Who would have thought that by spending under $170, you can get Micromax Canvas Infinity with its 18:9 aspect ratio seamless display and large 5.7-inch screen. Whereas for Lenovo K8 Plus, you will get a smartphone with dual 13MP+5MP primary camera.
Micromax is a well-known brand from India that dishes out value for money smartphones, and Canvas Infinity is looking to do just that. Let us begin by scrutinising further as to what it has to offer as per below:
- 5.7-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1440 pixels ~279 ppi pixel density
- Full Vision Display
- Fingerprint sensor
- Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 chipset, Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 308 graphics and 3GB RAM
- 13MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, autofocus and LED flash
- 16MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, autofocus and LED flash
- 32GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 128GB maximum
- Android Nougat 7.1.2, upgradable to Android Oreo 8.0
- Removable Li-Ion 2980 mAh battery
- Dual-sim and 4G LTE
- September 1st 2017 release date
- 9,999 Indian Rupee or ~$155 USD price tag
As mentioned earlier, the first thing that will catch your attention is the Canvas Infinity’s large 5.7-inch Full Vision Display that lets you experience the real meaning of immersion with a larger-than-life experience while still being comfortable to hold in one hand. It might do better with a Full HD resolution, but you can’t have everything in life. Then there’s the usual fingerprint sensor to cater to all your biometric purposes.
Moving on to the performance side of things, Canvas Infinity is being powered by the Snapdragon 425 chipset with a decent quad-core processor, decent graphics and 3GB RAM. You can say that it comes short over here, as it falls somewhere in the medium-lower range. Still capable of running most apps and games, but limited to those that are not demanding.
Camera-wise, it comes equipped with a 13MP primary camera which can be seen as quite average these days. But there’s nothing average about its 16MP selfie camera with advanced image processing and LED flash. It lets you take selfies in the dark that is still capable of producing great results.
The amount of storage found on the Canvas Infinity is just enough, with 32GB internal storage that can be expanded to a maximum of 128GB. Sufficiently good to install all your favourite apps and games without any hiccups.
With just 2980 mAh battery supplying juice to Canvas Infinity, you might find that there’s just sufficient to power up the smartphone for a day.
They say to save the best for last, Canvas Infinity has the ability to update to the latest Android Oreo 8.0 operating system once it is available. This should add a few more months to its lifespan, which adds more value to it.
Moving on to the K8 Plus. If you like to own a dual-camera smartphone, look no further! This affordable smartphone may just be for you!
- 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~424 ppi pixel density
- Fingerprint sensor
- Gorilla Glass 3 protection
- Mediatek MT6757 Helio P25 chipset, Octa-core 2.5 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-T880 MP2 graphics and 3GB RAM
- Dual 13MP+5MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash
- 8MP secondary camera
- 32GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to maximum 128GB
- Android Nougat 7.1
- Non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery
- Dual sim and 4G LTE
- September 2017 release date
- 10,999 Indian Rupee or ~$169 USD price tag
First up, K8 Plus might not be as large but with a 5.2-inch IPS screen that comes with a Full HD resolution – it might be enough for some. You then have the fingerprint sensor and Gorilla Glass 3 protection which is a nice feature to have.
Moving on to its hardware, K8 Plus packs a perfect punch in the form of the Helio P25 chipset, blazingly fast octa-core processor, good graphics and 3GB RAM. This puts it somewhere in the mid-range territory.
Then comes the best part about the K8 Plus which is its camera. The dual 13MP+5MP camera lets you dive into the amazing world of smartphone photography, especially with bokeh effect. The 8MP selfie camera then makes the package complete.
Storage-wise, Canvas Infinity have a similar amount of 32GB internal storage that can also be expanded up to a maximum of 128GB via the microSD slot.
Last but not least, a large 4000 mAh battery ensures that Canvas Infinity have the legs to last for a day or two in between charging.
Micromax Canvas Infinity will make heads turn with its large 5.7-inch screen, Full Vision Display and a 13MP-16MP camera setup. The promise of getting an update to the upcoming Android Oreo 8.0 and a cheaper price tag sweetens the deal.
