Micromax used to be undisputed king in the Indian budget scene until Chinese brands like Xiaomi and LeEco came stomping. However, the brand still has some impressive budget handsets in its lineup and is considered to be one of the top players. It has been launching some impressive devices under its Canvas series and have been immensely popular with Indian buyers. The brand has recently launched a new handset called Canvas Spark. With this handset, the brand intends to cater to 4G LTE users, whodo not want to spend much on the smartphone. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are looking for this handset.
VoLTE: This handset has been launched to cater to people who are 4G subscribers and looking at VoLTE post the launch of Reliance Jio. The highlight of the handset indeed is the support for VoLTE right out of the box. This is a luxury given the price tag that this handset comes with.
Corning Gorilla Glass: Not only does this device comes with a decent 5-inch display in entry level but is also well protected. Micromax has launched this handset with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass protecting the display. It also makes it scratch and shatter resistant.
Android Marshmallow: Not many smartphones at this price come with the latest Android out of the box in entry-level. Micromax Canvas Spark 4G comes with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system pre-installed in it.
Poor battery: If you are using a 4G handset with VoLTE and also have device with lower specifications, you have to make sure that it atleast has good battery under the rear panel. However, Micromax Canvas Spark 4G comes with a puny 2000 mAh battery that might need charging before the day ends.
Low storage space: Another issue faced by the user will be the stringent storage space on the device. This handset comes with just 8 GB of internal storage, which is not enough even for an average user.
