Micromax Canvas 2 , a phone which changed the image of Micromax firm among Indian people . Earlier Micromax was just a simple mobile manufacturing company making featured phones in low price range . But after the release of their first smartphones , the company got very good response by Indian users . Micromax Canvas 2 has become the favorite phone of the youth and is quite popular among youth . I remember the time when i was trying to get hands on this phone but everywhere it was Out Of stock , This thing was really pissing me off but one day i saw this phone in stock on an online shopping site and instantly i booked this phone . I’m currently using this phone so i can give you in-depth review of this phone .Micromax Canvas 2 Plus an upgraded version of canvas 2 is also available and you check out the details of this phone here .
Frankly speaking , we Indian people like phones with a big screen and that’s the case with Canvas 2 – this phones comes with a big 5′ (12.7 cms) screen which looks good when we’re holding this phone and for gamers like me this phone is just made for us . These days This phone is in-stock on most of the online shopping sites and Yes this phone is now available (most probably) in the market near you too . Earlier Samsung phones used to be the first choice of Indian users but Now a days Micromax Smartphones has become the favorite of Indian users .Who is willing to pay 5k-10k extra if they are getting almost the same thing from Micromax , Logic 😉
Micromax CANVAS 2 Specification Full Details :
Micromax Canvas 2 has a big 5-inch screen (12.7 cms) which comes with IPS Display . I won’t discuss much about the IPS display , People might have heard about IPS display under LCD . IPS display provides consistent and accurate color from all viewing angles and that’s the main feature of this display . The main disadvantage of IPS display is that the battery consumption is 15% more than the ordinary LCD display .
A110 comes with a sleek design , as we have discussed about the screen size which is 5-inch the rear view you can check out in the above image . The side-view of this smartphone is quite sleek and shown below . The Audio Jack (3.5 mm) is present in the above area and charging slot is also available at the upper part of the phone .
Android Operating System :
The phone comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 OS which is upgradable to JellyBean 4.1.1 . As Micromax doesn’t releases the updates through the phone as Samsung does so either you can get the unofficial updates from the web or you can visit the near customer service to upgrade the OS of your Canvas 2 smartphone .
This phone has a battery of 2000 Mah Lithium-ion marathon battery which gives 5 hour talk time along with 180 hours of standby time . Well that’s what officials says , according to me if you put your internet (data) connection ON and you use internet a lot then expect a backup of around 3-4 hours and if you don’t use internet much then you can expect good backup .
Frankly speaking the camera quality isn’t that promising but still It’s better than other phones which comes under the same range . The rear camera is of 8MP (3264 x 2448 pixels) with autofocus while the front camera is of 0.3 MP which allows to do 3G calling , video chat via Skype or any other app . Dual-LED Flash is equipped into this phone which makes easy for the user to click the photographs at night . One advice from my side it to keep switch off the LED flash to get the best picture quality , I’ve observed that the quality of the photo gets compromised if we click photos with LED Flash ON .
Processor & Storage :
Micromax Canvas 2 is equipped with dual core 1GHZ Cortex-A9 processor which makes the processing bit fast and improves the performance .
This phones comes with an internal memory of 2GB which is expendable upto 32 GB with the help of Micro-SD card . ROM is about 4 GB and RAM is 512 MB which is low and sometimes it lags too , We can play heavy games like GTA III but sometimes the phone hangs and if we minimize the applications and open them again , the app gets restarted that’s the main issue , But still this phone can run medium sized applications like Temple run , Angry Birds ,FrontLine Commando and much more without any interruption so no need to worry about this .
