Micromax has launched the fifth edition of its Canvas series of smarphones at an event happened in Delhi. The company has named the device as the Canvas Sliver 5, which essentially gets its name due to its supposedly 'slimmest and lightest' body, as per company claims. The company describes the phone as a perfect combination of a beautiful design and powerful specs, and says that this is what justifies its price of Rs 17,999.
The Canvas Sliver 5 is essentially all about its design, which actually is worth admirating. It is like a thin slab will metal finishing and glass panels, which looks premium and pretty attractive. In fact, if only the design is to considered, the Canvas Sliver 5 can easily give its premium competitors a run for their money. The back panel, however, is a finger print magnet. Weighing in at XX grams, the phone is undoubedly quite light on hand and is quite comfortable to use. Also, it is pretty thin at 5mm, though not the 'slimmest' as claimed by the company.
It sports a 4.8-inch HD display offering 720p resolution, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The display is crisp, clear and offers good visuals even at different viewing angles.
Speaking of camera, the phone brings an 8MP snapper on the back, and a 5MP selfie camera up front. As far as the camera quality is concerned, we can't really judge it until we review the phone.
Other features in the phone include of Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core chipset with 64-bit processing capabilities, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The phone runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop out of the box.
For those who want to buy a dual-SIM phone with expandable memory (via micriSD card) option, this is certainly not meant for you.
To conclude, we would say that the phone undoubtedly scores very well in the design department, but does not really impresses when it come to specifications and features for its price of Rs 17,999. So it is good for those who like their phones to be stylish, and don't mind a slight compromise on the specs front.
