Micromax A88 Canvas Music bundled with JBL Headphones (Hands On)
Micromax has just launched its brand new offering called the Micromax A88 Canvas Music, the phone apart from being a Android powered phone will come bundled with JBL headsets.
Specifications include a
single dual core 1 GHz processor, 4.5 inch display, 1800 mAh battery and a 5 MP camera with LED flash, the Micromax A88 Canvas music will also have a 0.3 MP front facing camera.
We went hands on with the Micromax A88 Canvas Music, and the device seems well made, and the interface seems fairly smooth. Considering all the specs are average, the biggest value proposition are the JBL headphones. With comfy foam ear cups the headphones give good amounts of bass and sound wonderfully accurate.
The previous editions of Micromax Phones have included generic Headphones, but this time around with the inclusion of the JBL headphones and Android Ecosystem, Micromax might have hit the nail on the right board.
