The Micromax Canvas Ego is equipped with a 4.7inch qHD Capacitive Touchscreen Display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels at 234 ppi pixel density. Talking about the Build quality of the device the phone is fairly built. On the front of the device we have Couple of Sensors at the top then we have the 4.7inch qHD display and at the bottom we have 3 capacitive touch buttons. On the back we have the 8 MP camera and the Speaker grill at the bottom. Power button is placed on the right, volume rockers on the left and 3.5mm audio jack / micro USB port are placed on the top side. The handset feels good and comfortable to hold. The device is 9mm thick and weighs about 154grams with the battery packed in.

The Sound of the device is not as Crisp as of the Micromax Canvas 4 but of a fairly decent quality. The A113 is packed with an 8MP of rear camera with auto-focus and a led flash. The Phone is Capable of doing 720p (1280x720pixels) of video recording at 30fps. The video recorded in 720p mode is not at all impressive.

The Phone has an internal storage of 4GB which can be expandable up to 32GB with the help of Micro-SD. The A113 runs on an outdated android version 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). Hoping to get an updated version of android by Micromax. This fella is backed by a 2000-mAh Battery which will last up to 6hrs of 2g talk time.
So, my final verdict to the canvas Ego:
A pretty solid performer at the price range. The phone has a good 4.7inch display impressive for watching movie and playing Games. The phone also response good in gaming although it as Adreno 203 GPU. But the phone cannot play Full Hd video which may be disappointing to many users.
The phone is priced at (196 USD) Rs 11999/- on Flipkart or u may find it much cheaper in your local market.
