Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 A102: Is it worth the Rs 8,500 price?

The Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 has been released and the successor to the other Doodle devices strictly refrains from burning a hole in your pockets. In spite of being fitted with a huge display capable of offering a multi-touch real estate of 6 inches, it quotes an affordable price of Rs 8,500. And no, it does not compromise on important features either.

So if a huge touchscreen is your priority and you are not too keen on shelling out an insanely high amount for the same, you should take a look at the features and specifications of the Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 listed below. And once you have gone through them, get back to us with your views and opinions. Here goes.

Display:

Like we mentioned above, the phone flaunts a 6-inch touchscreen which is huge enough to watch movies and sports. You can expect this FWVGA display to deliver visuals in 854 x 480p resolution.

Camera:

Needless to say, the Doodle gadget brings dual cameras. Its 5MP rear snapper tags along features like auto focus, LED flash, digital zoom and others. You can use it for recording HD 1280 x 720p videos too. And on the front side, you get a 0.3MP webcam which should come in handy for video conferencing purposes.

OS:

And here’s another phone from Micromax which rocks the Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 OS. You will be disappointed to know that absolutely nothing has been mentioned about a software upgrade to one of the later versions of the platform.

Processor:

It gives the quad core processors a miss and is instead powered by a dual core MediaTek MT6572 SoC which can clock in a maximum speed of up to 1.3GHz.

Memory:

The Canvas Doodle 3 employs 512MB of RAM which should be able to support the chipset with multitasking and ensuring smooth navigation. And when it comes to its internal storage, you get 4GB ROM out of which 1.27GB is for app installations and 704MB is for your data. But don’t worry, it can be expanded by up to 32GB using a microSD card.

Battery:

Coming to the battery life of the Micromax phone, it employs a power pack of 2500mAh capacity which claims to cough up the juice for standby time of about 260 hours. It can provide talk time of up to 9 hours on a single charge, says the company.

Other features:

Most of the common connectivity attributes such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, a USB port and an audio jack have been tossed into the mix. And an array of applications like M!Live, M!Doodle, GetIt, Kingsoft Office, Opera Mini as well as games such as Rope Cut, Jelly Jumper and Marbles have been pre-loaded on the dual SIM phone as well.

Conclusion:

So this is what the Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 is all about. And going by the specifications of the phone, we feel its Rs 8,500 price tag is completely justified. However, if you are a heavy smartphone user and wish to get a large screen and fast mobile companion, then we would suggest you to go for a quad core handset, instead of this Micromax contender.
