Well the expectations were high, we were expecting 1.5 GH1 quadcore processor, IPS 1080 HD screen and the list goes on. But the truth is that they only add some exterior updates to their previous model canvas HD and  the hardware it’s almost  the same.

Of course they did some customizations on the firmware, have a corning scratch resistant screen with increased ppi.
Then some usual gimmicks from micromax like

  • When you blow to the screen the mobile will be unlocked itself. Cool, Isn’t it?
  • The pin video feature allows you to pin videos in any window.
  • Automatic video pausing technology when we don’t look in to the screen it pauses.

and a bunch of other premier features that can only be found on the premier smart phones like Note 2 and Galaxy S4, now that’s cool. Micromax won in bringing the tag “‎#premium” to their flagship device.



The smart phone will be powered by same 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 SoC which powers the canvas hd 116. It also features 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot.
The camera department really deserves a hattsoff. Micromax Canvas 4 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera (thumps up).They customized the camera department with a bunch of cool features like low light exposure, effects gallery,99 pics in one single click (y) etc.. In addition, the phone will come with 2,000 mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.


The main point is the micromax devices will always have a siblings in china and it’s not exceptional in the case of canvas 4. The all new canvas 4 looks exactly same as BLU life one.I mean this is the same mobile, the logo is the only change here.. Micromax you are one of the trusted brand in India people are buying mmx devices just like Samsung and Nokia and now it’s time to grow up.. Next time for the god sake come up with a new your own design.

Spot the indifference between both mobiles… 😛
