Micromax Canvas 5 Features

Indian manufacturer Micromax has recently refreshed its existing Canvas series with the all new Canvas 5. The device has got looks this time with metal sides & good matte finish on the back which is still plastic though.

The display of the Micromax Canvas 5 measures at 5.2 inch with a resolution of 1920x1080 (FHD) pixels that totals to a pixel density of 423PPI which is sharp & crisp enough to not see any pixelation.

The phone is powered by an Octa Core chip MediaTek MT6753 clocked at 1.3GHz & has 3GB RAM. It sounds quite similar to Coolpad Note 3 which was good in terms of normal performance with basic games but definitely not for graphic intensive games, however the 3GB RAM should be great for multitasking.

Behind is the main camera which is a 13MP sensor with LED flash & can record videos up to 1080p. And on the front is the 5MP shooter with LED flash as well for those excellent lit up selfies.

It has a 2900mAh battery which has a standby time of approximately 275 hours & talk-time of around 10 hours. It is a Dual SIM 4G enabled device & has a internal storage of 16GB with expandable option up to 64GB via a MicroSD card. The Canvas 5 runs on Android Lollipop (5.1) & is available in Tan Brown & Slate Grey colours.

I bought this phone in March last year for Rs 11500. I bought it after searching for a lot of good phones in this price range. Finally I found this one with 3gb RAM meeting my expectations to not hang while multitasking. It has a good 13mp rear and 5mp front camera both with flash. It has an internal memory of 16gb expandable upto 64gb. Its been a very swift phone to use since it doesn't lag. It just has one demerit which I got to know after buying it that it is not 4G voLTE and just 4G coz one sim slot is 3g and one 4g.
The Good
  • 13mp rear and 5mp front camera with both sides flash
  • 1.3 ghz octa core processor
  • Android 5.0 lollipop
  • Battery backup is nice with 2900maH
  • 16gb internal memory expendable upto 64gb.
The Bad
  • Doesn't support 4G in the 2nd sim slot
  • Charging jack has to be replaced once for not working properly
