Micromax Canvas 5 Slate - Expert Reviews


It has been over a decade since Micromax stepped into the Indian smartphone market and brought about a change in trend. The change in trend involved bringing out smartphones with good specs but at budget prices. The Canvas series has been very popular for the company as it gave tough competition to the new Chinese entrants. In that series, Micromax Canvas 5 comes as a mid-tier device priced at Rs.11,999. The device competes against brands like Moto G second generation and models from Samsung, HTC and Sony.


Micromax Canvas 5 is probably one of the more premium looking smartphones we have seen from the Indian smartphone maker in recent times. It is of slim build that is quite light in weight. The gadget does feel quite nice when held in the hand and fits in the palm quite nicely. The smartphone weighs 143 grams and comes with a length of 148mm, a breadth of 73.6mm and a thickness of 8.3mm.


Micromax Canvas 5 features a 5.2 inches BIG FHD capacitive touchscreen that has some solid numbers backing it up including a fabulous pixel density of 423ppi along with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. These numbers definitely transfer into actual performance with users getting a brilliant display quality accompanied by rich colour saturation and accuracy.


There is some heavy pixel strength that backs the camera department, with the primary shutter featuring a 13MP sensor and the secondary shutter a 5MP sensor. The rear camera is flash enabled that comes with a 5P lens and a blue optical filter facility enhancing the richness of photographs snapped. There are plenty of modes to select that include picture mode, night shot mode, panorama mode, face beauty mode, and professional mode. For the front camera, there is a selfie mode as well as users not only get to snap self images but also make 3G video calls as well.


Micromax Canvas 5 is built to run fast and load heavy applications, for it features a 1.3GHz octa-core processor from MediaTek. Furthermore, the RAM is of a mammoth 3GB, which is simply marvellous for a gadget of such price range. As a result, the device is able to run some of the most hardware demanding games that the Android world has to offer.

Operating system and UI

Micromax Canvas 5 works with the latest software platform of Android Lollipop 5.1 that opens up the door for users to download latest games and apps. Besides, users would be able to benefit from Lollipop 5.1's new features and abilities - like being able to auto connect to Wi-Fi network with ease and at a fast pace. Aesthetically too, the device’s interface is far more clean and organized with features like notifications on lock screen, quick settings etc.


This is another segment with the device that really makes it stand out and deliver value for money. The device comes as 4G enabled, which means users can access super fast Internet without any issues. The spectrum facilitates a stupendous downloading speed of up to 150Mbps. Data can be exchanged with other gadgets via USB port and Bluetooth, whereas Internet can be shared through various tethering elements including Wi-Fi hot spot, Wi-Fi direct and Dual Band.


The swiping experience with Micromax Canvas 5 is more than satisfactory as the smartphone is backed by various sensors including Compass sensor, Accelerometer sensor, Ambient light sensor and Proximity sensor. However, there are some sensors we would have liked the device to have but are found to be absent. These include Temperature sensor, Barometer sensor and Gyroscope sensor.


Micromax Canvas 5 is stretchable as far as its memory capacity is concerned with the microSD card slot having a threshold of 64GB. The smartphone already has an internal memory of 16GB, out of which users would be able to make use of around 11GB only. The remaining 5GB of memory will be used for application installation. Overall, users get a lot to work and can conveniently store songs, games, images and videos.


Micromax Canvas 5 is powered by a 2900mAh standard lithium-ion battery that is capable of producing a reliable amount of talk time and standby time. Whenever a gadget is backed by a battery of around 3000mAh, users can be rest assured that a decent amount of usage time gets delivered and the device delivers just that with a talk time of up to 10 hours and a standby time of up to 275 hours. The gadget also provides a long multimedia usage time, which includes listening to songs, watching movies, playing games or even surfing the web.
