Design and Build
Let’s talk about design first. The Evok Dual Note looks pretty and stylish with a metal back and 2.5D curved glass on the front. It comes in Gold and Prussian Blue color of which the Prussian Blue looks more elegant. This 5.5-inch smartphone is easy to hold in hands and has a nice grip.
It has two cameras on rear and this time fingerprint scanner is integrated with the home button on the front. The Volume rocker and power button are present on the right edge and easily accessible using the right thumb. The Evok Dual Note is a very slim and manageable phone that looks neat.
One of the best features of this handset is its 5.5-inch full HD display which is sharp and vibrant. It reproduces punchy colors and bright colors and is also easily legible under direct sunlight. The display is also quite light on eyes owing to a well-balanced white point.
Camera and Imaging
The primary highlight of Evok Dual Note is its 13MP + 5MP dual rear camera setup. There is 13 MP primary camera with Sony IMX258 sensor and a 5MP secondary rear shooter. This is one of the most basic dual camera implementation where the second camera is used for sensing the depth of objects in the image. The information is further used to blur background or foreground for creamy DSLR like bokeh effect.
Images we have captured in a good amount of light, come with good colors, ample details, and reasonable brightness. The details in pictures are also quite impressive. Images also have natural colors. The camera, however, struggles in inadequately lit indoor and outdoor environment. The front camera is average and could have been better.
Performance And Software
Micromax Evok Dual Note is powered by 64 bit Octa Core MediaTek MT6750 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. Graphics are handled by with Mali T860 GPU. The SoC is also paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM. The performance we are getting is apt for basic and moderate users.
All day-to-day tasks and casual gaming work fine. The handset can also keep multiple apps in RAM without breaking a sweat. At the same time, this isn’t a phone meant for hardcore gamers. The software running on the phone is Android 7.0 Nougat OS with some light customization on top. If you are a basic or moderate user, performance shouldn’t be an issue.
We didn’t face any issues with call quality in our area and the fingerprint sensor on the phone is reasonably fast and accurate.
Battery and Pricing Details
Evok Dual Note bears a 3,000mAh battery that can last for about one day of mixed usage which includes watching videos, surfing the net, calls on 4G network, music, and other generic activities. Fast charging isn’t supported, though and the phone takes up to 3 hours to charge from 0 to 100 percent.
Evok Dual Note comes in two variants. The 3GB RAM variant is available for 9,999 INR and the 4GB RAM variant costs 11,499 INR. The Prussian Blue color variant is only available with 4GB RAM.
Micromax Evok Dual Note offers dual rear cameras at a very economical price point of under 10K, and that’s perhaps its biggest highlight. Other than that, the phone looks attractive and has a good quality display along with a decent set of cameras on both front and rear. If you are a basic user looking who’s fascinated by the idea of an extra shooter, and if you are limited by a budget of 10K, you can consider Evok Dual Note as an option.
