Micromax Canvas Hue AQ5000 Review & Price List

The background:

Micromax is trying to win users by producing budget friendly phones with high specs. It has recently on January 16, 2015 launched its first budget friendly 3000 mAh battery phone with amazing specifications. It is priced only 10,000 INR cheaper than most other smart phones with a 3000 mAh battery. The launch’s main highlight was the battery which the company claims will last for 30 days.

The phone is designed to look classic and the body is very thin. It falls in the same category as Motorola Moto G with similar specs but Moto G still manages to rule the market! It is better than other phones like Xolo in terms of performance and style.

Micromax Canvas Hue AQ5000 Design & looks:

Micromax attempts at recreating the iPhone and Samsung Alpha series in terms of style. The classic iphone colors white and golden are used in this phone in a stylish manner. The full white body is covered on all sides with a metal golden border. The primary 8MP camera is placed on the top right corner along with LED flash. The surface is very smooth and it feels good in your hands.

The 5 inch display screen is lined with Corning Gorilla glass 3 which Samsung intelligently ignored in the Alpha series as the clarity is slightly disturbed because of the Gorilla glass. Nevertheless, there are still many buyers who look for this currently trending glass in the mobile phones. To top this, the phone also offers AMOLED capacitive touch screen with 16 M colors to provide a vibrant and clear display. The phone offers 720×1280 pixels resolution with approximately 293 ppi which is quite less for a 5-inch display screen. It is currently available only in one color.

The Hardware Specifications:

The phone functions on a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor which is disappointing as many smart phones in the same price range and a little higher provide Octa core processor. But the 3000mAh battery should make up for it. But this great 3000mAh battery comes with a small disadvantage. It cannot be removed.

The RAM is 1GB and the internal memory provided is 8GB that is expandable up to 32GB.

The 8 MP camera can produce high resolution pictures of 3264 x 2448 pixels and has features like autofocus, touch focus, face detection, geo-tagging and LED flash. The secondary camera does not have LED flash but one can take great selfies with the 5MP camera. The phone also offers a full HD video recording. The camera quality is exceptional and you are guaranteed to love it!

It is dual SIM while one supports GSM the other supports WCDMA. A microUSB cable is provided for charging and it does not have a HDMI port.

The 3000mAh battery has a whooping 280 hours of standby time and can provide 9 hours of 3G talk time.

The software, OS, Apps:

The Andriod 4.4.2 KitKat version is upgradable to Lollipop and the phone have Java support. The phone performs well with no noticeable lag. Micromax has customized the user interface and this phone does not have an app drawer. It can be seen as a disadvantage as most of the users might not like this. But it also helps in accessing the apps in a single home screen window.

Basic sensors like the proximity sensor and gyroscope can be found along with accelerometer and ambient light sensor which helps in adjusting any kind of light for good pictures. The phone is also capable of producing good images when exposed to full sunlight.

Basic connectivity options like WiFi, WiFi hotspot and Bluetooth are all available.
The music player supports the following formats WAV, MID, AMR, MP3, AAC while the video player supports MP4, 3GP, 3GPP and HD formats. Navigation technology is powered by Google maps.

The phone graphics, processor and battery are the perfect package for a rich gaming experience. You can play all high-end games without having to fear slowing down the processor. It is great for gaming.

The keypad also gets a little makeover as it is Swiftkey enabled and does not use the Android stock keyboard. The Swiftkey keyboard is available in interchangeable colors and modes. It is a lot better than the Android keyboard.

It does not offer 4G connectivity while most other phones in the same price range offer 4G connectivity with the following specifications.

The verdict:

The Micromax Hue AQ5000 is an overall a good phone. It is affordable and has a great battery backup and life. The upgradable Android version, exceptional Camera and the little customizations made by Micromax in the User Interface are all great features with the only let down being the processor. The phone would have been near perfect with a 1.5 GHz processor. This is also not your type of phone if you are looking for 4G options.

If you want to buy a stylish budget friendly phone in this price range then this can be your choice! The phone is very light in spite of the metal frame. You can buy this phone if your focus is on Camera quality.
