Canvas Spark series has done well for Micromax so far. The domestic manufacturer has sold over 1.5 million so far, largely owing to the ‘value for money’ factor associated with the Spark portfolio. Micromax is finally transitioning to Marshmallow, and that’s a good thing, but we would have liked to see Marshmallow based software with more refined custom skin on top on high end devices like Micromax Canvas 6 and Canvas 6Pro.
