Micromax is famous for releasing phones to market at such a low price that no other company can release such one. Similarly in Superfone lite A75 also you can find specifications that you can find only in double cost phones of other companies.

It is the cheapest android phone allowing you to make video call, currently available in market. It runs on a 650MHz processor with Android 2.3. It is a dual SIM phone also.

But the 2.8 inch screen is small and is a let down. Also the battery is only 1000mAh, which will surely question your backup as this is a dual SIM phone. Primary camera is of 3.2MP and secondary camera is of 0.3MP

      My Samsung Stratosphere has a front camera and I am very impressed with it because I consider the phone to be entry/mid level. Although I don't use video calling, I'm sure it would work great.

      Samsung released a new phone Galaxy Y Pro duos with QWERTY keypad and dual cameras with sub 10k price. Check the details.


      Sad to hear your story. But specification wise these phones look really good. But I think the flaws in your phone may be due the the fact that A60 is one of the initial models of Micromax in Android. But surely they have improved.

      It is sad that Samsung is not providing front camera in its entry level smartphones. My budget was below 10K, So I am going for Micromax superfone Lite A75
