Micromax Canvas A300 Gold is the best phone Micromax has ever designed. Even the built quality is the best they have ever introduced on a smartphone. The phone is made out of metal, certainly not aluminum but it feels like it. The phone is pretty heavy thanks to the non-aluminum metallic built, but it is that metallic built that gives this phone that panache to shine against well crafter phones like the Moto X and the Sony Xperia M2, anything around the same price range. Micromax Canvas A300 Gold feels good because of the built but it fits even better because of the design. It has a really well curved back panel that carves your hand perfectly when you hold it. Micromax Canvas A300 Gold is available only in Gold color as the name suggests.
A good display is what most of the Indians care about if not the whole design. Thanks to Micromax this phone won’t disappoint. Micromax Canvas A300 Gold has a 5.5 inch full HD display. That rounds up to about 401 ppi pixel density. Surely this means the display is sharp, but is it beautiful? Well, to an extent yes. It takes a lot to make a stunning display and I don’t think Micromax has that kind of firepower yet in their engineering team. The display looks really nice but the colors do not shine out as they would in the competing smartphones around the same price range. The display is still really sharp and colors are good just not the best.
Camera is one place where Micromax phones can improve the most. Micromax Canvas A300 Gold has a 16MP camera. It works just fine. I only have complaints with the shutter speeds which are still slow but otherwise the camera takes some beautiful shots. There are no more washed off colors produces by smartphone lenses of Micromax. The camera is accurate but it takes time to click a photo. And, slower shutter speeds mean easy blur if your hands are not steady and some disturbing low light photos which is like always. The front camera is a proper selfie camera or a video calling camera with 5MP sensor on the front.
Micromax has finally offered the latest and the best Android OS, v4.4.2 KitKat. Earlier their phones always came with one gen older versions but now you have the latest ones in hands. Micromax Canvas A300 Gold UI is not anything great. It is a very general Android UI with all the widgets and similar customization options that is pro Android.
This is a freakishly high performance phone. Micromax Canvas A300 Gold has an Octa Core processor by MediTek. They give you 2 GB of RAM and yes the heaviest of games can run butter smooth on the phone. The only problem is the GPU whose work is not commendable. The battery life is pretty standard, it will get you through a day of general usage. You get 32GB internal memory and no you cannot expand it. The Micromax Canvas A300 Gold works really well and it surely is worth the money you pay.
