Value-for-money phone from Micromax
Micromax Bharat 5 phone offers affordability plus style

Indian phone maker Micromax,   creates  a  truly  paisa vasool  product

December 18 2017: You don't have to spend a lot of money these days to buy  a mobile handset that is  both stylish and  more than adequately powered.  We have to hand it to Indian  brands like Micromax for  making this happen. We have been trying  out the Bharat 5 -- the latest in the  Bharat series of  aggressively priced smart phones. This one measures up to the latest 4G VoLTE cellular standard that will work with services like Reliance Jio and  provide an all - data, free voice service.

The  1 GB RAM and  16 GB ( expandable to  64 GB) storage is quite enough. The '5' in the name is there with reason: The phone has 5 MP front and  5 MP rear cameras;  a 5.2 inch HD s display and a jumbo 5000 mAh battery that, at a pinch, can double up as a power bank for other device.  

The apps include some nice tools to   cut down on  memory usage, but the default screen is  classic and clean Android ( Nougat).  They actually slashed the initial price to   go with the all-fives theme --it costs Rs 5555 and is great value at that.  ANAND PARTHASARATHY
