If using the 3G network, you might need to opt a bit conservative with the battery of this smartphone that bids only 4 hours of talk time. For heavy users, a glitch in the battery department appears as the phone only bids 5 hours of talk time on 2G network. This device possesses the popular Li-Ion battery. On 2G network, this device manages to offers 180 hrs of standby time.

Camera

With the Yes recording modes of this smartphone, and a resolution of Yes, 8 pixels, shooting video is as much fun as clicking pictures. Some love selfies while some don't; if you are in the second set, then the basic Yes, 0.3 MP front camera won't inhibit you. Megapixels are not the sole determiners of the quality of your images and videos. You can get surprisingly good results even with a Yes, 8 megapixels camera when the sensor is of good quality.

Memory

With the help of microSD memory cards, it is possible to expand the existing internal storage offered by the device. A few eyebrows may be raised at the low capacity for internal memory as it satisfies only basic utilities. The expandable memory of 32 GB is all available for use as against the cramped internal storage which already has space allocated to default apps and other programs; now you have the flexibility to carry your entertainment in your p. Lower internal RAM is usually a good thing for the battery life of your smartphone, simply steer clear of graphic intensives games and apps.

The Android v4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system is the one delivering the awesome performance. If you value your phone's battery life more than speed, then processors with high frequencies and more than one cores may not be the optimal option for you, even though they are the trend today. So, if you don't use your phone to handle many things at once, and would like to just use one task or function at a time, then this smartphone, which equips you with Dual Core processor, would be just the phone for you.

Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Although the Micromax A90S might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. With all the advanced call management features present in the Micromax A90S, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, are very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Micromax A90S is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Micromax A90S as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Micromax A90S will not even last me a week. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Micromax A90S with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Micromax A90S is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. I have my display running most of the day either because of reading or gaming. Thanks to the AMOLED display which not only offers a cool display, but even saves me enough battery to last for longer hours. I love gaming and reading on the AMOLED display of this smartphone. Reading is still fine, but gaming on a 1 GHz smartphone is really dreadful. The frequent lags and sluggish loading of games of the dual core processor drives me up the wall. Even the lowest graphics games need RAM higher than this. I dunno what good is storage which is insufficient even for regular apps and programs. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup if you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Micromax A90S was its 4.3 inches display. The screen size of the Micromax A90S is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 8 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The small 2.09 GB internal storage of the Micromax A90S feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
