    The specs of this phone matches with the price of the device. So don't expect this to b4 a revolutionary product.
    I will give you a bare minimum which every Android should have to enjoy it.
    600 Mhz processor,
    3.2" screen,
    1500 mAh battery

    Article doesn't mention battery. Which is a crucial element for an Android phone.

    Conclusion: buy it only of you want features from the exhaustive choices of apps from the market.
    But of you want an "experience" of Android, then wait for sometime, collect twice the budget and buy a good branded mobile.

    Looks very good for its price. But again with a slower processor.

    Only if, you are comfortable listening to the comment from your friends "Huh, china ka maal"
    The processor is horrible at 650Mhz, its like a Mercedes with a Maruti 800's Engine (You know what I mean?), it'll make you weep hard after a few days of use as it'll start lagging.

    Better buy a branded phone unless you have lot of money to blow.

    Brother, cheap and best never make a happy couple.
    Its either cheap, or best.
    Coz cheap can never be the best and best never comes cheap, if you know what I mean.

    I'm using Nokia 5230 wanted to buy a android set as my all frnds have ANDROID and iPhone which supports VIBER appliaction which can makes free calls anywhere in world viber to viber over 2G/3G. :) so want to know will this mobile support such apps? And i'm used to Nokia Screen resolution, it wont create any strain on EYE. but Samsung galaxy (Rs.8000 wala) screen hurt my eyes, dont know why..!! :|

    Why don't you look for other Android devices?
    Samsung Galaxy aath hazaar wala is not the only android phone in the world, is it?, there are plenty of them from HTC, Motorola, Sony etc.,
    Go to gsmarena.com and have a look at the available devices.

    I have no idea of viber as I use BlackBerry (and love it!), but am damn sure nokia will have a similar app (you may have to hunt hard for it though?)

    The only thing that's bad about Android is the battery life, can't complaint much as touchscreen batteries always suffer from loose motions, you may end up charging twice or maybe thrice in a day with your data set to 'ON' mode.

    Now, those are some harsh claims. Agree that a battery is a week point in Androids. But what you mentioned is not true.

    My phone has a 1500 mAh battery. And with the custom ROM, I get a superb battery life. Phone's cycle of full discharge is something between 24 to 48 hours depending on the usage. And I keep my data "ON" all the time.

    Still, it can't be compared with Nokia phones, for whom battery is a specialty :p
    Anyway, I already mentioned about battery life to OP in my previous post.

    even Nokia touch screen mobiles needs to be charged frequently if you keep browsing. i doubt it'll have any affect on a Nokia mobile if we keep data on. there are hardly any services running the background that will use the data connection and cause battery drain.

    The Processor of A50 is a bit less powered so the phone might not be a real ninja but at this price, the PHONE sounds is a perfect phone for people looking for low priced smart phones. Read more - Micromax A50 Android powered Dual Sim Phone

    aisha- fail on 2g and 3g is expensive...
    be ready to charge your phone everyday as micromax do not focus much on power efficiency so expect a talktime of just 4hrs...

    not always...you dont need to worry as long as you know how to tinker it out and extract best out of these mobiles.
    I myself migrated from samsung i5800(INR 12800) to Spice Mi-350N(INR 7200) and never faced any lag with it despite of 100+ apps installed already. I did use customized rom, launcher, removed system apps, chainfire 3d etc.

    Buy A75 and install custom rom

    on stock rom its pathetic but on custom rom if you hide micromax from the screen then it is equally placed to same category phones with really big screen
