All in all it is a good budget phone worth to buy . As you know Micromax delivering good quality products at low price so one can hope that they will get a decent quality of hardware as compare to other companies within same price range.Battery is not that much powerful that it should be ,Because 4.5 inches screen is big enough and consumes battery at higher rates as in the case of Canvas A1 which has almost identical specs(4.5 inches screen and 1700mAh battery) . All canvas A1 users is having same problem everyone is saying that they need to recharge their phone every 3 hour if they use Internet.
