Ok…I happen to have bought this phone yesterday at 9800 Rs retail price…its very cheap here…Anyways…let me clear few things about the mobile:

Processor: 1 Ghz Single core
Ram: 512 Mbs
Inbuilt space: 4GB
Screen: 5 Inches (800*480)
OS: ICS (4.04)
battery : 2000 MAH
Primary Camera: 5 mp WITH led FLASH
secondry camera: 0.3 MP

Pros:
1. Owesome screen…Not very bright…colors are a bit faded at the corners….but that 5 inch screen is amazing to look onto..
2. Average processor & Ram (at this price range)
3. Amzingly good build quality….it matched HTC in the material used …it never looks cheap…atleast looks like a mobile worth 20k in hand
4. Nice performance in games…not played heavy games like batman etc..but normal games work fine
5. Screen performance very very responsive…very pleased with this..
6. camera was very good..though flash was just about PAR
7. 9800 Rs..for a 5 inch PHABLET..Man..u gotta be kidding me…
8. 2700 Benchmark test score…
9. 2000 MAH Battery which would easily last a day…

Cons:
1. Micromax for a start
2. Screen is washed off at corners..
3. Meagre processor..though its ok in terms of price..
4. Charger & Headphone look really really cheap…

My Verdict: If you are looking for an android mobile…This might just fit your budget as well as pocket…amazing mobile…Highly highly recommended…You will love it..I already hav a nexus..still i bought this one…hope u all liked my review…wink

Ok..Sorry for the delay Guyz…

@omsairam: Battery Backup…: Well cudnt do the full charge -discharge cycle as of yet…but whatever i have used..it seems to be a really nice battery…for instance: started with 74% Battery, Played games for 30 Minutes, some Music for 10 Minutes, Videos for 15 Minutes, Apps download through Wifi and surfing through wifi for 2 hours, Camera clicking and video recording for 5 Minutes, LED torch checkup for 2 Minutes, Contacts & Gmail Sync..this whole process was the first use of A100 by me…it took me 3 hours roughly for all these thing…the screen was ON for whole time during these processes at full brightness..at end of this ,y battery was showing 48%…Which in my opinion in great considering the screen size..
Viewing Angles: Viewing angles when compared to Micromax funbook(I happen to have that as well) are better. It is not that great…but definately much better than many LCD screens out there in the market…Not an issue that i see there..
Sound Quality: The Loudspeaker is Loud enough for a Mobile phone..no complaints there…Wasnt able to check the deepness in sound as i am missing my sennheiser headphone..but i heard it in my Philips headphones..the sound was above average..better then many MP3 players out in the market..

aarunn: No…as i said..the accesories are worthless…ekdum bakwaas…the headphones are normal one..but very cheap..isse acha to dete hi nahi..lolz..

@Omsairam: Wifi: its same as samsung , its weak i get a full signal in my laptop, same place my samsung nexus/S3 gets 4/5 & Micromax A100 also get 4/5 signals…
GPS: Havnt checked the route turn by turn, but tested the GPS, Located my position in less than 30 seconds…seem good…
Is it rooted: Not tested that Guyz..srry cannot help thre…

UPLOADING PICTURES of Camera: Sorry guyz..sent the camera to my GF…will ask to mail me few clicks and will upload it here…Giveme a day for that…But people..if u have 10000 rs…buy ths mobile..if u happen to dislike it i will buy it at the same prize..i am tht much sure abt ths piece…Dnt expect a Note..but u can compare it wth stupid galaxy ace plus..U will fell in love wth ths piece..worth every penny i sent on it….A BLOCKBUSTER MOBILE>…Hope i helped…Thanks

Firstly, Voted up and karma for your effort (wonder why there ain’t any green faces roll )! Thanks a lot for writing this review…It’ll help dimers to make a decision in buying this product.

I’ve heard A90 and A100 are gonna get Jelly Bean soon and i hope for the same toungueout

Off topic hai but… It would be great if you can review Galaxy Nexus also as there isn’t any review of Galaxy Nexus here and you have one! Please take your time but do a full review on that wink Thanks in advance!

Guys, I have a question: Does the camera of the A100 have Autofocus? Secondly how good is the camera quality?

My only concern is that if it does not have autofocus, the images wont be too great.

One last question: Does it have an inbuilt compass? Need to know because I would prefer to have the compass as well since it aids the maps orientation during navigation..
