The Canvas Evok flaunts a neat and smart design, which is practical and also looks pretty sturdy. It comes it black color and gets a textured back panel for better grip and comfortable handling. However, Micromax has not given the Canvas Evok the much in trend metallic built which is a big setback as there are many capable budget phones in the market that boast of premium metal construction. The Canvas Evok thus gets a regular plastic built which looks otherwise well built.
Camera is a huge deciding factor when it comes to choosing a new smartphone model. Even the first time phone users who form a chunk of the budget smartphone market would want to have good camera specs although they might not be very conscious about the other hardware specs performance of the smartphone.
