Micromax has been launching a lot of devices off-late, and Canvas Infinity promises to strengthen their hold in the 10k segment. Micromax Canvas Infinity has been marketed as the cheapest device with an 18:9 screen. Of course, this won’t be an easy journey for this device, given that the segment is saturated with ample choices, right from Redmi 4 to Nokia 5. No, it’s nowhere close to LG Q6, but it does compete with some of the devices under 15k. Here’s a quick take on the specifications and other aspects.
Micromax Canvas Infinity runs on the 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, which isn’t a bad choice for the price. However, early reviews did claim that the device had a few performance issues, even with 3GB RAM on board. It also has 32 GB of internal storage, expandable up to 128 GB. On the rear, it comes with a 13 MP shooter, while a 16-MP camera adorns the front panel, which ensures great selfies. Of course, the star of the phone is the display. The 18:9 display is quite commendable, and despite being a phone with a 5.7-inch screen, it doesn’t feel heavy. All the sensors, including Proximity sensor, Accelerometer are in place.
Micromax Canvas Infinity is great for the price, especially if you fall for the screen. The brand has also promoted the cameras of the device, which work well in good lighting conditions. As far as performance is concerned, this might not be the best device in its range, but it doesn’t feel too sluggish. More than anything else, it has the 18:9 display, which makes it the best for that feature alone.
On the flip side
While Micromax Canvas Infinity boasts of a great display, it doesn’t really work as expected. Devices such as Moto G5 or Redmi Note 4 packs much better hardware for the same price, which is kind of a bummer for Micromax.
On the whole, Micromax Canvas Infinity isn’t a bad deal if you can go past the performance glitches. Most of the reviews have been positive so far, and the phone doesn’t feel like a cheap one, even if you consider the display and performance issues. Some of the online stores have a discount on the product, so you can expect to save a tad more on the retail price. If you can save a tad more, you can pick up something better too.
