- 4.5-inch display (resolution unknown)
- 1 GHz quad core Mediatek MT6735M processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB storage (expandable)
- 5MP rear camera

The Canvas four has a 4.5 inches IPS LCD display screen with only 480×854 pixels resolution. They have not made any changes to the resolution since the first Fire series handset which is quite disappointing as with an increase in price and other additions the resolution must have been looked into. The resolution is average. There are no dedicated home button, back button and apps button seen on the bezel, instead they are given as soft keys.
Micromax Canvas 4G coming with 8MP primary camera. The camera in Micromax has always been quite exquisite. Therefore, the 8MP primary camera will suffice for regular use to capture beautiful shots. It comes with an LED flash and autofocus options. The secondary camera is 2MP. Both of which are upgraded from the previous model. The Fire 2 featured only a 5MP primary camera and 0.3 MP secondary camera. This upgrade was much needed with the world gearing towards selfie craze and addiction.
The design is sleek in a metal body finish with no removable battery. The phone holds the same design as the Fire 2. The unnecessary bezel space is cut off and there is only a thin line that borders both the edges. It quite looks like a bad imitation of the Apple iPhone 6 design. Nevertheless, this preferred by many new users just for this reason. They are of the same size. In terms of looks, it is average and maybe it is because Micromax has been implanting the same design for most of its handsets these days. There is not much difference at all.
There is ample internal memory given, 8 GB. Most of the handsets in this price range offer lower than 4GB internal space. The 8GB space is one selling point for this handset. The storage is further expandable up to 32GB. The RAM is 1GB which is works amazingly when coupled with the 1.3GHz processor to provide an above average performance.
The Canvas Fire 4 works on a 1.3 GHz Quad-Core processor which is just enough to keep this device running without any lags. There is no mistaking the processor here.
The Canvas Fire 4 operates on the Android version 5.0 (Lollipop). Lollipop version of Android is still the most advanced version of Android. Micromax has not made many modifications to the Android user interface on this device which comes as a surprise as recently Micromax has started modifying the Android interface.
Battery Backup Life
The handset utilizes a 2000 mAh Li-ion battery which provides a standby time of 300 hours and talk time of 7 hours. The battery is not the strongest point of this phone. They could have coupled the device with a 2500 mAh battery which would have worked perfectly for the features it holds. Micromax could have done it better, battery-wise.
