About the Phone
Moulded with metal, Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro looks like a sturdy model. A few pros and cons of this set are:
- It has a compact design which brings in easy-to-reach fingerprint scanner and comfortable-to-hold flat side panels.
- The display is quite good, with adequate brightness and color accuracy to deliver a great user experience. Plus, it comes with an 18:9 aspect ratio.
- The camera comes with an LED flash which is suitable for low-light images.
- The fingerprint scanner can be a bit slow to respond.
- The display appears washed out when taken outside, and sunlight legibility is quite low.
- The Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro struggles with performance especially when multiple apps are running together or during intensive gaming sessions.
- The battery is just about average and may chug through the entire day with light use.
- The camera, while arriving with flash, captures visual noise when clicked in low-light situations.
The Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro is a low mid-range phone, but it fails to capture the mid-range crowd with its poor performance and average battery.
Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro sets its mark in the competitive mid-range market with a decent design and power-packed internals. Arriving for Rs. 9,999, this cheap model can draw a lot of attention, since Micromax has already acquired a soft spot in the Indian crowd.
However, as a mid-range phone, Micromax does not invest much in its internals. While from the outside it looks capable enough, the phone comes with passable performance and delivers just average battery back-up. It is for the budget crowd looking to get into mid-range phones.
The Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro is a decent looking phone which comes with a metal exterior and a discreet plastic antenna bands. It also has metal keys. The phone is comfortable to hold and is quite easy to manage due to its narrow 72.8 mm thickness and a flat side panel. It comes with thin bezels, and so the fingerprint sensor has been placed at an ergonomic position on the rear panel.
It is easy to reach and quite accurate, though it tends to be a little sluggish. The SIM tray is placed at the side panel and has a dedicated slot for inserting microSD card. Plus, you have a dual SIM facility without sacrificing on storage expansion.
Micromax comes with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD with HD+ of about 1440 x 720 pixels. It has the aspect ratio of 18:9 display. The phone has right viewing angles which do not get distorted easily when tilted at hard angles.
Due to the presence of thin bezels, you get a lot of screen space to work with. The colors of the display are quite punchy though, even though it does not have adequate brightness. Outside, in sunlight, the legibility goes down a lot, and you would require to be in the shade to read on this screen.
Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro gets its power from the octa-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 430. It is an entry-level processor and is paired with 4GB RAM. The processor is quite dated but is adequate for doing day-to-day work. Running multiple apps and switching between apps can be a struggle since the performance starts to get sluggish when too many apps are running simultaneously.
In casual games, a few occasional frame drops are noticed, but when it comes to graphics-heavy games, the phone stutters a lot, even in low settings. Overall, the performance of the phone is below average.
The main highlight of Canvas Infinity Pro is its dual selfie camera. The phone features a 20MP and 8MP camera setup with flash. The secondary camera helps to click portrait mode, and you also get a Super Pixel Mode which combines different photos into one so that you get a better low-light image.
The front LED flash works well for low-light situations. The secondary 8MP camera is also used for depth sensing, though it comes with a wide angle lens suitable for clicking group photos. In ideal light conditions, the pictures come out decent with enough details to make out the objects.
However, in low-light, despite the flash, a bit of visual noise is captured. In portrait mode, the background blur tends to struggle a bit.
On the back panel, the Infinity Pro arrives with a 16MP camera and an f/2.0 aperture. You get different modes like time lapse, panorama, live filters, HDR, beauty mode, night, and superpixel. In daylight, the images appear a bit on the cooler side, though the details captured are decent. At night, the photos are grainy and almost difficult to discern.
Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro comes with a 3000 mAh battery. It is just a passable battery that can last about a day with light use. According to Micromax, the battery can go up to 200 hours of standby time, which is quite evident. The phone can take a long time to charge, about 2.5 to 3 hours.
Its battery backup is average. The 3,000 mAh battery barely lasted a whole day on a single charge. The Canvas Infinity Pro features a 3000 mAh battery which Micromax claims can offer 200 hrs standby time.
The Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro scores well with its design and display. However, it comes with mediocre internals, which shows while using the phone. The performance struggles and often ends up slowing. The battery is not adequate and can only run a day with light use.
The Infinity Pro comes with decent cameras, though low-light images struggle. However, if you just want a decent selfie-phone, this is a well-designed smartphone and will satisfy your desires.
