Micromax has struggled to be the biggest smartphone brand in India. It seems quite promising and may also give a competition to the Samsung dominant smartphone market in India. Micromax has come with a mid-range smartphone Canvas 4 which has entered the market with great buzz. It seems that it has the capability to convince the consumers to spend their money on it.
Design and Build Quality
The Micromax Canvas 4 design and look is not very extra ordinary rather it looks like an average mediocre phone but it is the most refined model of Micromax. It has an aluminium frame which works as an antenna. Its glossy panel at the back is a blunder. Its design is the copy of BLU Life One handset.
The Canvas 4 sports a 5 inch screen with 720×1280 pixel dimension. The display is scratch resistant with Gorilla Glass. The overall colour quality is quite appealing. The Canvas 4 features a quality screen and is better than its previous model Canvas HD.
The Micromax Canvas 4 possesses Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. It features some sophisticated apps like blow to unlock while it can be quite awkward to use such app in the crowd. The menu layouts and home screen are unchanged. Inspired by the multi-tasking feature the Canvas 4 has a pop up function which allows us to operate multiple tasks with split screen display. The Canvas 4 comes with preinstalled applications like Opera Mini, Hike, Foneclay, File manager and more.
The Micromax Canvas 4 sports a 13 mega pixel camera with auto focus technology and LED flash. It offers several varieties of modes including normal, HDR, face beauty, panorama, multi-angle and smile shot. Another unique extra ordinary feature is that you can click to 99 photos in one go in Burst mode. The Canvas 4 has the best camera compared to other micromax models. It can record full HD video in mp4 format.
Performance and Battery
The Micromax Canvas 4 is powered by quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. It possesses a RAM of 1GB which is quite enough. It has an internal memory of 16 GB and Wi-Fi 3.0. The Canvas 4’s 2000mAh battery lasts easily for a day or more with standard use. For a quad core 5 inch Android phone the battery life is quite appreciable.
