So, Is The Canvas Infinity Pro Worth It?
The Canvas Infinity Pro is definitely a better buy than Canvas Infinity. But, when it is compared to other competition in the market, the Infinity Pro lags far behind. Honor 7X offers a 18:9 ratio screen with a better processor and dual cameras at a lesser price. Even the Redmi Note 4 fares better in terms of performance. If camera is the priority, the Mi A1 is a far better alternative.
In a nutshell, the Canvas Infinity Pro does have a few improved features, but there are following potential deal-breakers;
- It has an underpowered processor in its price bracket.
- Only HD display is unacceptable at this price.
- Overall smaller battery
However, if you love taking selfies, want to enjoy a bezel less display and performance is not your priority, you can go right ahead and order the new Micromax Canvas Infinity Pro from Flipkart.
