Samsung Galaxy Grand I9080 Vs Micromax A116 Canvas HD, Specs, Features and Price

Browse This Page

 

The market is a blaze with possibly the two best dual sim smartphones of this quarter, The Micromax A116 Canvas HD and the Samsung Galaxy Grand I9080. The question that everyones asking is what is really the difference between the two.

Brand Names 

Apart from being manufactured totally differently, the two phones come from two different type of manufacturers. Micromax up until recently was known as a “Budget/cheap” phone maker for India, whereas Samsung has enjoyed the market name and snob value of a luxury phone brand. 

SOC

The Micromax A116 is built on a Mediatek SOC, a relevantly newer company formed in 1997, that also builds components for “Budget and Chinese” devices. The company has made some breakthroughs in technology in the past two years and shares a considerable chunk of the marketshare.  

The Galaxy Grand is built on a 1.2 GHz processor which remains unknown as of now. Several indicators point to the use of a  Broadcom BCM28155 SoC. It comprises a pair of ARM Cortex-A9 cores and Broadcom’s own VideoCore-IV graphics engine for 2D and 3D acceleration. Whether this performs any better than the Mediatek processor is currently unknown. 

Sim Cards

Both the phones have Dual Sim, The Galaxy Grand has a slight advantage here, because it has smart autoforward, so it allows a busy Sim Card’s calls to be sent to the other phone, keeping both sims active at once. Although the chip inside the A116 is capable of similar features, the Canvas HD currently is only single sim active. 

Displays

Displays are an interesting comparison for these devices, while the Canvas HD boasts a whopping 1280 x720 pixel laden 5 inch IPS display the Galaxy Grand only comes with a 480 x800 px LCD display. Numbers aside the display on the Grand was pretty impressive and does not feel pixellated as the numbers on the sheet would suggest. We also found that the colors were more vivid on the Galaxy Grand’s display as opposed to the Micromax Canvas HD. 

Cameras

Both Carry 8 MP camera’s which will only be tested while we are reviewing the devices, but if Samsung is using their own sensor in the camera, the Grand could have a slight advantage over the A116. The front camera on the Galaxy Grand is also superior to the 0.3 MP basic front camera on the Canvas HD A116.

Operating System

Samsung puts in a lot of effort into making a custom UI for their devices, along with several apps and tweaks. So Samsung definitely gets the upper hand here. With features like pop up play, direct call, multi window and most importantly an inbuilt task manager the Galaxy Grand gets the much needed upper hand here. Of course TouchWiz UI has several other features and good looking icons that most are aware of.

Micromax clearly looses here, the software is basic Android jelly bean, with a bit of customizations done by the Micromax Software Research team in conjunction with the manufacturers. The UI can become laggy and does not have the easy tweaks as seen in TouchWiz . However Micromax’s UI offers several customizations and file access that is restricted in Samsung devices. You can almost install any app and replace the UI, But you will not get the fit and finish of a manufacturer made custom UI. Maybe in the coming years with the success of the Canvas series Micromax can build their own UI (or buy one : MiUi would fit the name too)

Build Quality and Looks

More or less built with plastic, both devices have identical looks. The Micromax Canvas HD A116 seems a lot more refined to look at in comparison to the Canvas 2, and feels a lot more sturdier than the already sturdy past model. The Galaxy Grand is set to resemble the Note 2 when it arrives in the market, with a glossy bezel and identical looks and matching colors with flip cases. A user could easily pass off as using a company flagship for half the price. Build to that the identical user interface and similar features including perks like multi window puts the Galaxy Grand a step ahead in the Looks department. 

Samsung India is banking on identical looks to be a key sales factor in India, especially because  Grand owner can get the feel of a Note 2 for almost Half the price.

 

Price

In India its all about the price, and Samsung will loose here, miserably. The Galaxy Grand is priced at Rs. 21500 at street level selling price. Whereas the Micromax Canvas HD A116 has a MRP. of 14999 and is expected to sell under Rs. 13000. This puts a gap of 10000 Rupees or almost US$ 200 between the two. An amount which in some cases could comprise of a monthly salary of working individuals. 

