Micromax recently launched its latest flagship smartphones under its popular and iconic Canvas series – the Canvas 6 and Canvas 6 Pro, which both are priced at Rs 13,999. The Micromax Canvas 6 is the company’s first smartphone to boast a metallic design and fingerprint combination. While the Canvas 6 Pro sports a more powerful processor and higher amount of RAM than the Canvas 6 at the same price tag. The Canvas 6 Pro is for those who are looking for high performance processor and lag-free computing experience on their smartphones. To deliver a better processor and configuration at the same price as the Canvas 6, the brand has encased the Canvas 6 Pro with a cheaper plastic body.
If you are thinking about buying the Micromax Canvas 6 Pro, then we would like to tell you that it is an outstanding performer priced under Rs 14,000. We have compiled the specifications of the phone in this article, so you can decide if it fulfills your smartphone needs or not.
Micromax Canvas 6 Pro – features of the high performance phablet
The Micromax Canvas 6 Pro sports a plastic body with a removable back panel, giving you access to the microSD card slot, SIM card slots and the battery. The phone has rounded edges, so it fits comfortably in your hand even being a phablet offering. It sports an ergonomic polymer body, which offers better grip and doesn’t easily slip from your hand. The phone has its rear camera placement on the top of rear panel in the middle, while the camera flash sits below it. The device doesn’t offer capacitive buttons, and relies solely on the onscreen system buttons for navigation. Overall, the Canvas 6 Pro may not be the best looking device on the market, but it still looks appealing and durable for the asking price.
Display and OS
The Micromax Canvas 6 Pro flaunts a large 5.5-inch display bearing a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The phone offers an excellent media viewing experience on its large display, which reproduces rich colours thanks to a high pixel density of 401 pixels per inch. The device also gets a layer of the scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top of the screen. As for the software, the phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and is expected to be upgraded to the newer Android Marshmallow in the coming months. The phone also comes with the brand’s Around suite of services, which offers food delivery, hotels, flight, shopping services and cabs on the go.
Moving on to the configuration, the Micromax Canvas 6 Pro utilizes a powerful 2.0GHz octa-core MediaTekHelio MT6795M processor that supports 64-bit computing. The phone is equipped with a beefy 4GB of RAM, which offers lag-free user experience. Thanks to the octa-core CPU and 4GB of RAM, you can run any high-end game you want on the phone without worrying about the lag. For storage, the handset is loaded with 16-gigabytes of internal memory, which users can further increase by inserting a microSD card.
For imaging, the Micromax Canvas 6 Pro is loaded with a decent 13-megapixel primary snapper, accompanied by an LED flash, high-speed phase detection autofocus, full HD video recording, and a range of software tweaks to enhance captured images. For selfies and video calling, the device is equipped with a 5-megapixel front shooter. So when it comes to the primary imaging, the Canvas 6 Pro offers excellent experience in its range, but it won’t impress the hardcore selfie lovers with the mediocre 5MP front shooter.
Connectivity and battery
In terms of connectivity, the Canvas 6 Pro is a future-ready device with support for India’s both FDD-LTE band 3 and TDD-LTE band 40 4G networks. The phone’s other connectivity options include dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro-USB and A-GPS. As for the battery, the device is fuelled by a decent 3,000mAh battery, which should last for a day on regular usage. However, when playing games every now and then, you will need to charge the battery more frequently.
The Micromax Canvas 6 Pro is among the best phablets the company has ever produced till date. The phone offers an excellent full HD display, a very powerful octa-core Helio processor and 4GB of RAM, which is rare in its price range. It offers lag-free user interface and an excellent gaming experience thanks to the high-end configuration. The phone comes with a decent camera experience, a large battery and decent camera features. However, if Micromax had offered a metallic design and fitted the phone with a fingerprint sensor at the same price tag, then it could’ve been the ultimate phablet to crave for.
