MICROMAX CANVAS KNIGHT
New Micromax Canvas Knight Octa-core phone units are now reportedly shipping with Android v4.4.2 KitKat OS in India.
The new Android v4.4.2 KitKat OS brings in slew of enhanced features such as smarter caller ID, more organised message grouping (now all SMS, MMS, Video & Audio messages under one roof -Hangouts), quick access to settings, colourful Emoji characters on keyboard, Voice search (OK, Google!), Quickoffice word document app, Cloud printing (only with select HP printing), Bluetooth MAP (Message Access Profile) and many more.
The phone also tends to heat up very quickly after a quick game of Ridiculous Fishing or snapping a few pictures. We also noticed the phone tends to get quite sluggish after playing a game. A couple of times, the game would just crash to the home screen. This happened again when streaming music over Bluetooth. The tracks would skip intermittently and distort quite a bit with an incoming notification. There doesn’t seem to be much optimisation done within the software to efficiently use the eight cores. The GPU onboard is also a mainstream one as its performance is only slightly better than the one used in a Snapdragon 400 chipset.
