|Root Celkon A200: The Easiest Way|
Quick comparison with Micromax A110:
Micromax A110's popularity has spread like wildfire, a testimony to that is the fact that the A110 is world's most popular device in GSMarena's huge database. To rival Micromax A110, Celkon mobiles launched the Celkon A200 in the recent past. The phone packs almost all the goodies present in A110 except the 8 megapixel camera. The screen is a bit smaller at 4.3" (as compared to A110), but thus enjoys a higher ppi value of 217. A110 beats it in terms of battery life too, with the Celkon A200 sporting a staggeringly low 1500 mAH battery.
