OG Review: Micromax Q7 EzPAD

After the success of earlier models viz, the Q3 and the Q5 in the ezpad series; Micromax is out with yet another QWERTY phone, Micro max Q7 ezpad. Micromax has made an attempt to come close to the brilliant smart phones of Nokia E series and Blackberry, but comes nowhere near. But is a good choice for 5000 bucks. It is available in two colours, black and silver. It has a Wi-Fi (woohoo! A first for Micromax ezpad) and is preloaded with facebook, opera mini and nimbuzz messenger. As usual it’s a dual sim phone with a 2 Megapixel camera, which is of no great quality.

Micromaxx has provided a standard 3.5mm jack which is a sweet surprise for music lovers. It supports mp3, amr, midi, wav formats. The sound is amazing (to our surprise!) on the earphones, but when it played in the background sounds more like a “loud” china phone kinda sound quality. It plays stereo FM too. It also has sound effects options like bass enhancer and equalizer, but sounds no change when whichever (classical or rock) is selected (what?). We played some videos (.3gp and .mp4) but were left a tad bit disappointed as we were expecting the screen quality to improve from its predecessors. So overall, the sound quality is okay, and the video quality is acceptable (well frankly at this price point anything looks good).

I am extremely disappointed with the looks of the phone. It just looks like a cheap plasticky phone which gives you hard click feels when you use the keyboard. Ergonomically the phone doesn’t impress us much either, since the Micromax Q7 consists of a 3.5mm jack on the top left and a USB port on the lower right (We would have loved to have a camera and volume control keys). Q7 is slightly thicker than Nokia E71. The back of the phone has a camera on top and a speaker adjacent to it. Compared to the Micromax Q5 the Q7 is much smaller in size and does away with the curves + metal that the Q5 carries. The Q7 comes with a trackball which is just average with its responsiveness (Though believe it works better than those cheap Chinese phones. Nowhere close to a blackberry though!) It has an internal memory of 78MB, and it has a memory slot expandable upto 4GB.

Coming to the keypad, the keypad isn’t too great yet much better than what we had expected in this range, but when compared to its own predecessor Q5, it fails! There is spacing between each individual key; they are square in shape and flat. We noticed an elliptical curve on the keypad, but it is noticeable only around the keys at the centre of the keypad. However, not anywhere close to the Nokia E series. If you have used the Q5, you will have issues with this one, else this works better than the Videocon V1675 and Samsung Corby txt.

Micromax Q5 QWERTY
Micromax Q5 QWERTY

Q7 sports Opera Mini just like its predecessors, but it can open only the predefined bookmarks, no new URL can be entered into the address field, just like the Q5 (bad!). The UI is pretty much the same in all the models, running a basic Java OS this handles all basic tasks pretty well. The 2MP camera is basic; you can see the sample images below in the gallery (not bad).

In the box:

  • Handset
  • Charger
  • Battery
  • Handsfree
  • USB Cable
  • User and Service guide
  • Warranty Card
  • Driver’s CD (mentioned but missing)
  • Leather pouch (mentioned but missing)

Q7 Specs:

  • Dual Sim support
  • Wi-Fi Enabled
  • Music Player powered by Yamaha
  • 2 MP Camera
  • QWERTY with Trackball Navigation
  • Memory expandable upto 4 GB
  • Facebook, Nimbuzz, Multi Instant Messenger
  • Preloaded Opera Mini Browser

VERDICT:

Micromax Q7 ezpad is an entry level phone with QWERTY keyboard. This thing does a good job at looking professional and at the same time not costing you a bomb. We love the WiFi thrown in here, but then it’s no use surfing the web when Opera Mini is buggy. However, a substantial budget phone if you just want the looks of a QWERTY and somewhat reliable quality.

