    i want to know which mobile is better micromax A70 or Samsung Galaxy pop?? 

    • Caldera911

      Galaxy pop has poor resolution and battery. A70 is the best.

  • Caldera911

    I have just bought it and it serves all I need. Wifi worked fine for me as I use corp wifi.GPS is great. Android rocks. Has very good speakers.good network reception. youtube works great. good battery life. IGyaan also mentioned that it can be upgradable to 2.3 gingerbreed (I dont worry much about it as 2.2.1 does everything for me). Video calling currently possible with Fring…with skype currently not supported. overall quality is good. Screen & touch are awesome…almost no lags with 600 Mhz processor. High ends games may have lags but I dont use them much. Overall, best budget super smart phone….no need to think twice…just go ahead and buy one. :-)
