Here, Micromax has not included the fingerprint scanner in it even its predecessor IN 2B has a fingerprint scanner. So yes, Micromax has done cost-cutting in it which is not good.

Micromax IN 2C Display

Overall, the display of the phone is good considering the price of the device.

Cameras

The Micromax IN 2C has a single rear camera setup with an LED flash in the rectangular module that houses an 8MP primary sensor.

There is a 5MP Selfie Camera Lens in the waterdrop notch design display. The rear camera can record up to 1080p videos at 30fps.

The 8MP rear camera clicks okay-type photos and the dynamic range of the phone is also very limited. Here, Micromax should have included a 13MP selfie camera at least but they didn’t which is not good.

When it comes to selfies, the 5MP selfie camera clicks photos and is also very limited. Here, Micromax should have provided an 8MP selfie camera at least but they didn’t, they went with 5MP only.

Also, Micromax needs to work on the cameras and provide better cameras, especially the selfie camera at this price. Also, they need to optimize the camera.

Micromax IN 2C Cameras

Overall, the cameras of the device are good considering the price of the phone. But, if you are looking for a good camera phone than this, you can go with Micromax IN 2B.

Performance

The smartphone is powered by a 12nm-based octa-core Unisoc T610 Processor which is paired with Arm Mali-G52 MP2 GPU. It comes with 3GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 32GB of eMMC 5.1 Storage.

The device runs on Android 11 which does contain some bloatware but they are uninstallable.

The Unisoc T610 is a good processor and you will also not face any issues in the day-to-day tasks but Micromax should provide any other processor as it comes as the successor over IN 2B which is available at the same price and has the same chipset.

Micromax IN 2C Performance

Overall, the performance of the device is decent enough and is not great.

Battery

The Micromax IN 2C packs a 5,000 mAh Battery with 10W Charging Support. Micromax has included a 10W Charger in the box of the phone.

Overall, the battery backup of the device is good and it will easily last for 1-2 days as it only has an HD+ IPS Display with 60Hz Refresh.

Audio

The device only does not have dual stereo speakers, instead, it has a single speaker on the backside which is loud. Also, we can’t expect dual speakers at this price.

The Micromax IN 2C has a 3.5 mm Headphone Jack to plug your wired earphones. However, it does not have a secondary noise-cancellation microphone, so another person on the call might have a problem hearing your voice during the call.

Overall, the audio quality and the call quality are decent considering the price.
