Micromax Nepal launched Canvas Turbo for Rs.36,473 here in Nepal like more than a year ago. If you remember, the phone was launched by Hollywood superstar Hugh Jackman. But now here at CAN-infotech 2015, the price has reduced to Rs.15000 which makes this phone worth every penny.

This is the best we have seen in Canvas Turbo than any other Canvas series. They have added a metallic cover which looks solid than a standard plastic cover. With a dimension of 5.05 x 2.80 x 0.34 inch, it feels much balanced and more compact than their preceding series.
Finally, we get to see a Full HD display from Micromax. With a resolution of 1920 x 1080 bringing in a wonderful 441 ppi pixel density, the screen looks pleasing but Micromax still has to improve their color saturation and brightness levels .It has pretty good viewing angles. We were also a bit disappointed that they didn’t have a gorilla class protection.
Powered by 1.5 GHz Quad core processor from MediaTek Cortex-A7 (MTK 6589T) and a GPU of SGX544 is better but not the best. When it comes to playing games, it can play casual games with ease but when it comes to high-end games Like MC5, Riptide2,Real Racing 3 etc. we can see some lag and dropped frame rates.
It has a 2 GB of RAM which is admirable. It has a 16 GB of internal memory but there is no external SD which is, in fact, disappointing.
The rear camera is 13 MP with autofocus supported which can record 1080p video at 30 fps. It has 5 MP front camera mostly used for HD video chat. The day light performance of the camera is very good and low light performance is also quite decent.
The Micromax canvas turbo offers a jellybean 4.2.1 out of the box, which is almost stock android. There isn’t much customization like in Samsung mobiles. The interface is clean, snappy and fast.
