    how to tweak the phone to get a 640×48- video recording?? please advise…

  • Nikhil Ravindra

    i too have been wondering about the RAM, ROM and GPU of da Micromax A70 ..finally i got something which i believe might be correct …

    CPU – MSM7227 600 MHz (ARMv6)
    GPU – Adreno 200 (it is included with MSM7227 chipset)
    RAM – 256 MB shared (160 MB Usable) (read in some article, sorry dont hve da link) but i believe it should b at least be 256mb in order to wrk wid MSM7227 chipset.
    ROM – 512 MB (again, i read dis in some article on the internet [not confirmed] as it was a third party website)

    Source: – (confirms CPU n GPU information)
    PS: I have come to conclusion via above Article. Please correct me if i am wrong.

    what has happened to Bharat Nagpal ?why the hell he is not uploading the full review…

  • Fox Pylon

    This was an email I got back…

    Hi Govind,

    I don’t believe the Micromax A70 has Android Market pre-installed. You should be able to tell which Android phones have Android Market by looking at the online or in-store specifications for the devices.

    …oh dear.

  • Rias

    what about the ram and gps.will you please review the features in a clear video.i am confused to buy galaxy pop and micromax a70.will u pls help me to choose

    • abhay shiravanthe

      there aren’t any rams on this phone, but micromax a70 do support A-GPS. with A-GPS along with google maps;this phone is best buy in such an affordable price. It has 600 Mhz processor with no RAM and 168 Mbs internal space.

      • Rias

        Actually this arises to me.i ask micromax customer care and enquire abt ram they told512 mb ram .

  • Gopikrishna

    Ive got a sad news to all whose gonna buy this phone as Ive contacted the customer care and visited the dealer in calicut to have a look and what i got about it is pretty sad.


    1) The phone does not support 3G Based video calling
    2) The camera in front is just for taking pics around
    3) The secondary camera cant even help for video calling in Skype etc
    4) The OS Froyoga (Froyo 2.2) cant be upgraded to Gingerbread (2.3)

    Am a little disappointing in these but still its worth the money we spend…

    • Video calling may not be supported because only android 2.3 supports video calling using skype/gtalk. Android 2.2 doesn’t support video calling using skype/gtalk

    • Ashu

      ya ur true but u can video call using fring..

  • kiran

  • chandu

    i m confused between micromax A 70 and LG optimus one.

    which phone should i buy ???

    • sood_sameer

      Go for LG Optimus One..

      • Lalitkates

        LG Optimus one

        • chandu

          why for optimus one ? whats the major difference between these two,coz optimus one is about  Rs 2k more costlier than A70

        • KickAss

          go for a70 as it has vanilla froyo. lg’s launcher sucks big time and the phone itself doesn’t feels smooth as the a70. also a70 has a 5mp cam along with a front facing cam as well and will be upgraded to gingerbread whereas lg’s still not updated even though the phone is almost a year old.

      • chandu

        why for optimus one ? whats the major difference between these two,coz optimus one is about  Rs 2k more costlier than A70

    • my friend has already bought the A70. It’s superb. If bought for 6.6K from Letsbuy, it’s definitely more than worth for the price. 

      • nagasubramanian

        Hey bharath can you tell me about the camera quality of micromax a70? Please i am dying to buy it friend… please do reply as soon as possible to this mail id man.

      • sameer kapoor

  • kiran

    • are u sure it doesn’t support video calling?? Then whats the use of front camera…

      • kiran

        Yes….and micromax said that it cannot be upgarded to 2.3..i am also dissapoint when i heard abt it

      • kiran

        use of a front camera for skype, fring…

      • Sachchitck13jgd

        i think it can………

  • Sandeep K

    There is ambiguity regarding Rom and RAM of Micromax A70. 

     Pls make it clear how much those values are. 

    Waiting impatiently for the full review. If the design meets the performance of this phone then it is going to be a new history in Indian phone arena. 

  • Lalitkates

    sir, pls give full specification as soon as possible cos i really want to buy this one

  • Chandrabhan kewlani

    what about a-GPS

  • Aditya

    Love you Bharath..

  • kiran

    Big question guys..It has a front camera but does it possible to make videocalling on 3g?

  • Just miss! My friend ordered the phone yesterday only. Had been waiting for your review for such a long time. Fed up and ordered it in letsbuy for 6549/- (after discount of RCOMLB1). Hope the display, camera and battery are good. Those are the only things, that i’m concerned about. BTW, in your specs, you haven’t mentioned anything about RAM, can you check the RAM and tell us…

    • In the video, you had mentioned the resolution as 320×240, is that a typo? All this time I was thinking that it had HVGA resolution (specs in gsmarena and other websites)

      • Aashish

        can u plz check and tell whts the ram & rom size plz yaar

  • Deviakshay076

    plz give full review

  • could u please review on whether the hard button can be customised or is only for home
    coz no use for 2 home buttons

  • Kartik2kartik

    Please tell us about the GPU of the A70. Ang weather the front camers support video calling or not.

    • Since it has the MSM 7227 soc, GPU would be Adreno 200 (as in Nexus One/Desire).

      • vijayabaskarank

        Hi Bharath Nexus one and desire are using QSD8250 Chip set. It is the chip set used in LG Optimus Me, Samsung Galaxy Fit, Samsung Galaxy Mini, Samsung Galaxy 551, LG Optimus Chic, ZTE Blade, HTC Legend, HTC Gratia LG Optimus one P500and it belongs to ARMv6 processor. So it will not support flash

        • @vijayabaskarank:disqus- oops! I didn’t mention that Nexus One / Desire is having MSM7227. What I meant was, they are having the same GPU Adreno 200 as the A70. And A70 is having that GPU as it has the MSM7227 Soc. Sorry for the misleading information. And thanks for pointing it out

        • vijayabaskarank

          Thanks for the clarification Bharath .

  • Joji mat
