I have used the Micromax Canvas Android One for 3 Months and I found it very good. It only lags in Display and Brightness, you cannot use your phone in sunlight because nothing is visible in a sunny day, your screen will behaves like a mirror and the display is normally a capacitive touch screen not a gorilla glass, so the display would get easily damaged. Android One Smartphones also does not support USB OTG Cable, so you cannot use any USB data storage like Pendrive etc. Otherwise the Touch, Battery backup etc. is just awesome in this budget.
