Micromax India has launched a new android smartphone in the canvas series named Canvas Knight A350. The phone has already been unveiled in the Russian market and as promised by the company, it comes up with a powerful octa core processor clocked at 2 GHz.
Apart from the powerful processor, the device sports 5 inch IPS panel display with 1920×1080 pixels resolution, 16 megapixel M8 margan camera lens, LED flash and a whooping 8 megapixel front facing camera. The device runs on the comparatively old iteration of the Android i.e., 4.2 Jelly bean. In addition to these conventional features, there’s a dedicated app for audio enhancements named Yamaha amplifier. The device comes up with the two colors i.e., black and white. There’s a brush metal finish along with a gold bezel at the edges and glass panel at the back. There’s this OmniVision CameraChip sensor that will help you in getting better quality pictures with the 16 megapixel rear camera.
Talking about the instant messaging apps, the phone comes pre-loaded with the BBM and Hike Messenger. The additional applications such as Spuul, Kingsoft Office, M Live Portal and TrueCaller etc comes very handy. You can also enjoy the games like Where’s my perry, Where’s my water and RealSteel WRB that comes pre-loaded with the phone.

Our take on the phone!
When it comes to the Micromax phones, I had few concerns regarding these key issues.
Earlier, the Micromax phones had limited storage for the apps. With the launch of Micromax Canvas Knight A350, this issue has been addressed perfectly as the device comes with a whooping 32 GB of internal storage.
The second issue that has been floating in my mind is about the quality of the pictures/images produced by the camera. Micromax phones were hardly camera-centric and therefore I didn’t find any phone with a quality camera. Well, with the introduction of a dedicated camera sensor along with 16 megapixel lens, I think it will produce better and perhaps the expected results.
The third problem is regarding the durability of these phones. I’ve been hearing a lot about these phones being usable/durable for one year. Well, I don’t know if this phone would be able to survive for more than a year but the build quality looks pretty stubborn.
Do you want me to compare this phone with the Motorola Moto G? Drop your comments below and let me know.
