Micromax A72 Canvas Viva is an another addition to the canvas smartphone series . This phone was launched in the month of April 2013 , the phone comes in low budget android phones and has the specification which allows it to run android OS smoothly . Micromax is well known Indian mobile manufacturing company for producing budget android phones . All of their phones have a big screen which attracts the youth and you might be aware that Micromax recently announced that over 1 million canvas devices has been sold out . This phone has somewhat similar specs as that of other canvas phones but it comes with a difference and that is its different look .
Micromax provided flip covers too with some of their smartphones like you’ll get a flip cover with Canvas 2 Plus and with this phone you will get a Electric Blue colored Flip cover with this phone inside the box . If you want to see how this phone looks with the flip cover , kindly see the below pic . As stated on the official website this cover is of worth Rs. 1500 . The phone is a dual SIM smartphone that supports 2G network only , unfortunately it doesn’t supports 3G network , so you won’t be able to enjoy lighting fast 3G surfing/download speed .
Micromax Canvas Viva A72 Specifications :
The phone has a big screen of 5-inch ( 12.7 cms ) and comes with a TFT display with screen resolution WVGA(480*800) unlike other canvas phones which has the LCD display . The screen has a capacitive touch , capacitive touch won’t disappoint you . No canvas device comes with Resistive screen touch . The phone supports Multitouch . The only good thing about the screen is its size which is 5-inch , most of the people now prefer phones with big screen .
Design : The phone has a sleek design , the look of this phone is bit different if we compare it with other canvas phones . The blue flip cover makes this phone look even more classic . I’m sure girls will love the design as they prefer looks over specs . The side view of this phone looks good , on the left extreme side volume keys are present and on the right extreme side Power/lock button is present . The rear speaker is placed somewhat on the left side instead at the bottom center .
Android Operating System :
The phone runs on Android Operating system version 2.3.6 Gingerbread . Android OS has become the favorite ,people now prefer android over iOS , Java , Symbian . With Android OS you can play various games , run apps and much more . With Google Play Store you can download millions of games/apps . Games like Temple Run , Angry Birds , Need for speed and many more are available on android OS . If you’re switching from Java OS then You’ll just be glad to have an android phone .
The phone has a rear camera of 3MP and doesn’t have the secondary (front) camera . Unfortunately with this phone you won’t be able to enjoy the video calling and if we recall the network mode, it doesn’t supports 3G connection as well . I guess Skype will work on this phone with the help of rear camera but in the absence of secondary camera , the calling will not be that smooth . The phone doesn’t have any LED flash so you can’t expect to click good quality photograph at night .
The phone comes with a 2000mAh Battery which will give you a backup of around 5 to 6 hours if you don’t use Internet or play games much and if you access internet or play games a lot then you can expect a low battery backup of around 2-3 hours . Generally, all the canvas phones comes with 2000mAh battery that is low and battery backup of almost of canvas phones is low .
Processor & Storage :
The phone is equipped with MTK 6515M 1GHZ processor , RAM is about 512MB . Internal Memory available to the user is only 110MB for the storage of applications . The storage for apps is very low so you need to have a memory card (SD card) to load all the other data . The external storage i.e SD card can be inserted into the phone and the secondary memory is expandable up to 32GB . With 1GHZ processor you can play high end games but there are games which are saved only in phone not in SD card so you won’t be able to play those games unless you root your phone .
