Micromax M2 - Hot swappable dual SIM, half-baked music phone
16 March 2011
Summary: The Micromax M2 is targeted as a music phone, but it does not fully justify this tag. Music lovers would want to stock up their favourite collections on expandable memory and being constrained to a limited 2 GB internal memory with no support for expansion is a serious drawback. Also, the playlist interface is not very user-friendly and the phone lacks dedicated volume buttons. This makes the Micromax M2 not recommended even at its price tag of Rs.
Pros: 3.5mm audio jack, Multimedia click wheel, Bundles with a stereo headset & mobile cover
Summary: Micromax has recently launched its new music phone dubbed as the Micromax M2 or a portable ipod-like mobile phone. The phone has already created a lot of buzz around the teenagers due to its sleek look, Yamaha audio amplifiers and trendy headset. The device has further caught the attention of young mobile users due to the recent round of adverts aired on the television during the Cricket World Cup 2011 and the ongoing DLF IPL matches.
Summary: With innovation as its buzz word, Micromax's M2 music phone is a great example of how the company is looking forward to deliver quality mobility solutions to its customers while taking care of specific needs as well. When it comes to dual SIM mobile phones, there is little room for any handset maker to innovate. But, Micromax seems to be an aberration and an example of it is its latest handset, the M2 .
Pros: Music playback, Display, Looks, Build quality
