Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Kingsoft Office present in this device. I strongly recommend the Micromax Bolt A068 when it comes to easy-to-use keyboard that's small enough to pack away smartly but big enough to offer convenience while typing. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Micromax Bolt A068 that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It easily fits in my hands and I can carry it with ease; however the typing is a bit uncomfortable. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Micromax Bolt A068 with good recording features is really good for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Micromax Bolt A068, however good the other features might be. Smartphones with larger memory is always preferred by me; this phone can't even hold images and videos which I save in a single week. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Micromax Bolt A068 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I am so hooked with the immersive gaming and reading experience offered by the large and vivid display of this smartphone. Well, the frequency never bothered me so much with reading, but gaming on this 1 GHz device is a nightmare. Well, gaming on dual core is really bad with numerous hang-ups and extremely slow app load time. I wouldn't recommend such a low RAM even for the most amateur gamer; in fact for anyone. No clue what's the point of storage which can't even make enough room for my apps, leave alone my books and games. Even if your smartphone offers good amount of internal storage, extendable memory never hurts and is good to know that there's room left if you need.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 5 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Micromax Bolt A068. I think Micromax Bolt A068 has an absolutely cool screen size. It fits well in my denim pockets and I can type with one hand. Not that bad for viewing videos either, but I like to view videos on larger screens. Yes, 5 MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even use this port to transfer music and images. The internal storage in the Micromax Bolt A068 is quite stingy with the tiny 2 GB. I don't know what it is good for when it can hardly hold any of my media files.
