General News Micromax Canvas 5 vs Xiaomi Mi 4i vs Motorola Moto G (third-gen) vs Xolo Black 1X

Micromax today launched the Canvas 5 in India. Priced at Rs 11,999, the smartphone will face competition from the likes of the Xiaomi Mi 4iMotorola Moto G (third-gen), and the Xolo Black 1X among others. We pit the Canvas 5 against the aforementioned smartphones in a comparison to see how it fares.

Price: The Xolo Black 1X is the most affordable in this comparison, priced at Rs 9,999, while the Moto G and the Mi 4i are placed on the other end of the spectrum, priced at Rs 12,999. The Canvas 5 is placed in the middle with a price tag of Rs 11,999. Micromax’s new smartphone goes on sale via online and offline channels.

Specifications and features: Barring the Moto G, the rest flaunt a full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display. They are more or less similarly sized as well, with only the Canvas 5 featuring a slightly bigger 5.2-inch screen.

Under the hood, the Canvas 5 and the Black 1X are powered by a 64-bit MediaTek octa-core processor. The Mi 4i is powered by a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, while the Moto G is powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor. The Canvas 5 and Black 1X feature 3GB of RAM each, while the Moto G and Black 1X feature 2GB of RAM each.

On the storage front, the Black 1X leads the way with 32GB storage, which can be further expanded using a microSD card. The rest offer 16GB internal storage, the Mi 4i however doesn’t offer an option to expand it.

On paper, all the smartphones in this comparison feature the same set of cameras – 13-megapixel at the back, and a 5-megapixel snapper up front. Megapixel count however doesn’t guarantee the same level of performance, and we will reserve our judgment till we have reviewed the devices. One aspect that differentiates the Canvas 5 and the Black 1X from the rest is the presence of a LED flash alongside the selfie camera.

The Mi 4i has the biggest battery in this comparison at 3,120mAh, followed by the 2,900mAh unit on the Canvas 5. The Moto G follows with a 2,470mAh battery, and the Black 1X comes last with a 2,400mAh unit.

The smartphones all feature dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support along with the usual set of connectivity options. On the software front too all run on Android Lollipop. The Moto G will be among the first to get the Marshmallow update, and Micromax too has promised the update for the Canvas 5.

Of note is the nano coating on the Moto G, which keeps the handset safe from an accidental splash of water. This feature isn’t present on any other smartphone in this comparison.

All smartphones then are quite closely matched in terms of their price, specifications and features. With so little differencing them, the Canvas 5 will face stiff competition from these devices.

A detailed comparison table follows.
