Currently we can’t say anything about it’s viewing angles or clarity as we haven’t got our hands on it. But we will test it in our full-review.
Canvas Turbo has got a full aluminum body, according to Micromax, “Canvas turbo has been engineered to excel. The 8.6 mm anodized aluminum body keeps your phone secure in a tough aluminum shell. It also doubles up as an antenna and will boost the signal strength.

Micromax Canvas Turbo comes with smart gesture support as similar to Canvas 4. This smart gesture will help you to:
- Answer a call simply by placing the phone on your ear.
- To put your phone on silent during an incoming call, just flip over your phone upside-down.
- To put your active call on speaker, simply flip over the phone.
- To dial a contact, select the person in your contacts list and place the phone on your ear to call.

Micromax Canvas Turbo has got its maximum features from Canvas 4. It also comes with Blow to Unlock feature and as similar to Canvas 4, it comes with popular video and popup browser feature, a smart pause feature which will automatically pause the video if you are not watching it.
One of the new feature in Canvas Turbo is, ‘iFloat‘. Which is a touch button present on-screen all the time and when access will allow users to access the key features of Canvas Turbo.
Canvas Turbo isn’t impressive as I was expecting. But in the matter of design it has got some impressive stuffs. The phone is packed with 16GB of Internal Storage and comes without any option to expand the memory as there is no MicroSD card slot on this phone. So, this is the negative thing about this phone. I can’t suggest this Smartphone to those guys who are having lots of stuffs to store in their Smartphone.
