After a very long time Micromax launched a handset that seems worth buying, the Micromax Canvas Infinity with wide screen, quad core powered, 16MP front, 13MP back camera and more. But the good part is the price that makes it more tempting, so how good is this handset, read the review to know more.
With the launch of Micromax Canvas Infinity, the company is back in the mobile race. The price is good, features are good and in general the screen / build have already created a lot of interest and this review will help you know the actual performance in real world.
This is Snapdragon 425 quad core powered, not that powerful when it comes to gaming but for normal operations this is good enough. The main highlight of Infinity is the 5.7 inch screen, that does not look like as per the size and the 18:9 aspect ratio completely separates it when compared with other handsets.
The Canvas Infinity is impressive in all areas, except when it comes to high end gaming.

Micromax Canvas Infinity Gaming Review
Not really good for hard core gaming users. I played Modern Combat 5 game and that clearly lagged. The next game Asphalt 8 was playable in High quality mode but not that smooth, you will get better experience is medium quality mode.

Front Camera : 16MP, f/2.0, front flash

The camera on the Micromax Canvas Infinity is above average, selfie shots are amazing, especially when using the portrait mode. This portrait mode works for front camera as well as for rear camera. It provides real time bokeh effects, however for this to work you need a face / faces it does not work on object. Check the video review to know more.
There is a new feature called camera roll that shows the recently shot images in the camera app itself, check image below and video to know more.
Rear camera can shoot FHD videos and the quality is pretty good. Night shots turned out really good in HDR and Night mode.

Micromax made a very good comeback by launching the Micromax Canvas Infinity handset, this is really a good looking unique handset that gives a premium feel. Display is unique and front camera does an impressive job. Since this is quad core, high end games will lag. Not really for hardcore gaming users but for normal users this is a very good option.
