Android phones in your budget

Micromax A70
Back in 2008, owning an Android smartphones was a farfetched dream, the reason being the operating system was relatively new and only the leading handset makers were releasing phones on the platform. The handful of smartphones, therefore, had hefty price tags. Things have changed down the years. Along with the big names, Indian handset companies are now looking beyond the dual-SIM devices and eyeing the Android market. As a result, we now have many Android smartphones priced under Rs 10,000. Here are a few that we think are worth their price.


One of its three offerings on this platform, the A70 comes with a 3.2-inch capacitive touch display. The decent metallic look is accompanied by the traditional Android design comprising four keys-back, home, search, options-and the Micromax branding at the top. On the internal hardware front, it packs in a 600 MHz processor, 256MB RAM and runs on Froyo, Android v2.2. In performance, this phone is neither super fast nor can it be called sluggish. ABasic connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G are onboard along with a 5 MP camera, music player, video player and FM radio. The 1450 mAh battery manages to do the required tasks for around a day and a half.
