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.

Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO.

What will happen to influencer marketing if Instagram ‘Likes’ go away?

In April, app researcher Jane Manchun Wong discovered Instagram was testing removing “Like” counts on posts. At the time, an Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch it was not a public test, but an internal prototype and that the company was “exploring” new ways to reduce pressure on Instagram.The possibility that Instagram – a primary platform for influencer marketing – may potentially eliminate “Likes” could impact the influencer community, causing brands to question whether or not an influencer has enough sway to contribute to the brand’s marketing efforts.
