Question – Does Canvas Spark has Corning Gorilla Glass Protection?

Answer –  Yes, Canvas Spark comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top and a scratch guard is present in the box too, so yes, you are pretty much covered.

Question – How is the Display of Micromax Canvas Spark?

Answer –  Canvas Spark has a 4.7 Inch IPS LCD display with qHD resolution. Brightness, viewing angles and sunlight visibility are all good for the price. Display colors appear saturated. Display softness is noticeable to our eyes, but there is no pixilation and first time users are less likely to notice it. Thanks to Gorilla Glass on top, it is resistant to scratches, but not so much to smudges. The touch responsiveness is average. On the whole, the display won’t be a problem for Micromax Canvas Spark, considering the price tag.

Question – How is the Design and Build Quality?

Answer –  Micromax has sincerely worked on the design part to make sure Canvas Spark doesn’t look like an ugly and cheap plastic slab, but has cut some corners in build quality to accommodate the low price tag. The Canvas Spark has a very thin rubberized matte finish plastic back cover which feels similar to moonstone finish on Yureka. The back curves around the edges and seamlessly merges into the metallic texture chrome lining.

Hardware keys give good feedback. The back cover is removable but the battery is sealed inside using a simple sticker. On the rear side, camera lens is slightly protruding outwards and this increases the changes of scratching the lens when the phone is resting on its back.

Question – Are the Capacitive navigation buttons backlit?

Answer – No, the capacitive buttons are not backlit.

Question – Is there any heating issue in Canvas Spark?

Answer – No, the handset does not heat much.

Question – What comes inside the Box?

Answer – 700 mA wall charger, Documentation, USB Cable, headphones and Scratch Guard

Question – What size SIM card is supported? How is the call quality?

Answer – Both SIM cards accept Micro SIM and only one SIM supports  3G. Cellular video calling or call recording  is not supported

Question – Does it have LED notification light?

Answer – Yes, LED notification light is there.

Question – How much is Free Storage?

Answer –  Out of 8 GB, around 4.5 GB is available at use end. There is option to check SD card as default storage, but apps cannot be moved or installed on SD card.

Question – Does it support USB OTG?

Answer – Yes, USB OTG is supported. After connecting a flash drive, the phone gives you the option to make external pen drive as default storage, which means you can directly capture image or record videos on the external flash drive.

Question – How is the Camera Quality?

Answer – Rear camera quality seems pretty decent in our initial testing. Camera vise, this is definitely one of the best option available for under 5,000 INR. You can record 720p HD videos at 30fps from the rear camera. The front camera quality is also pretty good and has a smile detection feature which fires camera when you smile (or rather show your teeth). Face beauty mode is also present which smoothens you skin texture and works well most of the times. The stock camera app isn’t very snappy and low light shots are noisier, but again, it’s a pretty good deal for the price.

Question – How much RAM is free on First Boot?

Answer –  Out of 1 GB, more than 500 MB RAM is available on first boot.

Question – How is the device software?

Answer – Software is Android 5.0 Lollipop. It is not pure Android Lollipop and is adulterated with some light UI customizations and several preloaded apps.

Answer – Yes, the handset can play Full HD 1080p and HD 720p videos.

Question – Can Canvas Spark 2 be connected to Bluetooth headsets

Answer – Yes, you can connect it to Bluetooth headset

Question – How is the battery backup?

Conclusion

Micromax Canvas Spark offers top notch specs and decent camera, but yes, Micromax has cut some corners here and there. Based on our initial testing, we do feel that it is a good device for under 5,000 INR, but if you are willing to spend more, you can get a better deal and experience with slightly higher priced devices.
