DESIGN:

The Micromax X601 is a compact phone with a curved back and glossy finish. The phone has a classic candy-bar form factor. The back panel has a glossy brushed finish with the etched Micromax branding at the bottom. The rounded-square camera cut-out is placed at the top beside the loudspeaker grill. The loudspeaker grill is made of a series of drilled holes arranged in a rectangular pattern. The back panel is curved at the edge which helps while holding the phone.

On the front side, the 2.4-inch display takes up most of the top side with only the earpiece sitting atop it. Below the display are the two action keys, the call receive and end keys, the OK button, and the four-way navigation button. The OK button also acts as a shortcut for the LED torchlight which is located on the top edge of the phone. The keys in the alphanumeric keypad are well-spaced and give a comfortable typing experience. The keys also bear Devnagri characters along with English letters. This phone does not have a front camera.

DISPLAY:

The Micromax X601 sports a big 2.4-inch QVGA display which sports a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The display is quite pixel-dense at 167 PPI. The colours are well-saturated and the viewing angles are quite good. The display is easily viewable outdoors in direct sunlight.

CAMERA:

The Micromax X601 sports a 0.3 megapixels primary camera which lacks a flash. The 640 x 480 pixels are not enough to capture any sort of fine details. Photos clicked under ideal lighting conditions are well-lit and colours are captured quite nicely. But low-light and night-time photography is not a forte of this phone. Those looking to capture good quality images should look elsewhere.

PERFORMANCE:

The Micromax X601 does not have a big touch-screen nor is it a multimedia powerhouse. It excels at the task it is made for. The large 1450 mAh battery capacity powers the phone for a long time. The phone performs everyday tasks with ease. The inbuilt 24 MB storage can be increased up to 8 GB via the microSD card.

CONCLUSION:

The Micromax X601 is a phone made for calling and it delivers with clear sound quality and a stellar battery life. The device feels rock-solid in the hand and is a highly reliable calling machine. The camera on this phone is utterly useless and feels like it has been included because it had to be. Otherwise, this is a beautiful device which performs its duty unfailingly.
