It is powered by a 1.2GHZ quad- core cortex-7 processor along with 1 GB RAM so It will produce better processing than Canvas HD. It runs on Android 4.2.1 jelly bean OS and supports 2G,3G and WI-fi networks .
The Smart device is packed with a few gesture functions like flip to mute a call. When your phone rings, you can flip it to make silent the phone ring. The user can make calls by holding the mobile to ear like Samsung Galaxy S3. The company added the ‘blow-to-unlock’ feature also. The users can unlock their canvas 4 handsets by blowing air on the display.
For providing security, Micromax has given more protective cover with the phone that is absolutely free.

The above features are very similar to Samsung galaxy S4 but Samsung has started to giving such a features in low priced phones such as Galaxy Core (Rs. 15,499), S4 mini and Galaxy Mega series phones.
Verdict and Our Experience
The Canvas 4 is priced alongside the Samsung Galaxy Grand at approx. Rs.17,999. The handset is really amazing and there is no another smartphone available in the market like Canvas 4. This is the big gift in small price. We found it superior, while checked the camera output. The depth of field is good but flooded with some colour noise. The handset is complete package with all essential multimedia features. We played some Android games also on the Canvas 4 and the phone performed perfectly with smoothness. Overall performance is very good and you can make decision to buy it. I am sure that It will never disappoint you.
