Last year, most of mobile phone manufacturers have concentrated on high-end specs, solid build quality, enhanced battery life, better user experience and affordability. And with the developing technology, budget smartphones have developed a new meaning altogether. Previously, most of the smartphones under Rs. 10,000 price range were gaining everyone’s eyeballs. But now, Rs. 5,000-Rs 7,000 smartphones are captivating the budget handset market.

Micromax has started making a slightly more costly Micromax’s Canvas Xpress 2 E313. The gadget contests head on with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 2, Moto E and Yu Yuphoria among others. In this review, we have tried to figure out where the phone stands.

Design

Have one look at the Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 E313 and you will observe how alike the phone is to the Canvas Spark. The back of both the devices is almost alike. Just like the Canvas Spark, Micromax Canvas Express 2 E313 also has a sturdy build and looks good despite being priced at Rs. 5,999.

The back finish is soft and smooth, which helps you in having a strong grip over the phone. At 138 grams, this handset is not going to contend against the lightest and thinnest smartphones. The body entirely made of plastic; but in terms of the looks and finish you will find it is a better device compared to other phones in the same price range.

Display

The Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 E313 comes with a 5-inch display and the images and text look good on the screen but the colours look a bit washed out. The Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 offers awesome display angles but under the sun visibility is poor. Also the screen of the phone easily gets smudged.

Performance

Micromax has been marketing the Canvas Xpress 2 E313 as the most reasonably priced octa-core phone in the market as of now. Just to remind you, this smartphone is powered by the MediaTek 6592M SoC, along with 1GB of RAM. There is also 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD by up to 32GB. Given the specs, there is no reason why this phone will not deliver the best. In terms of battery, it succeeds with a 2500mAh battery. With medium-to-heavy usage, you will be easily make it throughout the day.

Camera
Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 E313 is loaded with 13MP rear which gives you great shots in perfect light conditions. The colours are bright and crisp. The camera is quick but for some weird reason takes its own time to focus. Also, the pictures clicked in dull/low light conditions are granular. Also, the front camera does not meet up the expectations, so avoid taking selfies.

Verdict

There is no contradicting that Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 E313 succeeds to deliver great value for money. It is a peppy phone that offers a good display. You might get bit underwhelmed with the camera and the touch performance; but we still maintain that at the price it is being offered, the phone is a brilliant comprehensive smartphone.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
