Micromax Canvas A300 Gold Review

By -

Micromax is giving their dreams the funding it needs. The results are coming and the only way they can go now is up. Sometime between their release of the Canvas HD and this current phone we are reviewing, I thought they were just blazing out phone with no actual outline of what they wanted to sell. Micromax Canvas A300 Gold seems to be their major project. It has an unlike Micromax price but now people trust this brand, let’s see if you can trust this phone.

Design

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.

Display

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

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.

Software

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.

Performance

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.

Passion and Inspiration drives my life and I get them both from technology. Getting to write about it is an absolute bliss. The bliss comes from people reading what you want to convey. There is nothing better for a person than his views to be heard. I am a music, tv shows, movies and technological enthusiast.

    I purchased MM Gold A300. In first look set is awesome, It give very rich appearance. But well know phrase ” All glitters are not gold”. MM has promised a sweet dream in look but nightmare in hardware quality. It has a really poor quality of hardware. Of course one can not expect better quality hardware in 21K cost but its not worth to buy this mobile in 21K. WiFi 1 out of 10, Battery 3 out of 10, internal sound 3 out of 10. Very next day i purchased from flipkart MM Black Gold A200 got touch screen issue. It starts auto working and finally got scraped. I sent a replacement order hope i will get soon. Look 10 out of 10. Color 10 out of 10, design 10 out of 10, rear Cam 6 out of 10, front cam 8 out of 10, apps 8 out of 10. Over all you would not be happy with this mobile. One thing always kills your mind that MM cheep hardware will last “How Long???”. I think MM has to work more to improve its product to compete in Indian Market. I would request every one not to go with MM A300 Canvas. Do not scrap your hard earning with MM as i have did. I am really not satisfy with this mobile but the problem is Flipkart is not returning the money they said only 30 days replacement if they think it need to be replace then only. But what after 30 days ??? You have to run to MM service center. I visited there and fined more than 250 people on service center in line every day. Once you enter in service center you have to wait for not less than 10-15- or 20 days for your product to get repair with no guaranty that when you are coming back to service center again. Finally One last word for all of you “DO NOT BUY Micromax Canvas Gold A300” Its still incomplete to give you better service.
