Micromax Bharat 5 Plus: take charge with this 5.2-inch smartphone with 5000 mAh battery that doubles up as a powerbank


With Micromax Bharat 5 Plus, it is about its huge 5000 mAh battery. But is that all to this smartphone? Find out more details here.

The last release that resembles slightly what is on show here is the Canvas 2 Q4310 that was released a little over 6 months ago. Let’s do a quick throwback of this device:

  • 5-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixels or ~294 ppi pixel density
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Gorilla Glass 5
  • Mediatek MT6737 chipset, Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-T720 graphics and 3GB RAM
  • 13MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, autofocus and LED flash
  • 5MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • 16GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 64GB maximum
  • Android Nougat 7.0
  • Li-Ion 3050 mAh battery
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • July 2017 release date
  • 11,990 Indian Rupee or ~ USD 185 price tag

Canvas 2 Q4310 doesn’t do much justification for its price, especially with its small 5-inch screen, average hardware and limited storage. Even the plus points such as good protection in the form of Gorilla Glass 5, decent camera setup, good battery and the latest operating system doesn’t help much regarding covering up its flaws.

Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the Bharat 5 Plus:

  • 5.2-inch HD screen with 720 x 1280 pixels, 16:9 ratio or ~282 ppi density
  • Mediatek MT6737 chipset, Quad-core 1.3 GHz and 2GB RAM
  • 8MP primary camera with LED flash
  • 5MP secondary camera with LED flash
  • 16GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 64GB maximum
  • Android Nougat 7.0
  • Non-removable Li-Po 5000 mAh battery
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • January 2018 release date
  • 6,980 Indian Rupee or ~ USD 109 price tag

Guess the advertising is correct, as there’s nothing much going on with the Bharat 5 Plus other than having a huge 5000 mAh battery.

With a standby time of 21 days, this is very useful if you are out and about without any electricity. Even then, it charges other devices for fun which is what a good companion should be all about.

Regarding screen, the Bharat 5 Plus sports a decent 5.2-inch HD screen. But there’s nothing worthy about its hardware though, as it is as entry-level as it can be.

On the camera department, it is good to know that the 5MP selfie camera does come with an LED flash.  Then there’s the 8MP primary camera also with a LED flash.

With little 16GB internal storage available, there will be lots of limits on the number of apps and storage that you can install on the Bharat 5 Plus. Thankfully, there’s the expansion slot for an additional 64GB of space.


Micromax Bharat 5 Plus is cheap with the USD 109 price tag. But even when it is this cheap, there’s nothing much that will wow you about this smartphone. Let down by its mediocre hardware and storage limitation; it makes things up slightly with the 5MP selfie camera with LED flash and a huge 5000 mAh battery setup.

Micromax Bharat 5 Plus is currently available for 6,890 Indian Rupee or ~ USD 109 and is available in Black colour only.
