Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Although the Micromax X490 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 X490, 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 X490 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 X490 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Micromax X490 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 X490 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. 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 X490 was its 2.2 inches display. The screen size of the Micromax X490 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. 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. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files.
