Within hours of being spotted online, Micromax A72 Canvas Viva smartphone is now available online in the country. Carrying a price-tag of INR 6,999, it has been priced much-higher than we were expecting. Apart from the 5-inch display on the phone, there is hardly anything that is going to excite the consumers.
Micromax Canvas Viva packs just 256MB of RAM. There is no 3G connectivity, so you get only 2G Edge support on both the SIM cards in the phone. Even the Android version pre-loaded on this phablet is outdated, as neither ICS nor Jelly Bean would be able to function properly in such low amount of RAM.
Among other features, the phone packs a single core 1GHz processor, 110MB of internal storage with microSD card slot. On the imaging front, there is a 3MP rear camera and 0.3MP front camera. Micromax A72 also packs Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but there is no GPS.
By pricing the phone considerably high, Micromax has made it easy for the consumers. If they wish to purchase a budget phablet, they can just spend extra 2-3K and choose from many of the better devices including Micromax’s A110 or A101 phones. Various other manufacturers too have interesting devices in this price-bracket.
