goes for style with Canvas Sliver 5 Smartphone at Rs 17,999If you’re thinking there is some error in the header then we would like to assure you that you are reading right. This is exactly the space where Micromax is eyeing its buyers now with focus on making sure the losses aren’t incurred on devices anymore.

https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gifCanvas Sliver is their long waited so-called flagship device which caters to the style conscious youth consumers in the country and for Rs 17,999 you’re as per the company getting the lightest and slimmest phone one can find anywhere in the market (strong claims). So their latest Canvas offering has lot to offer for the Fashionista but you can’t bet against others wanting a bit more than this, especially for this pricing.

Canvas Sliver weighs at 97 grams (you heard that right) and with 5.1mm dimensions there is only so much you can fit into a slim-fit product after all. So what have they actually managed to offer? Let’s take a look, Canvas Sliver 5 doesn’t get a 5-inch form size, instead they have gone for a 4.8-inch AMOLED HD display with able support from Android 5.0 Lollipop on the software front.


It gets interesting when you get to know that a quad-core Snapdragon 410 CPU for this price with 2GB RAM and non-expandable 16GB storage space available. Sounds similar to a lot of devices selling in the country right now but surely the Rs 17,999 could have been looked at once (or even twice).

On the imaging front, Micromax must be hoping that people get comfortable with an 8MP snapper (with Sony CMOS sensor), when everyone goes on the megapixel count race. Add to all this and you get a phone loaded with a 2000mAh battery which is never going to please powerhouse users of the modern era when powerbanks are their bigger life support.

So, for Rs 17,999 Micromax is giving you a light deal with lightness epitomized in every nook and corner of the Canvas Sliver 5 4G smartphone.
