Micromax X40 Review

This is a dual sim projector phone from Micromax. It costs around 4800 Rs - 5500 Rs online, depending where you buy it. The phone features are what you expect from a basic phone with one big feature, which is projector.

This phone only has Bluetooth, no WIFI. You can connect it to your computer with the provided USB cable. It also supports Micro SD but only up to 4 GB, it also comes with 80 MB internal memory.

It has a basic 2 mega pixel camera that can take pictures and also record video.

You can use dual Sim's with this phone on a 2G network. It has all the basic phone facilities, you can only store 100 contacts in the address book which is a downer.

Its interface is quite simple but don't expect to install apps. It comes with some java apps like, Opera, Facebook, Mundu radio etc. But using them with the 2G speeds can be quite painful.

So why would you buy this phone then, Its a projector phone at 4800 Rs didn't you read the top of the blog post. At that price you will accept any problems it has.

Taking photos with the 2 mega pixel camera and projecting them and showing it off, how cool is that. Even iPhone can't do that. You can also project the video taken by the phone. You can also project simple word and excel documents with this phone but don't expect to open big presentations.

Videos in 3gp format work well with the projector. Images under 1 Mb work well with the projector.

It can project a screen as big as 55 inches TV at 5 feet distance.

So don't buy this phone thinking you can watch movies with it, you can't. Even though you can put some videos into the micro sd card and project it. Finding the small size videos which play perfectly well on the phone could be a problem. They should have provided a software or online solution for this problem.

You can show off your photos and videos taken by the phone. If you shoot them at the right condition videos and photos look quite okay.

The battery lasts two days with the just the phone usage and around 1 1/2 hour with the projector turned on.

Using this phone almost feels like you are in future wonderland, just for that if you can afford get this phone.
