yes u r correct a70 has 320x480 res. whereas galaxy y has just 240x320 res which will result in not playing most of HD games and apps though qvga versions are available.

A70 already runs gingerbread(cyanogenmod) but with major bugs like touch not working.so it is not usable.devs trying hard to solve all bugs so hope for the best.

Camera quality is not a problem.. all sub 10k androids have bad camera quality in low light conditions, if not worse..
In good light conditions, quality is fine (actually brilliant for a phone of this price)
here's a sample
When i bought this phone i knew 5 MP quality wont be as good as for say Galaxy S.. but so far, i have no problems with the camera

Yes,but I don't want to give him such idea which has no future,atleast right now.
It's his decision.phone is good but don't expect cyanogenmod or gb upgrade right now.
I have faith in my dev frnds only but I have no faith in mmx,not anymore....better to boycott such company.that's what i will do.it's individual opinion only,noone should generalize it.

Hi the best choice would be MMX A70, 75, 85 etc. This phone provides same or more features than a Galaxy dude.

Guys MMX A70 is an awesome phone. I'm using it for the past one year. No complaints no hassles. It wud be able to upgrade to higher OS soon as replied to me by Micromax company... The delay because they want to establish the particular model in the cellphone market with the OS provided by them... but soon it will be able to be upgraded....

Buddy, pls check ur phone with an authorised service personnel... However, as far as many are concerned, MmX A70 camera is the best in either light conditions compared to any other phone of this range....I'm using it for the past one year... dudes... I'm totally concerned about good pics on my phone cam being a constant traveller.... im too happy with MMX A70

SO HERE IT IS..

Like always u all starting to think about the updates only..
Hi hakukaa512 ... don't get bothered by all this.. This is all because all my friends are tired by doing everything for KERNEL SOURCE..

Here is my opinion.. A70 is good or best phone available in this price range as it gives you:
1) 3.2 inch Screen, 2) Much brighter and clear display, 3) 320 X 480 screen
resolution, 4)3G, 4) 5 MP camera is OK, 5) good Looks and great
build quality, 6) It is available at Rs 6000 only...

but at the same time it has drawbacks:
1) No software update, 2) Very very Poor service [Mine cell is at service
center since 50 days to change broken touch pad], 3) Phone cannot be
fully developed as we don't have SOURCE CODE and i think we r never
going to get it.. AT LEAST FROM MICROMAX.. .. .. .. ..



SO ITS your call to take it or not..
Extend your budget a bit and go for HTC EXPLORER for RS 8300.. .. .. .. ..
