Micromax had already launched the A102 (Canvas Doodle 3) and now they have launched the same again, silently of course, with a slight improvement – 1GB RAM. The older Doodle 3 came with 512MB RAM. In case you are planning to buy the A102 make sure you get the latest one.
You can check the Micromax A102 Canvas Doodle 3 review here, the only difference now is that it comes with 1GB RAM, unless someone sells you the older A102. The main issue with this handset was the expectation, users wanted more but they got a downgraded handset and well, cheaper.
The new A102 with 1GB RAM houses the same 1.3GHz dual core MT6572 processor. It runs on Android 4.2 with 1GB RAM, 4GB storage and 32GB external card support. There is a rear camera of 5MP resolution (with flash) and front camera of VGA resolution.
Rear camera can record 720p videos. Screen is 6 inches with 854 x 480 pixels resolution and the handset also comes with magnetic flip cover with time and notification window. Battery is 2500 mAh with up to 9 hours talk time. Key features are the same i.e. 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.
Well it is still the same thing with more RAM. Additional RAM will improve performance specially multitasking but still would have preferred a better Doodle. Dual SIM Doodle 3 with 1GB RAM now available on Flipkart for Rs. 8,999.
