Anonymous, 26 Jan 2014So, this time they tried to copy Sony/Apple design? Do something original Micromax!First of all be little intelligent. Just because mmx a350 is rectangular and thin and resembles slightly iphone doesn't mean they copied it. These are normal phone designs.
phonefollower, 27 Jan 2014I have been following MMX for quite sometime.. really bad to announce and launch these phones... moreThink on the brighter side. Since this is going to be the most powerful phone in the world they want to test try it in Russia. Gain feedback and improve it for us Indians. Since Micromax has gained popularity in India, they wont do something like this until there's a reason.

really bad to announce and launch these phones in Outside India.. Being an Indian company, its the company's duty to satisy the country's expectation..
Atleast an announcement in India few hours before in Russia, would be patriotic..
Bad MMX...many of them feel this!
I am waiting for canvas knight from 2 months and mmx launch it in rusia anyway i love this phone pls launch fast in india i want to buy
nitesh, 26 Jan 2014Appreciate your review in this matter and your review are absolutely correct, as the phone is ... moreI support this. With battery below 3000, it is strictly no go!!! Also a BSI camera which is optimizsed and tested under various indoor and outdoor lighting conditions with and without flash.
Loyal Micromax User, 26 Jan 2014If Micromax wants to become a big player, they need serious changes. First, the fist like &quo... moreAppreciate your review in this matter and your review are absolutely correct, as the phone is of latest version then must be unbeatable.
The specification you mentioned are available in any phone then everyone will buy it instead of thinking over it. I have a110 and it was great but as we need more games and more storage place, old 2GBRAM and 1.7Ghz processor is great but battery turns out a major concern in this regard, at least 3000 mah would have work great and 2350 is not good at all. Its better to switch to any other company.
Micromax Knight look great. LAVA and Gionee are the competitors to the same design.
If Micromax wants to become a big player, they need serious changes. First, the fist like "M" made up of steel on the back of the phone looks plain ugly and makes the phone look ugly from the back. Camera placement in the Canvas Knight is awkward. Camera should be placed either on the right corner or on the middle of the phone. Canvas Knight comes with 32 GB Internal memory with no expandable memory slot which itself is a big disappointment especially for people who likes to play games on their phones. An expansion slot which would support upto 64 GB SD card would've been appreciated by many. Canvas Knight is having either 1.7 GHz Cortex-A7 Octa core CPU with 2 GB RAM and 1080p full HD resolution and the tricky part is that battery is only around 2300 mAh capacity and non removable, another disappointment. Micromax is heading in the wrong direction. Canvas HD was a huge hit for Micromax and after Canvas HD, no Micromax flagship phone was as hit. Expandable memory and removable battery are two things that made Samsung a big player in the Android space. Micromax should correct the wrong before it's too late.
1. Do not stick that fist like "M" made up of steel on the back of the phone as it just makes the phone look ugly from the back. Rather, engrave your brand name on the bottom of the back and only one brand name on each phone.
2. Camera placement should be in the right place, either on the right corner or on the middle of the back and if possible, please provide a lens cover. One more thing here, please don't overwrite near the camera. If there's 16 MP camera, just write "16 MP."
3. The picture of Canvas Knight in this article sports unusual icons which looks like some rip off of Chinese phones. Remember, the better looking the icons, the more attractive the phone looks. So, I suggest to use pure Android or if possible, design a better UI with good looking icons.
4. With phones getting octa core processors, full HD displays, powerful GPUs, bigger screen, etc., the battery life remains an issue if the battery isn't of higher capacity. Look at Canvas Knight, it's having beefed-up hardware and the battery is just 2300 mAh. This is one of a huge disappointment. At least, 3500 mAh battery is necessary. Canvas Knight is having non-removable battery which is another disappointment if the battery is done and you need to change the battery. Removable battery is the way to go.
5. 32 GB of Internal memory maybe enough for many but those who like to install every latest games and apps, it's too less. So, provide an expandable memory slot in flagship phones.
6. 5" display is the standard for flagship, so Micromax stick to 5" display. If you want to offer a mini or phablet version of your flagship, release two more phones with same hardware as the flagship with different screen size, like what Sony did with Xperia Z1 and Z1 compact.
There I mentioned the need for change at Micromax.
Create a phone with the below mentioned specifications:
Quad band 2G, 3G and LTE, 5" display with full HD resolution, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 2 GHz Octa core processor, probably MediaTek, 11 mm thickness with a removable battery of 4000 mAh capacity, 16/32 GB Internal memory with Micro SD card slot support upto 64 GB, Dual SIM with Dual Active or Dual Standby, 16 MP camera of good quality with dual LED flash, 2 MP front facing camera of good quality, pure Android OS like it is in Canvas HD, 2 GB RAM DDR3, all major sensors, optimized OS and capacitive touch keys, no fist like "M" sign on the back, Dual speakers. If Micromax ever comes up with a phone with above mentioned specs then I'm definitely sure that it will be a huge hit like Canvas HD.
AnonD-20358, 26 Jan 2014And they both come bundled with pathetic after sales support ;-) and no OS updates whatsover l... moreAre you trolling? MMX does provide OS updates and is also preparing 4.4 Kitkat even for the devices which are more than an year old.
MMX service is fairly good in large cities.
So, this time they tried to copy Sony/Apple design?
Do something original Micromax!
