Micromax provides feature phone alternatives as part of Bolt series and the latest to join the list is Micromax Bolt S300, which will be available online and offline for 3,300 INR. Without being too ambitious, the phone offers basic Android 4.4 KitKat experience to first time buyers.
There is textured design running through the front and back, and whatever remains is filled by the display glass, encompassing a 4 Inch WVGA touch screen display with usable WVGA 800 x 480 pixel resolution.
Performance will depend on 1 GHz Single core Spreadtrum SC7715 CPU with 512 MB RAM, Mali 400 GPU, 4 GB internal storage and 32 GB MicroSD support. This is rather punitive by today’s standards and is meant for very basic usage. There is a VGA front and rear camera for photography, with LED flash for the rear snapper.
1200 mAh battery has a rated maximum talktime of 4.5 hours and standby time of 155 hours. You can still access 3G speeds. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, micro-USB, and GPS. Dual SIM functionality is supported.
Other options in this price range include Karbonn S15, Celkon Campus A35K or perhaps refurbished or unboxed Redmi 1s. For now, Micromax Bold S300 is listed on a retailer, but will soon be available via official channels.
