Micromax has recently launched several smartphones in its Canvas Fun series like Micromax Canvas Fun A76, Micromax Canvas Fun A74, etc and positioned lowly on this ladder is Micromax Canvas Fun A63. A budget android phone whose leaks were covered by most bloggers on the Internet. Let’s see if it’s worth the Hype.
Camera and Internal Storage
The primary camera has a 2 MP sensor with 1600 x 1200 pixels, which is below average. Phones like Spice stellar Glamour Mi 436 will provide you with better 5 MP camera. There is no camera on the front panel. The front camera is rarely used but will be missed by those who want video calling as an option.
The internal storage is 4 GB of which 1 GB will be available at the users end. This is again pretty less and if you are an aggressive App downloader, then this phone is not for you. The Internal storage can be extended to 32 GB using MicroSD card support.
Processor and Battery
This phone is powered by 1.3 GHz dual core MediaTek MT6572 processor which is the most you can expect at this price range. This processor is backed by 512 MB RAM which should be sufficient for UI transitions with Moderate usage. You will most probably experience lag with high usage.
The battery capacity is 1500 mAh similar to other phones in the Canvas Fun Series. This will give you a humble 4.5 hours of talk time and 135 hours of standby time. The battery is a big limiting factor in today’s smartphones and this factor is even more prominent when it comes to budget devices.
Display and Features
The display of this smartphone is 4 Inch in size and the Display resolution is WVGA 480 X 800 pixels. This amounts to 233 pixels per inches which is fine clarity display. Canvas Fun A74 will give you bigger 4.5 Inch display and Canvas Fun A76 is again one step ahead with 5 Inch display. You won’t be using this phone to play graphic intensive games and thus this display will suffice for most general purpose usage.
This phone comes with Android 4.2 jelly bean operating system and Dual SIM Dual Standby connectivity.
Looks and Connectivity.
Micromax Canvas Fun A63 is available in various colors like Mystic Blue, Crazy Yellow and Midnight Black which makes it less monotonus. Other than that the phone is mostly plastic in look and feel and the back panel sports a mostly rectangular camera sensor with flash.
Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi, EDGE, GPRS, FM, 3.5 mm Audio jack and Bluetooth
This phone will be rivaled by many budget quad core devices like Intex Cloud Y2,Gionee p2, Videocon A42, Micromax Canvas Fun A74 and Spice Stellar Glamour Mi 436. You can look at all the available options and decide from whatever OEM gives better after sales services in your area.
