It’s just a blatant lie! No one can achieve that long a battery life unless they interfere with normal operation of Android OS. Like alarm, calendar apps not triggering properly, music player getting killed etc…. I wouldn’t trust Micromax to come up with a technology which other big names couldn’t!!!

It is my humble request, that when giving info about the specs especially the SIM, please be more specific as to the type of SIM. Normal SIM or Micro SIM, as this can influence purchase decision of people, especially those upgrading from a basic feature phone to a full fledged smart phone. Smart phone makers if they want the next boom in smart boom offtake from feature phone to smart phones must bring twin options of phones with Both Normal SIM and Both Micro SIM & One Normal & One Micro SIM in the same handset.

Another handset with High price.
All the Micromax handset have the problem with its useable memory by not more than 1Gb, If is has the open memory (to do all things like apps or games) atleast 6Gb and really have a 24 hours battery life with to do anything then it is great otherwise fake.

I agree. Other great handset is Philips w6610 xenium with 5300 mAh battery. From a good Dutch company. Stock android with no bloatware.
