Screen & Design :

The phone features a 4.5 inch screen with TFT screen type and 480*854 screen resolution. The color depth is around 16M with which you can expect sharp colored images unlike in A67 the color depth is 262K which is low and in that phone the image quality will be quite faded (not good in short). The screen features capacitive touch.

The design of the backpanel is kept similar to Canvas 4. The logo of Micromax is placed at the center of the backpanel once and on on the front. The camera position looks good.

The IM apps like Whatsapp, Wechat, Line, etc are compatible with this phone.
