Micromax is known for the value for money devices it has in its lineup and the launch of Moto E has struck it slightly bad too. But the Moto E has not been able to come in stock pretty often and Micromax is working constantly on captalising on that. It has recently launched the Canvas Entice A105 for Rs 6,999 which is one of the guns in the armoury of Micromax to go up against the Moto E. Let us take a quick review of the device.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Canvas Entice A105 comes with a 5MP camera at the back with a LED flash and a VGA front camera. Micromax has covered the imaging department base pretty well of the smartphone and this is pretty much what you usually get in the budget segment.
The internal storage of the smartphone stands at 4GB which can be expanded by another 32GB with the help of a microSD card. This is not something out of the ordinary but it is not like that the competition does any better too. So we don’t have a complaint from the device in this regard.
Processor and Battery
The processor under the hood of the Canvas Entice A105 is a 1.2 GHz quad core Broadcom BCM23550 unit which gets coupled with a 512MB RAM. This performs fairly well but the RAM of the smartphone lets it down a bit. The GPU unit is a Videocore IV unit.
The battery unit under the hood of the Canvas Entice A105 is a 1,900 mAh unit. It offers talk time of up to 5 hours and a battery stand by time of up to 150 hours. Seeing the fact that it has a big screen and a decently capable processor, the battery would not last you more than a day.
Display and Features
The display unit of the Micromax Entice A105 is a 5 inch one which has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The big screen display unit will be good for viewing but pixelation is noticeable due to the resolution. You can’t get everything in the entry level smartphone market so you’ll have to compromise on something.
The Micromax Entice A105 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat which is the best feature about the device. Micromax has done well to bring KitKat on a budget so it’s really nice to have it on board.

What we don’t like
Micromax is doing pretty well to bring really good devices on a budget with the latest version of operating system. The Canvas Entice A105 is a good device for the price it asks for. It poses quite a good competition to others and the only thing which lets it down is the RAM and poor resolution. Just in case it had a qHD resolution and a 1GB RAM, it would have surely got the Moto E worried.
