Should you buy Micromax Bolt A61?
It depends on whether you care more for 3G connectivity or other specifications. If you don’t have any issues with not-having 3G, you should check out Videocon A24, which comes with slightly better specs and newer Android version, otherwise Micromax Bolt A61 seems decent at the given pricing.
