Micromax IN Note 2 announced: Helio G95 SoC, 48MP camera, and AMOLED screen

25 January 2022
It goes on sale next week.

Sort by:

As this is launched right before Repulic Day, its obviously an attempt by Micromax to cash in to "boycott Chinese" sentiment, which has so far mostly failed as the market still buys Chinese phones, statistically speaking.

But as long as production quality is maintained, I believe this is a good offer.
We're looking at G95 which is a potent chipset.
Don't complain about 4GB RAM, its enough considering that the IN lineup is bloat-free.
And with microsd and 3.5mm, you're good to go.

I believe they need a capable lower end phone too, otherwise they're good to go.

One more thing I learnt (not quite the) hard way:- You want to beat the Chinese companies? There's no other way, except to make excellent Indian phones and give excellent service. No, political messaging doesn't work. Statistics have proved it.

The quality of photos is reason enough to prove the overall worth of these phones. Almost all display related matters look artificial to say the least. You'd rather buy any other Indian brand and at least give them a chance to prosper than buy from our enemy.

The reason why the chin is thicker because for handling. Lucky apple make their big bezels all simetrical so you will not notice the illusion of it.

They could have distributed top and bottom bezels equally but its okay i guess for a $165 device that is mostly targeted towards people of Tier 2-3 cities and towns of India.

Regardless of the budget, phone with "2MP macro, and 2MP depth units." is always garbage in my eyes. Why are manufacturers still fooling people with these fake sensors? It's pathetic really.
