A few months ago, the price of a feature phone in the price of a smartphone such as a living phone phone has made everyone’s attention stand on their own. This phone forced the competitors to present low-priced VOLTE phones.
Micromax India 1 is one such device that Micromax, the home smartphone manufacturer launched in partnership with BSNL. Will India be able to challenge 1 live phone? Does India 1 justify its price? Let us know the answer to all these questions in the review.
Micromax India 1 design
Micromax India 1 has a 2.4-inch display and has a forward numeric keypad. The display’s resolution is 240×320 pixels. Viewing angles are not good and colors also appear to be washed out. The phone has two buttons, a center with D-pad, call and disconnect button and number pad. Buttons are made of plastic and come with Blue Backlight. It is difficult to use the button. The loudspeaker also works with the earpiece in the phone. The handset has a VGA selfie camera on the front and a 2 megapixel primary camera on the rear.
The rear panel of the phone can be removed. There is a 2000 mAh battery. Removing the battery will show two micro SIM slots and a MicroSD card slot. India 1 has a micro-USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Like a second budget phone, a torch has been given at the top of India 1 too. The torch can be turned on when the navigation buttons hold long in the middle.

When connected to a computer, the phone automatically goes to storage mode by default, and this helps to easily transfer files.
There is only one SIM slot in the Geo Phone (Review) and apart from this there is a dual sim device in India 1. It is a dual SIM device but only a SIM 4G and VOLTE support. The second SIM will be limited to 2G or 3G networks and there is no way to know what speed you are getting. We saw that the phone works well on all network SIM cards i.e. this is not locked for any one network.
The handset has Wi-Fi support which can be used to access the internet in case of mobile data off. You can set up a Wi-Fi hotspot via USB port. You can share files with other devices via Bluetooth connectivity. The phone does not have NFC. The shocking thing is that you get a GPS but there is
