Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 White & Gold - Expert Reviews

Introduction

It has been an inconsistent ride for Micromax in the past few months but by the end of the season, it would have still managed to stay among the top selling smartphone firms. The developing Indian economy has been quite lucrative for the company since its inception but with the rise of Chinese companies like Oppo and Gionee, things have started to change. The road ahead is not going to be that easy for Micromax. Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290  is another Micromax creation that aims to provide big at a smaller price. The smartphone has a 4.7 inches screen and features Android KitKat 4.4.2 operating system. The device may get an update to Android KitKat 4.4.4 but for Android 5.0 L, we are not that optimistic. But it is the hardware of the device that should grab your attention with a 1.4GHz octa-core MediaTek processor that would any day bolster the capabilities of a smartphone to a great extent. Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 also has 1GB of RAM, which should provide a faster speed for resource access, across the system.

Design wise, the gadget looks nice and has a nice glossy back panel while the bezels at the front are also well placed. There are three colors in which the smartphone is available, including Pure Black, Black Gold and White Gold respectively.

Operating system and UI

Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 has a 4.7 inches IPS LCD display that is powered by a 312ppi of pixel density and a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. The touchscreen is smooth and responsive, however, we have seen better performances from the likes of Nitro. 

Other Features

Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 has a music player that is compatible with various formats and lets the user play personally selected songs. The sound quality is alright with the loudspeakers but at higher volumes, some decrease in quality is observed. The video player works well too for watching videos in landscape mode. FM radio is also provided for listening to the desired local radio stations. 

Camera

Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 has an 8 megapixels primary camera at the back with a fast shutter speed that snaps images with a decent quality, especially at outdoors. There is no HDR, which we would have loved to see but there is the presence of LED flash, panorama and auto focus, which should please photography lovers. The presence of a 5 megapixels secondary front camera is sharp and more than ideal for snapping nice and crisp selfies or even shoot videos at 720p resolution.

Connectivity

Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 offers a downloading speed of 21.1Mbps and an uploading speed of 5.76Mpbs, which is not the fastest we have come across but certainly a reasonable one. GPRS, EDGE and Wi-Fi are the main sources of accessing web while the users can cash in on Wi-Fi hot spot for tethering activities. 

Memory

The internal memory of 8GB gets reduced to 5.8GB for users to store data like songs, games, images and applications. For those who would like to have heavy data on their devices can opt for a 32GB microSD card slot (external memory). The gadget also has 50GB of Google drive space. Thus there is no dearth of memory space in this device.

Other Features

Games like Temple Run 3, NFS, and Virtual Table Tennis run smoothly on the device without any glitches. Also, plenty of other apps and games can be downloaded from the Google play store that comes preinstalled in the device and that includes WhatsApp, Viber and Facebook messenger to name a few.

Battery

The 2000mAh standard lithium-ion battery of Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 churns out a very decent 7 hours of talk time while the standby time is also well within the acceptable range of up to 180 hours. 

Connectivity

Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 lets the user exchange data with other devices via USB port and Bluetooth. The presence of Bluetooth v4.0 ensures faster data transferring speed. The gadget is compatible with 2G and 3G SIMs, with the latter running at frequencies of 900 and 2100MHz.

Other Features

Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290, when compared to Moto G has a slightly bigger screen with 4.7 inches for the former and 4.5 inches for the latter. Both the devices have IPS LCD displays and have almost the same pixel density with 312ppi for Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 and 326ppi for Moto G respectively.

Moto G runs on Android KitKat 4.4.4 operating system and would soon get an upgrade to Android 5.0 L as well. Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 on the other hand, would not get the upgrade but does have Android KitKat 4.4.2 by default. On the hardware front, both the devices have 1GB of RAM. Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 comes with an octa-core MediaTek processor whereas Moto G runs on a quad-core Snapdragon processor. There is no microSD card slot in Moto G but Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 comes with a 32GB microSD card slot.

Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 has an 8 megapixels primary camera and a 5 megapixels secondary camera, whereas Moto G works with a 5 megapixels primary camera and a 1.3 megapixels secondary camera. Moto G has a non-removable battery backup whereas Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 comes with a removable battery wherein, the former has a strength of 2070mAh and the latter a strength of 2000mAh. Even though the difference in the battery backup is not much, the difference in the amount of talk time provided is huge with up to 24 hours for Moto G and up to 7 hours for Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290.

Other Features

August 14, 2014: Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 is another Canvas model that offers an octa-core processor at an economical price of Rs.10,200. The gadget has some impressive specs in the form of an 8 megapixels primary camera and a 5 megapixels secondary camera. The gadget runs on Android KitKat 4.4.2 software platform and is powered by a 2000mAh standard lithium-ion battery. The gadget would be up against the likes of Motorola Moto G and Xiaomi Mi3. The highlights of the device are as follows:

          *          4.7 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen

          *          1GB RAM

          *         8GB internal memory + 32GB microSD card slot
