Micromax has announced the launch a new entry level smartphone called Micromax Bolt S300. The device has been listed on sale online for a pricing of Rs 3,300. Like the other low-end smartphones, this one also arrives with Android 4.4.3 KitKat operating system. The device is likely to go on sale via the offline stores soon. We have come up with a quick review of the Micromax Bolt S300 for your reference.
Camera and Internal Storage
Bolt S300 comes with inferior camera aspects as it features dual VGA front and rear snappers. The snapper at the back is accompanied by LED flash as well. However, there are much better 2 MP and 5 MP snappers in the other devices that are priced in this price bracket and hence, this device is not a deal breaker.
The Micromax smartphone bundles 4 GB of internal storage space that is too low and this can be expanded by another 32 GB using a micro SD card. The internal storage space of 4 GB seems to be too low for the device, but it should be accepted considering its pricing.
Processor and Battery
Processor used in the Micromax Bolt S300 is a single core processor of unspecified chipset ticking at 1 GHz clock speed. The chipset also seems to be too meager as there are better dual core offerings in the similar price bracket. This processor is teamed up with 512 MB of RAM that can handle moderate multitasking.
Battery capacity is average at 1,200 mAh that is rated to pump in up to 4.5 hours of talk time and 155 hours of standby time respectively.
Display and Other Features
The Micromax Bolt S300 is given a 4 inch display with a WVGA resolution of 480×800 pixels. This screen is quite average and it should be suitable for the basic functionality without much issue.
Running on Android 4.4.3 KitKat, the Bolt S300 is packed with connectivity aspects such as dual SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and micro USB.