Conclusion

While we honestly cannot tell if one performs better than the other until we have our dirty claws in the dish and can review both these phones side by side. We do have one news that is set to make matters difficult for everyone, Karbonn and Lava are all set to announce quad core phones, so Stay Tuned.

I bought the micromax a 116, used it for 3 days, but could not get satisfied. then I bought samsung galaxy grand. I can boldly say it that brand does matter, till now I have been using the best Nokia phone, but for the first time I opted lower brand just for features at cheaper price, but friend keep in your mind that big brands never compromise with the quality. just shoot a pic in day light and inside room in tube light with both units you will see a great difference in the picture quality, however both have 8… Read more »

CAN I TRUST MICROMAX? Now there are some question many people are asking me that is Micromax a Chinese company or can I trust Micromax or are Micromax phones worth buying ? So let me make this thing very clear that Micromax is an Indian company which is based in Gurgaon. So it is not at all a Chinese brand. I’ve even noticed that some people do not accept it as a good mobile phone manufacturer as it is an Indian company. Believe me, we Indians have a lot of potential and we should be proud that an Indian company is doing… Read more »

I cant believe you are all saying that Indian products sucks as if you have had the Canvas HD for a year. This is not Samsung vs Micromax. This article is for people who are willing to buy a ‘value for money phone’ and on that I think the Canvas HD clearly wins. Any brand Chinese, Japanese etc. dont matter unless they are value for money. You should be ashamed to be Indians saying these cheap phones are all the  same as if you’ve been using them for a whole year. And I am sick of you comparing a Rs.13000… Read more »

@Akumarcom  @Saurabh Gupta  Its not abt sharing the same hardware…Its abt the implementation part.. The way android os is implemented can harness the capability of the hardware or even hinder it… Vendors should have proper communication with component providers.. Suppose there are two companies X & Y, the both launched product Z with exactly same specifications.. Now if X has proper sources and obtains the appropriate proprietary binary from the manufacturer, then he can harness the best from the hardware.. Like galaxy nexus has 5MP camera but still it can shoot 1080p videos.. Anyways i went for Xperia S n i… Read more »

The Galaxy Grand only comes with a 480 x800 px LCD display.
Rich videos shot at 1080p will be toned down to match the screen resolution of the Galaxy Grand Duos, ruining the HD viewing experience for many. The same will go for graphics-heavy games. Not a great thing to contend with specially when Micromax’s Canvas HD offers a better resolution.

@snadeemshaikh yes 480 x 800 but support full hd playback so no prob

@AshishHarsh The most features you said are either available in PlayStore or available by default in JB.   JB comes with Google Voice and Google Now which blows S-Voice and Siri outta water. Infact its better to use Google voice and Now in Grand than S-Voice. Face Unlock is similarly available from ICS by default. Smart Stay alternative are SmartStay_Ex and I See You, Pop up play alternate is Super Video, etc…   Imho multi-window feature will be best for bigger display phones with GOOD RESOLUTION and S-Pen.

Just post an Ad on Olx or quikr that you want to sell your Micromax A110 for 8000/- which was initially bough for 10K & then see the response. I know Samsung is best but these budget phablets from Micromax rocks.

@AshishHarsh @xxxyyyzzz That means you Guys agree that if one is buying Galaxy Grand they will only get features worth 14K & around 7K they will pay for taxes.
 
Your questions would be why 14K ? Bcoz if Samsung can sell 1.4 Quad core @17K that means they can sell 1.2 dual core @ 14K
 
These processors are not of Snapdragon or any reputed one’s, they are cheap china processors which is used in Galaxy Grand to lower the cost.

@AshishHarsh@snadeemshaikh I will definitely go with Micromax A116 because Samsung is biased with Indian users. Samsung has launched this same Galaxy Grand in Korea (their home country) with 1.4 Ghz Quad-core processor at a lower price i.e. 350000 won ($327 or INR 17,590). Why no Quad-core for Indians ?

