and for all the sammy fans out there, let me correct u all. There is no difference between quadcore and dualcore as such. Only difference will b when playing the hd videos over the internet.... Otherwise for gaming 1 gb ram is enuf.... The only place where sammy wins over microsoft
1- the screen is no match for note 2 , canvas hd will have better screen then canvas 2 for sure.
2- the battery life is avg as compared to note2 ( note 2 has gud battery life)
3- the browser is little below as well then note 2
4-note 2 is little more fast and responsive as compared to mmx c2(nt counting hd)

where mmx wins
1- its quite cheap( note 2 $700 or around 34 inr) mmx $280
2-the camera quality is superior ( v good , but not excellent) even the flash works fine at night .
3- there is no hanging issue till now with canvas 2 nd games run smoothly, even the apps runfine vid 512 ram( canvas 2 vl hv 1 gb ram) the touch is awesum
4-body is good and feels sturdy i hand( dosent look cheap at all).

So in imho i guess hd is a steal. For that price.....all those sammy fans please grow up or use the phone once , i have done that n i would say from where mmx is earning the profit and i guess big companies take big share of profits.... Go vid mmx hd u wont regret. I have a s3 and a canvas2 . M nt a mmx fan or a marketing paid guy. So i would say better use the phone urself and then decide for urself. Its a real steal.....

holy crap. This phone is one big awesum experience, i bet it will going to eat the market of a certain korean company. As this phones cheap, its camera is awesum, the touch and everything is a steal for 14k or say around $280. Man i have used canvas 2 and mind it i dunno from where micromax is getting the hardware , its great. I better shell out my money for this instead of buying something dats double the price. Guys frankly the screen is no match vid note2 and same goes for processor, but compare the prices $700 and $280. Man its a real steal. I just really wish if gsmarena could review it. It will definatly eat the market of another copycat, as u can get the good specs for half the amount. Anyways for correcting the information for gsmarena, galaxy grand is for 21k or say $420. Which is not its double but yaah nearly 1.1\5 times of the price micromax is offering. Using a s3 and this phone feally blowing me up. . Even some people balck marketed canvas2. Foe a thousand inr more. People are going crazy... Only if the screen is much better then the old canvas while watching hd videos..m game for this phone. If any of you have any doubts , check flipkart, or infibeam, either you will get the old canvas 2 out of stock or overpriced..

No need to hurry to buy it as they are taking 21 working days ( near to one month for dispatch) and no cash on delivery option. Means all money can be used for one full month & further where as another competitive mobile make of UMI X2 with less price are coming with full hd option ( 1980 x 1024) & quad-core processors so it will be best option with less price near to 12k with tentative service as on the spot return of 3/6 month approach ( in case of any defect from metro India city branches)

Micormax shall reduce the price within couple of months from now and calculate the % of reduction ,it would be more or less the same % of what other manufacturers do.

all these big companies like SAMSUNG, APPLE, SONY, HTC, ect.. are simply looting people with their high end phones. they simply use the weak point of the people, that is crazy for new phones and encash it.when the crazey for their mobiles goes down, they reduce the prices and sell them at much lower prices. how they are able to sell at much lower prices than the starting price?? just imagine how much profit margin they fix at the time of releasing the mobiles... small companies like micromax should bring the technology to commom man........
