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.

Canvas Magnus Micromax 4.2 Jelly Bean


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.

      White coloured one is already introduced by Micromax. It is available in flipkart.
      if you search by Menu, it will not appear. You have to type name of the phone in search bar and both the phones will appear, white as well as blue.

      I got the white one yesterday for 13799/-. It was so good. Even blue is good as well.
      Back panel is not pure white and an aluminium one.

  6. Swarup Dukuria says:

    Hello everyone, I got my micromax canvas magnus in white today from flipkart. So far I found the phone to be really great. Checked all the gestures and they are really nice. Like blow to unlock, shake to unlock, proximity sensors for calls receiving and calling. But I found sometimes I had to perform the gesture twice to let it happen but doesn’t bothers me as far as it keeps working. Apps, games are working great!! no lag at all. Camera clicks are awesome, I need to check the pics after I transfer to laptop.
    Over all a good phone!!!

    Is there any difference between blue and white

    • Yes color difference 😛

      • kuldeep says:

        no, there is main difference between white & blue is weight and screen corning.
        In white color it seems thick and screen glass edges are rounded and it is heavy than blue.
        in blue screen edges are flat.

    or looking assembling??
    & its full back cover how to open/change ??
    Pls. admin give your suggestion….

    • Hi
      I don’t think Black colored magnus is available. And yes if you put a Black back cover on Blue colored Magnus it will look good i think. a little part of Flash and speaker will be visible but that won’t make much difference.

    • mallik says:

      You don’t find much difference between blue and black…back cover is blue(almost looks like black only) and front is anyway black….I like this magnus..
