And in terms of price, its also cheaper than those two smartphones. At launch event we got some time to play with the device and here is our first impression with device after playing 1 hour with device.
Build And Design Of Micromax Canvas Spark :-
In terms of design language, Micromax Canvas Spark seems to flaunts a two tone design, here you will find its back panel of Grey or White in color and there is a metal like frame which runs all across its body which is silver or gold respectively. Although its not a metal, it’s a plastic which give fake look of metal, and does it job very nicely.
