So far I have written only good words about Micromax A100. Now, in this post I will write down all the disadvantages it has. Before I start figuring any negative point I must say it’s an affordable smartphone. You are not not only allowed to taste the power of Ice Cream Sandwich but also you can enjoy watching movies in it. Playing games is a real treat. Indian smartphone lovers have showed keen interest in giant display smartphones rather than regular ones. Single core 1 GHz processor, Aderno 200 GPU and 512 MB RAM may not be good enough to run every available games in Google Play Store but the combination can seamlessly run plenty of apps and games. This hardware combination is found in Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 which costs higher. Now, let’s take a look at the drawbacks-
Disadvantages of Micromax A100
- Display is not too impressive. 196 ppi pixel per inch TFT LCD display may raise some issues. Brightness and contrast ratio is also not too catchy. In direct sunlight it’s hard to figure out anything on display surface. Also 480×800 pixels resolution is poor.
- Night photography is poor. LED flash is not the best available in market. Camera records 480p video. At least 720p HD video recording would have been ideal.
- 2000 mAh battery may cause some issues as well. Micromax went ahead with smaller (in comparison to 5 inch display) battery size to reduce overall weight of the handset. Display cause drainage of battery more than Super AMOLED display.
- No magnetometer, proximity sensor.
- Overall dimension and weight of the handset is in higher side. It does not look that heavy in comparison to other phablets but heaver than regular size smartphones.
Well, there are disadvantages but the craze is still high. Dual core Micromax A100 will be released very soon, hopefully by the end of September. Single core model is not abundant in market because of excessive demand. In that case you either rush to your nearest brick and mortar shop or wait for the dual core variant.