  • Definitely feature-rich for that price. I always wanted to buy this phone until Nokia C3 was released. Nokia C3 has all the features Q7 has minus dual sim thing plus larger display. And comes for a price of 5.3k which is definitely competitive at least for the “Nokia” tag. And Nokia C3 looks far better than this box. If you are not really a dual sim fan then just go for Nokia C3 instead. It is released but not in stores yet. Announced price is 5.3k.

  • I love micromax.
    I have a Q5 just bought beforefew months !!!
    hmm no probs
    how about the track ball?
    will it last for years or same as blackbery?

  • dear friends, it is true that the box is missing accessories like leather pouch and drivers cd, and the drivers are not their in the website of micromax, what is the fun buying this phone with out drivers, it will not sync.

    i have opened 10 boxes sealed boxes in different shops, but, they all have the missing of 2 accessories, which is even printed on the box, goes missing, when contacted mirco max , they say ,printing mistake, how can they do that, they print some thing and sell some thing,

    we should file a case against the company.

    vinu

  • Hi Vinu

    Glad you did so much research for us here. Yes the leather pouch mentioned was missing. Its a sad story, as a consumer even I feel cheated!

    Fyi Junta, we at OnlyGizmos PAY for these gadgets. We purchase them as normal consumers and review them for you.

    Thanks

  • If anyone if looking at options on hot to Sync this thing here is the guide (Thanks Ankit Jain)

    Download the PC Suite & Drivers of Q5
    Install Drivers
    Connect phone. Gets connected on some COM port. Note it down
    Install PC Suite
    Open PC Suite & Go to settings.
    Under Connect: Select Mobile Phone: 320×240
    COM Port: The above port no will be listed there. Choose & comeback to Phonebook. It should now indicate connected.

  • Update from MMX Customer care regarding Leather pouch & Driver CD :

  • Hey, I’ve just purchased this Q7 & the track ball appears to be fine. I’ve heard of mixed reviews on the trackball life even on BB & MMX. It all depends on usage & LUCK :D
    MMX do provide 1yr warranty. So hopefully u may be able to leverage it. If u encounter it post warranty, dude go for another cell, itna paise mein itnaich milenga ;)

  • Ankit Jain please tell me about the Q5, Q7 track ball.

    My brother-in-law had a Blackberry 8900 with track ball and it last only for about few months after that he bought Blackberry 9700 without trackball he said that this micromax Q5 will do the same. Is it?

  • Hi,

    I have purchase Micromax Q7 this month on 18 May 10. At the time of purchase shop keeper has not provided me the full assesories. Leather pouch and driver was missing and shopkeeper told me they already spoken to company and soon they will provide us. even after so many call we have been given only assurance with any resuly. how customer being make fooled printing on box and not being delivered to the customer. this is some this should not be done by the company which gives the wrong reputation. this is some thing risk i took buying micromax mobile, normally i prefer only NOKIA which already I am hold 3 sets and gives us good result.

    please provide assories as per printed on box.

    thanks
    Anil

  • Please see my comments as per previos window for not providing the correct assessories.

  • @ALL: Pl dont waste ur money on this crap phone…no one should buy MMX phones…the phone started to getting switched off abruptly & would not power on. If indeed it powered ON would work for say only few mins & damn go OFF again.
    Their service centers are not able to fix this & customer care never responds to emails. Their tollfree number is always busy between: 10:30AM -6:30PM. The toll number has an automated answering system which starts options from 4 instead of 1 & keeps looping without transferring to any agent No matter which option you choose

    i was just seeing all these negative things with Q7 and found very bad.. ya i know some Q7 users found problem with Q7..

    but setting up of WIFI and Using net is not a problem with Q7..
    its just u people are not using correct settings..

    i donno guys.. y u people are soooo against Q7.. its because this mobile is cheaper than any Branded mobile ??

    guys.. few people got some prob with Q7 in starting.. but Micormax replaced it..

    but what ever my friends are talking above is not a problem.. is just … that they r not able to configure settings properly..

    guys lemme free from my MCA exams.. then i will post all easy settings .. until u can google it ..

