Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 Review


Micromax Canvas Doodle is the range of phones by Micromax that have a larger display and has functionality as that of the Note series of Samsung. Micromax has played a very successful role in bring good tech for a great price and they continue to do so. The Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 is the 3rd and the latest edition to the Doodle series.

Slowly and steadily Micromax is making their progress in this area. Now they have the money and the resources to push the development further. Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 has a way better design than the previous models. It is flat and has smaller curves around the edges which makes it easier to handle such a large phone. Obviously with the large dimensions it is not the easiest phone to move around. The have made it slimmer so that kind of helps a bit but not really. Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 is good to hold and it gives you a better softer plastic to hold on to.


With the improved 5MP camera you now see better detail in the photos. The colours seem to be more or less the same but that might just be their way to go with the photos. The user interface is friendly but not interactive. The photos come out good enough to be shared over the internet but not the vacation type. The work is visible but it is not enough yet. Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 is amazing in the way it takes photos, the shutter speeds are good for a Micromax camera.


They try to do too much for too less. Yes Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 does have a good display size but not the resolution. Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 comes with a 6.0 inch display. The display is not sharp at all, with the resolution of 480×858 pixels over such a large display, the pixilation is visible. You can see the detail being really bad. It is one of the least detailed phones of the time. Theoretically it is just 183 ppi pixel density and you can see that it is “that” low. Believe me, you cannot help that, but Micromax should have.

Software and Performance

Micromax does not have the best of UIs, it is not customized much. It looks like your day to day UI. Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 runs on the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean which is not the wow Android anymore. People like Xolo and Motorola are able to give consumers low cost phones with v4.4 KitKat, I am sure Micromax can too. Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 runs on the 1.2GHz Quad Core processor along with 2 gigs of RAM. It is a smooth operator and does not lag much. The battery is a bit scratchy as it is not the best backup you can get. It drains out pretty quick. You can expand the memory to up to 32GB.

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.
