Micromax’s biggest smartphone in terms of screen size, the Micromax Doodle 2 A240 has just gone on sale via Snapdeal for Rs. 19,990. The smartphone is a rebadged Blu Life View but comes with a Micromax badge at the back. We take a look at the specifications of the smartphone and bring you an overview of this beast of a smartphone:
·Screen: The smartphone comes with a 5.7 inch IPS display screen which has a 720p display unit up front and the moment you hold it in your hand, you’ll know that it ain’t meant for single hand operations. It will provide you with one of the most enjoyable multimedia experiences.
·Operating System: Micromax has chosen to go with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for the device which is the latest flavour of Android and in all probability, the device will get the Android 4.3 update as well.
·Processor: It comes with a 1.2GHz quad core Mediatek processor which even-though a capable performer comes across as a disappointment. The smartphone should have come with a 1.5GHz quad core processor from Mediatek considering the price it will be selling for.
·RAM: It comes with a 1GB RAM that will make your work a breeze and it complements the processor pretty well.
·Memory and Storage: The smartphone’s internal memory capacity stands at 12GB. You get a microSD card slot as well to help you expand the storage capacity by another 32GB. A point worth mentioning is that it does not let you install the applications in the memory card.
·Camera: The smartphone comes pretty loaded in the camera department. You get a 12MP camera at the rear with dual LED flash which will facilitate your occasional needs, but the ones expecting it to perform out of its skin would be in for a disappointment. It comes shod with a 5MP front facing camera which will let you make video calls and do those last minute vanity checks.
·Connectivity: It gets dual SIM (GSM+GSM) functionality in addition to 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS with A-GPS in order to ensure that you are connected with others on the go with the outside world.
·Battery: A 2,600 mAh battery powers this massive smartphone which is expected to give it the juice for a little less than a day considering the fact that it is quite a big unit.
·Price: Rs 19,990
Verdict: Micromax’s latest offering may be one of the best performing devices there and it will be right up at the top in terms of real estate as well. Micromax has launched it an ambitious pricing of Rs 19,990 which is pretty much not the one that would drive customers to buy the smartphone. A better pricing would do the trick but I won’t go in for it with this price tag. Would you?
