So frens after using my MICROMAX CANVAS HD for a day,evening n night I wud lik 2 share my xperiance abt dis cell....nw lemme tell u 1 thing dat in my post m not comparing dis handset wid any other handset as I knw dat dis page has become a battleground for many smartphon lovers of different BRANDS...so peace bro .So I recieved my canvas hd yesterday .Packaging was alrite but de shud hav done it better .inside beside d mobile I got 1 handset pouch(not flipcvr) simple one,Wat can u expect if it is free product.Nxt abt d handset proper I got Blak n white one ..Well I read in other post dat complete white one is also der, so my bad luk.I must say d handset felt really good in hands,weight was fine not so heavy not so light,slim,trust me guys it felt slimmer dan Canvas 2(my frend had 1) may b becoz f built quality.M not going 2 say more abt external appearance u all knw abt it.Let me get 2 d points-
-Solid build,no sqeeky sound(premium feel).I wish I cud hav dat complete white canvas hd.
-Its fast really fast...starting n setting up d mobile was really fast didnt take much time.
-Now abt display quality...Man I loved d beautiful display. D resolution is really realy 100+ .Its very Sharp.Bright ...U can adjust it also it has auto brightnes.Outside also I was able to see everything quite nicely.
-Regarding sound quality....it was nice .Dont knw wy people say dat its sound quality is bad ....actually it is only when u put d phone down covering its speaker(placed in d back lower part f d phone).D given headphone quality is average but, but its sound quality is good trust me ,if u dont lik d headfone den buy a new headphone.I used my other In-ear headfone which worked nicely.In my handset no Sound related issues.
-Camera- Hmm I think everybody thinks dat dis types of phone cannot give nice camera ...but looking at d photo n video quality I can say dat it is enuf for day to day photography ....advice- wen u use stok camera software 1st just tap d middle f d screen n let it focus,wen focus is complete (shown by green square in d middle f d screen) den tap in d capture button.Trust me photo will come really nice ..or u can install INSTAGRAM frm playstore,it really gives nice picture.N also c clicking d photo in HDR mode
-Gaming is one part wer I loved the ability of d phone to run d HD games. I installed Temple run 2,subway surfer,RR3.....m going download more lik dead trigger,frontline commando, crood .Afterwards m going 2 post abt it ...its nice playing such games in dis mobile afterall large screen u knw, only problem may b its 1.77 gb internal memory ...But u all knw u can root it n swap d memory wid external memory.
-Internet-No problem in dis segment....both 2g n 3g are working f9...Advice -u can install Dolphin browser its really gud .I hav installed other browsrs frm playstore, its upto u .I was able 2 play HD videos frm youtube wid no problem.Com on wat du u need more dan dat seriosly.
-GUys m really happy to say dat my google map n GPS r working nicely ....I read dat few f d model had GPS problem ,bad luk 4 dem .
-Wifi -no issues wid wifi ...I was able 2 connect 2 my laptop thru wifi....Also wifi hotspot n tethering is working nicely.. No bluetooth issues...no USB connectivity issues.
-Battery- I must say dat m writing dis section under thumbs down becoz I think its battery backup cud hav been little better dan dis ....But u all know dat Android devices dont hav gud battery backup so seeing dat I can giv Canvas hd 6.5 out of 10.Remember its all upto u how u use d mobile coz surfing WEB ,playing Games,Long talk obviosly drains out large amount f power.
-Memory-Well 1.77 GB user internal memory is low....I think for heavy gamers it will b really really low.But for normal guy who dont play heavy games its enuf .....But I m a heavy gamer so I think later m going 2 root my phone and swap the internal memory wid external one ...Hey 1 advice it will b gud if u use class 10 micro SD cards as it was mentioned in a video in youtube...
Well M enjoying my CANVAS HD,I hope U all do d same n guys Regarding Rooting,memory swaping or facing problems wid GPS or WIFI OR DISPLAY or any other,try to find the solution first in youtube...,I think u might b able to find d solution.

hardrocker, 27 Mar 2013what is the function of COMPASS... plesee tell me..how calibrate touch screen..??? my tosh ... moreCompass is for the auto-orientation of maps.There should be a magnetometer on the hardware part of the phone for the compass application to work. Micromax have not launched a phone having compass (magnetometer sensor). All samsung android phones starting INR-6000 have built in compass.
please upload a pic who have received this phone in pure white asap
