Exclusive Hands on : Micromax A116 Canvas HD

micromax a116 canvas 3 front
With really no reason as to why the company numbered this device A116 the Canvas HD was announced today at a press conference in New Delhi. The Device is a add on the the popular A series for Micromax and is also a lead on to the highly popular A110 Canvas 2. The Phone is priced at an MRP of 14,999., But we expect the device to be available for around the Rs. 12,000 price mark in India.

The Micromax A116 Canvas HD is powered by a Mediatek MT6589 chipset that has a quad core 1.2 GHz processor and PowerVR SGX5 GPU, the device is laden with 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of storage. The front has a nice and vivid 16.7 Million color 5 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x720 hence the Canvas HD moniker.

The Micromax A116 Canvas HD is almost identical in design to the the A110 but seems a bit sleeker and more defined along the edges. The camera was non functional on the prototype unit that we handled, but the company says is better than the one on the A110. The Canvas HD also has an improved light perfonce in the front camera and an enhanced speaker if Micromax is to be believed. On the Benchmark front we found that the device was quite capable and was able to deliver a knocking performance (video soon). 

Internet browsing was surprisingly smooth, and the web page was snappily laid out on the poor internet connection that we had. The phone is also backed by Mediatek’s promise of a highly efficient battery life and low heat generation. Which should ensure a good overall user experience for Micromax A116 Canvas HD owners. 

Watch our hands on Video below and stay tuned for Benchmarks. We will also come out with an unboxing and Review in the coming week.

I have ordered Micromax canvas hd A116 and it is expected to be delivered around 15th march. I am a big gaming fan. but there is a issue with the less internal memory capacity in a116 as we have only upto 1.77 gb to install apps and games. So my biggest concern is that i wont able to play heavy games like nova3 and asphalt7. So is micromax  looking for any solution for this problem by making it possible to install games directlly on sd card by proper rooting?? If micromax will solve this issue then it will be the great news for all the possible buyers.

I purchased Micromax A110 canvas2 and I got touch problem in that I went to service center and it stopped working. I did whole replacement procedure there and then submitted DOA (form used for replacement) form to shopkeeper and I did whole procedure at 19th of Jan 2013 and till today I am waiting for my Micromax a110 replacement piece... It's been more than a month...

 

I also mailed all the details (Bill and DOA copy) to Micromax official mail ID and they replied me in a good way but there is no result.. They told me they gave all the details to their service team, and after that I didn't get a single progress mail....

Now I believe to buy a Micromax is a big risk even today....

@abhishekjainseo  @Hemant_7390 I agree that micromax is not a big company but it manufactures phones at a very reasonable rate...........and they are good too.......and I think that mmx a116 will be the victim that mmx is not a bad company

Karbonn has burnt the competition by pricing the quadcore Titanium at just 10,990...Now what you think is the right price for MMX A116 Canvas Hd???

@anujjaju  My Friend, pls go have a look @ these to phones spec AGAIN. micromax comes with better camera, battery, screen and it even looks better. the camera effects r also more available. i think micromax also offers videos to shoot @ 40-60fps. beat that..

anujjaju
anujjaju

@TanmayKale Yup for sure MMX is clear winner and i don't have any doubt in that...But we were predicting a price tag 13k for Karbonn Titanium as seen on many tech portals and it came around 11k...so it's possible that MMX A116 may come around 13k to surprise us...

I really appreciate your effort. You are doing a great job. I am happy that an indian is providing the review for all the new gadgets including indian product like micromax and Karban. I also want to appreciate the micromax for launching their first quad core phone with the very good specs. I was waiting for such phone that will have good ram, display and fast processor. This year(2013) has come with so many good news and  success for me. Hope I will get my first smartphone very soon.
