Micromax Canvas Knight Benchmark and Gaming performance

canvas_knight_benchmarkMicromax 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.

  1. Is the Canvas Knight worth buying. Would you suggest MotoG or Canvas Knight? How is the battery life of The Knight?

    1. Moto G is comparable to Xperia M not with Canvas Knight they are both of very different categories. Canvas Knight is very powerful, which depletes its battery faster. Moto G, just like its price is a little easy on battery and on your wallet both. There are other value for money phones too like Xperia SP and Xperia C. It all depends on what you want, peformance, battery life, affordable, value for money? Performance wise Moto G is nothing in front of Canvas Knight’s raw power. Wait for my full review, for more on its battery life.

  3. which is better gionee e7 mini or knight???coz e7 mini got arnd 26k on antutu and 59.1 on nenamark(coz of 720p display i guess) 13k on quadrent…so shud i wait for e7 mini to launch or go for knight…?
    and how abt call voice clarity did u check voice callin??

    1. As i don’t have the E7 mini to test the performance myself, i can only say this, if you want smaller screen then go for E7 mini. Audio quality from knight’s phone speaker is very good, it’s very clear without much distortion.

      1. actually i needed to know abt the earpiece voice clarity and not the loud speaker…it would be real help if u could comment on that…

        and secondly is it dual active or dual stand by…

        thanks in advance…

          1. srry my bad…

            as the hardware is the same will e7 mini supposedly perform similarly in 3dmark ..??

            tht is the mian thing i’m concerned with….

          2. Again, like i said i don’t have E7 mini so i can’t say much about it but the hardware of E7 mini and Canvas Knight is not exactly similar. E7 mini’s processor is of 1.7Ghz and Knight’s processor is 2.0 Ghz, Knight has MTK 6592T, processor t stands for turbo and it means nothing but that it is the same MTK 6592 officially overclocked to 2.0 Ghz by Mediatek itself. GPU is same in both phones Mali 450MP.

            If choice was mine, i would go for Knight if i wanted 5 inch full hd screen, premium looks and E7 mini if i wanted small screen and also that unique swivel camera, but somewhat same performance.

  4. did u perform all the gaming tests at full brightness or a specific setting…..???
    will the battery suffice a full working day…with dual sims and one sim having 3g turned at all times even if not used??
    plz reply as i really need to buy a fone rite now and really confused between moto g and knight!

    1. No, the brightness was set to a little more than 50%. If you don’t use the phone much as in it just resides in your pocket all day and sometimes you take it out to check messages and such, with 3G on, then the battery might last all day. But if you play games on it and/or do a lot of web browsing with 3G on it won’t last you all day, by all day i mean from 9 am to 5 pm. Because of it’s octa core processor it losses battery pretty fast even in idle state.

  5. Plz reconfirm that the canvas knight is Dual standby or Dual active(means get calls on both sim simultaneously)?
    & secondly heating problem cause anything to handset in regular use?
