the word prediction of the software is nowhere as good as that of Swype.

Telephony and Phonebook

The usual call log and phonebook facility is available on the phone. Voice dialling feature is available on the phone. As far as call quality goes, the phone does have some good features such as noise suppression and the call volume is loud and clear but on hands free, the call voice breaks and the other caller can also not hear the voice correctly. The phone only supports dual band operations whereas even the average basic phones in the market support four band operations. The phone supports both 2G and 3G operations.

Messaging and Emails

The phone has SMS, MMS, Email, and instant messaging features. Typing messages on the phone is by no means a happy task. The keyboard is has closely placed keys and the resistive touch screen does not make it any easier to use.

Gallery, Photo Viewer and Video Player

The phone does not have any special features when it comes to viewing gallery options but the 600 MHz processor makes it a breeze to access the apps or play games. The video player is multi format. The playback quality on the screen is not very sharp but you can watch small videos on it without any strain.

Micromax Andro A60 Music Player and FM Radio

Unfortunately, the phone does not have a FM radio, which is a big minus considering the price of the phone. The music player of the phone supports multiple formats. The sound of music is average but if you are a music lover then this phone does not offer many options. The sound from the earphones that come with the package is very low quality.

Micromax Andro A60 Camera and Image Quality

The phone has a 3.2 MP back camera with auto focus, smile detection and no flash. The auto-focus of the phone is no good and the pictures do not turn out to be crisp even in the board daylight. The absence of flash makes night pictures very grainy. Photo resolution is 2048x1536pixels. The phone has 3G capability but lack a front facing camera pinches because you cannot make voice calls.

Video Camera and Video Quality

The video camera of the phone is very basic with simple record function. The video quality is passable at its best.

Micromax Andro A60 Connectivity Options

The phone has Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS, USB, and Bluetooth as connectivity options. The connectivity through the phone has a decent speed. Bluetooth on the phone is not very fast but you can transfer a number of files easily.

Organiser and Other Utility Tools

The phone has Alarm, calendar, calculator, and basic organizer. Other utility tools can be downloaded from the Android marketplace easily.

Web Browser and Applications

The phone has a WAP browser. Facebook, Gmail, Google Search etc. applications come preloaded in the phone and rest can be downloaded from the marketplace. The phone does not have an inbuilt Google talk client, which we found to be very strange since it has all other Google applications.

Google Maps and GPS

The phone has GPS and comes with Google maps. The GPS of the phone is not very fast but if you are not in a hurry then you can use it.

Value for Money

The phone is priced at INR 6500 (approx., may vary) in the India market, which is a very affordable price.

Verdict

On comparing the price, features, and performance of the phone, we would say that the phone does not quite make the cut.

The phone is too good. Its cheap and fully loaded with features but only one thing is bad. That it has no official update but no need to worry. Now you can update this phone to froyo, gingerbread.

Micromax A60 is the cheapest android phone in market come with attractive price and unique design. If you want to click picture with Micromax A60 then you need enormous light like you are taking picture in photo studio otherwise color goes vanish.

Micromax q3’s 1.3 megapixal camera even better than 3.2 migapixal of Micromax A60. Camera quality of A60 is simply pathetic… from Micromax A60 you can only surf internet from your phone, apart from gprs nothing you will get worst camera ever and low grade music quality!! I

F ANY ONE WANT THEN HE/SHE SEND MAIL TO [email protected] I WILL SEND SNAPSHORT OF PICTURE WHICH I HAVE TAKEN FROM MICROMAX A60 AND Q75…..

Its now been 2 months using this A60, and i haven't faced any problem. Evey thing is perfect, up-to mark. Smooth Touch, Good Processing speed, Preloaded applications, will go handy real soon. Music quality is good on micro phones and as well as on speaker. Good camera quality but only in day light.

As we know it comes with 2.1 android and with 600mhz processor. This is the best part too much is coming in too less price. The only cons or say what i dont like is battery backup. As for the normal user it is okay, for listing music, chat etc. but for a user like me it is very less. chat, music, video, web, games applications etc. consumes a lot of battery as we cant expect more form 1280 mAh Li-ion Battery.

So, in the end better go with this mobile. U will love it !
