phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 2 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Unique design
  • Good build quality
  • Light-weight
  • Comfortable for one-handed usage
  • Nice display - crisp, vibrant colours, good viewing angles
  • Android interface with Micromax customizations
  • Good speed/performance
  • Good primary (back) camera
  • Excellent secondary (front) camera for selfies
  • Good bundled headset
  • Good loudspeaker

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Cutout for one of the SIM slots doubles up as the microSD slot, which means that if you choose to add more storage space you will have to forego the Dual-SIM capability of the phone
  • Comes bundled with a lot of bloatware
  • Average battery life
