Micromax has made a great response on the Indian market for the past 2 years, the lots of hype regarding the Canvas 4 launch reveals the actual truth. But I must say this expectation comes to an end after the launch, many got disappointed with the specification and price.
1] Expecting Octa-Core Processor
The high hopes regarding the Octa-core processor fails and goes debuted with a quad-core processor that really forces pre-order’s to hit the refund button. The funny fact is that, it doesn’t even come nearer to the performance of Galaxy S4 which is powered by a fastest octa-core chipset.
2] Slightly Outdated OS Version
If Canvas 4 is a flagship device of Micromax then why don’t they add latest OS version, instead they added Jelly Bean 4.2.1 which is slightly outdated. But you may have the option to upgrade to Key Lime Pie or higher in the future, that really comes with an expectation.
3] RAM Disappoints
The buyers were expecting 2GB RAM but actually debuted with 1GB which is not a standard for a flagship device.
4] No Variants
Canvas 4 comes with 16GB RAM. You will not get any variants like 32GB or 64GB. But you can expand the memory using MicroSD card up to 32GB.
5] Expecting 1080p (FHD)
We were expecting a Full HD display with 1080p but they added 720p which is not coming up to the trend nowadays. Even though the handsets pack with Corning Gorilla Glass and True HD IPS Screen we feel the diversity in the above drawback will not make you buy the device.
6] High Price
Neglecting the 13MP camera and 16GB Internal memory, it actually looks similar to Canvas HD which priced around 13k. So the 18k is considered to be a higher for this specification and also you get Gionee Elife E6 with better specs in this price range.
The only eye-catching feature is the Camera; you will get 13MP Rear Shooter along with vertical Panorama (with anti-shake) and multiple face-detection. It can also capture 99 pictures in 15 seconds using the burst mode feature. The 5 MP Front camera will not kill you during video chat.
Even though the above disappoints of Canvas 4 lacks many buyers, the unique feature like Blow to Unlock and Smart Gesture feature can make a hook in the Indian markets.
