I had Samsung, Blackberry and was looking for an affordable phablet when I heard Croma Chain of Electronic Stores were stocking Micromax Phones. I already knew of A110 Super Canvas 2 's legendary specifications, at only Rs. 10K price. So, I visited the Store the same day and reviewed the phone personally and bought it. Except the screen's resolution being less sharper than other high-end phones (the main difference between this and new A116), it has had no problem thus far for a month. Battery easily exceeds a day's charge provided net surfing is less, even though I use dual-sim and 32GB memory storage. So, this A116 must really bring it on.
The review isn't out yet because it hasn't yet released in India yet.
Another rebranded chinese phone. If you were to trace the original chinese handset you could get it for cheaper than what micromax is providing for these.
Almost all Mediatek based cheap android phones lacks Digital Compass. If this quad core phone comes with Digital Compass then I will buy it immediately.
I have al ready per chased a110, no issues to go for a116 but can.any one tel if at all it has magnetic sensor and gyro sensor (for compass use ) and stylos pen which I felt very impotent while handling this.phone
That Micromax is emerging as the only competitor to the Samsung galaxy series in India is really inspiring. Big things expected of Canvas HD. Long live Micromax.
I think is a great combination of budget & Power packed mobile. We expect a Full review of A116 from GSMArena :)
User of MMXA110, 21 Jan 2013I am using MMX A110 aka canvas 2 and its amazing.... but buying this was not less than an adve... moreHello user of MMXA110, the fact that you have chosen to get this for your husband is a good choice or rather a wise decision but, I would suggest you wait for a while till official reviews come out to the market. Most of the websites only have a hands on experience with the initial mobiles that were given for testing. Once they start hitting the market officially you could have a hands on experience yourself and decide if it is worth the investment. Keep visiting the website for future updates and I guess that should help you out.
Micromax, another emerging tech powerhouse. We need it here in Nigeria
gud phone.. But 15000 rupees.. This price tag does not fall in budged phone category.. Price should be between 10,000 to 12000..
Dan , 21 Jan 2013Wait , Wait , Wait .. we all might regret buying this phone if we dont check Lenovo P770 with ... moreAgreed Dan, It does have similar features but if you would notice the screen resolution it has a different specification. To be even more precise it does not feature a HD screen as Micromax & last, the screen is .5" less than Micromax. Nonetheless people would definitely believe in the brand name that Lenovo carries. It's a kind of a close shave choosing between both of them. Anyways it's a good suggestion from your side :)
SanketN8, 21 Jan 2013even though quad core it has a A7 processor lol
there a still few lags in the phone if u don'... moreIts will feel really stupid to expect it perform like a Droid DNA or One X+ or SIII at this point
(costing, well roughly one third of these sets).
Befor crticizing a product, we must keep in mind its target odience the price point it is serving.
I think it will really force the big guys to slash the price....
And that will be good news for guys like me, Will wait One S price drop ;)
