Micromax Canvas Knight is the latest addition by the company to its very own Canvas family, and is marketed as the next flagship device, but does it really meets the expectations?? Well lets find it out below…
The phone is definitely a step ahead as compared to its predecessors, and promises a premium quality design. The phone looks good on design and Micromax has worked hard to avoid the plastic feeling, which most of the phones in the market fail to do.
As said earlier, the phone undoubtedly, looks great and even feels good in the hands. The phone has toughened glass on back and front panel, which makes it stand out the crowd. Though the glass can take some collisions with ground, its recommended to use a body cover and Micromax even packs one in the box. Another design aspect of the phone is the sides and buttons are brushed finely with excellent quality aluminum coating, making it more adorable and giving the premium feel. The buttons are robust and comfortable to use. One of the drawback of Micromax is the company’s reluctance to design something of its own, which it can boost off. Although the phone has a premium design, the design is not unique and we have already seen such designs from other manufacturers.
Micromax packs charger, data cable, headphones and extra ear plugs with the phone. The quality of the goodies packed with the phone is better as compared to earlier accessories that the company supplied. However the headphones could have been better in terms of audio quality.
Micromax Canvas Knight A350, comes with 16MP rare shooter accompanied by 8MP shooter for selfies. Both the shooters (front and rare) are capable of 1920 x 1080p videos. The specifications of the camera are great, and comparable with Samsung’s latest flagship mobile, Galaxy S5. Though the phone packs some outstanding camera specifications, the camera fails to deliver good quality snaps.The images are washed out and not detailed. On the contrary, the videos captured by the phone are better in terms of quality and the phone has excellent noise cancellation feature.
Display of Canvas Knight A350 is good, the black color is also pretty deep. The phone can stream videos upto 4K resolution, without much efforts. Phone can run the HD videos seamlessly, with no efforts. Watching videos on the phone is joy, especially when accompanied by headphones, thanks to the speakers, which fail to deliver the punch and output very low sound levels. The screen is acceptable in the outdoors.
The hardware it the best it can pack in its class, and has all it needs to be the next flagship phone from the company. The software is something which Micromax seems to have neglected. Great hardware requires a good software optimization to give extra ordinary results. Many time Apps stop working, in the middle of something and some of the heavy apps say good bye before even starting.
The hardware is exceptional, and most of the games requirements are satisfied by the phone. Small to average graphic run smoothly, without any lag. Even high end graphic games run smoothly with no lag.
Micromax has packed 2350mAh battery for the phone, and the performance is also quite good. The phone supports two SIM cards, with 3G support for both the SIMs and 3G data on one of the SIM. Both of the SIM cards work simultaneously. This is the main cause of draining the battery quickly. However, the battery performance is good. Both SIM cards on 3G and few hours of talking, some time browsing the net and listening to music, the battery of the phone last for about a day.
Unlike Samsung’s TouchWIiz or Sony’s Xperia of HTC’s Sense, Micromax lacks its own UI. Micromax heavily relies on stock android with minor tweaks. The UI on Canvas Knight is also stock android (very much). There are minor tweaks, for the dialer pad, some changes in the app drawer, accompanied with other minor customizations. The UI overall is not in accordance with the build quality and the design of the phone. Micromax seriously needs to work on the UI to increase its market share. The phone runs on Android 4.2.2 with a promise of upgrade to the latest android version.
Micromax Canvas Knight is the latest addition by the company to its very own Canvas family, and is marketed as the next flagship device, but does it really meets the expectations?? the answer is yes (partially). The phone is great, when it comes to hardware but Micromax still needs to work on the software part.Micromax Canvas Knight Review : Great on paperhttp://www.gadgetcluster.com/2014/04/micromax-canvas-knight-review-great-on-paper/http://i1.wp.com/www.gadgetcluster.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/micromax-canvas-knight-635.jpg?fit=635%2C460http://i1.wp.com/www.gadgetcluster.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/micromax-canvas-knight-635.jpg?resize=150%2C150 MOBILEmicromax,Review
