Micromax Canvas 5 Launched at Rs 11,999; Features 3GB RAM and a 5.2-inch FHD Display

Micromax has pulled the wraps off its latest flagship, the Canvas 5 after a gap of two years. Unlike the previous flagships, the Canvas 5 comes shrouded in leather finish along with metal chassis which imparst a much needed elegant look to the device. The design lines look well balanced and it seems that Micromax has ensured there is no cutting the corners when it comes to design elements.


The Micromax Canvas 5 is fitted with a 5.2-Inch FHD display with 2.5D curved screen and thinned out bezels. The device draws its power from a octa-core 64-bit MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz and paired with a 3GB of RAM, making it the first Micromax device to come with 3GB of RAM.

On the storage front the Canvas 5 offers 16GB of internal storage which is further expandable up to 64GB, thanks to the microSD card slot. The imaging department is taken care of by a 13-Megapixel primary camera with Samsung 3M2 sensor with phase detection and auto-focus. The phone runs on Android 5.1 and is backed up by a 2,900mAh battery pack which according to the company offers 10 hours of talktime and 275 hours of standby.

Micromax Canvas 5 heralds with the usual array of connectivity features including dual SIM and 4G LTE support and will be available in Space Grey and Tan Brown color options. The flagship is priced at Rs 11,999 and is bundled with a double data offer exclusively for Airtel 4G customers for a period of 3 months.

Micromax Canvas 5 will go loggerheads with other devices in its price range which includes the likes of Xiaomi Mi 4i and Moto G3, not to mention the slew of other budget phones in the market. Micromax has been focussing a lot on the niche market, like the selfie phones and it has not come up with a premium, well performing handset for quite a while. That being said the Canvas 5 will fit the bill for people looking out to buy an all round smartphone at an affordable price without really compromising on the looks at least.

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 …
