Micromax A115

Micromax seems to have taken a cue from New Samsung by continuously releasing a flow of new Micromax A115mobile phones for different areas and costs. One of the latest inclusions in their increasing profile is the Canvas 3D. Micromax is not the first company to dabble in 3D mobile phones. HTC and LG have already tried their arms at it but the high cost and the deficiency of 3D material was what murdered them. The Canvas 3D on the other hand is designed to give same features but at less than 50 percent the cost. Will the Micromax A115 handle to popularise 3D mobile phones or has Micromax affected too much for a cheaper cost tag? Let us find out.

Design and Build

The Canvas 3D looks and seems enormous and not in an excellent way. The device informs us of the Canvas 2 A110, which had poor appearance and the Micromax A115 seems same. The device is quite dense at 11mm and large too at 188g. The only beneficial comment about the style is the he finished for the returning and new Firefox company logo, which looks a lot more satisfactory in comparison to their mature devices. The control buttons drop in place along either part of the cellphone but absence a very excellent fit. The responsive feel could have been better too. Advance, we have a 5-inch TFT show with Undressed Eye 3D technological innovation. Generally, it features using the parallax hurdle means for developing an impact of details without the need for unique cups. The problem is that the quality of neither the show nor the watching perspectives are very excellent, for both 2D and 3D watching. The HTC Evo 3D such as had a 4.3-inch show with a 540 x 960 quality (256ppi) so 3D material still showed up sharp and relatively pixel-free. The A115 has a meager 480 x 800 (188ppi) quality on an even bigger show so you can think about the decrease in sharpness.

The A115 is a dual-SIM cellphone along with a micro SD cards port for expansion. The cards port does not help hot-swap however. Despite the enormous ratios of the cellphone, we only have a 2000mAh battery power, which seems too little.


The Canvas 3D is operated by a MediaTek MT6577 SoC, the same chipset used in the Canvas 2 A110. The CPU operates at 1GHz and is associated with 512MB of RAM. The OS of choice is Android operating system Jelly Bean 4.1.2, which operates efficiently without any issues. You get the same mild skinning we’ve seen on all Micromax devices along with some of their own applications like M!Live, MZone+, etc. On board storage area is very less. Despite having a 4GB ROM, the real useful storage area is only 930MB.

Micromax has a unique collection app known as 3D Space which allows you accessibility images, activities, YouTube and video clips in 3D. The collection is intensely ‘inspired’ by LG’s execution on the Optimus 3D. Local 3D material looks excellent but the sweet-spot for watching it effectively without damaging your vision is very restricted so two people cannot perfectly see a 3D film together. The display also darkens quite a bit when the parallax hurdle sneakers in to make a 3D impact. In contrast to effective shutter cups, where both sight see a finish structure, here one eye only recognizes 50 percent the horizontally pixel depend which cause loss in details. The chipset can quickly handle a 3D 1080p film though and with very little drop over their words, it clip performs just excellent. You also have the choice of transforming current pictures to 3D with the media of a key. The details can be modified too. The show is incapable to generate a sharp 3D picture due to the low pixel depend, which is a shame; given this is the primary promoting feature for the Micromax A115.

The mp3 gamer gets a minimal renovation but beneath, it’s the same Jelly Bean mp3 gamer. The quality of sound is totally regular even with a couple of headphones. The back presenter is quite noisy so you will not skip any of the signals even in a noisy place. Video play-back results in a lot to be preferred. First of all, the Canvas 3D can only handle up to 720p film play-back efficiently. MP4 information do well in the inventory gamer but AVI, MKV, etc. have problems enjoying returning even in MX Player. The colors are not too vivid even in 2D technique and the watching perspectives are not great either.
