Micromax Canvas Win W121 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

This is the first time Micromax has come up with a smartphone that goes beyond the ubiquitos Android. The chosen one is called Micromax Canvas Win W121 with Windows 8 as the operating system. It can be inferred from the launch of Win W121 that both, Microsoft and Micromax are trying to target budget users by launching Windows Phone 8.1 handsets. In addition to W121, Micromax has also come up with Canvas Win W092. Micromax Canvas Win W121 is powered by a powerful quad-core processor (having Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chip) clocked at a speed of 1.2GHz. This handset has a HD IPS display with a 5 inches screen size. The dual SIM capability of the smartphone helps users to use two phone numbers at the price of one phone. It comes with many sensors such as ambient light sensor, gyroscope or gravity sensor, proximity sensor, and accelerometer.

Despite having 5 inches of display size, this mobile fits perfectly in hand. It’s slim and round edges makes it comfortable to be used with one hand. Leather finish at the backside makes the phone look that much more stylish and perfect for a solid grip. All the buttons can be found at the bottom and they are soft buttons rather than virtual ones. One button is sported by both the spines wherein, one is the power button and other, the volume rocker. However, what is missing surprisingly is the camera button. Silver finish at the edges give this smartphone a premium look. If you compare W121 with W092, the use of superior quality material as well as built are starkly noticeable. Though the screen colors are vivid and the viewing angles are good, users will surely miss the protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology. 

Operating system and UI

Users will get a familiar tiled user interface at the home screen as generally found on Windows powered smartphones. Some of the new enhancements that users will find enthralling include universal app support and Action center. However, it remains to be seen whether USB OTG functionality will work in Micromax Canvas Win W121 too. This mobile comes with a display screen size of 5 inches and the technology used on screen is IPS HD, which means, the resolution is of 1280 x 720 pixels. High-end software and hardware specifications make this smartphone seamless to use.

It runs on Windows Phone 8.1 OS and is powered by a quad-core processor that clocks at a speed of 1.2GHz wherein, the chipset used is Qualcomm Snapdragon 200. This 32-bit processor in Micromax Canvas Win W121 is based on a design strategy known as RISC or Reduced Instruction Set Computing that enables faster execution of instruction. The use of 1GB of RAM and internal storage capacity of 8GB make the funtioning smoother, even when lots of data are stored in the mobile. Graphics with the help of Snapdragon 200 performs better, giving better experience in case of UI and performance.

Other Features

Micromax Canvas Win W121 brings rich multimedia experience to its users. The audio and video files that can be played on this mobile include MP3, 3GP WMV, WMA, WAV, and MP4 formats. TBD radio is available in this handset too and some of the messaging options available to you are MMS, SMS (threaded view), IM, Push Email, and Email.

Camera

The users will be elated to get great quality cameras in this smartphone. The primary camera at the rear end of the phone has an 8 megapixels sensor and is well supported by LED flash. Also, the secondary camera at the front end has a 2 megapixels sensor. The capabilities may seem usual to many but there is a paradigm shift created by Micromax. Dual camera settings are usual in Android based smartphones. But Windows powered phones such as Lumia’s come with only one camera. However, Micromax Canvas Win W121 has been packed with dual cameras, though the mobile runs on Windows Phone 8.1.

In fact, Lumia phones don’t even come with flash. But here, users will get the flash feature along with the camera. In a well lighted hall, the snaps taken look great as well as decent. So, the picture quality is quite good in case of good lighting condition. In fact, color reproduction was also found to be good. But some of the pictures were found to be grainy. However, a final verdict about the picture quality can be given only when the concerned smartphone is available in the market.

Connectivity

A wide array of internet connectivity options are available in Win W121 such as 3G HSPA at a frequency band of 2100MHz, Wi-Fi, 2G EDGE at a frequency band of 1800MHz, and 1G GPRS at a frequency band 850MHz. Dual GSM network support is available with dual standby facility. Micro USB 2.0 is also available for users to get connected with external internet sources.

