Micromax has launched the new smartphone for budget smartphone buyers exclusively on Snapdeal. The new Micromax Canvas 5 Lite Q462 has gone on sale priced at Rs. 6499.
Specs and Details: Micromax Canvas 5 Lite
The smartphone comes with a leather-back finish and is available in black and brown colors. For starters, the Micromax Canvas 5 Lite looks decent for the price tag and offers a 5.0-inch display with HD (1280*720) pixels resolution. It has 293 PPi.
Furthermore, the design is neat with a circular on display home icon. Also, the back is intriguing with brown/black leather around the camera ring and the new Micromax logo. The leatherback cover makes the smartphone easy to hold and improves grip in comparison to the plastic devices.
The Micromax Canvas 5 Lite comes with Reliance JIO 4G Preview offer and supports 4G LTE as well as VOLTE. You can use the smartphone with a 4G network of Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea as well. The device has got support for 3G /2G and WIFI along with the high-speed 4G network.
Powering the device is the MediaTek 6735p Quad-Core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz and has 2 GB of Ram. Moreover, the processor is passable considering the price.
Fixed Storage Space is the low Point
Further, it comes with 16 GB of internal storage and egregiously you can’t add a micro-sd card to it. So, the storage is fixed and the user would get around 11 GB of storage as the rest of the space is occupied by the OS and pre-installed Apps.
The camera on the Canvas 5 Lite is 8 Megapixel shooter at the rear with an LED flash. Additionally, there is a 5-megapixel front camera to click selfies, much better compared to most 2 MP camera devices in this price range.
Unceremoniously, it comes with dated Android Lollipop 5.1 OS, released almost 2 years back by Google. Micromax should have at least bundled the Android Marshmallow 6.0 with the Canvas 5 Lite.
Lastly, it offers 2000 mAH capacity battery and can deliver up to 150 hours of standby time, and 4.5 hours of talk time. The battery is not very large either, however, it will be able to pull the smartphone all day with low usage. And if you are an enthusiastic user you may find a need to charge it more often.
Shubhajit Sen, Chief Marketing Officer, Micromax Informatics said, “Micromax has been relentless in its pursuit of launching Smartphones that combine superior performance with contemporary styling at accessible prices. The launch of the Canvas 5 Lite is the latest milestone in our resolve to offer the best products at competitive price points with 4G LTE and VOLTE support.
