Micromax has let out yet another sensation into the market, or has it? Micromax today announced the new Micromax Canvas 4 A210, a double jump in model number but no real jump in specs. The phone is priced at Rs. 17990 and is available to purchase today.

Initial Impressions

At the first glance the phone will remind you of each and every Canvas phone you have seen till date, plastic design and glass front and the Micromax Canvas 4 A210 is no different. The built quality is much improved over the previous edition Canvases but it is identical to many a smartphone already in the market. The bezel reminds you of a an iPhone with a stainless steel finish where the back panel is very Samsung.

Micromax has kept exactly the same specs of the Canvas HD with the Micromax Canvas 4 A210 and only bumped up the camera on the back and the front. The Blow to unlock feature, comes via an app and is very gimmicky and should cause a lot of problem for people. The interface is stock apart from a lot of Micromax bloatware and the performance seems shabby at first. 

The cameras did not boot up on the device we were shown so we were unable to check them out, but the camera app is the standard camera app. The Micromax Canvas 4 A210 is the company’s attempt at making a device which focuses on build quality vs the hardware, and it seems to most this will be a disappointment. The company is also promising good service and easy replacements for the devices, which can only be seen in the time to come. 

The camera upgrade and design are not the only changes, Micromax has also reduced the battery to a 2000 mAh battery which may end up resulting in lower battery life. Has Micromax built up this phone too much pre launch to the extent that users got really excited? Is the Micromax Canvas 4 A210 overpriced? While we search for the answers check out the images and stay tuned for a hands on Video.

Micromax has hugely disappointed me with this new launch as the hype & expectations were sky high and they haven't risen an inch from A116. The new so called features are just gimmicks to increase the price. I did expect a full HD display, a better GPU, 2GB RAM, and a better improved battery. I CANCELLED my pre order and is waiting for iberry Nuclea N1. Do give us a good review of the same please...

The design of canvas 4 is beautiful and the device looks premium like other high end devices btu the main issue is that mmx had packed the same specs of canvas HD  and it is priced high people would rather like to buy around 15k - 16k

Micromax, please name this device CanvasHD+ OR A116+. If I had made a pre-order, I'd cancel it for sure.

Was expecting hike in RAM, Processor and battery but MMX disappointed. Price and some features are good and still its worthwhile to buy a phone for 18000 bugs having so much features and look.

I think this phone is awesome i would rather buy two of these in a  year than buy one of htc or samsung or another so-called "BRANDED" phone why? u ask ... because this phone is perfect in terms of price and processing power moreover none of us is going to require hardcore processing power unless u are a dev, heck even the devs would love such a cheap phone they can keep on experimenting (overclocking, moding) on such a cheap and powerful device without burning thier pockets and rather burning the processing chips ;)

@Balthazarx - Dude, the problem here is that its predecessor A116 has the same specifications. and 6K cheaper. Ofcourse this phone is cool one, just that we did not get what it could have been.

I HAVE CANCELLED MY PRE ORDER. ITS SUCH A WASTE OF TIME THINKING ABOUT THE PHONE DUE TO THE HYPE CREATED BY MMX FOR SUCH A BULL SHIT OF A DEVICE ( WHIS IS A REBADGED DEVICE).
