Earlier today, Micromax launched its latest flagship called the Canvas Sliver 5. The Indian smartphone vendor touts it to be the slimmest and lightest smartphone in the world. With a slightly heavy price tag of Rs 17,999, the Canvas Sliver 5 will be up against the likes of the Xiaomi Mi 4 and the OnePlus One.

The Canvas Sliver 5 has been priced at Rs 17,999, and will go on sale towards the end of this month. The OnePlus One 16GB is the most expensive of the lot with a price tag of Rs 18,998. The Mi 4 16GB, on the other hand, got a price cut last night and it retailing at an enticing Rs 14,999.

Dimensions and Weight

In this department, there is but one clear winner and that is Micromax s latest flagship. It boasts a thickness of only 5.1mm, and is fully flat without any bumps. In comparison, the other two smartphones are quite thick at 8.9mm each.

It s a similar scenario where the weight is concerned with the Canvas Sliver 5 weighing only 97 grams, which is quite an impressive feat. In comparison, the Mi 4 weighs 149 grams, while the One is even heavier at 162 grams.

Display

All three smartphones feature displays of different sizes 4.8-inch on the Canvas Sliver 5, 5-inch on the Mi 4 and 5.5-inch on the One. In terms of resolutions though, Micromax s handset lags supporting 720 pixels, whereas the other two flaunt full HD (1920×1080 pixels) displays.

The screens on Micromax and OnePlus smartphones are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which makes them relatively scratch and shatterproof.

Processor

The Mi 4 and the OnePlus One are both considerably powerful with a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor under the hood. The Canvas Sliver 5, on the other hand, is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core chipset with 64-bit capabilities.

The processors on the former are paired with 3GB of RAM, while the one on the Canvas Sliver is paired with 2GB of RAM.

Storage

The three smartphones have fixed memory, or in other words, there is no microSD card slot to expand the internal memory. But where the Mi 4 and OnePlus offer two storage variants 16GB and 64GB, the Canvas Sliver 5 only comes in a 16GB storage variant.

Cameras

The Canvas Sliver 5 features a combination of 13-megapixel snapper at the back, and a 5-megapixel snapper up front. The cameras are bundled with quite a few features that will make clicking photos a breeze. The Mi 4 features a combination of 13-megapixel camera and an 8-megapixel camera up front, while the One features a 13-megapixel snapper at the back, coupled with a 5-megapixel snapper up front.

While on paper, the Xiaomi Mi 4 seems to boast the best set of cameras, just the megapixel count is never enough. We will reserve our judgment on which camera is best, till we have reviewed the Canvas Sliver 5.

Battery

On paper, the Canvas Sliver 5 has the smallest battery pack of the lot 2,000mAh. It quite small when you compare the 3,080mAh battery on the Mi 4 and the 3,100mAh battery on the One. Micromax however claims that the 2,000mAh battery is good enough to survive the day even on heavy usage. It claims to offer up to 8 hours of talktime and up to 345 hours on standby mode.

Connectivity

None of the smartphones here feature two SIM card slots. But where the Canvas Sliver 5 and the One come with LTE support, the Mi 4 has to make do with only 3G support.

Software

The Canvas Sliver 5 runs on an almost-stock Android Lollipop out-of-the-box. The Mi 4 runs on Android KitKat-based MI UI 6, while the OnePlus One runs on Android Lollipop-base Cyanogen OS 12.

While the new Canvas Sliver 5 boasts an impressive design with 5.1mm thickness and 97 grams, Micromax seems to have got the pricing bit wrong. The Xiaomi Mi 4 16GB with its recent price slash and the OnePlus One 16GB offer much more at almost similar prices and make for a much better choice.

We however are reserving our final judgment till we have reviewed the Canvas Sliver 5. In the meantime, a detailed comparison table follows.
