Micromax A116 Canvas HD Vs Galaxy Grand

Operating System:
Micromax A116 Canvas HD comes with the Jellybean 4.1.2 firmware out of the box, but the problem with the Micromax phones is that after installing some 10 -15 apps in the device, the device lags a lot and also the OS is not polished by Micromax to enhance the user experience. When it comes to Android, the only thing which competes is the Android’s OS version. In the race for getting next OS earlier than the other phone gets, Micromax Canvas HD gets the promise for Jellybean 4.2 firmware and out of the box Canvas HD comes with Jellybean 4.1.2 firmware update.

    Micromax has changed the Front camera to 2MP instead of 0.3 MP and priced at 13,990 INR which takes it further ahead of Grand..

    You don’t seem to have seen Canvas body. It is priced at 13990. Why waste money by buying an inferior device at 22k when there is a better device at 14k?

    If you’re talking about Quad-core processor, pal, it WILL be expensive! As far as dual-core is concerned, I think Samsung has done excellent job except that the resolution is too low for such a Grand phone!
