Review: Micromax Canvas Xpress 4G
Review: Micromax Canvas Xpress 4G: not a bulky device If you’re tight about your budget, then you might just prefer the Micromax 4G smart phones. In the past couple of months company has launched over 7 phones in the sub ‘15,000 price range with support for Indian 4G bands.
The latest phone in their arsenal is Canvas Xpress 4G -one of their cheapest 4G phones. Micromax has been trying something new with the design of its latest phones.The Canvas Xpress 4G is a budget offering at Rs 6,599. This phone is available on open sale on Flipkart. 5-inch 720p HD display, 1 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM & 16GB internal memory (microSD card supported) . 8MP A/F rear camera with LED Flash, 2MP front camera, 2,000 mAh battery, Android 5.1, 4G LTE. With the Canvas Xpress 4G, you get a slightly curved design on the back, a more rectangular shape and a metal frame on the sides.On the back, Micromax has gone for a metallic, dark blue-colour with the rear camera bang in the centre and the Micromax logo below.
Considering the price point, the colour and the design makes the Xpress 4G stand out. The 5-inch HD display is actually quite good and given that this is not a bulky device, it is easy to handle with one hand. Browsing, watching videos, etc should not be a problem on this phone’s screen. From a gaming perspective, I think this is pretty decent for its budget pricing. The rear camera is the second strong feature of this phone and while it is not the fastest camera in a phone, it handles some colours like blue very well. The selfie camera is another story though and has woeful performance especially indoors. But then this is a budget offering so this is not exactly the worst trade-off. The battery on the Xpress 4G is also nothing to boast about. Even when the smartphone had no SIM and was just on WiFi, the battery would drain out in less than 7-8 hours. The call-quality on this phone is not great and the other person’s voice sounds like it is coming from a great distance. In totality this is a best deal for those who has small budget.
