First time ever, Micromax came with a Flagship smartphone. Which is Micromax Dual 5. So, is it good enough? or its just a bad choice?? Let’s see.
Fasten your seatbelts as Micromax is ready to Revolutionize Photography with the new Dual 5. With its two 13 MP rear cameras and one 13MP front camera, 13.97 cm (5.5) Full HD Super AMOLED screen, and high-end SecureVault technology.

It would be a joke if I say that, this phone is a Original product of Micromax. This phone is Glass Copy of Chinese phone Qiku 360 Q5. Things different between both of them is just price and production company’s name.
At first glance, anyone would think that, Micromax did great job this time by making a flagship phone. But it’s a shame that Micromax created this phone.
Most of the time the reason to buy a Micromax phone is to support “Make in India” concept, but what good that will do, when that product you think as an Indian product is full on copy of a Chinese mobile just with increased price.
Let’s see photos of both phone showing difference between both of them.
Yes, those Logos are the only difference if you compare both phones. If you compare rest of features it is complete copy. As far as design goes, you can see for yourself that both are Same.
So, question in your mind after seeing this will be like, what Micromax did in this phone??
There is a simple answer to it, they just re-branded this phone. Let’s have a look at specifications of both of them.
Cameras: 13+13 Back and 13 Front for both of them.
RAM: 4 GB for both
Internal Storage: 128 GB for both
Rest is same for both too, which you can see under Full Specifications.
There are two things that differ Micromax Dual 5 from Qiku 360 Q5, first as I showed you above, logo and second thing is price.
Micromax re-branded Qiku 360 Q5 with increasing price by 4,829/- INR. Where Micromax Dual 5 costs 24,999/- INR, Qiku 360 Q5 will costs 2,170/- INR.
Ignoring the fact that they just re-branded this phone, you can say that this phone is good comparing to the other products of Micromax.
Everytime, when Micromax comes with their smartphone, they promote it with all they got, and at the end of the day, they just fail to find buyers.
This is not for insulting Micromax, but in my opinion, Micromax should spend more money after their Research and development team than promotions.
Not sure how good this will do for their sales, but one thing is for sure that, doing this will surely improve their image as a smartphone manufacturer by a bit.
Rest will be depended on how their Research and development team will perform.

If we compare this phone to its original model, which is Qiku 360 Q5, then this model is same as that at higher price. So, it would be better to buy Original at lower price, than buying a copied model at higher.
If you don’t take their original model in consideration, then this phone is not that bad, ignoring heating issue, but price is higher for this model.
Which leaves better choices behind at price lower than this, you can check other phones like, Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro at 28K INR, Gionee A1 Selfiestan with Dual Camera at 20K INR and Vivo V5 Moonlight Camera at 18K INR.
Rest is up to you to decide, whether you liked it or not and whether you buy it or not. So, what do you think about this phone? Let us know in comments.
