The Micromax A300 Canvas Gold was in the news in the first week of June and now the Canvas Gold is available for Rs. 23,999. The A300 runs on Android KitKat out of the box and is powered by 2GHz MediaTek Octa core processor.

The Canvas Gold A300 houses the MediaTek octa core processor (MT6592 cortex A7) @ 2GHz with Mali 450 GPU. Android 4.4.2 runs the show with 2GB RAM, 32GB storage of which 25GB is available for users and 1GB assigned for app installation. There is no external card support.

The Canvas Gold comes with an over 5 inch screen; 5.5 inch to be precise. The screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels. There is a 16MP auto focus camera with LED flash and another camera on the front with a 5MP resolution. The handset can play and record full HD videos. Rear camera is using the Sony sensor.

Key features are 3G (21Mbps), 2G (GPRS / EDGE class 12), Wi-Fi (b/g/n) with hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS with A-GPS support. Micromax A300 is a dual SIM handset that gets power from a 2300 mAh Li-po battery. The estimated talk-time is up to 8 hours and browsing time is up to 4 hours.

As the name says the A300 has got the goldenness look, but considering the specifications the price is too high, especially when the Octa core Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ is available for Rs. 17,000. The Gionee Elife E7 is a better option than this. No doubt a 5.5 inch screen, 32GB storage and 16MP camera resolution is the key highlight but the price is still too high.

Micromax Canvas Gold A300 now listed on Infibeam for Rs. 23,999.
