Camera: The Micromax Dual 5 comes with 13 megapixel dual camera as its primary snapper. This means both the cameras at the back are of 13 megapixel and one camera takes pictures in monochrome mode whereas the other snaps in RGB or color mode. Once taken, the camera application stitches both the image together to bring out a real-looking image. The rear camera features Sony sensor, Gorilla glass protection on the lens and support PDAF. The front camera is also of 13 megapixel and comes with a selfie flash. The phone also comes with a dedicated physical button for the camera.

Besides still photography, the Dual 5 also looks good on video photography. With this phone one can record 4K video, time-lapse video, slo-mo video. On top of this the Dual 5 is capable of recording 3D videos also.

Performance : The 5.5 inch smartphone deploys Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor. It comes with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage space. No one would need more space on a smartphone, though the Dual 5 is capable of expanding the capacity to another 128 GB.  The phone is built on a single piece of aircraft grade aluminium metal block and the super AMOLED display is protected by 2.5D curved glass. Micromax claimed its new antenna technology offers 20% better signal reception. The phone deploys a 3200 mAh battery with fast charging functionality.

Security : This is the most striking feature Micromax added to the Dual 5 is security. Unlike other phone, this smartphone brings security to the hardware level with integrating a special chip that stores all the sensitive data like passwords and passkeys.

Dual 5 has an independent high-grade security chip, which offers hardware level security. This chip is military grade and unbreakable. It has passed the CC EAL5 + security certification, which is the highest standards of ordinary civilian security level certification. Other smartphones have only EAL 2+ level security.

The phone comes with a safe switch, ensuring that no one else can unlock your phone or shut it down without a password. In-fact, any attempt to pull out the SIM card would lock the phone capturing the picture of the suspected intruder.
