Celkon every now and then launches a device which the consumers take notice of. Budget quad cores with Android 4.4 KitKat board are gaining popularity at a pretty fast pace and Celkon has recently announced the Millennium Dazzle Q44 to join the rat race as well. It comes with a decent set of specifications and a good build quality as well. It has been priced at Rs 6,499. Let us take a quick review of its specifications:
Camera and Internal Storage
The Celkon Millennium Dazzle comes with quite a decent imaging unit for the price it asks. At the back of the device is a 5MP camera coupled with a LED flash. The front facing camera unit is a 2MP one and will be the one taking charge of vanity checks and video calling. An 8MP camera at the rear would have been welcome to separate it from the rest.
The internal storage capacity of the Celkon Millennium Dazzle is 8GB which is something we like as majority of the devices in this price range come with 4GB of internal storage. The internal storage is further expandable by another 32GB with the help of a microSD card slot present on the device.
Processor and Battery
Under the hood of the Celkon Millennium Dazzle is a 1.3 GHz quad core Mediatek MT6582 processor which is present in almost every other budget quad core device in the country. It gets mated to a 1GB RAM and we are pretty sure that majority of your needs will be taken care of pretty well without any issues.
The battery unit juicing up the Celkon Millennium Dazzle is a 1,500 mAh one which is just fine for a day. Even though we are not complaining about it, but we would have been happier if it came with a bigger battery unit as a differentiator. In this cluttered budget smartphone arena, it helps if a device is well differentiated from others.
Display and Features
The display unit of the Celkon Millennium Dazzle is a 4 inch one which has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. A bigger screen would a better resolution would have helped it stand apart from the rest but it doesn’t. So Celkon even after seeing to what the competition has on offer has just gone with a product that is similar to those.
It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat which is something we like. It comes with features like Gesture Sensor and Breath Light which are quite functional too. The usual connectivity features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, aGPS and dual SIM connectivity are present so you aren’t missing out on anything for the money you are spending.

Price and Conclusion
The Celkon Millennium Dazzle is just another device on the block like the rest but has nothing new on offer. The 8GB internal storage is one of the few differentiating factor it gets. It comes with 500MB of 3G data for 2 months for Airtel customers and has a breath light coupled with a gesture sensor. We like the fact that it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat And with the launch of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S around the corner, it might just loose out on a decent chunk of sales for its customers.
