A few years ago, Micromax introduced it’s first Canvas and it was a high end phone from the Indian based tech giant which came with a low price. Today, the Indian based tech giant has entered into the Top 10 smartphone brands and they are working hard and for that, they have launched the Micromax Canvas Sliver 5. Well, it is not launched as Micromax Canvas 5, and the company has named it differently. Hugh Jackman is going to promote this smartphone, and the company is also investing a lot of money for it’s online advertisement.
The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Hands On is done here and the device is priced at Rs. 17,999 which is a high end price for a Micromax Smartphone, but it comes with some decent specs and they are quite proud about it. In this market, we can find a lot of smartphones against this device. HTC Desire 616G+ is there, Samsung Galaxy E5 and there are some other smartphones as well. So, will it survive, let’s find out in our Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Hands On Impressions.
The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 comes with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD multi-touch capacitive touchscreen display which offers a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is also supporting a pixel density of 306ppi. The screen looked very nice, and the brightness level is quite good too. Well, at this price point we have expected the handset to come with a Full HD display, rather than a HD display. The device comes with a a very good design, but the key feature of this handset is it’s slimness. It is 5.10mm thin and is world’s slimmest device(end to end)
There are three buttons which are included inside the screen. The device comes with Micromax On Site Service, which helps you a lot. The Canvas Knight 2 is also supporting this feature. It allows the user to get their handset collected/dropped back, from/ to door step. So, it is going to help the Micromax users a lot and we can see this service available for the upcoming phones as well.
The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Hands On video is also posted below. The device is running on Android Lollipop platform, which is quite good and a few weeks ago, Google M was announced and we hope that this smartphone will receive that update soon. The wallpaper was quite good too. The device is supporting Material Design, Security segments and some other Android L features too. The Kernel version is also quite good, which means that it is going to be good for all the developers too.
The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 comes with an 8-Megapixel camera and it is using the Sony IMX219 sensor. Also, it is using the CMOS sensor which is quite good, and we have already tested this camera and you can find out the complete camera test in the Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Hands On Video below.
The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 is now supporting a new camera settings menu and it looks quite nice. The device comes with a matte finish and it is totally awesome. The gold colored back panel looks quite nice and it is made up of aluminium, and thus, it is going to provide a lot of lust and brightness.
The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 410 Quad-Core processor, which is again a disappointing factor about this smartphone as we have expected the handset to come with an Octa-Core processor. It is also supporting 2GB of RAM. The internal storage of Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 is 16GB and you can not expand the external storage of this device, which is again a con. The battery life of this device is also good.
The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 comes with a 5-Megapixel front-facing camera which is also good, and you can find all the details about this camera in the Micomax Canvas Sliver 5 Hands On video below. It is also supporting DiRAC HD Sound and NXP Power Amplifier. The device seems good, it is 5.1mm thin and it is the thinnest device end to end. Vivo has launched a phone with 4.75mm thickness, but that is having a bump which is excluded in this smartphone.
The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 is a good device, and we will soon get the review loaner and will then tell ylu about this handset. So, till then that is all for now. Do stay tuned while we bring more tech updates for you. Check out the Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Hands On Image Gallery and Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Hands On Video below.
