Best Price: Rs. 3,449
Display, Processor and OS
The Micromax Bolt A59 comes with a 3.5 inch multi touch TFT Capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. It runs on Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS and derives power from a 1GHz Cortex A5 Single Core processor. The processor takes assistance from a 256MB RAM and the Mali 300 GPU.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The 2MP camera at the back is accompanied by an LED flash and digital zoom support. The Bolt A59 also comes with a 0.3MP camera at the front. The 512MB of internal memory can be expanded up to 16GB using a microSD card.
Battery and Connectivity
A continuous power supply is guaranteed by the 1500mAh Li-ion battery. Connectivity options loaded in the device appear in the form of GPRS, Bluetooth, microUSB port, EDGE and Wi-Fi. Absence of 3G could be a deal breaker for some.
The Micromax Bolt A59 is a budget device, focused mainly on core features to keep the price in control. While inclusion of Jelly Bean at this price is appreciable, a low RAM might spoil the show when multi tasking. Cameras are good only for basic photography requirements. Presence of an LED flash and front camera are again great add-ons considering the price tag. Overall, its a good option if you want a basic Android phone which is light on pocket, and not obsolete at the same time.
