This smartphone has a resolution of HD, 1280x720 pixels to present. The display sported by Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + measures about 4.7 inches. This phone features IPS Display, as a bonus to the standard ones to present a remarkable experience. You needn't worry about straining your eyes as the screen size is not too small.


The standby time offered is nearly 180 hrs on 2G network. If you are a heavy user, then the 7 2G talk time hours might be slightly worrisome.


Equally savourable it might be to click pictures, video recording is equally particularly pleasing. Though it's ousted considering the latest entrants, yet the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + does feature a Yes, 5 MP front camera; but no point spending money on a feature that might be of no real worth to you. The kind of pictures and videos your camera produces does not depend only on megapixels. Based on the sensor quality and the smartphone's other applications; you have the flexibility to get surprisingly good photography results even with a Yes, 8 megapixels camera.

Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. I never like choosing between my collection of images for deleting and clearing storage, so this Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + is definitely not preferred by me. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Although I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming, the 1.4 GHz is not that bad an option. It's a real smooth experience with gaming or multitasking on the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + with its 1 GB RAM. I can't buy a smartphone that has no storage available for my huge collection of games, even if it can accommodate all my ebooks and apps. 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 Knight Cameo A290 + was its 4.7 inches display. The screen size of the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 8 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. 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. Lower internal storage like 8 GB makes me chose which movies, music, images and videos to keep or delete from your phone. A larger internal storage suits me more than average internal memory as I hate deleting my smartphone content due to memory issues.
