Micromax has gone onto become one of the most selling mobiles brands in India. While all the buzz surrounds the latest mobiles like Micromax M2 and Micromax Bling 2, the Micromax X series continues to have some of the best value for money mobile phones. In this post we shall look at 5 of the best mobiles from this series. All these mobiles belong to Micromax mobiles below 5000.
Micromax X560: Priced at Rs. 4,237 , the Micromax X560 is the priciest mobile in this list!!. This bar shaped mobile weighs 100 grams and can house two GSM sims simultaneously. With a touch screen interface and a 2 megapixel camera, the X560 is completely worth the money. It would have been better if the touch screen were a little more responsive.
Micromax Psych: The Micromax Psych has almost all the important features of the X560 like touch screen interface and 2 mega pixel camera. The Psych has a better aesthetic appeal as well. Considering that it is cheaper by 1000 rupees compared to the X560, we recommend most people to go with the psych. However please note that the psych has a 2.8 inch touch screen as compared to 3.2 inch touch screen for X560. It does not have Wi-Fi support as well. It comes with a number of different color back covers as well.
Micromax X600: Touch screen and 2.0 megapixel camera seem to be the common minimum features for mobiles in this range. The Micromax X600 costs a little less than Rs. 4000. It is also known as Micromax Gravity because it can switch the active SIM when the user simply rotates the mobile by 360 degrees. The X600 has a 3.2 inch screen but does not have wi-fi connectivity. Micromax should have provided a stylus with the touch screen as the screen is not that responsive.
Micromax X510: This is simply the most popular mobile in this price range. The X510 Pike comes with a large number of backpanels of different colors. Like all the phones in this post, the Micromax X510 has a 2.0 megapixel camera, dual sim and touch screen. At close to 15 inches, it is one of the thickest phones in this list. However with a price tag of only Rs. 2856, it more than compensates for these minor issues.
Micromax X290: The Micromax X290 is quite different from the other four phones in this list. It does not have a touch screen. While the X290 has a camera, it is a 1.3 megapixel one. Even though the phone is available for only Rs. 1,719, it does not have most of the connectivity options. It does not even support social networking and email. So go for this one only if you need a very basic dual sim phone. Otherwise it makes sense to go for the X510.
