Micromax Canvas A1

Price: Rs 6,599

Specs: 4.5-inch display; 5MP camera;1.3GHz quad-core processor; 1GB RAM; 4GB internal storage

I have always been apprehensive about the built quality of Micromax smartphones.

But Canvas A1 has changed my perception. A smartphone built on Google's Android One, the Canvas A1 has got a 4.5-inch touch display with 480 x 854 pixel resolution.

The screen is responsive and the text and images appear sharp and crisp. The phone runs on stock Android UI . The phone packs in a 1.3-GHz MediaTek quad-core SOC and is paired with 1GB of RA M. It runs on Android v4.4.4 (KitKat) and will get the Lollipop upgrade when released.

These hardware specifications are good enough for browsing the web, launching apps or even downloading them. The phone does handle basic gaming with ease, without heating.

It has 1,700-mAh battery that is good enough to last a day and a half on a single charge.

Bag it or junk it: The best of the Android One lot
