Micromax Bolt A36 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

The most successful Indian smartphone manufacturing company, Micromax, has certainly showed its mettle in the last couple of years by delivering consistent performances in terms of sales. The smartphone maker has somehow managed to tackle the tide of competition that has increased significantly in number and quality in recent times. There have been so many new entrants in the last couple of years that have applied the same strategy that Micromax had adopted when it began its journey by producing budget devices with the intention to attract a mass audience. But not everyone got success through it and Micromax has shown why it has that extra 'Xing' to get to that extra mile to work in its favor. Throughout the last few years, Micromax has also managed to build a certain amount of credibility for itself and thereby, got preference over other brands by the consumers.

The company would be hoping to get the same result for its current line of smartphones including Micromax Bolt A36. The gadget is a mid tier device that runs on Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system, which sure is quite primitive in today's time. We could have understood any version of Jelly Bean or even Ice cream Sandwich to certain extent but using Gingerbread would mean the user would miss out on loads of games and applications. Micromax is aiming to provide Android experience to the users at a very less price, which would mean cutting down on lots of specifications including the processor strength, which is of single-core Spreadtrum having a clock speed of 1GHz. With the RAM being a modest 256MB, we can safely say that for an Android device, it does not get lower than this.

The gadget has a 4 inches display, which is acceptable for a gadget of this range and after all, even the iPhone offers a 4 inches display, so we won't complain about the same. Available in the single color of Black, Micromax Bolt A36 looks neat and sober. While it is easy on the eyes, the device is also convenient to hold and carry around with curved rear panel ensuring that it fits your palms perfectly.  There is no 3G compatibility, which is a cause of concern for us since it would affect the overall web access speed of the device. The gadget is dual SIM though, which would mean that two tariff plans can be exploited - very useful for anyone who has to change cities and thus, his or her contact numbers frequently.

Operating system and UI

Micromax Bolt A36 mobile provides a 4 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen that gets a resolution of 480 by 320 pixels while its pixel density is of 233ppi. A pixel density in the low 200's is not bad at all and should give decent quality of images with proper saturation.

Other Features

There is not much to count on in the multimedia section apart from the conventional offerings of a music player and a video player. There is an FM Radio as well, which makes sure that popular radio stations can be heard. Sound quality is pretty good with the earphones but the penetration level of the earbuds is not as much as we have seen in other smartphones. 

Camera

The camera department covers both the shutters for Micromax Bolt A36 by offering a 2 megapixels primary camera at the back and a VGA secondary camera at the front. Both the shutters are weak in terms of pixel strength but are useful enough for clicking pictures and taking selfies. 

Connectivity

Internet is accessed by Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and HTML5 browser but the user should not expect lightning fast speed with Micromax Bolt A36 since the gadget is not compatible with 3G technology. There is Wi-Fi hot spot feature too, which acts as an important tool for tethering and spreading web connectivity with other devices to exploit. 

Memory

The storage capacity is quite less with Micromax Bolt A36 in the context of what an Android device is supposed to have. With 512MB of internal memory, users would have to hold back on the size of movies, games, images and songs they can store. However, things can change if the 32GB external expandable microSD card slot is deployed with full effect. 

Other Features

Micromax Bolt A36 will not have certain applications and games compatible with its software platform since the device runs on Android Gingerbread 2.3. But a lot of games like Angry Birds, Temple Run or apps like Application locker would be available. More games and apps can be downloaded onto the device via Google play store. 

Battery

With a 1500mAh standard lithium-ion battery, Micromax Bolt A36 derives a standby time of up to 177 hours whereas the talk time provided is up to 4 hours. Internet is surely going to consume a lot of power and same will be the case with multimedia activities but if other settings are toned down, then usage time can be increased. 

Connectivity

The connectivity department is not that heavy with Micromax Bolt A36 by offering USB port and Bluetooth for data transmission. There is the Wi-Fi hot spot feature for conducting tethering activities whereas Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and HTML5 browser are provided for standard Internet activities.  The device is dual SIM and supports compatible frequencies of 900 and 2100MHz for both the GSM SIMs.

Other Features

Micromax Bolt A36, when compared to iBall Andi 3.5, has a bigger screen with 4 inches for the former and 3.5 inches for the latter. Both the gadgets run on Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system whereas the processor is also identical at 1GHz. RAM happens to be of 256MB for both the devices, making them at par up till this point. The internal memory is of 512MB for both smartphones and both have the option of a microSD card slot that has a 32GB capacity.

Although, the secondary camera is of 0.3 megapixels for both the smartphones, iBall Andi 3.5 wins the race as far as the primary camera is concerned with a 3.2 megapixels support as compared to the 2 megapixels main shutter for Micromax Bolt A36. Dual SIM facility is common to both the devices allowing insertion of two GSM SIMs. Battery strength is more with Micromax Bolt A36 but only by 50mAh's with 1500mAH under its belt as compared to the 1450mAh standard lithium-ion battery featured by iBall Andi 3.5. Micromax Bolt A36 comes with Wi-Fi hot spot while iBall Andi 3.5 does not have any tethering facility.  

Other Features

The highlights of the device are as follows:

*        4 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen

*        Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system

*        1500mAh standard lithium-ion battery

*        2 megapixels primary camera + 0.3 megapixels secondary camera

Worst Phone
by Rajwinder Kaur on 2014-12-27

This phone is very slow. Takes much time to open any app.
It is difficult of those who use phone but with at least normal speed.
An android with this much price is faster than this phone.
