|Amazon||Micromax Canvas Nitro A311 (Blue, 16GB)||Rs. 10,340|
Micromax has been ruling the Indian mass smartphone market lately mainly owing to its attractive and value for money handsets. The brand is known to be the first to come up with innovative features in budget segment smartphones. This is one of the main reasons why handset maker has been hugely successful in India. The Canvas Nitro A311 smartphone is the brand's attempt to offer the cheapest Octa-core smartphone to Indian buyers.
The design of Micromax Canvas Nitro A311 happens to be quite attractive and is sure to win over Indian masses with its good look. Micromax has equipped the handset with a glittery leather like rear panel with faux stitching along the edges.
Micromax Canvas Nitro A311 with a decent sized 5-inch display that is good for all intent and purpose. Moreover, the display of the handset boasts of an HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, which is par excellence at this price point.
The handset comes with a dated Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system out of the box, which might discourage some buyers. However, one should not forget that Kitkat update was optimised to work smoothly with low configuration specifications. Combine it with decent specifications and you get a user experience that flies.
Performance and Battery Life
The performance of the handset happens to be the highlight of the device at this price as it comes with an Octa-core processor that has been clocked at 1.7 GHz. There is 2 GB of RAM in this handset that maintains the consistency of the performance offered by the handset. Moreover, the device comes backed with a 2500 mAh battery for a decent backup.
This handset is also one of the best in the market when it comes to imaging owing to its decent set of primary and secondary snappers. Micromax has equipped the device with a 5MP front camera that is good for selfies.
Micromax has churned out a powerful smartphone named Canvas Nitro A311 and what makes it different from others is that it is immensely powerful and costs as much as a mid-range smartphone. It has also joined the selfie smartphone brigade with that 5-megapixel front camera and the 13-megapixel rear unit is already powerful enough. The Moto G ships in with Android 4.4.4 KitKat and Micromax should have already rolled out the update to the Canvas Nitro A311. There is hardly any ground the Micromax Canvas Nitro A311 gives up to Moto G. We just wish smartphones like Canvas Nitro A311 make the mid-range segment become a hotly-contested market space.
