Micromax Canvas Knight performed really well in benchmarks. To tell you exactly how well, let me tell you that it even beat Samsung Galaxy S4 in Antutu, don’t believe me? See for yourself in the screenshots below. Maybe Antutu is optimized for this chipset. The rest of the benchmarks were just average. Although these benchmarks don’t mean much yet because none of them is programmed to utilize each of the 8 cores available inside the Micromax Canvas Knight. I don’t think any of the benchmarks are fully designed yet to use the new Mali 450GPU either. In 3DMark which is mainly a gaming or GPU benchmark. When i ran general “ice storm” test it maintained frame rates around 28 fps constantly but when i ran “ice storm extreme” which is meant to be for 1080p displays and capable GPUs only the frame rate came down to below 20. That proves two things either Mali 450MP is not powerful enough to support 1080p graphics or the test is not optimized for Mali 450GPU. Below are the rest of the results and info about CPU, GPU and list of supported sensors.
First let me tell you something about its memory, its stated on its Micromax’ website that this phone has around 1.7 GB free space for apps and around 25 GB for mass storage. This is somewhat true but what it actually means is that it installs the initial app on the internal phone storage and the rest of its data on mass storage for example when you download any big game from Google Play it will first download and install the small app that is of some MBs in size on that 1.7 GB memory and then will download and save the rest of the game’s or app’s data on mass storage. Which means, you can install as many games as you want on this phone, well until your memory is full that is. So, memory wise you are going to have no problems with this phone.
Now performance wise this phone performs really well in most of the games although when you try to force max settings in a game it starts lagging which is natural because most games are not even optimized for this GPU. I don’t think they are optimized to use all the eight cores of the CPU either, but still it played every game i ran on it without any hiccups and didn’t even crash once. It gets a little hot around its camera area while playing games especially graphics intensive games, i think that it is because its GPU is situated there. I noticed it while playing GTA San Andreas, but it’s normal it happens in every phone with a powerful GPU. You can see how all the games performed in my gaming video below.
If you want to know the result of a specific benchmark just type its name in the comments section below and i will run the benchmark and update the results sections of this post with the mentioned benchmark result.
