Micromax Canvas 4 Plus: The Newest Kid on the Block
Micromax did bring forth a revolution with the Canvas 4 being launched barely a year back. It’s the fag end of 2014 and Canvas 4 already feels archaic to most of us. The occasion is largely fitting as one expects the arrival of the much hyped Canvas 4 Plus, readily indicating a feature boost over its predecessor. With certain high end specifications and an enviable body at its disposal, this device is up for grabs at some of the leading online stores.
We did have the privilege of laying our hands on this fabled gadget and the feeling was literally out of this world. A detailed review would be helpful to all the potential buyers and even we would get to share our experience with the world. Hope this helps!
Classy is what best defines the build quality of Canvas 4 Plus which has a much improved structure over the Canvas 4. The silver bezel feels exotic whereas the golden back panel comes with a much improved grip. A loose volume rocker was highlighted in the previous iteration and this anomaly has been dealt with, this time over. This is one sleek device which is slated at a meager 7mm and makes for a great carry. Again one can surely go for this light-weighted device which has to be handled with care, as who wants to drop such a classy damsel even if its protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass.
This happens to be the device’s best bet as it combines the exquisite AMOLED panel with the 5 inch console. The amalgamation feels perfect as the 720p interface gives way to a crispier and sharper display. With the blacks and other colors being set up at contrasting levels, this AMOLED display is bound to be a success. We did vouch for the IPS panel with an LCD backdrop as certain monochromatic shades did fit in better but battery suggestive pixel quality with the present lot is something to look forward to. A baffling 1280x720 pixels resolution is up for grabs and the clarity is sure to be envied upon even by the highest end gadgets within the same price bracket.
This device features two cameras; one at the rear acting as the primary lens whereas the secondary front facing camera is placed strategically as well. One would surely be impressed by the quality of images the 13MP primary unit takes while supporting full HD recordings as well. The autofocus is a given but the highlight stills remains to be the superior recording quality which would surely keep other camera requirements at bay. The 5MP unit sitting on top of the set comes with an auto-focus feature as well and clicks out brilliant selfies. Camera applications have been pre-assigned with the object tracker being the most influentiaLED flashlightl inclusion. The Canvas 4 also had comparable features but the lenses here are highly improved. With the included, this monster is capable of clicking great pictures even if the light is on the lower side. An interactive camera module followed by a high-end rear unit makes it a must buy.
This variant comes with a generous 16GB storage capacity which can be expanded according to the user requirements. With only 11GB being available for the users, this is still a better option than most of the other gadgets priced similarly. Multitasking is made easy with the 1GB RAM which combines class with high-end resourcefulness. We weren’t quite happy with this RAM allotment as Canvas 4 already featured the same and this is bound to affect the gadget’s performance in the long run.
The chipset, MT6592 True Octa-core from MediaTek has been included with the device which has an amazing clock speed of 1.7GHz. Faster performances are now guaranteed, as the core numbers have increased followed by a better clock speed, facilitating seamless multitasking. With a dedicated Mali 450 GPU available, one can keep on playing those high-end games like Riptide and Asphalt without lags or stutters.
It was surprising to see that the Canvas 4 Plus sported a 2000mAh battery as compared to the 2500mAh already allotted to the Canvas Nitro. This was a bit baffling as Canvas 4 Plus was supposed to be a high end set and the Octa-core chipset does require that additional firepower. 7 hours of 3G talk time is still acceptable whereas the 200+ hours of standby time actually falters in the long run as who would keep such a beauty on a standby mode for nine days straight.
If the given price range is what you could muster, then Canvas 4 Plus from Micromax is certainly the best option followed by an excellent camera and a sturdy build. Although the RAM allotment is on the lower side, the fast processor more or less makes up for this drawback.
