Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 with Snapdragon 410, 2GB RAM and 5.1mm Thickness Launched at Rs.17,999

Much like we had expected, Microsoft launched its next flagship smartphone, the Canvas Sliver 5. Claiming to be the world’s slimmest smartphone, the Canvas Sliver 5 houses mediocre specs in superiorly thin chassis, for a best buy price of Rs.17,999 (~$280).


The Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 isn’t technically the slimmest smartphone, as we have seen phones smiler than 5mm in the past, but Micromax claims that they are misleading and not really that slim all over. At 97 grams, the Sliver 5 is also claimed to be the lightest smartphone in the world, making it the world’s slimmest and lightest 4G smartphone – something we reserve our judgment on.

The Canvas Sliver 5 is made from aircraft grade aluminum. It comes with Dirac HD sound and NXP Smart Power Amplifier providing louder sound and deeper bass. The 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen has HD (720p) resolution and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen over it. The phone is powered by the 64-bit 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, paired with 2GB DDR3 RAM.

Micromax Canvas Sliver 3 Specs

  • 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core 64-bit processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB ROM
  • 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • 5.1mm thickness; 97g weight
  • 8MP Sony IMX 219 rear camera; 5MP front camera
  • 2000mAh battery
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Dirac HD sound and NXP smart amplifier
  • 4G LTE support

Micromax has managed to put the 8MP Sony IMX 219 lens without having a bump on that thin chassis. The Canvas Sliver 5 comes with a 2000 mAH high density Lithium Polymer battery and an intelligently optimized User Interface which Micromax claims to save over 30% battery.

At Rs.17,999, the Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 looks pricey. But then, it’s not your run-of-the-mill smartphone with insignificant design. Micromax is banking on the design to push the sales. The Canvas Sliver 5 will take on the likes of Gionee Elife S7 (which surprised us a great deal) and will have its task cut out to come out a winner. We shall be back with our initial impressions and full review soon.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
