Micromax Canvas 6: specification, features and performance
After Micromax Canvas 6 Pro, the latest from the Micromax is just simply Micromax Canvas 6. The new device is not as same as pro, may be the specifications are same but it has few good additional features with much improvised aesthetic sense. The new device can possibly boost the company’s reputation in the market.
Looks of Micromax Canvas 6:
One conspicuous change in the Canvas 6 is its unibody metal chassis and it looks better in champagne gold. The modification is very good with smooth cut edges to add a touch of class. The design is good but one may find it similar to the Gionee or Honor Smartphone. The metal added in the design makes it little heavy. The grip is good due to thickened sides but the smooth texture of the metal makes it risky for sweaty palms.
The 5.5-inch IPS display gets a pure full-HD resolution, which means the screen result is sharp and colors are realistic. Brightness option works well to use it in the sunlight. It has a notification LED on the top, along with the 8-megapixel front camera. The rare camera is 13-megapixel. It has LED flash and fingerprint sensor. The sensor should not be considered great, as it is not that fast, but it works ok.
The device comes with a charger (7.5W), data cable, screen guard, SIM tray ejector tool, and an in-ear headset. Overall, it makes the phone capable for competition in today’s market. There is no Gorilla Glass used in this phone, which most people look for.
Specifications of Micromax Canvas 6
Canvas 6 is designed in accordance with the lifestyle demographic. Micromax Canvas 6 has powerful octa-core SoC from MediaTek (MT6753T), 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of onboard storage. The internal storage is expandable up to 128GB using a microSD card. There are few other standard specifications, which include, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, USB OTG, GPS, FM radio and 4G LTE for both SIM slots. It comes with the version of Android Lollipop.
How Micromax Canvas 6 Performs:
If you talk on your phone for long hours, the grip may disturb you as it becomes difficult to hold after a while. The phone does not face overheating condition, even if it has a metal body. It does get warm after charging and playing games for long hours, which is normal. The phone is not made for the music lovers as the audio quality is ok with the mono speaker and average with the headset (the one comes with the phone).
The rear camera comes with PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus) so it gets focused with decent speed. But the camera does not give the same result in low light and ends up with bad picture quality.
The front camera takes passable pictures but nothing to be proud off. The camera app doesn’t have many alterations from all on budget Micromax phones.
The 3000mAh battery survived 8 hours and 37 minutes in our video loop test, which needs to be considering pretty average. Under regular use, goes a little more than a day before getting lowered.
Final call on Micromax Canvas 6:
If we compare both the phones, Micromax Canvas 6 Pro and Micromax Canvas 6 are available at the almost similar price, but the company is targeting two different demographics, which is a pretty good strategy. However, it doesn’t make any sense as Canvas 6 is the obvious choice between the two. In comparison, Canvas 6 is the better one because of its metal body, fingerprint sensor, storage capacity and battery life.
