2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good build quality

  • Tips the scales at 170g, but doesn't feel heavy

  • The side panel is beefed up with a chamfered metal frame with greyish finish on it which blends with the phone's black and grey shade very well
  • Good, large display, that thankfully doesn't smudge easily unlike other budget phones
  • Gorilla glass protection on the display
  • Near-stock Android interface, with Micromax's useful local services directory "Around" built-in
