Micromax Bharat 5 With 5000mAh Battery Launched For Rs. 5555

Micromax has seen quite a dip in its business ever since other brands like Samsung and Xiaomi rolled out entry-level budget offerings. It is keen on taking back its offline budget segment and it is evident from its Bharat range of smartphones. Today it has launched the most expensive Bharat series smartphone yet. The Bharat 5 was launched today and its primary objective is to compete with the recently unveiled Nokia 2 and Redmi 5A. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a price tag of Rs. 5555 which makes it cheaper than the Nokia 2 which retails at Rs. 6999 and expensive than the Redmi 5A which will be priced at Rs. 4999 for the first five million buyers.

The USP of the Micromax Bharat 5 is its abnormally large 5000mAh battery. This means with moderate use the phone it can power through just over two days. The 5000mAh battery on the Micromax Bharat 5 also doubles up as a power bank with the help of USB OTG support. Everything else on the Micromax Bharat 5 is pretty average and nothing to shout about. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a 5.2inch HD resolution display which is encased in 2.5D curved glass. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a MediaTek chipset but the company has not specified the model number. It says that the chipset has a 1.3GHz 64-bit quad core CPU from which we can deduce that the Micromax Bharat 5 has a MediaTek MTK6737 chipset which is found in plenty of other budget offerings. The Micromax Bharat 5 runs Android Nougat.

The performance on the Micromax Bharat 5 is going to be lacklustre as it has just 1GB of RAM. The internal memory of the Micromax Bharat 5 stands at 16GB. You can use microSD cards of up to 64GB to expand the storage. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a 5MP camera on the rear with LED flash. On the front you get the same 5MP sensor with LED flash. Just like all recent smartphones the Micromax Bharat 5 does support 4G VoLTE. Overall the Micromax Bharat 5 is a good budget smartphone but sadly it pales in comparison with Xiaomi Redmi 5A which with its Rs. 4999 price tag and premium build quality, performance and cameras is a much better smartphone.