    Q7 is very gud mobile if u r luking for 5k range..

    now decision is urs..

  • one more thing wanna clearify..

    its WIFI range is within a Same floor.. guys.. no branded mobile gives u the range more than this..

    and ya.. Except Q7 no mobile gives wifi within 10k (rupees) range..

    its Wifi speed is satisfactory..

  • I am to buy Micromax Q7… the reviews are pretty good ..
    As i am a coll student .. this is ‘ok phone for me’……..
    Moreover i’ve also analysed the bugs …
    1. No drivers(I’ll use Q5 drivers )
    2.the opera mini
    (may i know how to update it to opera mini 5 version ??)

    And sir, pls let me know if there are anymore bugs & if possible their available solutions ..

  • Hi all,
    its my observation that Q7 camera does not have performance of 2MPXL. i have another Nokia N70 mobile with 2mpxl camera and if we compare quality of photo its have lots of different and N70 shows better clearity than Q7.

    another thing is the speaker voice quality is not so good if compare with Nokia phone.

    Q7 driver is available with below link

  • Reviewer mentioned that we can not enter new url. I guess reviewer does not know how to use phone, he reviewed the phone without checking phone well. I also purchased Q7 and I am able to enter new url in opera mini without upgrading it. When u are in address bar just click by ball and scroll down.. it gives “Insert symbol” option click it, it allows u to enter new url.

  • @upendra Wow that was simple. Why don’t they ship a manual along with the phone that teaches you how to operate a low grade OS?

  • 1 more doubt ….
    Can we have new themes for Mmax Q7 ..
    Or only go with the default one …??

  • Just purchased Micromax Q7. Wifi is working absolutely fine. You need to set the wep setting to open and enter the wep key. However incase of hotspot the settings should be customized. Its just like connecting your laptop to a hotspot. I’ve read few comments above and i think before we could jump into conclusions and comment bad about Q7 its better we test it. I’ve also read comments stating that the opera browser does not allow to type out any web address. Thats is not true. One should know how to use opera in micromax. There are options to enter the web address. You have to select “symbols….” and press enter. It will pick up a page to enter the web address. Check it out.

    I do agree that the audio quality is not that great. However for Rs.5000/- expecting high quality does not make sense.

    With regard to drivers. It is true that i dint find the drivers disk in the box. However you dont need drivers. I was able to connect to my laptop without any drivers. I can access my phone. Should you need micromax suit, go ahead and download it from the link provided by Naveen.

    I am able to get onto youtube. However unable to stream the video. Not sure what the bug is. Probably it could be with the codec or settings. Will have to find that.

    Wifi signal works absolutely fine. People who commented about wifi issues you could probably try power cycle on your modem and router. It is a intermittent internet issue. Need not be problem only with your phone. Isolate the issue and find a fix for it.

    Any electronic item is not full proof. You cannot expect it to function all the time. Thats the reason many firms do not offer guarantee on their electronic goods, however they offer warranty. Micromax has a 1yr warranty. But it does not cover any damages, spillage or any such issues. Should you have an issue with regard to software or malfunction get it serviced. Find a nearby service centre.

    Adding files to audio player is a simple one. Just refresh the list and make sure that the audio player list is set to the path where the audio files are present. It works absolutely fine for me.

    If i find any interesting things about micromax Q7 i will update it.

    • Hi Jack,

      I read your comment. Its acceptable. I’ve one query with you. Hope you could clear that. I too own a Q7 and tried Wi-Fi, opera, Bolt, Nimbuzz, and webcam too it all worked fine as of you. but now the problem is I forgot the driver which I used to connect my mobile as a webcam. Now if I try to connect, its showing an error and I am unable to connect it as a webcam.

      Many thanks.

