The A50 is powerful in multi-tasking too as it comes with a 650 Mhz processor speed. However the most exceptional feature of this phone is AISHA, the voice assisted tool. In the end we all want a phone which can do our tasks in a jiffy, in this case AISHA will prove very helpful for you.

Is AISHA a mimic of SIRI?

You just exchange a command such as “Update status on Facebook” and the rest is done by AISHA. You can also ask her “What is the weather in New York” and she will respond to you by “The weather is cold”. As you can see the commands are all a mimic what we found in iPhone’s SIRI, but then again iPhone 4S costs double than what A50 is priced at.

Although there are voice assistance tools for Android available at Google Play such as Skyvi and Iris but Aisha performs better and responds to your commands with much greater accuracy than those apps.

VERDICT: Looking at the connectivity options such as 3G and Wi-Fi and also enough processor speed for everyday use, this smartphone is priced at a very cheap rate i.e. Rs. 4,999 which is pretty competitive because not a lot of manufacturers these days are putting their models on sale with such feature sets in that price range. If you are looking for an affordable Android phone with more than enough features to get you started then look no further, Micromax A50 is best suited for you.

But if you are one of those who are into photography and want pro features then don’t consider buying this phone because 2.0 MP camera is not the best option. The starting point for you will be 5.0 MP found in Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Ace and other mid-range phones which also have nice processing powers and GPS functionality, which is important for people which like to take pictures while traveling or in events like weddings that you can even take pictures Inside Out Booth.
