Micromax Canvas Turbo A200 Mini Review

By -

Even Micromax have started releasing their “Mini” phones, they have now come up with a Mini version of their successful Micromax Canvas Turbo, the Mini version is named the A200 whereas the original was the A250. They got some heavy revenue flowing in with the original A250, let’s see what the A200 has in store.

Design

We all know Micromax is not high on design. This phone makes no glorified roar in that area as well. It surely is a tad mark up from their usual design standards but that was well from the Micromax Canvas A250. The Micromax Canvas A200 Mini fits really well in your hands. It has almost the similar design and built quality as that of the predecessor. Micromax Canvas A200 Mini is a tad smaller and hence ideal for your hands as well as your pockets.

Display

They have not just made the display smaller but Micromax Canvas A200 Mini has a 720p HD display rather than a full HD 1080p. Micromax Canvas A200 Mini comes with 4.7 inches of display size which according to me is ideal size of a phone rather than a 5.0 inch and higher. The display is pretty accurate. It has got good viewing angles and surprisingly deep black levels though you can see them lacking on the edges. Micromax Canvas A200 Mini has just the correct sharpness thanks to a decent ppi density. The display will certainly not disappoint you.

Camera

Micromax Canvas A200 Mini has gone for an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera. I don’t know why the trend in these budget smartphone makers has gone out for 5MP front facing cameras. Even then they are not able to draw the quality on video calls that the established smartphone makers are able to do from 2MP front facing camera. Micromax Canvas A200 Mini’s primary camera is just fine. You can use it extensively for photo sharing on social networking sites but it won’t hold good for holiday photography.

Software

Micromax Canvas A200 Mini comes with Android v4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. They have not gone with a heavy skin on the Android. The user interface is pretty ok and works just fine. You certainly get a lot of apps to choose from the Google Play store. The phone comes up with some gimmicky features that I won’t say you use much.

Performance

If anything I know about Micromax phones is, they tend to die after a while. The Micromax Canvas A200 Mini would lash out with it’s 1.3GHz Quad Core processor and 1GB of RAM but within 3 quarters of a year you will have to wait your life out for you inputs to be projected in the game you play. Initially this phone is really smooth but only time will tell if it is a true Micromax phone or not. The battery life is pretty much okay, it can get you through 1 day of high usage.

Micromax Canvas A200 Mini comes for Rs. 14490

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.
