Micromax is often refered to as the king of Indian budget segment smartphone scenario owing to its impressive lineup of budget handsets. The device maker is primarily known for its Canvase series of handsets that boasts of a massive fan following in India. And it also helps that the brand keeps on adding more and more handsets to its repertoire. Recently, the handset maker added a new device called Micromax Canvas Juice 4G to its lineup. This entry-level handset comes with good specifications and offer great value for money to its users.
Coming to the design, Micromax Canvas 4G flaunts a matte finish polycarbonate design in a bar form factor. The rest of its design is pretty simple with buttons in standard position and removable back panel.
Micromax has equipped the new handset with a 5-inch display that makes for a comfortable size for watching multimedia. The device offers a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels so that its users can enjoy HD content on the go with ease.
Micromax has pre-installed Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system in this handset that enhances the overall experience by itself. Moreover, Micromax is also known for its FirsTouch launcher that brings support for regional languages, transliteration and other enhancements.
Performance and Battery Life
The new handset features a good Quad-core processor that offers a decent clock speed of 1 GHz, which is more than enough for most average users. The user can also be assured that the device may never hang owing to the 2 GB of RAM assisting its processor. There is a 4000 mAh battery pack under the rear panel of this device.
Micromax has placed a powerful 8 mp camera on the rear panel of this handset for its photography loving users. The handset also offers a 5 Megapixels selfie snapper to its users.
This dual-SIM handset features support for both 4G LTE and 3G, which is a big deal for many users since 4G is now spreading in the country. It also offers connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, microUSB and GPS.
One of the disadvantages of having a huge lineup is that new launches with similar specifications do not bring anything new to the table and only expands the collection. Micromax Canvas Juice 4G is one such device that only brings support for 4G LTE in an already existing handset. This makes the handset one of the budget selfie and 4G LTE device.
