The king of budget segment in smartphone segment, Micromax is now on a mission to expand its lineup of 4G enabled lineup. After recently launching the Canvas Nitro 4G smartphone in India, the handset maker has launched yet another device in the market. This new handset is called Canvas Nitro Pace 4G and is expected to come with an attractive budget segment price tag. Here is a brief overview of the device for the benefit of our users.
The design of all new Micromax Canvas Pace 4G happens to be a quintessential Micromax with standard brand logo on the rear panel. It boasts of a bar form factor with rounded corners, which makes it easier to grip the device. The rear panel of the handset boasts of matte metallic finish which enhances the whole look of the device.
Micromax has equipped the handset with a decent sized 5-inch display that is an ideal screen size for all intent and purpose. However, for some reasons Micromax has decided to opt for a resolution of 480×854 pixels, which dulls the experience a bit.
The handset maker is high on user experience as it has launched the new handset with the last generation Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system out of the box. The user interface of the device is also close to stock with just visual tweakings.
Performance and Battery Life
The performance offered by the handset is pretty decent as it comes with a Quad-core processor that has been clocked to run at 1.1 GHz. This processor has also been coupled with 1 GB of RAM to further enhance the performance of the handset. The handset also comes powered with a 2500 mAh battery for a day long backup on moderate usage.
Micromax has equipped the new handset with a 5 MP primary camera on the rear panel that is good enough for daily usage. However, the front camera of the handset is a big letdown with just 2 Megapixels at its disposal.
This handset is a dual-SIM device that supports both 4G LTE and 3G bandwidth for superfast Internet browsing at leisure. Micromax Canvas Pace 4G also boasts of Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth, microUSB and GPS.
Micromax has done it yet again with Canvas Pace 4G and added another impressive value for money device with support for 4G LTE to its stables. Canvas Pace 4G is a good blend of performance and cost effectiveness, however, conquering the entry level budget segment remains a tall order.
