Micromax recently launched the Superfone A52 Aisha similar to Ninja A50 and another android phone called the Superfone Punk A45. If you go by the name, this phone is especially made for music lovers, and comes with bundled headphones.

When you go though the specification you will really be impressed but there is one such (missing) feature that will mute your interest level. The A45 does not support 3G. The handset weighs 120 grams and is 13 mm thin.

Yes this phone too comes with Aisha the artificial intelligence speech assistant, which will help you control your phone, but it is not very accurate and at times it is quite frustrating. I really don’t understand why Aisha was added because there is no 3G on this phone and we all know how pathetic GPRS and EDGE services are, in fact the mobile company deliberately provides bad services for GPRS/EDGE customers forcing them to shift to 3G.

Full touchscreen
The 3.5 inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen screen is the best and you can expect smoother performance as seen on the Ninja A50 (A50 screen is 3.1 inches). However the resolution is not yet known.

Processor, OS and Memory
The A45 comes powered with a 650 MHz processor (similar to A50) with 180 MB RAM and micro SD card supported (32 GB). It runs on Android gingerbread (2.3.6) with full access to google play.  Multitasking is possible and you can even play certain games.

There is a 2 MP fixed focus camera with multi shot option and night mode, the features are the same that are available on the A50. The camera image quality is not so good.

This is a not a 3G phone but does support EDGE 2.75G, now this might be something you may be hearing for the first time. The 2.75G is actually called the EDGE and is also referred to as 2.5G (G for GPRS). This is faster than GPRS but slower than 3G. Other options are Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB ports (Micro USB).

Additional Features
This phone comes with some pre-loaded apps like Facebook, Whatsapp, TOI to name a few. You even get access to Google play from where you can download many more apps. To lure music lovers this handset comes with free HD surround sound Headphones with superb audio clarity.

A 1300 mAh standard battery with standby time of about 167 hours and up to 5 hours of talktime.
