Micromax today launched the Micromax Dual 5 handset in India. This Snapdragon 652 powered handset packed with AMOLED screen and 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Overall a good handset but the price OMG Rs. 24,999.

Micoromax Dual 5 Camera

Micromax Dual 5 comes with 3 x 13MP camera. So there is 13MP + 13MP (f/1.8) camera on the back and 13MP on the front. All cameras come with SONY sensors. The back camera is Monochrome + RGB camera. It will stitch pictures together and you get excellent output (depth of field etc). In dual camera you get Bokeh mode, low light mode, night mode, anti haze, pro mode, light painting etc. The camera can shoot 4K videos and 3D videos too.

This is a dual Hybrid SIM handset that supports 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB Type C port, IR sensor and FM radio. A 3200 mAh battery powers up this smartphone with quick charge 3.0 support.

Micromax Dual 5 will be available on Flipkart from 10th April, for Rs. 24,999. I was expecting under Rs. 15K price tag, and was planning to buy one for the review, but not worth it. Cool 1, Honor 6x are way better with dual camera technology. If one has to spend Rs. 24,999 they would as well go for OnePlus 3T.

If I get this handset for review I will do it, but I am not going to buy this handset because after buying for Rs. 24,999 for review and hardly using it, I guess I will have to sell it for the price that customers were expecting Rs. 11,999.

    1. Koi nahi lega bhai….. If they keep the price @12999/- then only we can think to buy…RIP Micromax.

  1. I think 13,333 would have been the right price…. As it has 13 MP x 3 camera…. Hahaha…

  2. Micromax is well known for their poor after sales service, also their batteries are a not reliable. We are unable to get original batteries for Micromax sometimes even in their service centers. Also there is bloatwares installed in their phones. There are adwares installed in the phone which eats your data and shows so many unwanted ads everywhere with which we most times think of throwing our phone.

    1. this matter is also applied with moto, lenovo xiaomi etc everyother brands…i m feeling guilty after buying moto g4 plus…battery is not par, camera lens got stratched cervice center is charging 2200 just for glass, charger stoped working and again service center is charging 2500, i didnt get any solutions from moto yet, but i got solutions from mmx for yuphoria

  3. Whatever earned in past micromax may loosing by launching at premium devices at double price initially,which has no takers, people nowadays wants these at bellows 12000 only as gogi said

  4. Even now a days if you add Rs.4000 on this Rs.24999 you will get ? Iphone 6 ….
    And see Micromax is doing really worthless….

  5. But Micromax services center provide very poor service total wast of money. I faced last 7month in warranty period.

  6. Gogi, I won’t give you more than 10k now its your decision whether to buy for me or for you.. :v

    1. 🙂 Also If I don’t get handset and if I buy a handset for review (to sell it off later after the review) it clearly means there is a demand.

  7. Its Not A great move by MMX … When I saw The news about MMX dual5 , I had Thought that the price will be Under 15K (14999) ..

    If the Price will be under 15K , It should a remarkable sale on flipkart and best buy too….

    Its also true that They are giving A Lot of specs, But when A Company Like MMX want to capture The current market with their new product they must have to Maintain a Perfect fit(Budget) into buyers pocket….

    I was also planned to buy ths,, But The price is toooo high… Actually I m using LeEco Le1S and wanted to upgrade it with MMX’s Dual 13MP … But i am sad…. It would be great if The price was under 15-16K
