Micromax Canvas Spark 4G Q4201 is a poor try to create an entry-level smartphone. First, it’s really big with its 5″ display and more than 10mm thickness. This size doesn’t have any purpose either, as the display has a poor 480 x 854 pixels resolution, where the 1280×720 would be a minimum. Of course, there is an Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) OS installed here but doesn’t do much as the hardware is outdated for a phone released at the end of 2016. A Quad-core 1.3 GHz CPU based on Spreadtrum architecture isn’t going to make you happy and eager to do some multitasking.
Micromax Canvas Spark 4G Q4201 has a 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery that is mediocre at best. The only good side would be a design, but we don’t like thick bezels around the screen, making this huge smartphone look even bigger. An IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is, however, a pleasant surprise for the smartphone of this price.

I really don't like this phone at all! The 5MP camera here is very bad and with 1 GB of RAM i can only dream about good performance here. The design isn't that bad but it's not only about design unfortunately.
