Got 3 replacement for Micromax Canvas 5 in a month and all three are defective.
First one had issue with battery and display
Battery : drains very faster even if its idle
Display goes off automatically and cant get it back - intermittent
Got replacement in 10 days and in second mobile had same display issue in out of box mobile
Got 3rd replacement in which battery is draining very faster and its getting heat even if we speak over 5-10 mins
Still micromax is not ready to provide refund or another model
Pls dont go for this model : its a worst decision which i made and lost 12000 RS
Battery charging is very slow but other specifications very good like screen resolution, camera, ram, memory, touch and phone shape.

Pls advice mmx : instead of launching 3-4 phones in a month at same price range. Launch 1 phone in a month or 2 month but dont keep any drawback in it and provides regular update. Use good quality hardware and camera.

canvas a1, xpress 2, unite 2. Its better to forgot about any update. Micromax prefers to launch new smartphones instead of providing to existing phone. Xpress 2 & unite 2 are good selling phone. Thats the reason micromax provided lollipop update. And canvas a1 is google android one phone. Thats why micromax provided that update.
Even micromax unite 2 4gb model users got lollipop update but its of no use. As after update, move to apps option gone. Camera quality also get down. Mobile also got heated.

However since you have blindly decided to take a wild shoot and touched on this particular subject, let me just hit you with fact a that, wiko has been the second largest selling smartphone brand in France just falling behind Samsung. That is quite commendable considering there are many other 'non chinese' phones out there as well competing and to come out as the better selling phone is something worth noting especially when mmx hasn't been able to achieve it through all these years and am pretty positive that mmx isn't doing really good with its sale outside of india as well. So there's that. Coming to my point, let me put it the easy way. There's a factory in china which makes smartphones and sell it to companies from other countries and when these companies get the phones then they rebrand the phone with their own specific company brand name and sell it in the market. example - canvas knight and wiko highway. both these phones are exactly the same but they are sold to different countries so they ultimately bear different brand name but both hardware and software remains the same. Get the logic? Cheers!!
micromax is slow in providing updates..but they do provides updates..Even an entry level phone like micromax unite 2 has received lollipop update,they have promised it at the launch of the device...But yes it is frustrating..even small defects r left unsolved because they do not sort out the issue with OTA update.

So theres no arguing that you dont know about it(I like to re... moreI know that Wiko also makes in China but it doesn't match the sales of Micromax, you can see its fan following etc. from GSMArena itself, it barely has people visiting it, check for it on any other site too. It does boast itself as France or whatever place's No.1 Seller, it doesn't have proper sales.

I am following this page from quite some time. Some of my friends saying MMX is a Chinese company. Its copying patterns from some other brand. But for your kind information MMX is a Indian company headquartered in Gurgaon. The CEO is Vineet Taneja an Indian. Ya its true that MMX making there spare parts and assembling them in China. There is a reason for that . Low labor cost. And this is the only reason forcing maximum reputed companies to make their spare parts in China. It makes them profitable and tell me who don't want profit. Its different that after making spare parts they are assembling them at there home ground. That is all about the story. In MMX case they are assembling mobiles there itself. But recently they started assembling in India. For more you can add MMX is the 2nd largest Mobile Vendor in India following Samsung. U can take a example of Samsung. Previously there was no assembling house in India. Now they established their farm here in India at Bangalore. U can check Bangalore production like 'On' series. Mentioned made in India. That means not Samsung is a Indian company. As the same Oppo, Meizu, Gionee, Lenovo and some other brands planning to make set their footprint here at India. So we can't call them Indian Companies. Don't be hesitate that MMX is a Chinese Company. It is purely Indian Company. After this comment please don't call me MMX agent or some thing like that.
Ha ha ha........... I just shared the truth.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2016I'd rather opt for lenovo k4 note for 12k since it offers better features compared to canvas 5K4 is a copy of Canvas 5 just compare the specifications
Flagship device 3 months down but still no update. Micromax plz give regular updates for all your device......And see the difference.
Battery draining issue is still there and for charging it takes 3hours 15 mins...
Plz solve the issue is ur next update and give it very fast also marshmallow update is pending.....
Good thing about micromax is that it doesn't lag but the battery just kills it
