Hands On with the Micromax Canvas Sliver 5

Browse This Page

Micromax’s new entrant into the smartphone rat race, is not really new. The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 is the Indian manufacturer’s slim device to take on the other slim phones. The upside, the Canvas Sliver 5 is 5.1mm end to end with no bumps or depressions. The frame is made from Aircraft grade aluminium and the front as well as the back is glass.

Specs wise, a few disappointments can be made out easy. For the price of Rs. 17,999, Micromax has included a Snapdragon 410 chipset, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB non-expandable storage and an 8 MP camera.

The front has a paltry 720p display along with Gorilla Glass 3, the battery is a mere 2000mAh. There is not a lot on offer here apart from the slim profile and the lightweight design.

The software is mostly stock Android 5.0.2 with some installed software, most of it is easily uninstalled. A flagship was expected from Micromax today, but the Rs. 17,999 price is might be the reason Canvas Sliver 5 remains on shelves. At a time where the world’s smartphone makers are battling to offer maximum at minimum rates, the Canvas Sliver 5 seems to fall short with average specifications. Besides, users have the choice to spend Rs. 2,000 extra and buy the OnePlus One (64GB) at Rs. 19,998. For that small amount, you would get a better camera, processor and a massive (multimedia-friendly) display.

    I guess Micromax should have given much better features. Physical appearance is pretty good, the snapdragon processor.. :/
    and the battery… shouldn’t have been this less as the price is quoted.
    Xiaomi’s mi4 is pretty good compared to this one and it’s cheaper than this! :’) :P
    Anyways, Nice review, would be great if you could a complete review! :)

  • Kausar BariSadriwala

    This smartphone if 3000 or 5000mah more affordable of this price tag but apart from this MMX rocks

    Micromax ppl would think, “we do re-branding things so secretly, but still these Indians find out some how”…
