From Spreadtrum the Canvas Spark 3 uses a processor, this is a lesser known Chinese chip design outfit. This Canvas is fairly coming with four ARM Cortex-A7 CPU cores which will run at 1.3GHz and the Mali 400MP2 GPU. The phone features to handle two Micro-SIMs but it will not support 4G.Micromax canvas spark 3 Charging Slot

There is RAM of 1GB and 8GB of storage. However, the usable space of phone reports only 4.76 GB because the remaining bits are already occupied by system files.
For all the benchmarking files and apps which did not have enough space this is the first phone that we have reviewed after a long time.

For sure you will need a microSD card and a little more disappointment is that it will support only up to 32 GB.

This is the 5.5-inch screen smartphone with resolution of 720/1280, the primary camera has a sensor of 8-megapixel and front camera of 5-megapixel. However, with rear camera the video recording only goes up to 720p and with the front camera it will go up to 480p.

You will get Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n. the removable battery has a capacity of 2500mAh.Micromax canvas spark 3 Battery


Choices of software by Micromax’s are a bit confusing because the company is launching for the first time Android with the most simplistic language.

You will see 7 giant icons for basic functions when you boot it up the phone runs Android 5. You are taken back to the leftmost home screen each time you exit an app. Micromax has preloaded a lot of software. You will also get many apps like OLX, Snapdeal, Quickr, Opera mini, Clean master, CM Locker, Amazon app, Lxigo Cabs, Hike Scandid Gaana and many more.Micromax canvas spark 3 Body


  • First of all, popping out of an app can sometimes take few seconds.
  • Even in basic task a lot of apps struggle to function even in the basic task
  • The phone’s display has pretty low quality
  • Dark scenes in videos somehow looks artificial
  • The built-in speaker are surprisingly geets loud.
  • Battery life was fairly decent
  • The phone’s camera is not quite bad

If you want some basics in the smart Android phone with really low cost, then just go for the Micromax Canvas Spark 3.
