Available for Rs 5,999 micromax canvas selfie 2 It is the ‘most affordable selfie smartphone’ available in the market, but how is its performance? Let us know.

Look and Design

The build quality of the Canvas Selfie 2 is quite good and the plastic used in it does not look cheap. Micromax has used its U series design in this handset. The handset has a 5 inch HD IPS display. The selfie camera has a 5-megapixel sensor and is located at the center above the display.

Capacitive buttons are provided for navigation which are backlit. The power button and volume rocker are on the right side. The micro-USB port and headphone socket are present at the bottom. Its primary camera is also 5 megapixels. Perhaps the company has adopted this strategy to keep the price of the handset low.

The handset has a removable battery of 2000 mAh. There are two 3G SIM slots and a microSD card slot at the rear.

The Canvas Selfie 2 smartphone has a thickness of 9 millimeters and is quite light. There is nothing spectacular in the looks of the phone, but considering the price its build quality is quite good. What surprised us was why the company did not provide an LED flash with the selfie camera.

Specifications and Software
The smartphone is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582M chipset with 1 GB RAM. Its inbuilt storage is 8 GB out of which 4.74 GB is available to the user. The handset does not support 4G, but you will find 3G support in both the SIM slots. Canvas Selfie 2 comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The company has also provided many third-party apps along with it, whose usefulness is questionable. You will also get the option to switch to Hindi language. Most of the third-party apps present in the handset can be uninstalled.

performance
Even though the device has 1 GB RAM, the performance of Canvas Selfie 2 cannot be called weak. However, heavy games like Dead Trigger 2 and many apps take time to load. Overall, Lollipop runs smoothly. Despite watching videos for a long time, the phone or its display does not get too hot.

The touch response of the display and capacitive buttons is not the best. We found that the handset was not responding properly to OneTouch inputs at times. The viewing angles of the screen are decent, but its brightness level is quite low. For this reason it was not easy to use the handset in sunlight. However, color reproduction is satisfactory.

We didn’t face any network problems either. The handset worked well on 3G networks. Call quality was good. Appropriate sound came from the mono speaker present in the handset.

The Canvas Selfie 2 played our full-HD videos with ease. The headset that came with the handset was comfortable to use, but its audio quality is not very good. We would suggest you to buy a new headset.

The performance of the front camera of Canvas Selfie cannot be called satisfactory at all. We believe that Micromax could have worked more on the selfie feature of this device. Autofocus is not present in the 5 megapixel front camera and flash is also not provided. For these reasons it becomes very difficult to use it in low light. However, camera performance is good in suitable lighting.

The rear camera also comes with a 5-megapixel sensor, but it has autofocus. With this you will get modes like Night and Live Photo. You can also use HDR mode. The interface of the camera is very basic and it is also very easy to use.

The battery capacity of 2000 mAh seems a bit low in terms of figures, but given the low resolution display it will easily last a day. In our video loop test the phone lasted 9 hours and 7 minutes before switching off completely.

our decision
Micromax Canvas Selfie is not the worst option in the Rs 6,000 price range. We believe that the company could have done a better job with the selfie camera of the handset, especially when it is trying to sell it in the name of selfie. According to us, a selfie handset should have autofocus sensor and flash. Without these features the handset becomes like any other entry-level smartphone.

The build quality of Canvas Selfie 2 is good. It supports 3G on both SIMs. The handset runs on Android Lollipop and plays full-HD videos smoothly. And its price is also not very high. However, the resolution of the display is low. Some third-party apps cannot be removed by users. Battery life is also average and the performance of the selfie camera is not satisfactory.

If you can spend a little more money we will meizu m2 Would suggest to buy. This is a much better handset. Along with having a 5 megapixel front camera, it also supports 4G LTE. And it has many such features which are not present in Micromax handsets.
