Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

This smartphone size is anytime recommended by me even there might be a slight struggle in typing on small keypad; it is duly compensated with the ease of one-hand usage and portability. With all the advanced call management features present in the Micromax Canvas Viva A72, 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)

The alphabets on the QWERTY keypad are a bit congested, but the entire size of this Micromax Canvas Viva A72 is what I like the most. 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 Canvas Viva A72 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Micromax Canvas Viva A72 will not even last me a week. The expandable memory of the Micromax Canvas Viva A72 is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The display of this smartphone seems to be very well-calibrated and it keeps me reeled in with my gaming and 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 1 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 Canvas Viva A72 was its 5 inches display. The Micromax Canvas Viva A72 has an amazing screen size, I feel. I can type only with one hand and can easily stick it in denim pockets. Though, I personally love my videos on a large screen. The pinching movement on the screen of the Micromax Canvas Viva A72 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, 3 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 0.11 GB internal storage of the Micromax Canvas Viva A72 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
