Micromax Canvas Turbo A250: First impressions
Micromax announced the launch of Micromax Canvas Turbo smartphone in the market. Canvas Turbo A250 is the first fullHD smartphone from Micromax. The home screen is a futuristic interactive living room where you can’t add widgets or shortcuts. The Micromax Canvas Turbo apps drawer switches the theme to Frank Miller’s 300, with a weird Roman Icon pack that doesn’t match it.
The screen is bright and the hi-res display makes text crisp, but the colors are a bit washed out. Still it has Gorilla Glass. Micromax Canvas Turbo performance was the best of this lot, in regular usage and multi tasking. That said, the Aqua i7 too can’t keep up with HD games.
The camera shoots images that are saturated and washed out, with lots of blooming around light sources, and unusable in the low light. You’ll get 13-14 hours of battery on a single charge. The 32 GB memory should take care of all your needs, despite lacking a microSD slot. The Aqua 17 has a week antenna and often drops calls or won’t get a signal.
It’s a big plasticcky, heavy handset when compared to its peers. It’s not something you want to see or be seen with, especially with that ugly UI.
The Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 is all about the FullHD display, and unfortunately, that is its downfall in performance and battery life. Your money would be better spent on the Canvas 4, which gives you a better camera, longer battery life,microSD slot and Gonila Glass display.
