With the advent of large screen handsets, every other manufacturer has been trying to push a big screen device. Following the same trend, Micromax India’s popular budget smartphone maker has got a 5.7-inch screen Android smartphone for the public which is known as Canvas Doodle 2. Canvas Doodle was the previous iteration of this series and featured a bug screen too. Taking about the device further we have classified the details in different sections so you can start from the section below.
Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 looks an enlarged Canvas 4 from the front with nearly the same build and design. At the back it has an aluminum finish design with only the upper part removable to insert the SIM cards. We have attached an unboxing video below which gives more insights about the handset build and design.
The 5.7-inch display is just okay being honest. It could have been better. It has an HD display which gives decent results. The color reproduction and brightness levels are average. We found them to be slightly better on the 5-inch screen of the Canvas 4.
Camera on the Canvas Doodle 2 has the capability to click pictures up to 12MP that is 4000х3000 pixels, It comes with a dual LED flash and autofocus feature. The Doodle 2 also has a 5MP front-facing camera. The rear camera can shoot videos up to 1080p@30fps.
Alike every other budget smartphone, Canvas Doodle 2 too features a MediaTek MT6589 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM. It has 16GB internal memory and does not support any kind of expandable storage via external cards. It supports dual SIM standby and is powered by 2600mAh non-removable battery and comes with WiFi/Bluetooth/3G functionality.
Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 runs on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system and has been least customized when compared with the vanilla rom. There are few applications which comes preinstalled Micromax stuff to enhance the user experience.
Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 comes for Rs. 19,990 in India and is available across the country through leading retail outlets and e commerce websites in the country.
Micromax Canvas Doodle 2 is an average device if you ask us. During our testing period we find the device to perform fairly well alike every other MediaTek chipset handset. The primary USP of the device is the stylus which comes with dual tips and the large screen for utilizing that it. For 20k if you don’t find any other handset to fit your needs we can suggest this. The device is not bad but has nothing special about it. 5.7-inch is too big for normal communication needs. The big screen has been made for multimedia content and thats where it excels. We will rate it 3.5/5.
