Micromax Canvas Play 4G Q469 Features

Micromax announced the Canvas Play 4G alongside the Canvas Blaze 4G and Canvas Fire 4G. As the names specify, the Canvas Play is aimed at more power hungry users, who most likely would want to extract every bit of power from the phone in order to play the heaviest of games and multimedia on their devices. So what does the phone bring to the table? Let’s find out.

Display & Design
The Canvas Play comes with a 5.5 inch IPS LCD panel with 720P display. This grants the phone a pixel density of 267PPI. At just under Rs 8,000, this is a an acceptable pixel density, and there is not much better you can expect. Though, you can always invest a little more and raise your budget to about Rs 10,000 where you can get phones with Full HD resolution, therefore much higher pixel density. The design of the Canvas Play is sharp. That is the best way to put it as the phone has rather sharp corners and edges. This is not going to give you the most ergonomic grip, when using the phone. The display, features a Gorilla Glass 3 protection, so that is a definite thumbs up.

Hardware and Features
The Canvas Play 4G is powered by a Snapdragon 410 chipset. This is a Quad-core chipset with four Cortex-A53 cores. There is 2GB RAM on board, which should equate to a very decent performance at this price point. Since there is no Full HD display to power, the phone should generally feel snappy and quick. The UI on the phone is close to stock Android, though Micromax has done some modifications from their side too. It runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop out of the box. If you are buying this phone, do not hold your breath for updates, as most likely there will be none.

Camera & Storage
The rear camera on the Canvas Play is a 13MP A/F unit. It comes with an LED light for assisting you with shots taken in pitch dark conditions. This LED can double up as a torch too, with a supported application. The front facing camera that you would need for clicking selfies or having video calls, is a 5MP sensor. The primary camera is capable of shooting videos in 1080P. There is a 16GB internal memory out of which 11.55GB can be used by the user. You can expand the memory by another 32GB thanks to the support to Micro SD card.

Battery and Connectivity
When you pick this phone, you will get a 2820 mAh removable battery out of the box. Since the battery can be replaced, you can always carry a spare charged battery, so you can easily get through a couple of days without coming face to face with your charger. The device has support for Dual SIM, there is support for LTE here. The phone features a microUSB port for charging and syncing. Other connectivity options include WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

At just under Rs 8,000 price point, the Coolpad Note 3 Lite would be a phone that we would highly recommend as you get a reasonably good performance out of the phone plus there is a fingerprint scanner on it. There is also the Lenovo Vibe K5 that you should check out as a viable alternative.
