Display – The smartphone comes with a 5.0 inch IPS LCD display with HD (1280*720) resolution. The resolution is comparatively weak compared to the Yureka Plus with Full HD resolution.
Camera – The front camera on the smartphone has a 5 Megapixel camera with a dedicated flash for clicking selfies even in the low light. There is a 13 Megapixel Samsung Sensor (S5K3L2XX03) resolution camera at the back with Autofocus and led flash. There are very few smartphones which come with a dedicated flash with the front camera; the Micromax Canvas Pulse serve that need well.
Processor – The Micromax Pulse 4G is powered by the MediaTek Octa-Core processor 6753 clocked at 1.3 GHz. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core processor powers the Yu Yureka Plus.
Ram and Storage – The Micromax Pulse 4G boasts of 3 GB of RAM to run the Android Lollipop 5.1 OS smoothly. The smartphone has an essential 16 GB internal storage which is further expandable up to 32 GB via micro-sd card.
Operating System – The smartphone runs on the Android Lollipop 5.1 OS there is no word by the company about the update to the Android Marshmallow 6.0.
Connectivity – The Micromax Canvas Pulse 4G has dual sim support and as the name suggests offers high-speed 4G connectivity along with 3G and 2G.
Battery Life – The smartphone has a rather weak battery capacity of 2100 mAH. The Yureka Plus has a much larger 2500 mAH capacity battery.
Thoughts – What we liked in the Micromax Canvas Pulse 4G is the 3 GB RAM, a fast Octa-core processor and a selfie camera which gives some respite to party-goers looking for taking some nightlife selfies. What the Micromax Canvas Pulse misses on is the battery life the 2100 mAH battery may need a recharge in the middle of the day if you use your smartphone as much as I do.
