Micromax Canvas Nitro Review: Full Review

Who'd have forecast that Micromax would need to play catch up in the purchase price group it ruled only annually past? With the entry of capable and strong apparatus from international manufacturing companies which cost significantly less than Rs. Micromax 15,000, has had to somewhat reconsider its strategy. The recently established Canvas Nitro characteristics striking specifications as well as a price tag that will have been a great Rs. 5,000 higher before this budget warfare occurred.
We reviewed the Micromax Canvas Nitro to discover if it can hold its own against heavyweight brands including Motorola, Asus, Xiaomi as well as the surprise star.

Look and feel

On holding the Micromax Canvas Nitro, with its weight of 146g our immediate reaction, was that it felt heavier in relation to the alternatives in this budget. The back of the Micromax Canvas Nitro seems rather like that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with its faux stitched-leather finish. The front is largely uninspiring with the 5-inch display taking up most of the real estate. Actually , the phone on the whole seems somewhat tepid and does nothing to catch focus.
This telephone is, in addition, accessible dark blue although we got the white variant for review. The power button sits in the correct border while the left border houses the volume rock. Both physical buttons have almost no journey. A 3.5mm audio jack can be located on the top of the telephone, and the Micro-USB port for data transfer and charging is on the underside. Over the display are the telling LED, a front-facing camera and an earpiece. Micromax has made a decision to go with backlit buttons that were capacitive, but they aren't illuminated equally. The back cover might be taken away readily and under it one can locate a slot for a microSD card, two slots for Micro SIM cards, as well as the battery.

Specifications and software

Micromax has fitted the Canvas Nitro with all the octa-core Mediatek MT6592 central processing unit that's clocked at 1.7GHz and has an incorporated Mali-450 GPU. The Canvas Nitro additionally features 2GB of RAM. Out of the 8GB of internal storage space, just 5.68GB is accessible for users but you can enlarge this by up to 32GB using a microSD card.
Two Micro SIM cards are accepted by the telephone and users connect to the 850/ 900/ 1800/ 1900/ 2100 network bands. In addition, it can connect to other Bluetooth and WiFi networks -enabled devices. A 2500mAh battery supplies the juice for the apparatus. The 5-inch 720p screen is very good for the large part with good viewing angles and vivid colours, when seen under direct sun, but things go down. The display is quite reflective and we had a difficult time attempting to use this telephone due to this.
Micromax has tweaked the software to add several added attributes that have been largely borrowed from HTC's Sense UI and Samsung's Touchwiz. Micromax for starters, adds a QuickLook page to the left of the primary homescreen. QuickLook is nothing but Micromax's effort to emulate the BlinkFeed of HTC. The settings where a person can select which subjects the web feed screens are shown by yet another swipe from the QuickLook page. You may also add Twitter and Facebook reports in order they can represent in the feed. Nevertheless, there's no method to add feeds from special sites. Also, there's a strange blue tint to the backdrop of text when any post is opened, which makes it somewhat hard to read.
The lockscreen has a straightforward swipe-up gesture, and notifications that are accessible are shown on a reddish band. A number of the other applications tweaks include the capacity to stop video playback when the user looks away, which is an immediate raise of Samsung's 'Smart Pause' attribute. It works the majority of the time, if ambient lighting is great enough. There are a number of tweaks to the camera software.
There are a ton of third party programs and they're mainly bloatware - programs that are simply useless. The Clean Master program has a widget to the house display and it's very intrusive unless its settings change. In addition, there are programs like M! Games and M! Live which only jump to Web pages. What is worse is that none of these programs can not be install. Swiftkey is the computer keyboard by default option that's very good. Micromax also bundles the Truecaller program that is somewhat annoying. There are a lot of games, all which are trial versions.


The 13-megapixel camera on the Micromax Canvas Nitro is an ideal example of the megapixel count does not matter. Detector and the lens of the cellphone certainly do not do it any justice. As a result when seen at real size, it's quite clear that got pictures lack a great deal of details. You can observe a blue tint to pictures, if seen carefully. In low light, the camera did not get any detail. The sole upside is the fact that the camera can focus and shoot pictures extremely quickly.
Recorded video is recorded in .3gpp format for some reason as well as the quality is very poor. The camera could not remain focused on any subject, and video was only quite dim. Astonishingly, the set- focus -megapixel front camera can get pictures that are adequate but it is as bad as the one on the Sony Xperia C3 Dual. Micromax has added one of the house displays, which right lets a user get a number of the camera's many modes and a camera widget. The selfie mode is self explanatory. Frontback way reveals them in schisms creen and takes pictures with both cameras. We believe that Micromax could have stuck to the tried and don't know the novelty of the mode -and-examined picture in picture format used by other smartphone businesses. That is a Secure way in which a reading like a heart rate monitor goes in addition to the display when the apparatus is secure enough for shooting to reveal you. The camera program by itself supplies plenty of great choices like saying the word 'cheese' to get an image (which did not work most of the time). Additionally, there are a couple of manual controls too. But concealing frequently-used modes like HDR in the settings menu is quite annoying.


We did not confront any hiccups while using the Micromax Canvas Nitro every day. It functions fairly nicely and has simple transitions. It's an excellent smartphone encounter. We even attempted high end games like Dead Trigger 2 and Asphalt 8, and we did not confront any slowdown whatsoever.
The standard amounts are second only to the somewhat more pricey Xiaomi Mi 3 in this budget. In AnTuTu and Quadrant standards the cellphone was able to score 28,302 and 13,444 respectively, which are more than good amounts. The phone also hit 13.4fps and scored 6,453 in our GFXbench and 3D Mark Ice Storm images evaluations. The Canvas Nitro played all the greatly encoded videos we threw at it with no hassles. The loudspeaker is overly soft and also it distorts at high volumes. The function will be served by the bundled earphones for most of us, which is a great thing. The call quality is very nice as well as the sound on both ends of the call was crystal clear.
We were totally floored in the Canvas Nitro's battery operation. It managed to play with video in a loop for 9 minutes and 16 hours before it expired on us. This really is special battery life and this one operation stat is sufficient to sway plenty of buyers in the phone's favour.


The Micromax Canvas Nitro does lots of things one would anticipate from a smartphone and does the nicely for the large part (other than for the camera). It's priced at Rs. 12,900, which is an excellent deal. Sadly for Micromax, the marketplace is full of a slew of choices in this variety as well as the updated Moto G is tremendous rivalry for the cellphone. The influence that Canvas Nitro has over most of the other mobiles such as the Asus Zenphone 5, Xiaomi Mi 3 (out of stock for now) and the Moto G (Gen 2) is it will soon be obtainable in retail stations as well apart from any one online store. We'd advise this phone to anybody who wants special battery life, provided that they are willing to take the bad camera as a tradeoff.
