DESIGN:

The Micromax CG666 is a compact phone made of plastic with a curvy body and smooth finish. It is available in two colors; White and Black, with gray accents on both of them. The removable back is smooth around the edges. The center of the panel has a diamond pattern texture which improved the grip of the phone.

A black band on the top side houses the camera and the loudspeaker grill. The grill is made of a series of diagonal slits and two dots. There is a raised plastic strip at the bottom to ensure that the back of the phone does not touch the surface when it is kept flat.

The front is dominated by a 2.4-inch display which is bright and colorful. The two action keys and the call receive and end buttons are part of a single 4-way rocker key with complex curve separating them nicely. In the center of this is the OK button surrounded by the four-way navigation key. The OK button acts as a shortcut for the LED torch which sits on the top edge of the phone.

The alpha-numeric keypad is made up of four horizontal stripes, with three keys on each one. The keypad bears Devnagri characters along with English alphabet which makes typing in Devnagri quite easy. There is no front camera.

DISPLAY:

The Micromax CG666 2.4 inch QVGA display is beautifully bright and pixel-dense. Fonts are rendered smoothly and details stand out. The colors are nicely saturated and the display is easily visible outdoors in direct sunlight.

CAMERA:

The Micromax CG666 sports a 0.3 megapixels camera which do not feature any sort of a flash. The VGA resolution is not enough to capture any details in the picture and the absence of flash makes any sort of low-light or night photography virtually impossible. The pictures are dark, grainy and full of artifacts.

This camera is not good. Micromax should have included at least a 2 megapixels camera for the price it is charging.

PERFORMANCE:

The Micromax CG666 is a feature phone which is unencumbered by a big touch-screen display or processor-intensive OS. This phone is built for calling and it excels in that aspect. The 1700 mAh battery powers it for 6 hours of talk time and 350 hours of standby time. It also supports dual networks. It works on both, GSM and CDMA networks at the same time. This is quite a rare feature and adds to the utility of the phone.

The built-in 256 MB storage can be increased up to 8 GB via a microSD card.

CONCLUSION:

The Micromax CG666 is made for calling. With a long battery life and some useful built-in features, this phone fulfills nearly all the requirements of the target user-base. It is a reliable and well-built device. But the included VGA camera is obsolete and effectively useless.

ü  Dedicated memory expansion slot.

ü  Built-in radio and torch light.
