Some of you might know about the Indian manufacturer, Micromax, or maybe even own a device made by them, due to their low cost smartphones with mid-range specs, they are wanted by everyone.
A couple years ago, this company had launched the Canvas 4, a very simple smartphone that was made to fulfill the needs of it’s master. Now, they announced its big brother, the Canvas 5, costing roughly $183, is a phone to consider due to its specifications being from a mid-range phone with a low cost price tag.
The handset comes equipped with a 3GB DDR3 RAM, 5.2-inch full HD display, 2,900mAh battery, 16GB of expandable internal memory and to process all that, it is equipped with a Tru-Octacore MediaTek MTK6753 clocked to 1.3GHz. The FHD screen is also equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and has 423 PPI.
Camera wise, the Canvas 5 has a 13MP rear-camera with a Samsung 3M2 image sensor, and a 5MP ‘selfie’ camera. Featuring a simple but elegant design, the Canvas 5 has a full metal side frame and round edges, which seems to be a thing that every brand is wondering for their phones. The phone itself measures 148 x 73.60 x 8.30 (mm), that should mean that the phone is 8.30mm thick, but the company says the phone has a 4.8mm visual thickness, whatever that means.
Hey look at me, i weigh 300 pounds but visually i have a body from a bodybuilder.
You’ll also have 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth connectivity. When it comes to features, the phone has a Picture in Picture feature, which means that you can take photos simultaneously with both cameras and Smart Wake, which allows you to run apps from the locked screen with simple hand gestures.
Out-of-the-box, the phone comes with android 5.1 Lollipop, but the company has promised that they will have a Mashmallow update coming in the future.
