  3. Saurabh says:

    Hi., I am facing the two major issues with Micromx Turbo
    1. The Camera picture quality is not at all good. They are not crisp and show pixels when u take photograph
    2. I didn’t realise the catch of internal memory. Most of the applications (like Whatsapp, twitter, FB etc) installed on phone memory by default (which is only 1GB) and after few apps I realise my phone memory is full!!!! I cant send these apps to internal memory and hence this phone has really become useless.

    Is there a way out of about problems!

    • Mohd Rahib says:

      Hi Saurabh,

      You can switch your Apps into internal memory i.e 13 GB available for user. Plz find below

      go to SETTING—>APPS (it will show app list or you can scroll right to see All Apps)
      Click on the particular app which you want to move..a button will show–>”MOVE TO INTERNAL SD CARD”
      thats it.. 🙂

  8. Naga chaitanya says:

  9. Senalda says:

    Hi, it’s only been 2 month’s since i purchased the micromax turbo but I already have problems regarding the camera. When I turn on the camera it says galery not responding. Please help me fix the problem . I didn’t expect Micromax to have such issues with the device.

  10. Same issue the camera is not connected to the gallery! I think its a bug which needs to be address. Tough the phone is good but this is a pain for a week old phone to face a problem with gallery access. Trying to reboot to factory settings. I thought its worth trying 2 gun Ram but the rear camera seems to be a deal breaker.

    Hi Friends,

    It seems to be a common issue with MMX Turbo. Its a feture rich hi-end phone..but small bugs like these are killing all charme…

    MMX should releasesome concerete solution as it is a common issue in 100% TURBO phones.

    Expecting quick action from MMX before brand value gets impact.

    Admin to share feedbak..


  12. Akhatar says:

    Yes Sir.

    All victims are discussing the same issue. Hoping to get some quick resolution on that.

    • bala says:

      • Gaurang Nazar says:

        I was having the same issue. Read a bit on the internet and tried it and it worked for me. Just uninstall the Skype application. Restart the phone. The camera and gallery should work properly.
