Micromax’s New 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.
