As we have time and again discussed, the modern day markets are too feature specific, and when it comes to slimming down the phones, a large number of players in the markets have jeopardized with the battery performance to slim down the phones.
There was an era where ‘slim phones’ had suddenly become a ‘thing’, and every company shifted towards thinness.
However, it must be noted that it was a trend started off by Apple, for whom the battery has never been a concern, as Apple users are used to a low lasting battery life.
However, when it comes to the ordinary user, who does not shell out hundreds of dollars for ‘looks’, battery life has been a critical factor, and several companies have been messing around with the battery life.
Micromax has been, off late, one of the first few brands to bring back better batteries! The company has recently released the Canvas Juice 3 – which has been one of the best phones when battery life is concerned, as the phone comes packed in with a 4,000 mAh battery!
The Canvas Juice 3 smartphone is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device which runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box. It comes with a 5-inch (720×1280 pixels) HD IPS display sporting Corning Gorilla Glass 3. An e-commerce website, Indiatimes, claims that the handset features a 5.5-inch display; though the retail box claims it just a 5-inch screen.
The smartphone is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek (6580) processor coupled with 2GB of RAM.
It comes with 8GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB).
It sports an 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with LED flash, while there is a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera. On the connectivity front, the Micromax Canvas Juice 3 includes 3G, Wi-Fi, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, and Bluetooth options.
It features sensors such as accelerometer, magnetometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor. The Canvas Juice 3 is said to offer a talk time of up to 14 hours and up to 514 hours of standby time.
With such a massive battery, one can’t but help and be impressed. The ‘Juice’ series of phones from the Micromax canvas devices have typically always offered a good battery life.
What are your opinions on the same – could we ever get a ‘perfect’ smartphone at a low budget price? Or will we always have to compromise at something. If yes, what is it that you are willing to compromise at?
