Micromax Canvas A116 HD Vs Micromax Canvas 4

Browse This Page

Micromax today launched their new flagship device, the Micromax Canvas 4. It has been priced at Rs. 17,999/-.

It replaces the Micromax Canvas HD at the pinnacle of Micromax’s Canvas lineup, so we take a look at what it offers over the HD.

Both the devices have 720p IPS displays.

When we talk about the screen, both the Micromax Canvas HD and the Canvas 4 sport 720p HD IPS LCD displays. Both feature a MediaTek MT6589 chipset with quad-core CPU’s clocked at 1.2 GHz.

The camera seems to be the only major difference between the 2 devices.

Graphics are handled by a Power VR SGX544 GPU and the battery on both is a Li-Ion 2,000mAh. The rear camera on the Micromax Canvas HD is a 8 Megapixel snapper, whereas the Canvas 4 has a 13 Megapixel camera. The front camera on the Canvas HD is 2.1 Megapixel whereas the Canvas 4 has a 5 Megapixel front camera. 

Obviously, the Canvas 4 boasts of some enhancements on the software front with features like Blow to unlock and video pinning. It will also have OTA support for firmware updates.

So basically, all Micromax seems to have done with the Canvas 4 is add a better camera with some software enhancements. We’re sure this isn’t what most customers were looking for when they pre-ordered the device from their website.  

Most customers will be left disappointed by what Micromax has to offer with their latest flagship device.

What do you think? Did you expect better?

I guess the strategy is to stop A116 and promote Canvas4. This way MMX will get additional 4K for each piece. Since both seems to have similar specs in terms of  HW, A116 is a clear winner. But for new customers and who prefers better camera will go for Canvas4 (if A116 is no more available). I  have A116 and very happy and not going to upgrade to Canvas4.

Wifi and audio sucks(missed so many calls due to this) in mmx phones and cant take pictures in dark though has dual LED. And A116 available at 13k and canvas 4 is at 18k, so is it worth enough to spend 5k for a 13.1 pixel camera ??
