Camera

Though it's taken over by the latest entrants, yet the Micromax Bolt A51 does feature a Yes, 0.3 MP front camera; but it is meaningless spending money on a feature that might be insignificant to you. Megapixels are not the sole determiners of the quality of your images and videos. Based on the sensor quality and the smartphone's other applications; you are able to get surprisingly good photography results even with a Yes, 2 megapixels camera. Recording videos has as much pleasure as taking pictures with this smartphone, given its pixel resolution of Yes, 2 pixels and that it equips a recording mode of Yes, 640 x 480.

Whether it is about at par is credited with or advanced is credited with like Conference Call, Hands Free, Loudspeaker, this Micromax Bolt A51 smartphone is crafted with all such is credited with in it. This phone is furnished with a Dual Sim, GSM, GSM. The wireless connectivity of the built-in Bluetooth of this phone is much appreciated in a hectic lifestyle, as it lets for instant syncing with compatible devices for file sharing and hands-free communication.

Memory

Basic functions may not be an issue with the 0.256 GB ram but it is not good enough for those who stick with their phones for more complicated apps. Multimedia FM is a refreshing change from the set loop of your playlists. A few eyebrows may be raised at the low capacity for internal memory as it satisfies only basic utilities. The Micromax Bolt A51 is absolutely compatible with the microSD, which are able to help you enhance the internal storage of the device. The expandable memory of 32 GB is all available for stick with as against the cramped internal storage which already has space allocated to default apps and other programs; now you are able to carry your entertainment in your pocket.

Performance

With the android operating system,all the latest apps and trends are at your fingertips. The Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system is the one delivering the awesome performance. This Micromax Bolt A51 boasts of a platform that performs at a frequency of GSM - 900, 1800; UMTS - 2100 GHz. Low processor frequency saves power but is not a exactly the best choice for multitasking.

Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Although the Micromax Bolt A51 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 Bolt A51, 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.

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 Bolt A51 is. I keep zooming in on many images and forwards and multi-touch makes this really easy. 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 Bolt A51 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Micromax Bolt A51 will not even last me a week. The expandable memory of the Micromax Bolt A51 is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Micromax Bolt A51 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. The multi-touch screen allows me to zoom in or zoom out during a game; also, it feels so real to flick pages of an ebook using my fingers. Reading is still fine, but gaming on a 0.832 GHz smartphone is really dreadful. 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 Bolt A51 was its 3.5 inches display. The screen size of the Micromax Bolt A51 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The pinching movement on the screen of the Micromax Bolt A51 lets me zoom in and zoom out the images. The Multi-Touch technology is too cool as I can rotate images or turn pages of ebook by just flicking my fingers. The Yes, 2 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. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The small 0.512 GB internal storage of the Micromax Bolt A51 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
