The recently announced Micromax Canvas Nitro A310 is now listed on Infibeam (a shopping portal) at just Rs 12,749 thus making its debut among most diluted price section. It runs on all new Android KitKat OS and features the 5MP camera on the front, making it count among the selfie centered smartphones. One of the main competitor with it is none other than the Moto G (2nd Generation) but as usual, Micromax is offering better specs. The main attractions in this smartphone are the selfie camera, octa-core processor, 5 inch HD display and the latest Android KitKat operating system. Micromax had also worked on minimizing the bezels around the display to make it host bigger display and still measuring lesser but the design of this phone isn’t that unique. Its rear part is inspired by the Galaxy Note 3 design as it got stitches all around the sides of the phone.
Overall, it’s a decent looking smartphone with the trust of Micromax and at Rs 12,749 it’s definitely a great option to have a look at.

So the offering specs and features are seriously better than other smartphones in this price range. I’m not including the Xiaomi Mi3 in comparison here since its availability is suspicious.
Front part of the device looks like any other Micromax and most of the Android smartphones while the rear part looks between the design standards of Micromax and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 designs. It features simple looking back with LED flash, camera, Micromax branding and speaker at the bottom along with stitched marks all around the sides of the phone. In a way it’s just a copy cat but in other, you’re getting the iconic and unique design in an affordable package.
The octa-core processor is good enough to meet all the requirements of playing apps and quality games while the 2GB of RAM is enough storage to play high quality games pretty easily unless they are having full HD resolution as the display is limited only to HD. 8GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB is another good and useful feature. Not to forget, the display is protected by Oleophobic coating.
At Rs 12,749 Micromax is offering a great phone (no doubt) but it’s still to ditch Moto G (2014) because of the user experience it offers.
