Micromax Canvas Magnus A117 White - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

India's very own smartphone manufacturing firm Micromax is breaking grounds as the company prepares to expand itself globally and explore new opportunities. The company is slowly but surely enhancing its brand value, which some people may not agree with, but if Micromax continues at the path of progress it is in, the statement may become true sooner rather than later. There has been an array of smartphones released last season from Micromax, but this season has been slightly different - for the company has shown signs of slowing down as far as the release of the number of models are concerned. The Canvas series however, continues to make an impact with the current model looking formidable and titled Micromax Canvas Magnus A117. The smartphone looks premium in terms of feel and looks, and features a 5 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16 million color resolution and a pixel density of 294ppi. We would have expected more from the latter but the resolution has kept us interested with 720 by 1280 pixels.

The oval shape of Micromax Canvas Magnus A117 makes it easy for the user to hold the smartphone, while the material used for its construction also gives the user - a classier feel. The standby time provided by the smartphone is up to 180 hours, which is way below what we would have expected from a device of such scale. The 2000mAh standard lithium-ion battery does please us with the talk time it produces that stretches up to 7 hours that is, more than enough in most conditions. As far as the hardware of the gadget goes, nothing instills more confidence than a 1.5GHz quad core processor that is further boosted by 1GB of RAM. Therefore, there should be no worries when it comes to the working of the system and handling of multiple tasks. The gadget supports 2G and 3G technologies, for it comes embedded with dual SIMs.

The music and video players are healthy features of Micromax Canvas Magnus A117 wherein, they enable the saving of the desired set of songs and movies. In addition, plenty of songs, videos, games and images can be stored thanks to the 4GB internal memory of the gadget. One has to remember that only 2.6GB of the internal memory can be utilized for actual storage as the rest go out for application installation.

Other data connectivity features of the smartphone are nothing more than the usual namely, USB port and Bluetooth. The download speed of the gadget is formidable at 42Mbps.

The smartphone is available in two alternative colors of Black and White and both of them look really good. The camera department is important for the success of any smartphone and Micromax Canvas Magnus A117 does not compromise on it by having a 12 megapixels primary camera and a 2 megapixels secondary camera respectively. The resolution for snapping images via the primary shutter stands wonderful at 4000 by 3000 pixels, giving enough substance for the clarity of the final images. Loads of applications can be downloaded from the web as the smartphone runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 OS, which is two sub-versions behind the latest Jelly Bean offering even as Android KitKat is already out in the market.
