Micromax Canvas Doodle with Stylus

Micromax Canvas A111 DOODLE Specification – Everything You Need to Know


Screen : This phone has a 5.3 inch (13.46 cms) screen which has a color depth of 16.7M . This phone has a screen resolution FWVGA(480*854) . The phone has a medium quality screen which is normal LCD display while the other canvas mobiles like Canvas 2 , Canvas HD has LCD IPS display . As default Mp4 , 3gp video types are supported but you can install app like MX player which allows you to play the video of almost every codec .

Android Operating System :

The phone runs on android OS 4.1 Jelly bean . Micromax hasn’t started releasing updates for its smartphone series yet but yes they allow you to bring your phone to their care centers to get your phone OS updated .Canvas HD runs on 4.1.2 and canvas 2 runs on 4.0.4 and canvas 2 plus runs on OS 4.2 .

Design :

The phone comes with a good design which differentiate it with other canvas smartphone . The phone is very slim and design is very appreciable . The phone comes with a stylus which is available only with Doodle Smartphone  .On the left extreme side volume key is present and on the right extreme side Switch off/lock key is present . Overall the design is exceptionally good and it bit resembles like Note smartphone . The only think which i don’t like in canvas smartphones rear camera design which is always placed bit out of the back panel .

Processor & Storage :

The phone is equipped with 1.2GHZ Qualcomm 8225Q processor but the RAM is only 512MB for this kind of phone the RAM should be atleast 1GB . I don’t know why Micromax has provided such low RAM to such a phone .Nevertheless  the phone is capable of running high end applications without any issue but still according to me if the RAM have been 1GB or more ,this smartphone would have been really a very good choice among all other canvas smartphones .

Camera :

The phone has a 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera . The front camera clicks photographs of good quality and allows you to do 3G video calling and video chat with the help of certain apps like Skype , etc . The phone has a dual LED flash and supports autofocus (focus on touch) .

Battery :

Phew , finally Micromax increased the battery power at least in this phone almost all the other canvas smartphones comes with 2000mAh battery only this phone has battery of 2100 mAh . They increased a bit but that’s not enough for those users who operate phone all the time with internet connection ON all the time but still a sigh of relief for those users who were unwilling to buy canvas smartphones because of battery issue .

  1. Hey,
    I bought this phone a few days back and the power or lock key is shaking a little bit. Is it something to be concerned about or is it alright?
    Please Tell me
    Thank you

    • admin says:

      Hi Ram

      As you might be aware that Power/screen lock button is very important in operating the phone as if it stops working you might not be able to access your phone . To be on safer side just get your phone checked at the nearest Micromax service center .

      Tip – There is an app called ‘Button Savior’ which allows the user to lock the phone with out using the Screen lock button .

    • Mahesh Paudel says:

      Hi, as far as the power button is concerned, it is perfect in my phone. U ought to go to the service centre because it doesn’t come like so after manufactured.

  2. suresh says:

    I am using Micromax canvas doodle..and i bought this phone a few days back……my problem is i don’t have the option for video calling….can any1 help me out…..

    • Mahesh Paudel says:

      I am getting a little confused. Does the option for 3G video calling comes only under 3G network? Once I was in 3G network and my friend, who was with me, just tried with a video call. The matter is that the call went on ringing from his phone but my phone Micromax Canvas Doodle A111 was unable to detect the call. And no missed call notification too. Please help this issue out.

      • Yes 3G network is required .

        • Mrityunjoy says:

          pls advice me

          • admin says:

            I think video calling feature isn’t available in doodle.

  3. happy says:

    hiii.. a111 doodle ya mobile ka bara ma btya sakta hoo is nobile ka respoons kasa ha camera kasa ha photo saf clik kerta ha khi is ka camera and mobile speed kasi ha kahi fake too nhi ha pls shi batnya friend

    • admin says:

      @happy – The phone comes with a rear camera of 8MP and front of 2MP which produce sharp images. Since the phone comes with 1.2GHZ processor and 512MB the phone may not hang .

      Hindi Translation : Phone k camera ki clarity achi hai and Processor bhi acha hai bas RAM thoda kam hai . Is price range me phone acha hai .

    • admin says:

      Hi Sushil

      I took my friend’s doodle phone and saw that there isn’t any option for video caller in Dialer Tab . Follow the procedure to make a video call :
      Go to contacts and select any contact and then click on ‘Call Option’ . Check out the screenshot below i have highlighted the option :
      Canvas Doodle Screenshot For Video Calling

      • Is this is the screen shot of canvas a111, because i can’t see this type of image in call option. It has simple calling option not the vedio calling option.
        I also want to update the android version to the 4.2 jelly bean…Is it possible and how?

        • You’ll find this option in contacts option . and currently 4.2 JB isn’t available for doodle. We will keep our readers updated once this update comes out officially .

          • In the contact option there is simple option of calling not vedio calling. are u using any additional software?

          • Hi Faizan
            Can you please post the screenshot here?
            No I’m not using any additional software .

          • send me ur mail id . I am not able to post the screenshot here..

          • Mail the screenshot to this address: rmehta749[at]Gmail[dot]com .

            Replace [at] by @ and [dot] by .

          • waiting for ur reply on Micromax A111 vediocalling option in contact. screenshot is already mailed to u.

          • native vedio calling not showing in contact option. screenshot is already mailed to u on you email id….

          • Hi Faizan,
            I apologies for my late response. Since i don’t have the device with me, i am not able to figure out this thing properly.

      • I am also facing the same problem of making 3G video call This screenshot is defenetly not of the canvas doodle A111. Please see the ‘E’ mark at the notification bar, placed over the network bars. But in doodle, it remains parellal to the network bars

  5. Harrish says:


    I brought this phone couple months back but now the lock or power key is not working properly .

    • Hi Harrish

      The best way is to take your phone to the service center to get it repaired . They will resolve this issue within few minutes . Btw you can use apps like button savior which helps you to lock the screen without using lock button .

  13. Vaibhav says:

    Hey Admin,

    Does Skype works well on Doodle on wi-fi and 3G network?? Does the camera heats up after use? I’m planning to buy it but reviews aren’t encouraging..

    • @vaibhav
      I’ve not heard of that issue (heating up of camera) till date. Well Skype is compatible with that device. I’d advice you to ask any of your friend owning this phone as he/she would answer to your query properly.

    The screen shot you have posted here may not be of Canvas doodle. Because even in the contacts, there is no option of 3g video calling.

I have to keep charging my phone for like… every hour! And even when I’ve 80 or 70 or 60% battery, the phone switches off automatically. And when I switch it on again, I find 1% battery. So, basically I’ve to keep charging my phone forever! :/ :/ so, is it like I’ve to replace the battery? If so, then which one would be the best one? I installed many battery saver apps, but none of them worked. I have to keep my mobile data off for almost entire day in order to save battery. And I already had some prob with this phone in the past. I really really love my phone, and don’t want a new one.

  54. Nikhil says:

    I am using Canvas Doodle A111 for the past 4 months. The problem I am facing is about the 3G network. Whenever I switch from “GSM only” network mode to any of the other two, viz., “WCDMA only” or “GSM/WCDMA(preferred)”, it automatically switched to “GSM only” mode. I don’t think it is related to my location, as the situation prevails, even if I move to other places.
    Any suggestions?


    • Rahul Mehta says:

      if you want to experience consistent 3G connectivity choose WCDMA only.

    Thanks rahul… I will do that…let’s see its working or not. …&I’m in 126.
