    i am not able to get into WHATSAPP from my mobile.. pls help me

  2. sanjay rao says:

    Hi. I would like to know if Micromax is a safe buy. After quality, after sales service etc. Want to but a good android mobile around 15,000. Important for me are Rear Camera, good RAM,Processor, battery life, weight (lesser the better)
    4.5 inch would be ideal for my use. I liked Samsung Quattro though its 4.7″ only drawback is 0.3 front camera. So instead of paying 15K plus for it I thought of widening my range to 5″ and budget to 18k. I checked Magnus, Canvas 4 and Turbo. But reviews show that their camera’s though 8 – 13 MP are not really so good. Please help.

  3. sanjay rao says:

    Saw Samsung S4 mini too. liked it only price 22,000 plus, so again I felt might as well go in for 5″ Micromax. Front camera should be atleast 1MP. Though I won’t be using it so much, or atleast not using as of now. I am currently using Nokia X6 8GB. Like the mobile. But very less RAM so cant use anything else with Whats App on. Screen little small. So want to move up to 4″ plus.

    • Go For Canvas Turbo, no lagging issue nothing. Best for clicking images. the phone is packed with loads of features into it. You can read the specifications of this phone on our site.

    I tried tied to use Framaroot-1.4.2 and Framaroot-1.6.0.. but non of these work…

  9. Sanjay says:

    I purchased this phone 2 months ago, it looks good but there are few minor problems like:
    1. It gets shut down automatically.
    2. While charging the sensor works automatically, call goes so without my consent, photos get delete and does allow me the sensor to work as I want, it works automatically.
    3. The processor is slow, when I install more apps, it runs very slow. Can the processor could be upgraded to 1GB?

    Please let me know to how to fix these issues?

      Not possible in stock ROM. Install any launcher and then you can reduce the number of screens.

  19. Rudauliboyz says:

    Framaroot is not working on Canvas doodle a111 any more. Use Vroot instead for rooting . CWM recovery is not available I guess ? there are few sites which is offering Custom recovery but tried them all none of them working.
