Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 Unboxing, Review, India Price, Features, Camera and Overview [Video]
Question – Does Canvas Doodle 4 have Corning Gorilla Glass Protection?
Answer – Yes, Micromax has provided with Gorilla Glass 3 layer on top
Question – How is the Display on Canvas Doodle 4
Answer – The display is huge, as you already know. The display quality is however mediocre at best. The device has 960 x 540 pixel quarter HD display resolution, and on the large sized display, this results in soft texts, soft images and large fonts and icons. First time users wont notice pixilation, but display isn’t very crisp. If you are considering Doodle 4, it must be because you want a 6 Inch IPS LCD panel, and though it is not the best IPS LCD display in this price range, it is very usable.
Question – How is the Design and Build Quality?
Answer – The design is similar to Micromax Canvas Spark, but Doodle 4 is more polished. On the rear side the matte finish back cover gently curves towards the edges and the chrome finished edges, where hard buttons are placed are very slim. On the front side there are lollipop style capacitive keys underlining the display. A black strip is running around the display on all sides, which makes it look like an edge to edge display when the screen is turned off. The handset is very slim considering the large form factor and is easier to manage, as compared to what we had expected. You can remove the back cover, but battery is sealed inside.
Question – Are Capacitive buttons backlit?
Answer – No, the silver capacitive navigation buttons below the display are not backlit.
Question – Is there any heating issue in Micromax Canvas Doodle 4?

Question – How much is free RAM on first boot?

Question – How is the Camera Quality?
Answer – The rear 8 MP Camera nicely reproduces colors and details. The shutter isn’t very fast, but you can still manage to click some good shots if lighting is good. The front 2 MP camera is an average performer too.
Question – How is the performance ? How much did it score on Antutu and Nenamarks?
Answer – Antutu score on our review unit is 19888 and 55.7 fps on Nenamarks 2. The chipset has present in most 2014 smartphones and we have experienced it in several devices as of now. Performance in long run wont be a problem for basic and moderate users. If you like to experiment with several apps or engage in intensive tasks, Doodle 4 is not for you.
Question – How is the device software?
Answer – Software is Android 5.0 Lollipop based almost stock ROM. There are several preloaded apps, some of which can be uninstalled and others can be disabled.

Question – How loud is Loudspeaker?
Answer – Loudspeaker is quite loud, which is a good thing as Doodle 4 is primarily a media consumption device. The speaker grill is present on the rear surface, which means sound can get blocked when the phone is resting on its back.
Question – Can Doodle 4 Play Full HD 1080p Videos?
Answer – Yes, the handset can play Full HD 1080p and HD 720p videos.
Question – How is the battery backup?
Answer – With adaptive brightness toggled on, the battery backup is quite decent in spite of the large display size. With Basic and moderate usage, you can comfortably hit one day mark on a single charge.
