Detailed Review


Your eyes will not suffer strain with this display size. This smartphone has a resolution of HD, 1280x720 pixels to present. The Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + flaunts a display of 11.94 cms; approximately 4.7 inches. This phone is credited with IPS Display, as a bonus to the standard ones to present a remarkable experience.


The battery offers 180 hrs of standby time on 2G network. The battery of this smartphone that bids 7 hours of talk time on 2G network might be a point of apprehension for heavy users.


Megapixels are not the sole determiners of the quality of your images and videos. Even with a Yes, 8 megapixels camera, your photographs will surprise you, with a quality sensor and other smartphone applications. Recording videos has as much pleasure as taking pictures with this smartphone, given its pixel resolution of Yes, 8 pixels and that it provides a recording mode of Yes, 1920 x 1080. Though it's not much considering the latest entrants, yet the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + does feature a Yes, 5 MP front camera; but it is meaningless spending money on a feature that might be inconsequential to you.

Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

It is meaningless fidgeting with a screen that poses real struggle 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 functio. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always opt for something like the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + that has all the advanced boasts of to ease the communication. Bluetooth 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, is very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake compromising to dinner parties; and the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + with good recording features is really recommended for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 +, however good the other is credited with might be. 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. The extendable memory of the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones with high internal memory that also is furnished with highly confusing is credited with.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Although the display looks great, the tiny screen size is too awkward to please the gamer or the ardent bookworm in me. Gaming on the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + with 1.4 GHz is decently fluid, not that exciting though; For the long haul however, I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming. Not just multi-tasking, but running heavier games and apps simultaneously is breeze with 1 GB RAM. This is a decent storage for my books and few of my apps, but I can't imagine buying a smartphone that can't accommodate my ever-growing gaming library. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4.7 inches display of the Micromax Canvas Knight Cameo A290 + was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. Yes, 8 MP is not that particularly pleasing camera resolution. You are able to easily go for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think image be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selifes. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. I have the flexibility to now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. I don't worry charging when I have the flexibility to charge my phone with the laptop; I have the flexibility to even transfer files with this. I can't be choosing between which media files to keep and which ones to delete, due to internal storage as low as 8 GB. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always select larger internal storage.
