The Celkon Millennium Power Q3000 arrives with an acceptable camera performance possessing an 8 MP main camera sensor that is teamed up with LED flash for better low-light photography. This camera is paired with a pretty basic 1.3 MP front-facing shooter that can make video calls and click selfies. This camera sounds decent enough in this price range and sounds average on paper.

The smartphone bundles 4 GB of internal storage capacity that can be expanded externally up to 32 GB by means of a micro SD card. The inclusion of 8 GB of storage would have made the Celkon phone a better offerings as there are only a few devices with such storage options in this price bracket.

A 1 GB of RAM joins the processor in delivering superior multi-tasking capabilities. This combination of raw hardware makes the device capable of executing instructions faster and thereby renders faster performance.

The battery on the smartphone is an impressive 3,000 mAh unit that should be capable of pumping in a decent backup enabling the handset to last for a day. Moreover, such a huge battery adds more sense to its name and makes it one of the few smartphones available in the market with best battery life.

Display and Features

The Millennium Power Q3000 comes with a 5 inch display packing a FWVGA screen resolution of 854×480 pixels.

Hence, this smartphone could be little pixelated with not much clarity though it will be suitable for basic tasks.

As mentioned above, the device is fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and it packs connectivity aspects such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G and GPS.

  1. The huge battery capacity would probably add to the dead weight of the device and if the company has used a low weight battery, it is definitely a good device in its price range and inn its later versions, if the RAM is enhanced to 8Gb, probably, it its price range, this device could stand top.

  2. I have purchase this phone just two days back and the problem i am facing is that it vibrates while typing in whatapp, facebook, email and other apps. because of this my battery is consumed a lot. what i want to know that how can i turn off this feature from the phone as i tried a lot but i am not able to do so. please help me.

    • Go to language and inputs in settings. on the right side of the keyboard you are using, there will be a settings options, select it and uncheck vibrate on touch
