Hello... Can anyone tell me how many video formats Micromax Canvas HD can play without any applications? What video formats can't be played on Micromax Canvas HD, can be played using MX Player on Micromax Canvas HD? So far i have only tried 720p HD MP4 and 3GP videos. A detailed information would be much appreciated. Thanks :)
Sapna Mulani, 04 Jun 2013Did u update?? No, i haven't updated my Canvas HD yet. It's because i am not sure if the update is official or just some custom ROM. If you've the phone numbers for the Micromax services centers then you can call them and ask if the update is available or not. That's the only way to know.
NicklessEGY, 05 Jun 2013I bought this mob. and im in Egypt now ... Cant i update it myself by any way ?Where did you buy Micromax A116 Canvas HD? If you bought it in India, then yes you can update it by your own. There are a lot of "how to update Micromax A116 Canvas HD to Android 4.2.1 update guide'' available on the Internet. Is this phone working in Egypt?
The Casanova, 04 Jun 2013Hello Suvham, SixAxis without rooting? R u kidding me? LoL....Look, If u wanna use Sony Dua... moreThanks for the reply. Six Axis app didn't ask for superuser permission at the first run so i thought this app don't require root permission but when i tried to pair my friend's PS3 dual shock controller, it said you device isn't rooted. I'll buy an Xbox controller as i don't want to root my phone anytime soon. And one more thing. I've read more than ten sites that Micromax has officially started rolling out Android 4.2.1 update for Micromax A116 Canvas HD, most of the sites suggests to visit the service centers for the update. Is it really true or just another rumour?
hi, inform where to get the update of 4.2 done in delhi. I visited a service center, they say they do not have any information about update
I had bought it 2months back. But since 3wks its in the service center. It has an issue on touch atleast 1 in 3 mob. And the touch sensors are also not available(stock shortage) from the company. So if r buying it be ready for poor service or pray that it will go smooth.
Guys can someone pls tellme the exact detailed specification of canvas hd batteries.. like input and output voltage n all ? It wil b of great help..
If you want to update your phone follow these steps
Bought this mobile 3 days ago.
My wife has samsung S3 , my sister has samsung Grand & my mother samsung Note II & my brother has samsung Dous 7.
Mobile (MMX A116) came to me from India with flip cover & screen protector.
Camera ... first day was shocking ... its simply bad ... not more than 3 MB quality.
Next day i discovered a protector on camera, when removed it, quality now slightly less than any 5 MB (I didnt try video till now).
Battery ... It drains as fast as Galaxy Dous 7, but it charges as fast as S3 or slightly faster.
Actually i prefer not to judge batteries in first week as normally its heavy duty week for any mobile.
Call sound quality ... Its average ... But better than Grand and sure than Dous 7 ... When tried the code and increased value from 142 to 160 i didnt feel much difference.
Mobile is so fast (Hands-on, its faster than Note II).
Touch & responses are amazing.
User friendly in all details.
Screen resolution & colors impressed all.
Every thing else i remember is great.
Overall, if any 1 needs high quality camera for his work ... Dont buy this mobile.
If camera is not so important ... Buy this mobile and u will not feel sorry at all.
Ive booked 2 new for other members in my family.
Thanks for all previous reviews .. It really helps.
Suvham, 04 Jun 2013Yes, now we can move apps to external SD card. Micromax has officially started rolling out And... moreI bought this mob. and im in Egypt now ... Cant i update it myself by any way ?
Hey guys (n gals)!
There have been reports that Micromax has released 4.2 update for Canvas HD. But they are all based on tweets by @MMXNewscaster.....
For some reason I don't feel this is an official update (or it may be coming up within next few weeks, but not available at present)...@MMXNewscaster isn't the official tweeter account of Micromax, it is just famous for leaking upcoming plans of Micromax... So, until Micromax announces something on their own, at least I won't be interested in it...
Some people have reported that when they called MMX customer care, they clearly suggested that there is NO such update as of now..So my guesses might be true...
Also, the link provided by some people are surely not official MMX ones...They may be leading to some custom ROMs with mentioned features such as App to SD n all...I can give u more than one links to such ROMs...but they arent official ones...
So, at this time, I can only hope that 4.2 update is coming up in near future, but surely not available at this moment..
Feel free to provide your views on this!
no covers are available in any of the store except the table top cover better go to the sony xperia
Suvham, 04 Jun 2013Thanks for the reply. I've downloaded Six Axis Controller from Play store but it doesn't requi... moreHello Suvham,
SixAxis without rooting? R u kidding me? LoL....Look, If u wanna use Sony DualShock PS3 controller with any android device, that device MUST be a rooted one. It's the primary requirement dude...
But in case of Xbox 360 WIRED (not wireless) controller, no rooting or installing any software is required...just plug it into ur A116 and you can play...I have a DualShock one, but I borrowed my friend's Xbox 360 wired controller yeaterday and it works like charm...I tried it with Ripitide. Once u start the game, u will get a settings screen where you can select between controller and touch controls. Select controller and u r done... Some games even respond immediately without any settings screen...depends on the game..
Sony PS3 controller is a tedious one...It has some steps that need to be done before u can use it, including rooting...
So, if u r ready to root ur device, i can give u further steps one by one....But if not, u can buy an Xbox 360 wired one (remember, don't buy wireless)...
If u need any further help, feel free to ask...
Thanks for reply dear so i will be making the right decision to buy it tomorrow.
I bought this mobile the day before yesterday...I am not a rough user like games or apps...but the mobile is very good about another features like, camera, battery backup.
Nizam 09, 04 Jun 2013hi...why there is no 4.2.1 upgrade to canvas 2... isnt it supports this...is there any hope in... moreDue to just 512 MB RAM it's pretty hard to optimize Android 4.2.1 for Canvas 2. Maybe in future it will get an update, not sure about it.
