Pashupati Tradelink, the authorized distributor of Micromax phones in Nepal has launched yet another smartphone this week, Micromax Canvas Xpress Q413. Few days ago, Micromax Bolt Q327 was launched which was a budget low-end phone. It seems like Micromax is targeting the budget audience more, rather than the mid-range or high-end audience. Micromax Canvas Xpress Q413 is a decent budget phone, which has nothing new to offer in the budget category.
Micromax Canvas Xpress comes with a 5-inch screen, 2GB of RAM, 8MP Rear Camera, 2MP Front Facing Camera, 1Ghz Processor, 16GB Internal Storage and 2000mAh battery. The phone will handle your day to day usage easily, you can do multitasking, play low to mid range games and perform other basic stuff with ease. 1Ghz processor seems less, but in theory, a low-resolution screen coupled with least powerful processor gives you a very good battery life. But, that being said, this phone is not made for the power hungry users!
What’s great about this phone is that it is 4G enabled so you would be able to enjoy the uninterrupted high-speed connection. With 8MP Camera, you should be able to take good quality photos in daylight or with enough lighting but during low light and artificial lighting, its f/2.0 aperture won’t help much, and the 2MP front camera should do okay for casual selfies, but it’s not intended for users who take a lot of selfies. Design wise the phone looks pretty okay with block rectangular design with some sharp edges. Its competition on the market
Design wise, the Canvas Xpress Q413 looks pretty okay with block rectangular design and sharp edges. Priced below Rs.15,000 the phone offers competition to Colors Elite E15 and Samsung GalaxyJ2. Colors Elite E15 outshines its competition with its huge 5,000mAh battery while the J2 sports a Super AMOLED display and a fairly good camera which we don’t see on a budget phone.
