Making a buying decision on the Canvas 1 majorly relies on the budget of the buyer. For those looking to spend at max INR 6000 on their handset, the Canvas 1 presents itself as a great option. Keep in mind, the features are in accordance with this price range, and the performance of the phone is nothing out of the ordinary.
The phone is a good purchase as a backup handset for adults, who want smart features on their 2nd phone, or for teenagers/kids looking to get their first hands-on experience at what a smartphone feels like, without suffering too much lag or stutter while using the device.
A decent specification sheet, at least on paper, and a very competitive price tag make the Micromax Canvas 1 a very viable option in the entry level Android segment.
