Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

To mange my requirement for a large screen keypad that's accommodating for large fingers against my desire to have an average-sized portable device is an ongoing struggle with this device which comes with a large screen; with typing convenience winning in. With all the advanced call management features present in the Micromax Canvas 5, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, are very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

For me carrying a phone as big as this Micromax Canvas 5 is really inconvenient, even if it offers me easy typing on its large keyboard with properly spaced out alphabets. In any family trips or parties you will always find me clicking away relentlessly and a smartphone like the Micromax Canvas 5 will always be a great companion. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Micromax Canvas 5 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I get an awesome realistic gaming experience and crystal clear text display with the huge 5.2 inch screen of the Micromax Canvas 5. I don't feel much of a difference between quad core and octa core processors as most of my favourite games are optimized for quad-core and run fairly the same on both. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup if you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Micromax Canvas 5 was its 5.2 inches display. The awesome screen size and the fantastic videos of the Micromax Canvas 5 is something I simply can't get enough of. I really don't care much about the screen type or resolution; I just want my movies and videos on a large screen. Large screen typing for me is pretty cool; of course I have to use both my hands for this. The super cool 13 MP camera of this smartphone is so addictive. I love and live for clicking, posing and posting pictures all day long, that's how cool the 13 MP camera really is – use it once and you too will be a wannabe shutterbug. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files.
