“Micromax is an Indian consumer electronics manufacturer located at Gurgaon, Haryana,India. It focuses on the manufacturing of mobile telephones and LED Televisions. It has 23 domestic offices across the country and international offices in Hong Kong, USA and Dubai. Presently, the company has about 1400 employees. Micromax Informatics Limited has announced its foray into Maldivian telecom space through an exclusive partnership with Sense Wood Maldives (Pvt) Ltd.
Micromax is the 3rd largest manufacturer in India and 12th largest handset manufacturer in the world”
That sounds great on paper. But Micromax isn’t a device manufacturer at all. It simply rebrands chinese phones. Micromax A60 is the ZTE Penguin, the A85 is Aliyun W-800 and A90 is Gionee 868.
Obviously, none of that matters to most people, as Micromax is a “brand” now. In India, you can become a brand in two dichotomous ways. First way is to create iconic products(Nokia 3310) and give exemplary service. The other is to sponsor a bunch of events(Sunburn, few music awards, India-Sri Lanka “domestic matches” and so on.) without having a substantial product.
Till now, Micromax was a nonentity in the premium segment, until it launched the CANVAS HD. It was the first budget quad core device to be taken seriously and surely it got sold out in minutes. The phone itself is good. But here are my problems with it.
1) It is not Canvas HD but a rebranded Ginoee GN878, I’m not too sure, but it looks like that to me.
2) The term quad core is misleading. The high end quad core phones are actually ARM cortex A9 quad core phones whilst Canvas HD is a cortex A7 quad core phone.
“What is this cortex thing. Why can’t I have this phone in pink?” is what a female acquaintance asked me today. The next few lines will need an elementary understanding of microprocessors

WiFi,3g,gaming,clarity, everything am comparing this with s3.only problem but pretty big is battery life.its like hell.yesterday night 8 pm to 12 45 my battery reduced from 100 to 15 percent.I was connected to 3g,using Bluetooth,playing,and watching movie.
games are working awesome.I checked with temple run oz.and rope escape both loading faster than s3.
it got crash shutdown twice.but too many applications were running in the background.I copied some HD songs that was pretty nice.didn't get the scratch cover so I used galaxy grands cover.other problem I am facing is everyone saying its MMX.but in th first look this phone just look like one from HTC.
Yjr, 13 Mar 2013Tell me any1 shuld i but mmx canvas hd? Plz nooo don't even think of it!!! they are just gud on paper not in reality....go for grand
wtf!!! video recording from primary camera changed from 1080p to 720p and from secondary camera changed from 720p to VGA.... a huge disappointment :(
