Why to Buy:

Micromax A 110 is a good phone in Dual sim functionality and its Android 4.0 operating system is great.

Why to Avoid:

Its screen resolution and display can be a reason to avoid. It lacks with a dedicated camera key as well.

Our Take:

Micromax A 110 is a better option for people looking for big screen Android phone with Dual camera and Dual Sim functionality. It is a good mid-range phone with many good features pre installed. But, its weak display and screen resolution is not good.