Memory

The storage capacity of this device is quite impressive, for Canvas Win W121 comes with an internal storage of 8GB, which is quite significant in a budget phone like this. This storage capacity can be expanded with the help of an external expandable memory by up to 32GB through the use of a microSD card slot. Moreover, RAM available is of 1GB, which enables all apps that are available on Windows Phone Store to run smoothly.  In fact, good storage capacity with strong RAM power has helped the phone to handle apps properly and seamlessly. While you are launching an application or switching between apps, you can perform everything smoothly. Navigating through the App list or Start Screen is lag free, which is ensured by the presence of 1GB of RAM.

When it comes to the internal storage capacity of 8GB, you will find that 4.29GB of ROM has been utilized to accommodate the list of apps and Windows 8.1 OS. So, users are left with just half of the storage for their personal data storage. This is definitely a downside to the device. Micromax could have expanded the internal storage capacity when it already knew that 4.29GB will be eaten up by OS and the inbuilt apps.However, when we look at the price, we feel sympathetic to the company as 8GB in itself is a large storage space in a sub-Rs.10K device.

Other Features

One of the best parts of Micromax Canvas Win W121 is the access to various applications along with the facility to use them seamlessly. Users can also access Windows Phone Store for downloading many applications. To browse the net, users can have Internet Explorer for smooth browsing. Some of the most important apps that you can use here include Twitter, Flipboard, Instagram, and Facebook. However, if you expect its smoothness of use with a high-end phone, then you are wrong and may get disheartened. For a below Rs. 10,000 smartphone, the current performance is more than what is expected.

Moreover, Android lovers may experience different environment while using this Windows powered device including the smoothness aspect. Here, all the functionalities cannot be found as you would find in an Android device. For example, the News Feed stories are loaded slowly by the app here at W121. A wide range of gaming apps are also available in this Windows powered mobile handset and they are Candy Crush Saga, Dots, Quiz Up, and many more. Some of the Xbox games that users can use include CricInfo, Football, ESPN games apps, and others. Some of the important apps that you may find fascinating include Bing Finance, Lync 2013, Microsoft Remote Desktop app, OneDrive, and many fitness apps.

Battery

The battery has an excellent capacity of 2000mAh. However, officially, it has not been confirmed as to how long Micromax Canvas Win W121 will work with every battery charging.

Connectivity

A wide array of connectivity options (both data and internet) is available with Micromax Canvas Win W121. The first thing to note is the fact that this handset comes with dual network support with dual standby facility. Regarding internet connectivity, users will get Wi-Fi, 3G HSPA at a frequency band of 2100MHz, 2G EDGE at a frequency band of 1800MHz, and 1G GPRS at a frequency band of 850MHz. Other data connectivity options available in this smartphone are micro USB 2.0, AGPS, and Bluetooth 4.0.

Other Features

Micromax’s Canvas Win W121 is now officially launched. However, it will be available in the market from July 2014. This mobile comes with great features and that too, at a sub-Rs. 10,000 price. It runs on Windows Phone 8.1, the only phone other than Lumia 630 that comes with this operating system. So, let us compare this Micromax handset with that of the already popular Lumia 630. Canvas Win W121 comes with a bigger screen size (5 inches over 4.5 inches), greater resolution (1280 x 720 pixels HD over WVGA pixel resolution), and higher pixel density (294ppi over 207ppi). When it comes to the color section of the display, both are good but that of Micromax is better. While you will find Corning Gorilla Glass protection in the Nokia device, you will miss it on W121.

The Nokia device comes with a quad-core processor (Snapdragon 400 chipset) clocked at a speed of 1.2GHz, 512MB RAM support, and Adreno 305 GPU. In case of the Micromax device, the specifications include quad-core processor (Snapdragon 200 chipset) clocked at a speed of 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, and Adreno 305 GPU. Lumia 630 comes with a 5 megapixels rear primary camera, video recording facility at 720p HD, and 1/ 4-inch sensor but no secondary camera. However, this new Canvas handset comes with an 8 megapixels primary camera and a 2 megapixels secondary camera. Both smartphones come with 8GB of internal storage capacity. However, they vary when it comes to the external expandable storage space support. While Win W121 supports up to 32GB, that in Lumia 630 is up to a massive 128GB.

Nokia’s handset comes with 1830mAh of battery capacity but this Micromax device come at a slightly better battery capacity of 2000mAh. Both the handsets are similarly priced but the Nokia product costs around Rs.1000 more than that of Micromax Canvas Win W121.
