    Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 Review

    Micromax is a top manufacturer in India. There are many successful models that Micromax has already sold and now they came up with Micromax Canvas Doodle 4. The Canvas series of Micromax is one of the most popular with good features and budget price. The device cost around Rs.9000 approx. This would be a first budget phone that would give you 6 inch IPS screen that is hard to find anywhere else. Competing directly other phablet and high end models.

    Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 has decent features. It would be the biggest screen size phone but after checking out all the stuff we found that this model still falls in the mid-range price. Micromax tried to introduce a 6inch IPS display to sellers with budget price that is amazing initiative. The maximum size under Phablet size you can find is around 5.5inch.


    Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 Q391 Highlights:

    • Android 5.0 Lollipop OS
    • Dual SIM
    • 6 Inch IPS qHD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
    • 960 x 540 pixels resolution
    • 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582M processor
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 8GB internal memory, expandable upto 32GB using microSD card.
    • 8 Megapixel rear camera with LED flash
    • 2 Megapixel front-facing camera
    • 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS
    • 3000mAh battery


    Design:

    Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 is a big size phone. It has a 6inch IPS display on the front that has an extra layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is quite a sleek phone. The device has as capacity buttons at the bottom and a 2MP camera on the front. The power and volume key is on the right side. At the bottom side lies a Micro USB port and an audio jack on the top side. The back cover is removable. It has a 13MP camera on the back with led flash. The cover is removable and battery is not. Sim and SD card slot lies at the back.


    The phone has a sleek curved model. It has as smooth touch response due to a big screen size. The 6inch displays makes the device really large. It can be an ideal budget alternative to the big iPhone Plus series. For those who do want to spend much on bigger screen size can go with this budget alternative. 5.5inch is the max phablet size that we can see commonly. Bug having a 6inch phone makes it bigger. Operating the phone with single hand is not easy and it can be slippery due to glossy finish on the back cover.


    Display:

    For a phablet the screen size matters a lot. Small screen is lot more easily to operate and I had seen people are comfortable to use a 5.5inch screen. Micromax does not really fear innovation. They are bold enough to test new methods of attracting buyers.

    Recently Samsung has released two budget models that have 5 and 5.5 inch screen size. And above that Micromax came out with 6 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen. This screen offers you upto 16M colors and provides you a bit lower resolution. The max resolution is 960x540 @W 245 ppi. And above that Corning Gorilla Glass 3 helps the screen to avoid scratches.

    Camera:

    Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 is bit lower on camera. We had seen recently Lenovo K3 Note that gives dual 13MP and 5MP camera with .5inch screen size. Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 offers an 8MP back camera with autofocus and led flash. And it has only a 2MP camera on the front side. It is not ideal for taking selfies. The back camera as it is a 8MP camera is bit average and photos are fine if you are clicking it in light. On dark pictures get darker.

    Performance:

    For a 6inch screen the device requires to have a better hardware so that it does not lag or freeze when you are running multiple apps or games. The device is powered by Mediatek MT6582M chipset. This gives you a 1.3Ghz Quad Core CPU and only 1GB RAM. And for graphics it has as Mali-400MP2 gpu. The device is not so good when it comes to multi-tasking. Today if we talk about 2GB and above that Android 5.5 Lollipop OS then it gets a bit slower in output. It won’t work well if you run too many apps. It has 8GB Internal storage.

    Battery Life:

    Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 runs on 3000 mAH battery. It is a fixed battery. For a big size screen large battery is must or else the phone cannot perform well. If you play games and watch videos the battery drains a bit faster. But if you are using the phone with optimized settings then it will surely perform fine. I had used the device with wifi and3G one and able to get around 8hrs of output if I do not push much apps and games.

    Conclusion:

    Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 cost around Rs.9500 approx depending on the seller. You might also get this at a discounted price where you might get around Rs.9000. Check the same properly before buying. It is a good phone for those who want a 6inch size device and does not require much in the camera and performance. Because we are already having a lot of competitive models in the market that might have small screen but are more powerful.
