Micromax Canvas Spark was launched in India a few days ago. This is an amazing smartphone and the price tag makes it more special. The year 2015 is not easy for consumers and smartphone manufactures. There are a lot of smartphones present under 10K INR. But, as a consumer you want the best product and being a smartphone manufacturer you want to gave the consumers the most and get in return the high sales. Well, Mr. Vineet, CEO of Micromax has done that with the launch of Micromax Canvas Spark. Micromax Canvas Spark is a very cheap phone and provides a lot of good features. These a days, companies are fighting really hard and impressively they are dropping down the price of new products.

Anyway, the Canvas Spark comes with a 4.7-inch qHD display which offers a screen resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display is there to protect the touchscreen. It is an IPS display and the pixel density of this device was quite good. The screen is quite bright and is going to attract a lot of consumers.
Micromax Canvas Spark Q380 is a solid device and we have also done the drop test of this handset and found no lag. The device is quite firm, but it is not going to break. The Canvas Q380 is also very thick, it is 8.5mm thick and weighs about 135g. It is bringing a nice grip and thus, it will not slip from your hands.
The Canvas Spark Q380 is having dual-SIM Support and both these SIMs support the3G bands of India. Well, apart from 4G, the deice also supports connectivity features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB port and a 3.5mm AV jack as well. The connectivity features were working fine.

It is an Auto-Focus camera with M8 Largan lens, OV Sensor 8858 and Flash. The camera on the back is quite good and we have tested it in low light quality and we are quite satisfied with camera. There are many modes present in this camera which will help you in taking better images.
On front, there is a 2-Megapixel Fixed Focus camera present which is capable of taking good selfies even in the low light. Above this image, you can see the front facing camera in working mode.

Micromax Canvas Spark Q380 is running on Android 5.0 Lollipop platform and it is the first Canvas smartphone to come with Android Lollipop. Also, under 5K price there is no Android L phone present and even at more price, Redmi 2 is not running Lollipop yet.Motorola Moto E 2nd Gen is the only phone out there running on the latest software, but that is priced above Rs. 5K.
The Canvas Spark is packing a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6582M quad-core processor along with 1GB of RAM. The internal storage of this handset is 8GB and the users can also expand the external storage via a microSD card. It is a DDR3 RAM which is present in this device and overall, it is quite good.
