Micromax Smarty A65 Dual-SIM Budget Android Phone Video Review – Specs, Pricing

Micromax has a wide range of Android phones in the Indian market, but they come up with surprising prices for the given specs and features in the same devices. This time, it is the Smarty A65 Android phone with the Dual-SIM capability from Micromax which comes for a pretty low price, i.e. Rs. 4999 in the Indian market. The Micromax Smarty A65 though doesn’t have all the high-end features in itself, the phone comes with a neat 4.3-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen but the Android operating system version is not a latest one, as Android 2.3 Gingerbread was a version which was launched more than an year ago by Google.

Micromax Smarty A65

The 4.3-inch TFT screen has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, while internally the Smarty A65 is powered by the 1GHz ARM Cortex A5 processor while we aren’t sure about the RAM included, although the website listed it as 4GB which we assume a mistake. The phone has got an internal storage of 190MB, and the external storage can be added to 32GB using a MicroSD card. The phone would come in white and black variants, and this has got a Dual-SIM capability. The Smarty A65 has for a 2-megapixel camera on the rear side with a flash, while on the front there’s a VGA camera which would assist in video calling.

With the 1350 mAh battery, Micromax claims to give a standby time of 205 hours and 5 hours of talktime. This would be the first device from Micromax having a Spreadtrum chipset in itself. Spreadtrum is the company which invested $10 million on Micromax last year, so we expect a better speed and response from the processor of the device.
The phone will have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB 2.0 as the connectivity options, and the interface is pretty simple and user-friendly having all the pre-installed Google apps and the other apps installed are Hookup, M!Zone , M!Store, Cricket Fever, Whatsapp and Facebook. When compared to the high-end device from Micromax, i.e. the A116 Canvas HD the A65 looks low on specs but the pricing is three times lesser and one can certainly go for this low-budget device if they wanted to try out an Android device with low price.
