Micromax has announced this phone after a silence of few months. This mobile has good specifications for its price. It will be a good move for the company to launch this phone with two rear and one front camera each of 13MP (one of them is monochrome) when the oppo has launched its new mobile Oppo F3 plus for selfie lovers. The phone is expected to have many features like splendid cameras, security, big RAM, large storage space etc.

In contrast to the earlier designs, the new Canvas Dual 5 look greatly urban, matured and stylish. The phone distinctly gives an appearance of the iPhone and features a metal frame which seamlessly rounds up at the corners. The back panel gives a very convincing feel of holding a premium handset. The back panel is made of pretty light to carry. The phone weighs and dimension are still not confirmed. The power button and the volume rocker expected to feature on the right side, while the 3.5mm audio port located at the top. The micro-USB port expected to given at the bottom. The device houses a 5.5 inches display unit with a resolution of 1920 x 1080p. Colors are vivid, and the text appears crisp and sharp. The full HD display comes up to a pixel density of 401 parts per inch, making multimedia, icons, and any other information a pleasure to view. It also implies that the smartphone can be seen comfortably from different viewing angles. The screen is also sufficiently bright and hence poses no issues when viewed in sunlight. Moreover, the Gorilla Glass 3 is another added protection to the screen. Nevertheless, we recommend applying tempered glass to the screen for added protection.
The Canvas 5 runs on Android v6.0 Marshmallow OS. The Pre-loaded apps strewn across the home screen, and as the phone does not have any issues while switching from one screen to the other, or even when opening or closing an app. The Canvas 5 has the capability to let you sail through the usual daily tasks that you requires for your phone. Emailing, calling, web surfing and other simple tasks are a breeze, thanks to the device’s Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 CPU. It has come up with octa-core processor.

At par with market standards, the phone comes with dual 13MP primary camera and a 13MP front camera. While the rear camera unit works excellently and capturing lovely images in both bright light and low light conditions. The camera had issues focusing on the object, and this also attributed to the fact that the smartphone (like a few other budget devices), employed automatic focus. The low light conditions caused the shutter to take considerable time, even with the delay shutter settings turned to zero. Nevertheless, the camera features various picture modes, and a professional mode to tweak the settings further if desired. The HD video taken from the phone was reproduced brilliantly in the device and also worked well when viewed on a computer.
The speakers provided in the smartphone work great. However, the sound may become thin at times. The phone will packed with sensors, such as fingerprint, accelerometer, proximity and compass, ambient light sensor etc. The messaging sector of the phone has been put into the SMS (threaded view), MMS, Email, Push Mail and IM.
