Indian handsets brand Micromax has launched today its latest flagship smartphone Canvas 5 with powerful features. The Canavs has an attractive price tag of Rs. 11,999 and is available in two colors – Space Grey and Tan Brown.


The Canvas 5 has a sleek form factor and sports metal side frame with streamlined design. This phone has rich leather panel which gives it impressive look in this price range. This phone is quite light to carry and it has visual thickness of just 4.8mm.

The Canvas 5 features a 5.2 inch (1080×1920 pixels, 423PPi) full HD IPS display with 2.5D Curved Touch Panel. This phone is driven by 1.3GHz, 64 Bit, MediaTek MT 6753 Octa Core processor paired with 3GB RAM. It has internal storage of 16GB, which can be extended upto 64GB via microSD card.


The Canvas 5 is equipped with a 13MP camera, with 3M2 Samsung image sensor and LED. This camera has features of Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), picture in picture feature, video pop-out, panorama mode with 4X zoom, night mode, pre and post photo settings. This phone also houses 5MP front camera with LED flash. The interesting feature of the front camera is that it is capable of clicking Panoram selfie which Microamx calls Widefie.


To solve the problem of frequesnt charging, the Canvas 5 is packed with  2900 mAh battery with Content Adaptive Backlight Control (CABC), which helps to manage power and also enables the consumers to adjust the image being displayed so that it seems brighter, allowing the actual backlight to be dimmer. The battery is claimed to offer talk time of 10 hours and standby time of 275 hrs.

This phone supports current 4G LTE Indian bands and is also future ready. This is Dual-SIM device and only one SIM will support 4G. It also offers other standard connectivity options of Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth etc.

This smartphone runs on almost stock Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out-of-the-box, and  Micromax says that it will be updated to Marshmallow OS in the future. This smartphone also incorpoartes Smart Wake Gestures which are primarily designed for convenience and quicker opening of few applications such as camera, music, flash light.


To make the deal sweeter, Micromax is offering Double Data Offer from Airtel for the first three months. Micromax has also tied with Bajaj Finance to offer this phone on interest free 12 month EMI scheme. However, the consumers will have to pay four advance EMIs at the time of the purchase. Micromax is also offering a 7 day doorstep service policy.

During our short duration of time spent on Canvas 5, the phone appears to perform as per stated specifications and features. The processsor speed is good and there is no lag when you switch the apps. The camera quality of rear and front cameras is good and we really liked the feature of Widefie on the front camera, which will be appreciated by the selfie enthusiasts. The gesture feature worked perfectly alright and this is one of the plus point of this phone.

The Canvas 5 will give tough competition to Motorola Moto G and some other Chinese smartphone such as Xiaomi Mi 4 16GB etc.
