Micromax, the famous and most-popular Indian smartphone has been successful is changing its brand image from affordable and cheap mobile brand to high-end and power-packed smartphone brand. Thanks to the best-selling and successful Canvas Series, Micromax had grabbed the position of number one Indian Smartphone brand. The various smartphones in the Micromax Canvas Series are packed with high-end hardware specifications and features, bound together at affordable price tags.

The latest entry in Micromax Canvas Series is the Micromax Canvas Sliver5, which is claimed to be the lightest smartphone ever. With just 97 grams of weight and 5.1mm thickness, this latest smartphone has also brought Wolverine aka Hugh Jackman, back in the Micromax Camp. The USP of this smartphone is its slimness and light body, which doesn’t compromise with hardware specification, features and the overall build quality. The price of this Android Smartphone in India is Rs.17, 999.


The Canvas Sliver5 sports a 4.8-inch AMOLED display, which produces a resolution on 1280 x 720 pixels at 306ppi pixel density. No, it doesn’t feature a Full HD display, but the AMOLED technology is capable enough to offer brilliant viewing experience from every angle. This display also features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect it from any accidental damage.

For an ultimate performance, this smartphone has been powered by a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410, Cortex-A53 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 2GB of RAM. We miss an octa-core processor here. The Adreno 306 GPU ensures smooth video playback and hassle free gaming experience on this device. Running on Google’s latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop Operating System, the Canvas Sliver5 will offer you latest Android features.

For your photography and selfie needs, the Micromax Canvas Sliver5 houses an 8 Megapixels (3264 x 2448) Sony IMX219 snapper with CMOS sensor. This rear snapper features professional mode, LED flash, Panorama, HDR and more. It can record Full HD 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. You can also capture great selfies with the 5 Megapixels front-facing camera.


The user gets 16GB of internal memory, which is not expandable. It also misses Dual SIM capability. Other connectivity features include 4G LTE, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Hotspot, GPS with A-GPS, MicroUSB 2.0, 3.5mm Audio Jack and more. It also features proximity sensor and accelerometer. Fuelled with 2000mAH Li-Ion battery, it claims up to 345 hours of stand-by and up to 8 hours of talk time with a single charge.

The Micromax Canvas Sliver5 has been launched with a price of Rs.17, 999, which looks somewhat overpriced with considering the tough competition in the segment. With rivals like Xiaomi Mi4, Huawei Honor 6, Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML) and Samsung Galaxy A5, another slim and stylish smartphone, Micromax should have kept the price tag near Rs.13, 000 or Rs.14, 000.

Overall, the Micromax Canvas Sliver5 is a complete Android Smartphone package, which is beautifully crafted to create a spark in your eyes at the first sight. The slim and light-weight body design attracts the young smartphone buyers, who want to buy something unique to stand different in the crowd.
