Micromax Canvas 2 (2017) comes with a decent set of specifications. The 2.5D curved glass display with Gorilla Glass 5, Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and the Airtel free calling & data offer makes it a good deal. But when we consider the price, we find that the device is overpriced. There are other devices such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Honor 6X, etc are priced similarly and come with better hardware.
