Expert Review of Micromax X207 Black
A decade ago it was impossible to get a mobile phone that would feature a camera, a music player and a FM radio in a single device below anything less than Rs.5000. But things have changed dramatically in the recent times and the increasing number of mobile manufacturing companies is one of the major reasons that can be attributed to that. Also for a developing economy like India, the more you get for lesser price is the kind of philosophy that will be a hit more often. It is almost like the above mentioned features that are the mundane additions to a mobile they always expect. Micromax X207 is one of the most low end devices that are available in the market with a tiny 1.77-inch display. The resolution of the screen is a trivial 128 x 160 pixels. Micromax X207 is as long as 113.2mm, along with a breadth of 47.5mm and a height of 14.5mm. Only 500 entries regarding the phonebook can be stored but for a larger collection of data like songs, games, images and videos, there is a microSD card. The memory of which can go up to as much as 8GB which is more than adequate. The presence of the camera is nice but VGA is as low as you can get for a camera as far as strength is concerned. Bluetooth and USB port are a few connectivity features in addition to the GPRS. The user can access the web through the GPRS with the WAP 2.0 browser making sure that the needed websites can be surfed. The strength of connections achieved through the Micromax X207 would not be that great. But internet is not the only way to stay entertained. There is music player making sure that the users can listen to songs whereas the video player is a great tool for watching videos but again with the minute 1.77-inch screen, it would not be of much fun. An FM radio is always a nice way for the users to stay in touch with the latest songs that the entertainment world has to offer depending upon the radio stations available in the concerned cities. With the dual standby facilities, there is also the dual-SIM facility which means one can go out of his or her city and get different number while keeping his or her old number intact. Thus both numbers remain active at the same time and are available for making or receiving calls. With a E-book reader, the user can read various online books.
User Interface and UI functionality
Micromax X207 is provided with 1.77-inch screen and a paltry resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. The alphanumeric keypad is the only way to interact with the screen but apart from that there is not much to say about the display with modest features.
MP3 and MIDI formats are the only ones that the music player provides with Micromax X207. The user can keep a collection of songs according to his or her personal needs while the video player also does the same thing for watching videos. The latter is supported by the formats Mp4, 3GP and AVI. An FM radio can record songs on the radio stations apart from providing the means to listen to the popular radio stations.
Pictures and Video quality
Micromax X207 offers a camera which is stunted by the low VGA strength. Thus the pictures produced are not the best around but there is not much to expect either at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Just like all the other VGA camera's, this one too has the camera zoom as its only assisting feature. Video recording is available too.
Micromax X207 applies the WAP browser 2.0 along with the GPRS for bringing in to play the popular websites like Facebook and Twitter. Since this is not the most powerful web set up available, downloading of data is difficult, or better yet near impossible.
Internal and External Memory
Micromax X207 offers a microSD card slot for strengthening the external memory of the device up to 8GB which would add some serious spine to otherwise deprived internal memory. Based on simply the internal memory of the gadget, Micromax X207 can keep up to 500 contact information.
Applications and Gaming
Micromax X207 is meek on games and apps with just a handful of the former and almost nothing of the latter. The user can keep himself or herself amused for a while but there nothing much to bank on here.
Micromax X207 exploits a decent 1,000mAh standard lithium-ion battery in exchange for some substantial amount of talktime and a better standby time. The user also gets to enjoy a longer music play time but video watching is rather more power consuming.
GPRS is a great source for routing through the desired destination along with accessing the web. The Bluetooth features let the users exchange songs, games, images and videos. The USB port is also an important element for connecting the Micromax X207 with computers or laptops.
Micromax X207 when compared to Intex spark has a smaller screen with the former providing a 1.77-inch display and the latter 2.4 inches. Screen resolution is also significantly more with Intex Spar. The camera is also better with Intex Spark with 1.3 megapixels whereas the Micromax X207 has a VGA camera. Both the devices have a microSD card slot with a 8GB memory capability. Both the gadgets also support the dual-SIM facility but the battery strength is stronger with Intex Spark with 1,800mAh thus providing a longer talktime and standby time.
