Micromax Canvas Gold A300 REVIEW:


The Canvas Gold A300 is yet another flagship device from Micromax which aims to give a tough fight to the other competitors in the segment. Though the earlier seen the Canvas Knight came up with great specs, somehow the performance and battery life weakened the phone’s struggle in the battle. And now we have the Gold A300 which also has a decent spec sheet like the Knight, so how well the performance goes in the real world? Let us find out.


Design & Display:
Like Canvas Knight, Micromax has tried to give the best looks as much as possible for this phone. The phone looks decent and is made of aluminium at the back and sides. The added gold color gives it a more premium look. Due to the shape, rounded edges and metallic back, once again like the Canvas Knight, this phone too looks like iPhone 5s. The device is thinner at roughly 6.9mm and though it feels heavy, it gives a good feel when held in hand. Micromax has gone for capacitive keys like most of their devices. Overall the design and build quality is quite improved and impressive.
This phone has a 5.5 inch 1080p display with 401ppi. Though this feels awesome, in the real world the display is just good but not really great as the specs say. Viewing angles are wide but color reproduction should have been better. Overall, if the colors were really looking better, this display could have been a big blow to most of the phones in the segment.


This time Micromax didn’t disappoint us and they have given Android 4.4.2 KitKat on this device. The UI looks similar to what we have been seeing in most of the Micromax phones and is mainly stock along with few Micromax tweaks and preloaded apps. The UI runs smoother and we didn’t face any sluggishness.


Camera & Audio:
Like the Canvas Knight, this device too comes with 16MP rear camera and a 5MP cam at the front. The camera takes quite good pictures and has auto focus and touch to focus. The images produced have a pretty good detail and doesn’t lose any colors. But shutter speed is a bit slow and this possibly makes the image lose the details sometimes. The UI is pretty neat and there are a bunch of tweaks and modes to experiment of picture quality. Daylight and even low light images came really well and we are impressed the way images come up with very minimal noise. Audio quality is loud enough but there is some distortion if you increase the volume. The music quality is not so great but the headphones provided do a decent job. Overall the Canvas Gold has a really good camera and shines among most of the phones in the segment.


Connectivity & Additional Features:
This phone supports dual sim along with Wifi802.11, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS. We didn’t face any issues with network reception and call quality is good. Call clarity is also good even with the loudspeaker. This phone too, like the Canvas Knight comes with 32GB internal memory but no memory card slot.


Performance & Battery:
The device is equipped with Mediatek 2GHz octa core processor with 2 GB RAM. We know that KitKat is not really optimised well for octa core processors but how far this phone does perform? Yes performance is much improved. Multitasking is a breeze and the device runs smooth without any lags. This phone can even handle most of the heavy games and we don’t see any issues at all. Only issue would be the GPU’s performance could have been better. Even with rigorous gaming, heat is minimal and the device performs well. Battery given is of 2300mAh and ofcourse it does last till the end of day under normal usage. But a bit of more of gaming or video playback, you see the battery draining up quickly. Instead they could have provided a bigger battery for a performance beast like this.


Excellent performance
Decent looks and build quality
Good camera
Comes with KitKat


Battery life could have been better


So far the Canvas Gold managed to impress us in almost all the aspects. The design, camera, performance and smooth UI and finally the price – all of it give a major strength to the device to face the competition. If the battery could have been any better, nothing could have stopped the device to claim the throne. Of course Micromax might not have the brand value as most of the foreign OEMs like Samsung, Sony or any other has. And moreover the after sales support needs to be improved well for Micromax. If you can adjust with these, then what else should bother you to pick this up?
