The device is available only through Flipkart as of now, but it will soon start selling from various online and offline retailers in the country. The Canvas Mega E353 is an affordable phablet, and is one of 11 smartphone offerings from the company which have screen sizes of 5.5-inch or above.

The Micromax Canvas Mega E353, as the name suggests, is a large device with a large 5.5-inch IPS LCD display and a resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop even though the operating system is more than an year old. The company could have easily managed shipping the device with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but it clearly chose not to. There’s a 13-megapixel camera on its back, and a 5-megapixel camera sensor on the front. It’s a dual-SIM smartphone, but lacks 4G LTE, and comes with a 2,820 mAh battery.
We don’t think that the Canvas Mega is worth recommending to anyone, especially since there are a lot of worthy alternatives in the market such as the Lenovo K3 Note, the Xiaomi Mi 4i, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, the Meizu m2 note, and the company’s own YU Yureka.
