Micromax recently added one more smartphone to the canvas series i.e Micromax Canvas Magnus. There are lots of phones available in Canvas series and this series has become quite popular in India and it has made Micromax the second largest Mobile manufacturing company in India holding the amount of shares just fewer than Samsung. The phone offers quite decent specifications according to its price. The phone is available to buy on all the leading online shopping sites and at the retail stores at an average price tag of 14,500 INR.
Except the processor part the phone is similar to Canvas HD. Canvas HD was launched in Feb 2013 and still beating all the other devices. The device has become very popular among youth and they still prefer this device over other devices etc.

Canvas Magnus has a 5 inch big screen with LCD IPS display with screen resolution 1280*720 and color depth 16.7M. Most of the canvas devices have 5 inch screen with IPS display. The screen offers capacitive touch which is truly awesome.

Both the camera has the AutoFocus feature which is pretty nice for clicking images. You can record videos at a resolution of 1280X780. The rear camera is placed at the upper center of the backpanel just above the flash as observed in other canvas devices.
Android Operating System:
While other canvas device users are waiting for OS updates, Canvas Magnus is already blessed with Android 4.2. Android 4.2 OS comes with a lot of features and you’ll surely like to operate this phone if you’re going to operate an Android phone for the first time. Most of the applications are compatible with this current version of Android OS. With Android OS you can play various games, install different apps, etc.
This is the only thing in which Micromax is lagging behind. They ain’t providing phones with good battery capacity, most of their devices comes with a battery of just 2000mAh. The phone will give a backup of 6-7 hours with normal usage which is not enough for our youth. But you know what you can increase the battery backup of your smartphone if you know how to operate it properly.
