Micromax Canvas 2 (2017) Review

  • Camera performance is below par

If the ancient 3310 can come back from the dead, why not other phones? Micromax seems to have caught the nostalgia bug and has decided to resuscitate the Canvas 2 – in name at least because there’s absolutely nothing that this new phone carries forward from its namesake. We don’t know why Micromax went straight to Canvas 2 instead of just rebooting the line and starting with “Canvas” - the 2012 model might have been popular but it certainly wasn’t iconic. Budget phones at the time weren’t built to last very long, and we doubt many people would even be able to pick it out of a lineup of low-cost phones from that era.

Micromax Canvas 2 (2017) Summary

Micromax is playing on nostalgia by reusing the Canvas 2 name. However, this new model has nothing in common with the original. It's all plastic and looks good, but its material quality, specifications and features are no match for Chinese competitors at the same price level. Battery life is weak and charging takes several hours. The camera can perform well only if conditions are favourable. The biggest letdown is that despite running on Android 7.0, this phone's custom skin is buggy and delivers spam notifications. It's safe to avoid this trip down memory lane.

    A true VFM phone. A 5.5 inches screen would have been better, but very satisfied with this Made In India Phone. Good Battery, Sound and Camera. Everyone should buy one. The finger scanner works well. The speed with 3 Gb RAM is decent.

    Best INDIAN phone and always better than Chinese Handsets.. I can compromise with Brand but not with my Country & after 15 days of usage it is the best device for those with minimal usage & specially old age people!! Best buy Price : Upto 5000-5500
