Micromax Canvas 2 Colors is a premium looking phone. Giving tough competition to Nokia Lumia type devices. It comes in vibrant colors back panels which are awesome. The back panels also covers the volume rockers and power button of the device. So it looks you have owned 3 devices, if you change back panels every day. Built quality is awesome. Not looking cheap. As usual In the device on right had the power button and on the left their is volume rockers, on the top of the device there is USB slot and a 3.5mm audio jack. The overall device looks awesome and eye catchy. It gains full marks on the design department.

Viewing angles are also great. Sunlight visibility is nice and text looks clear and sharp on the display. Good works again by the Micromax on the display of this device. Again full marks on the display of the device.
Micromax Canvas 2 Colors runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with a guaranteed upgrade to latest Android 4.4 KitKat. The UI of the phone is good. Icon of the launchers are also good, seems to have iPhone icons. Let’s wait and see what will we have after getting KitKat update to the device.



Micromax Canvas 2 Colors support Full-HD video playback. You can play Full-HD videos with the stock video player without any lag. Sound quality is loud and clear. Good UI of music player and video player.
Micromax Canvas 2 Colors have an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. The front-facing camera is capable of taking 5 MP sized pictures. When we checking the quality of front facing camera then we saw that the size of the picture is of 5 MP, wells this is good. The quality of the picture is above average. The rear camera is powered by 8 MP sensor. The quality of pictures are awesome in daylight. The night and indoor pictures are little noisy. Overall the camera is the Average of the smartphone, not so impressed with it.
Many of the users are asking for the heating issue of the phone. Well, we did not find any heating issue with this phone. We used the phone all time with 3G ON and played asphalt 8 around 30-40 minutes but still, the battery temperature is 41 degree and did not find any serious heating problem with the device.
storage & Performance
Micromax Canvas 2 Colors is powered by 1.3 GHz MediaTek Quad-core processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM. Internal memory is 4 GB out of which 0.98 GB is allocated of apps and 1.6 GB for mass storage. RAM is very disappointing of the phone, getting very less usable RAM from the first day of the device, around 350 MB free when first boot. Hope the KitKat update will solve the problem. The performance of the phone is smooth and did not lag. We played Asphalt 8 with high graphics, it played smoothly without any lag. That is very good. Overall the experience of the phone is good. Both Sim cards support 3G. Wi-fi hotspot available. Also, USB OTG is supported. The battery is of 2000 mAh, feels insufficient for the device and drains quickly. Battery life is average of the phone.
With a price tag of Rs.9999, Micromax Canvas is worth buying. It is an awesome phone available in the market and giving tough competition to Motorola Moto G. Also it is upgradable to Android KitKat, which also makes it a great deal. Go for it.
