In our review of Micromax Canvas 5, we said the company has certainly upped its game by offering a stylish look and premium features like Full HD screen and 3GB RAM in this budget phone. We observed the design is the best feature of this phone. The faux leather rear panel adds a subtle sense of style, but it seems with the new model Micromax wants to offer a wooden back panel to add a new look to this phone.
