According to Mr. Vineet Taneja, CEO, Micromax Informatics Pvt. Ltd., the phone has 2 major User Selling Points (USP) and these are, firstly the slimness of the phone (since it is the slimmest phone, end to end, till date in the world) and the second USP is the lightness of the phone i.e the weight of the phone since it is the lightest phone till date weighing at just 97 grams.
When talked to journalists and other people everybody felt that the phone is a bit overpriced as compared to the specifications since there are many phones in the same budget price range and have much better specifications then the Canvas Sliver 5.
Also the non-availability of the expandable memory is also a negative point to the phone.