  • Hi guyz…
    i bought the Q7 and it started shutting down on its own n also used to give 5-6 hrs backup without playing with the phone functions…so micromax replaced it for me which is good thing…however im facing issue adding audio files from memory card to AUDIO PLAYER…tried all the possible steps but it says that its EMPTY…so please let me know if anyone has a resolution to it…

    Waiting eagerly for resolutions guys…

    However its a good PHONE…

  • Hi
    I am using a Q& presently and i donot agree with some of the review given. The phone not at all looks like a china made. It has the best looks actually than the nokia that has pictured here.
    Q7 does not look like a phone from a new entrant at all and is working pretty good in all aspects.
    It is a value for money.

  • I have purchased this phone on 9th. WIFI Antenna is one of the weakest thing. And to connect to the Wifi router you should be nearer to the wifi router which defeats the purpose of Wifi. One cannot type the address in the Opera mini browser. I have also tried using the latest 5.1 version. After using a motorola phone for two years , this micromax mobile looks like it is worth less than Rs.3000 (Wifi is useless and browsing is a real pain). Also i cannot connect using the WIFI for browsing. Only pros is the dual sim and QWERT keypad. Micromax should be sued for cheating customers by not providing the standard specifications (WIFI range)

  • Hiii everyone…
    I bought micromax q7 recently…im unable to use this as a webcam(it is supposed to rt?)…

  • Gem of a phone- most intelligent work by any mobile manufacturing company ever!
    Can’t believe I can get so much for 5K!
    Thr was a time when we used to buy expensive Nokia phones!
    And thr was a time when we used to buy expensive ipods!
    This phone has everything tht an iPod has- a 3.5mm jack to output audio to standard headphones and speakers-including car’s.
    Perfect dual-sim function and internet. I watch movies on it, listen to music, and browse internet-perfectly.
    Not just in mobile biz but overall- the designers of this product shud be respected the way Tatas were – for Nano:)

    plz help me……..

  • Q7 excellent all features FM without antenna scrollball work even in raining batter network pick up ONLY PC suit dose not work except that all is well

  • I am also a user of Micromax Q5 set, these micromax phones are not at all made in india, nor they are designed in india or by any micromax R&D people, there is a company “SHENZHEN TINNO MOBILE TECHNOLOGY CO.LTD” a chinese company who manufacture cell phones in china, Micromax just imports them with micromax branding to India, and sells them here. So they don’t have any expertise in updating the OS of the cells as the OS is developed in china itself. We are just bying “A REBRANDED CHINESE MOBILE” with a Indian name MICROMAX.
    The Micromax Bling cell a hyped cell for girls is actually called as SHE as per TINNO MOBILES.

  • dear sir,

  • I am from Australia. When I went to the Palika Bazar in New Delhi to look for a mobile phone. I was showered with lots of telephone including China made. I was confused and mesmeriwed with the so many. Well, I wanted something which would work in Australia with Wi-Fi. I am technology savvy person but insist to possess a simple technology. Well I came across Micromax, Q7 (ezpad). I was apprehensive and worried I am buying a piece plastic with the confidence it won’t work and will break sooner or later. My concerns and worries are unfounded, my telephone is working in Australia with all the features advertised. Though it has only been with me for 3-4 days so far. I am impressed with this mobile technology. If it is designed or copied and as well it has been manufactured in India. I am very proudly can say you have done very well in telephony hardware as well.

    Cheers and best of luck. keep producing better hardware with more and more features of course you can beat Mac, Ericsson, Nokia etc..

  • I just got micromax Q7. I am wondering if I can use skype in it. Any suggestion would be appreciated

    thanks.

  • Hi also having the issue with wifi.

  • Hi Richa, thanks for the settings. Yes now it seems to work ok, although I had to sit in the same room as my wifi router. Will take it out into some public wifi networks to test it. If it’s still not good I might have to try return or exchange it as I only want it for wifi, not calls. Shame as it seems to be a good little phone for such a cheap price!

    Also does anyone know if u can change the ringing tones etc??? Thx
