Micromax Canvas 5 Overview

Published :

The Good

  • Good specs
  • Competitively priced
  • SD card slot

The Bad

  • There are better alternatives
  • slow updates

The Bottom Line

Although its a great device on its own its in a highly competitive price bracket and doesn't feel like it does enough to stand out.

The Micromax Canvas 5 is the highly anticipated successor to the Canvas 4. Although Micromax no longer has the grip on the market as it used to have at one point, they still make phones with great hardware at affordable rates and these phones have their own group of customers. The Canvas 5 comes after a really long time and it was worth the wait, as it is extremely competitively priced, it actually comes cheaper than what the Canvas 4 was priced on it’s release. Although there have been many variants of the Canvas 4 in between, the direct differences between the original and the Canvas 5 is plenty.



Design and Build:

The Canvas 5 is fairly well built, the back cover has got a leather like finish though it’s plastic which has been shaped to look like leather. The metal edges are a nice touch and the device feels good in hands. The back cover is removable and you can find the dual sim card lots and the SD card slot under it, though the battery is non-removable unlike the Canvas 4 which had a removable battery.


Camera Performance:

The Canvas 5 has 13 MP camera on the back side and a 5 MP camera on the front side. The front facing selfie camera also has a LED flash which is great for clicking selfies at any time of the day. The rear camera has a dual LED flash as well. The rear camera does fine when clicking pictures and it’s kind of quick at it too. The main camera though captures only 1080p videos skipping on 4K.



The phone has a 5.2 inch 1080p IPS LCD display which is an improvement over the 5 inch 720p display on the Canvas 4. The IPS LCD panel means the display will have great natural color reproduction and great viewing angles. There’s also a 2.5D touch feature which tries to mimic the 3D touch on the iPhone 6S/ 6S plus. Games run pretty smoothly on the phone which means the hardware is pretty good and it’s not so laggy either. There’s also a preloaded software called Game booster which helps run games smoother and lag free, thanks to the 3 gigs of RAM as well.



The phone is powered by the Mediatek MT6753 octa core chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz and Mali T720MP3 GPU. The chip and gpu may not be the best in the market, but it gets the job done rather well, so you won’t have to worry about it. The phone also has 3 gigs of RAM and 16 gigs of internal storage, with the option of expansion upto 64 GB with the dedicated SD card slot.



The phone comes with Micromax’s own UI on Android 5.1 with a planned upgrade to Android 6.0 in the near future. The phone though comes with a lot of preloaded bloatware which is not something you’d actually want in your phone. The good thing here is that, the bloatware can all be removed which is really good.


Battery Life:

The Canvas 5 has a 2900 mAh non-removable battery which is much improved over the 2000 mAh battery on its predecessor.  The phone should last you a day on normal usage which is pretty decent.



The Micromax Canvas 5 is a really good device and for the specs it provides it stands out among its competition at least on paper. There are good alternatives to this phone in the market right now though, but for those who do not have trust in Xiaomi, they can take this phone into consideration. The phone is a big improvement over the Canvas 5, and the 2.5 D touch is intriguing
