The Micromax Canvas Nitro is the best Micromax smartphone available in the market today. Apart from logging excellent performance in different tests, the Canvas Nitro also shines in the battery life department. We also liked the camera performance and the phone is very well built for its price range top smartphone option for anyone looking for a balanced mix of features and performance, willing to try out a relatively new brand. One of the key advantages with the Alcatel phone is the 5-inch 1080 pixel screen well supported by 2 GB of RAM and Octa core processor. The 15,000 price range has become very competitive with phones like the New Moto G, Xiaomi Mi 3 and Asus Zen fone 5 and to challenge these phones, Micromax has launched the canvas Nitro and yes it hits the mark. It has a Note 3 like back panel which feels premium. It runs on the 1.7 GHz Octa Core processor and 2 GB RAM and has very good performance. It has 720 x 1280 pixels good HD screen and decent 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras. It also has a good battery life with 2500 mAh battery and it also has expandable storage option. So, in this range you have got two great choices from Micromax, the Canvas Gold offering better specs and bigger screens and the Nitro with 5 inches screen and a little low price, both can be very good choice.

  3. Hey Soumyakanti,

    Am planning on a new phone and also my first one, am struck between MotoG gen2 & Asus ZenPone5. All the Zen buzz wants me to buy it, but with MotoG2 all set for Lollipop upgrades, the Zenfone5 lags at max wit Kitkat. Is it still fine with the Z5?

    Any idea on which Lumia would compete good with these 2?

    Thank You

    • Hey Sudarsan,
      I will suggest you to go for Asus Zenphone 5.
      For Windows device Nokia Lumia 730 is good to go 🙂
