With the TFT LCD display of Onida G242, you get higher resolution without making concessions on the battery life. A resolution of 320x480 pixels is provided by this smartphone. A TFT LCD display is offered by this device. This Onida G242 bids sharp picture quality with its LCD display for an amazing viewing experience. It would be a tad difficult to stick with the phone as its display size falls below 2.5 inches despite the portability. An approximate 2.4 inches of diagonal display is sported by Onida G242.


The battery technology in this smartphone is Li-Ion.


Megapixels are not the sole determiners of the quality of your images and videos. You are able to get surprisingly good results even with a 1.3 megapixels camera when the sensor is of good quality.

This phone is a strict no-no for those who use complicated apps,but basic functions do not pose a problem. Only basic utilities are able to be satisfied with such a low internal memory. All your images, videos, music and books can easily be accommodated in the 8 GB extendable storage offered by this Onida G242; this entire space is available for storage unlike the pre-loaded internal storage.

Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality.

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 Onida G242 is. I won't worry about the other features in the Onida G242 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The tiny memory of this Onida G242 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 Onida G242 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 Onida G242 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Although I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming, the 1.2 GHz is not that bad an option. 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 Onida G242 was its 2.4 inches display. The screen size of the Onida G242 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The 1.3 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. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The small 0.256 GB internal storage of the Onida G242 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage if it can't contain all my media files.
