One thing is clear that the manufacturer has understood the value of looks of their devices; the price sensitive Indian market has been praising the efforts Micromax has put through. The biggest takeaway of this phone is its sleek and premium looks, and the amazing display. Micromax has certainly upped its game by serving premium features and looks like FullHD screen and 3GB RAM in this budget phone.

The Canvas 5 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and Mali-T720 MP2 GPU for seamless graphic performance. The internal storage is 16 GB, which can be further expanded to 64 GB via microSD card. The Canvas is backed by a non-removable 2900 mAh battery, which is claimed to deliver up to 10 hours of talk-time.

The Canvas 5 supports dual-SIM and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop. One of the major highlight of this device is the 5.2 inch FHD IPS display with 2.5D Curved Touch Panel and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The rear shutter is 13 MP Autofocus and the front camera is 5 MP fixed focus, both have LED flash coupled with them.

If we relate the Canvas 5 with its predecessor then it surely has a better processor, more RAM, juicier battery and a much better display. It will compete with phones like Lenovo K3 Note, Meizu M2 Note, Xolo Black 1X and few more.
