Superb Phone @ Budget Price

First of all, I had been using MMX A52 Aisha Superphone for close to 3 months. I was very much comfortable using the same. But, when my wife’s Nokia broke down, I gave her my MMX A52. I was on the lookout for a new phone. I wanted a bigger screen size and I was looking at various options in Samsung, HTC, MMX and Karbonn.
From the reviews available online (Igyaan.in, Gadetsportal, Geekayranjith etc.) and having already used MMX A52, I booked the A110.
As usual, it was express service from flipkart. Though, I had to pay a couple of bucks extra than other online retailers, I was very comfortable with flipkart’s prompt on time service, where I buy books regularly. Booked it on 31st Oct late evening. I got the phone delivered on 3rd Nov afternoon.
Now over to the phone………
My kind of use my A110:
Lots of Emails requiring typing everyday, 1 hr to 1.5 hrs – browsing the internet daily, 30-40 phone calls a day lasting 2 hrs, Very minimal to nil movie watching, Almost nil gaming
I will first start with the Cons first….
a. One big let down, is the non availability of ambient light sensor in this phone. My MMX A52 also had the same problem. As long as you are indoors, there is no problem at all. Once out, it is very difficult to see the phone in broad daylight and the brightness needs to be adjusted constantly. This is highly irritating.
b. Since the speaker is in the rear of the phone, the ringer volume is absolutely muffled when you keep the phone on its back. I missed some important client calls due to this!
d. There is no option for rebooting the phone. Once the phone is switched off, to switch it on, it takes time to get into the groove to release the power button in time. Else, pressing the power too much sets the phone to its default mode automatically and you lose all your default settings (Don’t worry, all installed programs remain untouched).
e. After every restart, my default keyboard (Swype 1.3) changes automatically to android keyboard (But I feel the basic android keyboard is much better for larger phones as the A110 compared to Swype. But this cannot be an excuse). I am forced to change it manually every time. This was not the case with my MMX A52. Don’t know, if it is a problem with Android 4.0.4 or MMX.
g. MMX should have provided a scratch guard for this phone considering the size of the screen. I don’t see anywhere in print AGC Sodalite scratch resistant screen!
f. Pathetic earphones that has come with this phone. Compared to the A110s phones, my MMX A52 is far better!
Now the Pros….. 🙂
a. 4.94″ Screen Capacitive Touch screen is very vivid in displaying colours.
b. There are 3 capacitive touch sensitive physical buttons at the bottom which makes using the phone really easy
c. MMX has not tinkered anything at all with UI. One advantage that comes along with the 1 GHZ, Dual Core processor with an unaltered ICS UI is, the UI is super smooth and super fast. I have seen no lags what so ever.
d. Pinch to zoom is also very dependable and works most of the time without much of a lag.
e. The best part of this phone is the LED indicator. There are 3rd party apps that you can install to make the LED blink in different custom selected colours for a missed call, email received, sms received etc. The colours can be configured to specific email IDs, numbers etc. This helps me a lot during client meetings as I understand what has happened to my phone when it was put in the silent mode.
f. I am not a mobile phone camera buff. But, the front 0.3VGA as well as the 8.0MP rear (really do not know if it is so…) cameras serve my purpose when I use skype for official or personal calls
g. The default browser is good. It supports all basic functions. For people who require further enhancements, there is Firefox, Opera Mobile or the Chrome. Haven’t tried any of them yet.
h. The internal storage is about 503MB. There is also an internal SD card with a storage capacity of 2.05GB. With apps like APP to SD, you can move almost all the apps installed in the internal storage (phone memory) to the internal SD card except for a very few apps such as launchers (I run GO Launcher EX). To me this is more than sufficient and I do not find any need for any additional external sd card for my kind of use on this phone.
Haven’t run any game on this phone, so cannot comment on the performance. Run some 720p videos from youtube. They run smoothly. But no luck with 1080p videos. There is no video playback. This shows the lack of RAM (473MB).
But for normal application and usage, this phone is very impressive.
Also, the build quality and textured grip on the back panel adds up to the elegance of this device.
You get a definite look from envious people when you take it out. Many mistake it for an S3. “Neighbour’s Envy – Owner’s Pride” – Go for it, if you want a nice big phone with fantastic features at a budget price.
