Micromax IN 2b

Review Highlights

The IN 2b is the 4th Micromax smartphone since their comeback last year, and it’s a direct successor to the 1b, which turned out to be surprisingly good.

The build quality feels slightly better from the IN 1b. It’s a textured finish back, so it won’t get scratched or smudged easily You get a triple card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack and type-c USB port.

The front of the device is unchanged, a 6.5 inch LCD with a water-drop notch. The screen feels sufficiently bright indoors, however the outdoor visibility is just about enough.

The In 2b comes in 4/64GB or 6/64 models. It uses a Unisoc T610 processor which is very similar to the Helio G70. It also shares the same Mali G52 GPU Great for daily performance and gaming alike.

The software here is as light as it gets, an almost stock Android 11, with a few Micromax things sprinkled here and there. No bloat, No ads.

There's a 5000mAh battery with support for upto 10W charging. Battery life is good, with about 7-8 hours of SoT spread across 1-1.5 days of usage.

The phone supports Dual Band Wifi, VoWiFi and VoLTE on both SIMs. The network performance, call quality etc was at par with the competition.

The rear camera is still a 13+2MP setup. The front camera however is now a 5MP one, while the In 1b sported an 8MP selfie camera.

It’s an easy recommendation for people who’re looking to buy a phone with hassle-free software experience, regular daily usage and don’t care too much about selfies.

If you’re looking for better cameras and/or better gaming, something like the Narzo 30A or Infinix Hot 10s might suit you better.
