Go through the specifications and let us know what draws Micromax to do this


Consider you have additional 16 GB RAM and you have two PC’s, one having Intel Celeron processor and the other with Intel i5. It’s obvious that you will add the RAM to the i5 processor so you get more firepower. But Micromax seems to have got the equation completely wrong with the release of Micromax Bolt Q3001.

Micromax said that Bolt Q3001 won’t be launched in India and is meant for international market. Go through the specifications and let us know what draws Micromax to do this.

Micromax Bolt Q3001 Specifications

The main highlight of this crap is 1.2GHz Spreadtrum SC773 quad-core processor coupled with 4GB RAM. Though high RAM guarantees lag free experience but the processor also needs to be powerful. In Micromax’s case, it’s exactly the reverse with the processor being quite outdated.

To make things worse, the Micromax Bolt Q3001 comes with a 5MP sensor at the rear and a 2MP sensor at the front of the device. The phone has an inbuilt storage of 32GB, expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB). The phone runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1.

By now you might have decided to leave this page, but there’s even more. Micromax Bolt Q3001 has tonnes of pre-installed apps Askme, Chaatz, Clean Master, Dr. Safety, Hotstar, Housing, News Hunt, Paytm, Quickr, Snapdeal, and Reverie. So there’s a valid point why Micromax has bundled 4GB RAM.

The phone has just 1400 mAh battery and Micromax claims 200 hours of standby time. Connectivity options include EDGE,2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and FM Radio. Onboard sensors include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor.

Regarding the price, Micromax still hasn’t revealed about it.

Savvydroid’s Take

The phone sucks on paper itself, with so many alternatives available from Swipe and Intex .Buying Micromax Bolt Q3001 is total waste of money. We don’t expect much from Micromax these days, but they should have used at least MediaTek processors.
