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
