Micromax Bharat 5 Design, Specifications and Price

The Bharat line of smartphones, as the name would have suggested is a series of budget smartphones from an Indian OEM, Micromax. Just like others before it, the Micromax Bharat 5 is a budget smartphone that offers quite a large battery.

This will definitely appeal to user who does not mind having a basic android smartphone. As a plus, it offers quite an enormous battery capacity amongst other features we will be talking about as we go on.

Micromax Bharat 5

Design and Display

In the entry level category, a plastic build is sort of the regular thing and that is what we have in the Micromax Bharat 5 smartphone, However, it has a somewhat glossy finish and which attracts smudges easily. Despite the build quality, the Micromax Bharat 5 is still an obvious budget smartphone.

The Micromax Bharat 5 smartphone comes with a decent HD resolution and a portable display at that. It has a 5.2-inch display size and is surrounded by rather obvious bezels. In a way, the display is certainly not as colourful as what you might have seen in better display but it weighs less on the battery, hence, more on-screen time.

Battery and Camera

Like I said earlier, the Micromax Bharat 5 smartphone has an enormous battery and with the low spec list it would last much longer. In that regard, there’s a 5, 000 mAh Li-Po battery, with a life span of up to two day on minimal usage.

The smartphone has the power of five in Micromax’s words, looking at the battery capacity, with the 5MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. Although not much of can be expected with an entry level smartphone. Pictures taken in enough light appears quite good enough for a budget smartphone.

Hardware and Software

Handling things on the inside is an entry level SoC from MediaTek. In that way, you have a Quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor running at 1.3GHz with an ARM Mali-T720 GPU taking care of graphics.

Also, the Micromax Bharat 5 features a 1GB internal memory which is not too big on app multi-tasking and a 16GB built-in storage. This storage space can be expanded up to 64GB if you want more space. Micromax Bharat 5 also runs on Android 7.0 Nougat from the box.

Pricing and Availability

The Micromax Bharat 5 is available for sale in a number of online stores and smartphone retail outlets for about $80 depending on your location and the deal.
