      Though what you are saying is true for other brands, I have seen that Micromax’s Android Implementation is much better than the other chinese brands, I am guessing they would pull it off nicely

        MM just imports chinese top end phones which copies of mainstream phones.,,this one looks like HTC one knockoff…

          Micromax’s Android implementation? There is no such thing like that. It’s just Micromax’s phone importation from China!!!

          HTC? Even an iPhone is assembled in China. That’s not the point I am trying to make. I don’t have an issue with Chinese phones. I have an issue with what Micromax does. It picks up a phone that is already being sold in Chinese markets adds a few crappy custom apps and represents that it manufactures phones in India.

    for everyone who is bitching about no expandable memory, tell me why does humanity have drop box, google drive, sky drive etc and 0.98 GB is available for apps but we can always install bigger apps and games in internal SD card, problem solved, after all 50% iPhone customers buy 16 GB version i think you can relate things right

    • Ratnadeep Gaikwad
      October 25, 2013 at 7:46 pm

      I am not an Iphone user heck I can afford one and that is the main reason I want to buy a micromax phone.
      And again you need an amazing internet plan to use an online storage, In india I don’t think there are any great internet plans, atleast no affordable ones

        Media tek turns is actually very better than the processor that Samsung is providing for its 20k phones that’s broadcomm… Media tek is much better than that that’s y Samsung will also start making media tek powered phones very soon

    micromax has gone crazy…rather than providing new devices each nd everyday with same lazy mediatech processors they should focus on building devices with better processors like snapDragon Qualcomm processors…with awesome build quality like Sony htc nd apple…plsfocus quality rather than quality

      If mmx builds phones with… Snapdragon and other better processor then obviously its price will be higher… And no one will buy high cost phones….. From mmx… But I think they should make nvidea tera 3 chipsets phone’s….

    mmx is doin blunders in launching new phones, 1st doodle2 den turbo.. 20 k for 12.47 gb only for user data!! 2000 mah battery sucks dis days, 0.98 gb ram think about high end games? n no sd slot too !! instead of paying jackman they could hav made a better phone. by including sd slot n increasing battery life…buying 20k phone with only 12gb running space not worth !!! giving a goood resolution n cant experience in games..bad idea..!!!

    • Naveen Kumar
      October 25, 2013 at 12:29 pm

      @mohammedasad:disqus ram is 2gb .98gb is the space available for apps.
      u can always install big size games in internal card.Though i agree with you they should have provided expandable sd card slot and better battery backup as it has 1080p display

        Have you gone nuts brother by comparing mmx turbo with nexus 4.. Nexus 4 is a true beast and a great value product. It can smoke out mmx turbo in every aspect except in resolution. And tell me if it can give android updates on 1st day of new android version release as Nexus can. Its simple go for nexus by paying 3000 Rs extra and you will never regret buying it over mmx turbo.

    Though the aluminium body, 2gigs of RAM and full HD screen are great at this price point but a 2000 mAh battery for a device with full HD screen wouldn’t last for five hours. I can’t understand why Micromax is compromising in one aspect or the other with all of it’s device. I mean a device with this specs and 2600 mAh battery or likes would be groundbreaking and worth buying even if the price is higher by 1k or so!

    • Aryan Pratap
      October 24, 2013 at 8:36 pm

      why they r not increasing there processor from quad core…and ram of 2gb….i m not complaning only saying…becoz i m a huge fan of micromax canvas all series

      • Karan Khurana
        October 24, 2013 at 9:01 pm

        I don’t think the RAM is a problem. Micromax runs “almost” stock android and 2gb RAM is sufficient to handle that. The only phone that comes with a higher RAM is Note 3 at 3 gigs of RAM and that is because Note 3 has a Touch wiz coupled with 1000’s of custom Samsung features which make it necessary for the phone to have a higher RAM. Moreover Note 3 is high end premium device, so no comparison I suppose. The processor for Micromax Turbo 5 is REASONABLE. I mean it would be atrocious to ask for a better processor and higher RAM considering the price point. I am saying this because processor and RAM are amongst the costlier components but something like battery is not that expensive and could have been better without effecting the sale price of the device.

          I agree that configuration is good but i think the price is still high. Probably because USD/INR Conversions?
          Compare it to prices of Nexus 4 ( ~ 22K) or S3 (~23K)
          I also saw a news in GizChina site that Umi X2 is going to have big price drop in Nov. Overall with MTK introducing 8-Core phones with 6589T chip would get cheaper.
          Like others Micromax should look for Snapdragan/Tegra processor phone. Even if MMX could release a phone at 18-20K with S4 Pro (though this is year old processor) it could probably sell much better.

        • Karan Khurana
          October 25, 2013 at 10:09 am

          I think it’s too much to ask for. Currently the Custom Deptt. is charging a safeguard duty on all Chinese products being imported in the country. So that along with Micromax’s hefty expenditure on advertisement increase the cost. It is unfair to compare this product with Chinese devices which do not incur advertisement expense and neither have to offer service coverage in India. And neither is the comparison with Nexus 4 apt. Nexus 4 had a glass and rubberized body with a 720p screen and Turbo 5 has a aluminium body and full HD screen. Not to forget Nexus devices are marketed by google and the kind of sale Nexus has can’t be compared with this device. Having said that I do agree that Micromax needs to improve the processor but I think they are taking slow steps improving one aspect at a time so that consumers can digest the price of the previous device before they move onto next device with better specs and lesser shortcomings and of course higher price.

        dada, are you moron? nexus 4 4.7″ HD screen (768 x 1280 pixels), this is a 5″ (1920 x 1080) full f*cking HD screen with 2000mAh. canvass turbo 5 needs to power more pixels on a larger screen with a smaller battery. what the f*ck do you not understand?

          October 25, 2013 at 11:37 pm

          I was about to write the same. You stole my thunder. Lol. Needless to say I absolutely agree with you. The main difference is that. Also I want to add that Nexus 4 is equipped with Snapdragon S4 processor which has much better power management that Mediatek processors.

      to all the guys who are whining about a 2000mah battery… go n get a external portable battery for around 1-1.5k.
      I’m doing the same. n as for the storage of 12.5gb, it shud b fine for almost 80-90% of the ppl who use smart phones. u wont b keeping bluray movies in the mobile now are u??
      So stop complaining abt such things…. MMX is doing well in releasing gud phones wid nice features…

      • Karan Khurana
        October 27, 2013 at 5:01 pm

        Two issues: First External batteries for Micromax would be hard to find and random batteries could have compatibility issues
        Second: When I buy a phone I expect the manufacturer to include a battery that can make the phone last a day. A 2000 mAh won’t last a day. That’s why I termed it as a “compromise”.
        Just to clarify it’s called opinion not whining!

      because its too costly for this price range

          October 25, 2013 at 11:40 pm

          It is a 1Ghz dual core processor. Come on dude….

        • Arjit Mehra
          October 25, 2013 at 11:52 pm

          Yeah so?When such a lower spec phone can get snapdragon why not this?Snapdragon > Mediatek

        • Karan Khurana
          October 26, 2013 at 9:12 am

          I do agree that Snapdragon is better than Mediatek any day. But Micromax plays with the selling price it offers for the phone. It cannot bet upon it’s brand. Since the phone is full HD, they needed a good processor. (Not that I am saying that the processor currently used is respectable) The least of Qualcomm that could have handled this task is Snapdragon 400. Equipping that on this phone would have raised the selling price by 2k atleast.
