Micromax’s New Canvas 5 Lite

Micromax Canvas 5 Lite

The variety of upper-range budget smartphones (i.e. phones priced between Rs. 5000 to Rs. 10,000) available is growing day-by-day. Indian technology manufacturer Micromax, recently launched the latest model in their line of smartphones, the Micromax Canvas 5 Lite.

Fitted with a touchscreen of 5 inches, this phones has a display resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels. The HD IPS display offers clear images and fairly bright colours. Though the quality is not full-HD, this should not be a problem for browsing the internet or other basic app usage.

The Canvas 5 Lite is packed with a MediaTek MT6735P SoC quad-core processor that runs at 1.3GHz, and a RAM of 2GB. This should allow a user to comfortably perform multitasking, such as using the internet and the camera at the same time. While playing heavy Android games may pose a bit of a problem and cause some slight lag, the device should function smoothly when playing basic games. The phone comes with the Android v5.1 Lollipop OS pre-installed.

Micromax has fitted the smartphone with a primary camera of 8 megapixels on the back, and a front camera of 5 megapixels. An LED flash can be found on the rear, to help with capturing images in low light conditions. For selfie lovers, this phone camera may be a bit disappointing.

Users will enjoy the storage capacity of the Canvas 5 Lite, which includes an inbuilt 16GB. For those who require a device with a larger storage capacity, this phone is not for you, as the memory cannot be expanded.

One major drawback of the Canvas 5 Lite is the battery life. Powered by a battery that has a capacity of 2000mAh, this phone delivers approximately 5 hours of talk-time. The phone is fitted with a number of sensors including, an accelerometer, an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor. There are also several connectivity options like GPS, FM radio, WiFi, Bluetooth and 4G as well.

This device is sleek and certainly stylish. The rear panel has a deep-brown leather finish that makes a bold statement and gives the smartphone a premium look. Priced at Rs. 6499, this smartphone is a good device for those looking for a feature-packed phone on a budget.

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

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
