When looked at closely, the Micromax Canvas Infinity Life does look like a good choice if you’re looking for a phone for everyday usage. It has a nice display with good cameras, and for the most part, offers a smooth experience.
The Micromax Canvas Infinity Life features with a 5.4-inch IPS LCD screen with a screen resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. It runs on Android v7.1 (Nougat) OS, paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. For the processor, the phone uses a Quad-Core Cortex A53, MediaTek MT6737 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. The phone comes with a battery capacity of 2500mAh.
As for storage, Micromax Canvas Infinity Life offers 2GB RAM with 16GB inbuilt storage capacity that is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.
It comes with a 13MP primary camera and an 8MP front snapper to take care of your photography and selfie needs. It comes only in one colour – Black.
The Micromax Canvas Infinity Life was launched at a price of around Rs. 8,500.
The phone sports a minimal design. The volume and power buttons lie on the right. On the rear panel, you can find the camera and the LED flash placed in a horizontal setup. The Fingerprint Sensor is conveniently situated in the middle, just like in Xiaomi phones. The back cover is removable. And while the glossy shine of the back cover looks great, it is a grease and fingerprint magnet. The top part of the body houses the 3.5mm audio jack and the micro USB port is in the bottom part.
The Micromax Canvas Infinity Life boasts of a Full Vision display. It has a 5.45-inch HD (720 x 1440 pixels) with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a pixel density of 295 PPI. Thin bezels enclose the display. The colour reproduction and brightness levels are decent enough to give you a pleasant viewing experience. The top bezel houses the earpiece, the selfie camera, and a soft flash.
The Canvas Infinity Life uses a 64-bit MediaTek MT6737 Cortex A53 chipset to power its core. It also houses a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU for better graphical performance. While this combination bodes reasonably well with 2GB RAM, you might encounter occasional, minor lags. But overall, the phone performs decently, and everyday tasks aren’t a hassle with the phone.
The phone has a 13MP rear camera (f/2.0 aperture lens) with a Sony Exmor-RS CMOS Sensor. It has various setting options like ISO control, Exposure compensation, and much more. Plus, it comes with features such as Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, Touch to focus, Continuous Shooting, and HDR imaging. The daylight shots come out looking great, with vibrant colours and the right amount of details. For night-time or low-light settings, there’s a powerful LED flash that helps capture crisp and detailed images. The 8MP front camera also comes with a soft flash to help you click amazing selfies in both bright and low-light settings.
The phone has a 2500mAh removable, Li-ion battery. According to Micromax, the battery offers a talk time of 9 hours. However, in the real world, the battery performance is quite disappointing. Even while engaging in day-to-day routine tasks on the phone (like calling, texting, using social media apps, etc.), the battery level starts to drop fast. Clearly, the phone isn’t built for intensive gaming, browsing, and online video streaming.
In terms of connectivity, the smartphone includes many basic options such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS, FM Radio, micro USB port (with USB OTG support), 2G/2G/4G support, and a 3.5mm jack. Among sensors, it has a Fingerprint Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Ambient Light Sensor, and an Accelerometer.
On the whole, the Micromax Canvas Infinity Life is a decent smartphone that packs some useful features and specs at a budget-friendly price tag. It has an impressive display, great cameras, and a processor that delivers satisfactory performance. However, we wouldn’t mind if the phone had a better battery backup and higher RAM. In this price range, you can get phones with better specs from the house of Xiaomi and Huawei.
