Browse This Page

Micromax Canvas is a name that popularised Micromax with the new market of India. The latest Canvas from the company is the Canvas 5 and comes at a time where Micromax needs it the most.

The device is a big improvement from the build quality standards of the company and has a lot to offer for a consumer at a price of Rs. 11999. The phone goes on sale today online and offline.

The handset has decent specifications, however only to be burrowed by the likes of its own YU Yureka Plus. The new Canvas has a fantastic 2.5 D curved glass that not only looks good and feels great to use, the aesthetic makes the device look a lot more premium.

The handset also features Gorilla Glass 3 on the front glass and a front facing flash. Running everything is a MT6753 chip with eight cores at 1.3 GHz. Owners will get 3 GB of RAM which comes in real handy especially if you do a lot of gaming. The phone has an fast and fluid UI and runs Android 5.1 with sober customizations from Micromax not affecting usability a lot.

The handset has a metal frame that adds rigidity and polish along with rounded edges and a matte finish that feels excellent. The back panel is plastic and has a faux leather finish that is soft to touch and easy to grip onto.

The camera app is appreciated with lots of modes and pro features like those found on flagship Samsung Galaxy phones. You also get apps to re touch images and mostly do makeup etc.

The phone scored over 32000 on benchmarks and has been found to be 95% better than devices in the range. Gaming experience on the handset is good and feels like the 3 GB of RAM helps in leveraging that. We managed to play his end games on the handset with graphs turned to max without issues.

    Ghnta miui or ios, both the said os’s have reached a whole new segment of features, which are not even close to so-called “chukromax”

  • SP Bhushan

    Coolpad Dazen Note 3 has 267ppi HD display which is very low in comparison to Canvas 5’s 424ppi Full HD display.

    You can download Google Now launcher if you prefer an app drawer.

    You can download Google Now launcher or others if you like to have an app drawer.

    1. Galaxy on 7 has TFT screen (267ppi HD) which is outdated due to IPS and Super AMOLED displays but Canvas 5 has latest IPS display (424ppi FHD).
    2. Galaxy on 7 has 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory which is half in comparison to Canvas 5,s 3 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory.
    Choice is yours and don’t compare 2.5 years old Micromax with Current, a lot of things have changed dude!
