A110Q Canvas 2 Plus vs A116 Canvas HD and A110 Canvas 2
In favour of A116: Compared to the two other models, Canvas HD is certainly your best bet right now. It is now readily available and provides impressive set of features, however if you don’t want to spend INR 15K, look at the other two options.
In favour of A110Q: The quad-core processor on-board is a decent upgrade over the dual-core CPU in A110 and it is same as A116 Canvas HD. 1GB of RAM is another positive and so is the presence of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Design-wise, the phones look exactly the same as A110.
In favour of A110: Apart from the lower price than A110Q Canvas 2 Plus and A116, there are no reason to choose A110 here. If you really want a Canvas-series phone in sub-10K pricing, then you can opt for A110 Canvas 2.
