A decent smartphone
Display and Configuration
The Micromax Canvas 2 Colours 8GB comes with a 5.0-inch IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels which results in a pixel density of 294ppi. The phone is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB RAM which is good enough to work with multiple applications at a time. The graphics is taken care by Mali-400 MP2 and it runs on the dated Jelly Bean operating system.
Camera and Connectivity
The smartphone is stacked with an 8MP autofocus primary camera with inbuilt features like Face detection, Geo tagging and Touch to focus. For video calling and clicking selfies, the phone comes with a 2MP front camera. To connect to other devices, it is configured to support Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, Mobile Hotspot, USB Port, Mass storage device, USB charging, USB On-The-Go, microUSB 2.0 and Bluetooth.
Storage and Battery
The Canvas 2 Colours 8GB houses an inbuilt memory of 8GB which can further be expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card which is good enough to store songs and videos. The device is backed by a 2,000mAh li-ion battery which provides more than ample talktime on 3G platform.
The Canvas 2 Colours 8GB is a decent low budget phone with good configuration, nice main camera and battery, but the major disappointments lie in the dated OS and front camera. Considering the loopholes it would be better to go with different options available around the same range.