@callvipin  You are the opposite of Batman. You think these chinese phones Micromax offers are gold. They aren’t. I have a tablet from the same chinese company Micromax bought from and rebranded. It sucks.  Unusable. This is where others devices MAY lie. Canvas A116 looks good. It may be awesome but will not get support and development from all over the world. For example, I have a Galaxy 5 from Samsung. 2 years old. Still upto date. Running Jellybean. Why? Because some people from Brazil thought it would be a good idea. A closed market is the worst thing that… Read more »

think where was samsung 3 yrs ago….I bet within 3 months samsung will cut the price of galaxy grand by 7 to 8 thousand for the 3 months These cheep korean company is cheating indian people …with there marketing plans and campaigns. Indians are now liking show off… even if a product sell twice its worth ppl are ready to buy….1 or 2 rs diesal price increase they don’t tolerate… These companies should ban…and the pricing should be justifiable….and the details should be announced in public…

@AshishHarsh Nothing wrong in appreciating a valid alternative.
Yes Samsung is no.1 and I am glad they beat Apple. Note 2 is an outstanding device(In my opinion unquestionably the best mobile phone in the market) and everybody should thank Samsung for starting this phablet category. But ultimately, spending over 30K for a phone/phablet feels like overkill.
An alternative(A116), costing about 15K, with a big 5″ IPS 720p display with a promising processor does sound lucrative. Lets wait for some benchmarks and reviews, it it does well then we have a winner.

@axis no this is wrong rumour that grand price is 21500 this is MRP not price when it comes in market in 7-10 days after limited addition of grand 
grand price will be  17000  in real world thats great deal as compare to 116 hd only 2 thousand more and diff is screen reselution and processer  that SUCKS

@AshishHarsh  @axis ashishhars u r right screen sucks and so called quad core processor quadrant benchmark score between 3200 – 3600 & note 2 6800 – 6900

@AshishHarsh  A116 will retail at around 13K and i9080 will be around 20K, but as per specs will still have a dual core processor and a Low-DPI LCD display. If the benches of the A116 do any justice to its quad core MTK processor it should be an excellant bargain. MTK 6577(dual core) did bench well and the proccy in the A116 is surely an upgrade over it.

@xxxyyyzzz in electronic market  just see our needful specification & price suits us. Because nowadays every products are manufactured in China or nearby countires.  
If u want to waste money in the name of Brand u buy costly products or buy other.
Even a Rs 3000 Phone  comes  with Android & functions same as Rs 8000 Branded Phone.

@nitinlalsare ok then why dont u compare ur so called a110 with s2 then see the difference micromax use cheap meditack processor and a110 screen sucks and a116 is quadcore then why dont u compere it with some quadcore like s3 or note 2 i bet a116 no chance stand against note 2 or s3 hahahaah

@xxxyyyzzz Yes lets compare Canvas HD with s2 and s3. First thing, you can buy 2 Canvas HD with the price of S2 or S3. You are not very smart are you? The canvas HD is half the price of these phones but it can compare with those. Just think of a micromax phone with a price as high as these phones Samsung will surely lose.

@xxxyyyzzz  Most components are manufactured in China, the broadcom processor in the i9080 is manufactured in China. At best Samsung would “assemble” their phones in Korea.

3 if u buy micromax u r not able to use it more then year

axis

@xxxyyyzzz  Please learn some basic English grammar instead of making a fool out of yourself on the internet. 
 
Both phones are touted as budget phablet phones, hence the comparison is valid. Samsung is cutting corners here by using a Broadcom instead of its own Exynos proccy. Mediatek dual-core processors benchmark quite well, so you can expect this Quad core to do well; plus 480×800 LCD vs 1280x720p IPS display is clearly a no-contest.
 
Not admitting that the specs of the A116 are way better than the i9080 just shows your bias!
