Pashupati Trade Link, the authorized distributor of Micromax Products in Nepal, has launched the latest lineup in the Canvas series — Micromax Canvas 5. The phone is priced at Rs.21,500, however early birds can grab now for Rs.19,500 with free 16GB microSD card.
We did our hands-on with the device and it has impressed us above par. Canvas 5 is one of the most well-designed handsets from Micromax. It comes in a form factor of 5.2-inch at 8.2mm thickness and weighs just around 143 grams. The device is light and feels really solid in the hand and the back has a leather-like finish which gives it a premium feel.
The charm here is obviously the 3GB of RAM, but its display is also praiseworthy as it packs a beautiful Full HD display with pixel density of 423ppi. Micromax Canvas 5 runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 out of the box and Micromax has promised that the phone will get Marshmallow update.
Micromax Canvas 5 is equipped with 13MP Rear camera and 5MP Front Camera with LED flash. Yeah, you heard it right! It comes with a front facing LED flash which results in good quality images at low light conditions and the rear camera also performs really well. Under the hood, it packs a 1.3GHz Octa-core MediaTek processor with 16GB of internal storage that can be further upgraded via microSD card slot upto 64GB. The back is removable giving it access to a non-removable 2900mAH battery, 2 SIM card slots (4G+3G), and a microSD card slot.
Talking about the performance, the Mediatek processor handles everything you throw at it nice and easy. Multitasking is a breeze with 3GB of RAM available, even with all the Micromax Bloatware it still has 2GB of free RAM at initial use. What is even more astounding about this product is that it comes with a mere price tag of Rs.19,500. At this price point, Micromax Canvas 5 is a steal with all the specs it packs and how well it performs.
