The Canvas 5 is Micromax's new flagship offering, arriving nearly two years after its predecessor. Priced in the chaotic sub-Rs. 15,000 segment, the Canvas 5 aims to deliver stellar camera performance without costing buyers a whole lot of cash. Let's see if it can make a strong impression on us.

Micromax Canvas 5 Summary

The Micromax Canvas 5 is a refreshing upgrade to its predecessor. The new handset features a stylish curved 2.5D display which keeps things interesting in the aesthetics department. The phone has plenty of oomph when it comes to CPU performance and thanks to the near-stock Android interface, app performance is good. The main 13-megapixel camera is very good with macros taken in daylight but low-light shots tend to be a little weak. Battery life is about average as well. At a price of Rs. 11,999, the Canvas 5 misses the mark on what could have been a very good package in this price segment.

  • So far so good.....
    Amitabh Banerjee (Dec 2, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    I have been using only Samsung phones for last many years but this time after a lot of though finally decided to give this one from Micromax a try. Feature wise I think its pretty decent a deal in this price. Havent spent much time with it yet but saw several videos and the quality was pretty crisp and movement was smooth. Havent tried camera in the dark but in light it was as good as the real thing. Dual camera recording is interesting. Another cool feature is the one which keeps track of 10 or so things u last did on ur mobile to quickly get back to one of ur choice. sound is crisp an clear and loud with good base and trebble. Yet to test a 4g connection. Only thing that might turn out to be a bit of concern is the battery life I am not sure if its draining out faster than what I would want it to be or its just that I havent optimized it yet. Have my fingers crossed on that one. Currently its allowing me max 12 screens to store my apps. Trying to figure out a way around it but not sure if its the mobile or android limitation....

    Kedarnath Sethy (Oct 9, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    1. After 10 To 15 minutes uses highly heated as inductions cooker, as a result you can make many omlet on it. 2. Within 10 minutes Auto switch off itself and battery power drain as well as river water. 3. I raise claims 2 times service care and replace batter 2 time's as per instruction but I couldn't take satisfaction result. 4 If anybody ask u regarding Micromax you simply reply "NO".
