Pashupati Trade Link, the authorised distributors of Micromax smartphones in Nepal, has officially launched Micromax Canvas Play Q355 in Nepal for Rs.13,642. Canvas Play is an entry-level smartphone that comes with a huge 5.5-inch screen and Android Lollipop out of the box.
Talking about the specs, it boasts a 5.5-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. Under the hood, the phone comes with a quad-core MediaTek Cortex A7 processor running at a frequency of 1.3Ghz, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via a microSD card slot up to 32GB. It houses a 5MP back camera with LED flash and VGA front facing snapper.
Connectivity wise, Canvas Play Q355 is equipped with Dual SIM with 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and A-GPS. The phone is powered by a Li-Ion 2820 mAh battery, which according to the company provides a talk time of 10hrs and a standby time of 10 days. The phone is currently available for purchase from different Micromax outlets all across the nation. It is available in blue and white colour options.
During the launch event, Pashupati Trade Link claimed the Micromax Canvas Play Q355 boasts the latest technology, sleek designs and one of the best cameras one can find in a smartphone. But looking at the specs and during our hands-on time, it’s hard to support their claim. The screen, despite possessing a big display, comes with WXVGA resolution and is the worst we have seen in a while. Moreover, the rear and the front snapper picture quality lacks in detail and colour accuracy. The performance of Micromax Canvas Play Q355 is smooth thanks to the quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM, but still isn’t the best when it comes to multitasking and playing games.
Recently, Micromax stunned the tech market with the launch of Yu Yureka Plus smartphone. Priced at just INR.10,000, it features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 2nd gen processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 13/5MP cameras, 2500mAh battery, dual-SIM support, and Cyanogen 12 OS based on the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
