I think this is the best phone at this range.
micromax gives hard competition to all other brands like samsung....
A116 Canvas HD targets to mid-class due to its affordable price.
emadshiny, 22 Jan 2013what is this Micromax that everybody is so interested in? in my opinion, the specs are not so ... moreWell, micromax is not known for Micromax for ground breaking build quality like Apple, HTC and Nokia. But, they have been on a phone release spree. Micromax is competing with the S3 on this phone.
At 15K Rupees, it's one heck of a deal....
For that price,
you get a quad core processor which is not as powerful as the S3 but, still good
An HD display
and a GPU which is like the toned down version of the GPU on the iPad
For me, it's a deal
because I do the heavy stuff on my Nexus 7.
This is like a side device for me. Emails, messages on the go, small time gaming on the go.
Of course, I can pick up a cheaper phone.
But, I need HSPA+ (42 Mbps HSDPA+ HSUPA 5.76 Mbps) and an HD display which this device provides.
what is this Micromax that everybody is so interested in? in my opinion, the specs are not so eye catching. the only interesting fact is its price. God knows about the quality.
micromax a110 is still now my first android phone...first i was very much brand aware and was much hesitant to go for indian brand cause of my friends who have lumia's,sgs2..and htc...finally i got a110 for the specs and again cause of my friends who brainwashed me that these phones have cheap hardware/built quality i planned to return it but the shopkeeper assured me that this model is in much demand and requested me to use it ...now its more than 3 months apart from a slight volume button problem i havent faced a single issue..even on net there are many roms developed for a110..now i can see my friends burning with jealousy when i told them about A116 and its specs and its price..and they know well i cant be brainwashed again abt this brand....whooo MICROMAX....ROCK ON
guys am confused b/w canvas hd and xolo x900 the benchmark scores of canvas hd on quadrant are around 3600~3800 whereas for the intel based xolo it is 3800~4500

and does xolo x900 have nfc?
please i want a.phone. with nfc, wifi direct, good connectivity, and good screen that can run most games
also camera is a priority
also is galaxy grand a good option
anzar, 22 Jan 2013 Micromax A116 Canvas HD Rs 15000
Samsung galaxy s3 rs 32000
why such a huge difference ... more Minimum margin + to popularised their smartphone first, later to captured world smartphone markets.
Atleast 30 new handset variants (frm low to mid end) are expected in 2013 alone.
Dual SIM is currently huge market, as many people are going for Dual SIM.
Micromax is doing great job by launching high end phones in Dual SIM.
Keep up the good work...
wow...great specifications in lowest price...,
really micromax is rocking...
i like micromax by the experience of last 5 years...
really its gonna beat all other brands... all the best micromaxxx...
omesh, 22 Jan 2013Micromax until now has good sales in market.... But its going to be perfect oly if it changes ... morethis is your mind set and not people's mindset. Micromax provides flexibilty to corporate as well as daily customers to use a single phone for company as well as family/friends etc personal use, calling functions(one sim) as well as data function(on second sim). Don't go by the book which you refer. Go by the statistics which grows business. India has got a huge market for middle and lower middle class Dual SIM cell phone users. Thumbs up to Micromax A116 to become most popular phone on GSMArena than A110.
Only problem in this phone still persisted is that they haven't provided COMPASS (Magnetic Field Sensor) in this phone also like in A110 Canvas 2. Hopefully they would introduce it in final model (yet no hopes! 4.2 upgradibility is more than enough)
anzar, 22 Jan 2013 Micromax A116 Canvas HD Rs 15000 Samsung galaxy s3 rs 32000 why such a huge difference ... moreCause of the price difference is Samsung Exynos quad core is a high end powerfull processor ,micromax uses low cost mediatek processor and poor display than s3.
