Canvas 2 colours is just another variant of Canvas 2 with which Micromax entered into the smartphone market. The phone features a 5 inch IPS screen with HD (720p) display. Quad core processor clocked at 1.3GHz (MT6582 chiopset) with 1GB RAM and 4G B ROM. 8MP Rear shooter supported with 2MP front camera.

        @ Jaiganesh:
        Go to settings -> Internal Storage -> Internal Storage (scroll down) Click on Apps(app data and media…) ->
        Check “Google Chrome” or someother app that sucks up memory.
        Delete Cache and Data, and try again. Worked for me! 🙂
        Hope it Helps!

  8. Jagjit Singh says:

    I was quite excited to upgrade my micromax canvas 2 colors to the latest android version. But after updating it started giving problems which are as follows:

    1. Center capacitive key stopped working for long holds. So i can’t close apps previously opened.

    2. Clean master provided by the latest version doesn’t work at all which however worked before on jellybean.

    3. Can’t update preloaded apps.

    4. Can’t move apps to external storage due to which lot of my phone storage is occupied and i m literally left with no space to download new apps.

    5. Though one positive feature is that more RAM is available now which is good.

    I am not sure if a factory reset would do the trick or not. Kindly help me solve these issues.

  9. jagjit singh says:

    Most of my problems (on Canvas 2 Colors) mentioned in my earlier post got resolved after factory reset but new problems have emerged.
    1. Now i can’t change my ringtones. I can select and listen all the default ringtones but can’t change it.
    2. Youtube has started hanging on my phone. I have updated it too. Speed is not an issue here coz it works perfect on my laptop.
    Please suggest fast.
