Let's have a look at the advantages-disadvantage/pros-cons of Micromax Canvas (C1),

Cons/Disadvantages of Micromax Canvas 1:

Display: In the bright sunlight, its display performance/ visibility is not particularly praiseworthy. If you use the phone in the bright sunlight, then you would need to set the phone's brightness level to the maximum.
Fingerprint Sensor: Lack of this feature, Micromax C 1 has no Fingerprint sensor.
Battery: Micromax C1 has a 2500mAh removable battery. We all want a high capacity mobile battery, everyone wants a battery of at least 3000mAh. But in between the budget of Rs 6000-7000, with all these qualities, a battery of 2500mAh, I do not think this budget can get more. A Smartphone with a 2500mAh battery it is sufficient in the budget of Rs 6000-7000. And which the company claims is strong and can last for up to 7 hours (Talktime). So this one is not really a major disadvantage and its battery backup is really good.

Micromax C1 Review by A Happy Customer:

I’m using Micromax C1 from past 3 months, and I completely satisfy and happy with this phone. Perfect design, decent performance (games especially), new Android Nougat, smoother touch, powerful display, never get out of RAM and storage, superb 4G working for both browsing and video calling, good cameras both with flash enabled and HD video recording. And these all brilliant features and qualities in a price of Rs 6000-7000, it's amazing.

Right now, I have 76 Apps installed on my Micromax Canvas 1. And still, it is performing like a champ. No hanging/lagging, everything is working well and smoothly. Even the games are behaving well. Average 1.3 GB memory is being used of 2 GB (1.9 MB usable) memory. And it goes to 0.9 (sometimes 0.8) when I clean or speed up  the phone using the default apps.

So now I honestly suggest you, feel free to go for Micromax C 1.

Buy Micromax Canvas 1 from,              

Micromax C1 easily beats any other mobile phone in this price range. Micromax team is really working hard on its design and performance.
