Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Review & is it an iphone 6 copy ?
Hello, today’s review is again about the product of the company currently in talks in Asian Markets ” Micromax “. They have given many new budget friendly phones to their customers and some of them are really great including the famous Canvas Hue 2 ( Review here ) , Micromax Canvas Knight 2 ( Review ) , Yu Yuphoria ( Review ) and many others.But this time they have gone too far.Yes, because this time they have come up with the phone which is competing directly with the likes of Apple iphone 6. The Canvas Sliver 5, this smartphone’s design is just like the iphone 6 and don’t know why micromax has built this type of design. Let’s get some more detailed info about the phone.
As I said Earlier , it’s design is made to look like an iphone 6. it is for those who are mad for an Apple iphone 6 but are low on budget.But wait a moment , is it really the same ? The Micromax Sliver 5 has 4.8-inch screen and it is 5.1 mm Thick.the phone is available in both black , white & Gold variants.it is sleek. it does have the sharp edges but it is not that comfortable in the hands.
Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 has the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection. and the screen comes with the 4.8-Inch HD AMOLED( 720*1280 pixels ) Display. so overall they did manage to give the better display but not the high resolution thing and because of this they got another minus one. Have a look at the phone design & Dislplay :
Specs, Performance :
The Price of the phone is around Rs.17,999 ( ~$300 ) and for this price you will be getting very limited features and basic things only. nothing is big in this category this time. The Smartphone comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Processor that is coupled with the 2 GB of RAM and most importantly it comes with only 16 GB of Storage and no Micro-SD Card slot. Micromax has focused on making the phone thin .that’s why they have not included the Dual sim trending and sd card slot. but this leads to another minus one. Yes , the phone is very light in the weight, it’s just 97 gram and that’s the one thing they have done right. Other than this , the phone comes with the Latest Andorid Lollipop 5.0.1 Operating system. one more good thing to mention is it comes with the 64-bit 1.2 GHz Quad Core chip.
Camera and Battery :
The Worst part of the phone is here. Yes , the phone camera is not that much good when you see the price. it delivers the 8 MP Rear Camera and 5 MP Front Facing Selfie Camera. the phone has the Sony CMOS Sensors still the camera quality is way behind it’s competitors.
Regarding the Battery , they have again disappointed with the battery. it comes with only 2000 mAh battery to manage huge 4.8-inch screen.so you will need to charge it twice in a day at least.
Final Verdict :
You should not buy this phone if you are not interested in buying an iphone 6 clone. But if you are an Apple fan and want one phone which looks like it and has medium Budget then you can go for this . but i would suggest not to go with this , instead you can buy the Xioami Mi4i. which is also pretty similar to an iphone 6.
