I am using Micromax Canvas HD A116 for two weeks. I find the phone unsatisfactory. Display is not good as the colors are washed out. Sound quality is below average. The GPS takes much longer time than Samsung phones and the distance is inaccurate some times. Battery life is average. Even though it runs in latest android version, customization done be companies like Samsung make a huge difference. It is like raw meat and grilled meat ;). The positive thing about the phone is that the start up is fast and most applications run fast.
I recommend spending some extra amount and going for Samsung, LG or HTC. You will not remember (or regret) the extra money you spend on a product but you will always regret the quality of product if it is substandard.
I am going to buy this phone, can any one suggest me in this regards............
I have a Micromax A116. Positive: Great Price for someone who like many features, good speed & good screen resolution. Negative: 1) Phone hangs up quite often. (4-5 times since I got it i.e. 5th April) 2) Battery life could have been better (This is not a complaint. The battery lasts me on day.) 3) I have a pair of good quality headset from Sennheiser with 3.5 mm jack. it doest work on A116. it works awesome with my old Samsung Galaxy Ace.
Spell bound... A 116 rocks.. Boo Boo other major brands who loot people in name of brand value.. absolutely a gem..
All are these cheap china sets. you will not find any difference between micromax & karbonn & Celkon phones etc. all are same quality.

Their phone is either busy or not working. No replies to any of my emails. This is really frustrating. I will never order anything from Univercell.

Even I order the phone from univercell.in on 29th March. Still no word about it. This is the first and the last time I ordered from univercell. They have no regards for the customers. They don't reply to email. Neither does there contact number works. This was the most frustrating experience I have ever had with a online retailer.
We can only guess about why aren't they shipping the phone. Most probably its out of stock and they are waiting for Micromax to ship stocks to them. So, we would have to wait till Micromax produces its next lot. Which could take another week or two.
I purchased the mobile in poorvika chennai, india a full white model. phone storage shows ).98 GB that means approx 1 GB. Is it the RAM storage?. The internal SD card shows total space 1.77 GB that means 2GB of internal memory. It is wrongly shown in the specs of gsmarena that it is 4GB internal memory. Please user clear my doubt. The battery backup is very very weak and the 3g signals break quite frequently. Please clear these doubts.

AnonD-131547, 11 Apr 2013Yes Vaibhav, this is something which I first noticed in my canvas 2 that other brand headphone... moreI tried using iPhone headphones for Canvas HD, the sound is very low & with disturbance.
Please note that gyro and compass is not in Micromax A116 as mentioned by the GSMArena specs.
Can any one tell how to test the proximity and Accelerometer?. Phone is good; however, should have given bigger battery ( I mean capacity else size is already big).
Also, when checked the Internal memory it shown as 1.77 GB. I already checked the About option and it does not have information about the 1GB RAM and the other hidden 2GB internal memory. Can anyone suggest solution to confirm if there is total memory?
