The release of Micromax Canvas Knight A350 handset brings the company into the high-end smartphone segment, but available at a reasonable price. The handset features great design and aesthetics.
In comparison today, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 handset is a unique handset. It comprises of a medium range spec sheet, but the appearance of the handset makes the buyer assume it to be a beast of a smartphone. The massive 5.8-inch display is the stand out feature of the handset, but comes with a lower resolution. In addition, the smartphones hardware does not appear impressive as well.

The 16MP camera from OmniVision, accompanied with M8 lens from Largan, enables the user to capture impressive photographs, both indoors and outdoors. The camera offers quick focus speed with good quality photos, especially under indoor lighting. The handset offers the user additional features such as 3D Panorama, Remove Object and GIF animation, which work pretty well.

The user facing 8MP camera produces decent pictures and is good for selfies and video calls, limited to 720p only.

The camera comes equipped with simple and clean UI, making it user friendly and rich in features. The built-in shooting modes and filters, inclusive of Panorama, Burst Shot and Beauty Face are great. However, the camera lacks night mode and HDR, which is a disappointment.
