Micromax Ninja 3 review – the Superfone Ninja A57 for Rs. 4,999

Micromax Ninja 3 or Micromax A57 is here for a price of Rs. 4,999. It started with the Ninja A50 and then came the Ninja 2 A56 and now the Ninja A57 which is better than its predecessors.

Interestingly the price of Rs. 4,999 competes with the Ninja A50 which is currently available for Rs. 4,899 and the A56 that will cost you Rs. 5,990. So what is the difference and when is the best one, let’s find out.

Design
The Ninja 3 has got more curvy edges as compared with Ninja 1 and 2. There are 3 touch sensitive dedicated buttons on the front side. On the rear side there is the camera at  center top without any flash option and at the bottom, just below the Micromax logo there is the speaker out.

On the left side you will find the volume rockers and on the right the power button. The looks are pretty decent with 11.2 mm thickness and the weight is just under 100grams (93.88 grams).

Processor, Memory and OS
Micromax Ninja 3 processor is the same 1GHz Qualcomm with Adreno 200 GPU. The memory part would need confirmation as flipkart says 256MB RAM where as Ncarry says it is 512MB RAM (Confirmed it is 256MB). Then there is the micro SD card slot that can house external cards of up to 32GB.

Sadly for the price A57 will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. There is no word about an upgrade to a higher version.

Display
Unlike the Micromax A50 (320×240 pixels) the Micromax A57 comes with a better screen (3.5 inches) of HVGA resolution i.e. 480×320 pixels with 2.2K colours? (252K). The Karbonn A7 also comes with the same resolution and is priced at Rs. 7,390 clearly the A57 will look more tempting.

Camera
The A50 came with 2MP camera and the A57 will house the same 3MP camera as on A56, better than A50 but being fixed focus do not expect much out of it. The camera features are 4x digital zoom, night mode, multi shot and video recording. There is no secondary camera.

Micromax A57 dual SIM phone

Connectivity
The connectivity features are the same i.e 3G (HSDPA @7.2 / HSUPA @5.76), EDGE, GPRS, Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS and micro USB.

Other features
The handset comes with many pre-loaded apps. The performance will be as good as on Micromax A56. There is the gravity sensor or G-Sensor, but the proximity sensors are missing.

Battery
The 1400 mAh li-ion battery gives a standby time of about a week and talktime of up to 4 hours.

Micromax Ninja 3 review
The Ninja 3 or Micromax A57 clearly seen as a replacement of the Micromax A50 model unless the A50 cost is reduced. The A57 no doubt is better than A50 and A56 and beats them when it comes to the price factor.

Finally Micromax has succeeded in bringing the HVGA resolution for under Rs. 5,000. The Micromax A57 entry level phone is here, for those budget conscious users with a better screen resolution. Go for it.

The difference Micromax A50 v/s Micromax A56 v/s Micromax A57

A50 (Ninja) A56 (Ninja 2) A57 (Ninja 3)
CPU 650MHz 800MHz 1GHz
Display 3.1 inch (320×240) 3.5 inches (480×320) 3.5 inches (480×320)

Not much difference between A57 and A56 except for the CPU, but interestingly cheaper. If you are looking for the cheapest android phone with good features look no further the A57 is the one, to replace the already popular A50.
