Micromax A65 Smarty 4.3 in a cheap Android phone with dual-SIM support. It runs on a single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex A5 chip and 512MB RAM. There's just 190MB of internal usable memory, but you can tank up media of up to 32GB thanks to the microSD card slot. It runs the archaic Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is many generations behind the latest version of Android, and there seems no mention of an upgrade to Android 4 on the manufacturer's website. Anyway, the 4.3-inch screen has a reasonable 800 x 480 pixel resolution, considering the sub-Rs. 5,000 price point. Connectivity-wise, there is no support for 3G but at least you can get high-speed internet off a WiFi network. There's a paltry 2MP camera at the back, but surprisingly there's also a VGA camera up front for video calls. A 1350 mAh battery juices the phone, and taking into account the low-end hardware, we hope it should provide moderately sufficient battery life.
