Solution of Problems in Micromax Canvas Selfie A255Sometimes Phone is hanging
Why to buy and Final words about Micromax Canvas Selfie A255This phone has not-conventional design, heavy camera both the side with good hardware and software configuration. Camera is main attraction of this phone but in low light condition it is not able to capture high quality images while the outdoor pictures are great. I will not refer this phone to those people who wish to have a long battery backup; but this problem can be tackled by carrying a power bank with you. All the other features are good in the handset as its price range.
