Micromax A116 Canvas HD vs Micromax A110 Canvas 2

micromax-a116-canvas-hd_VS_A110-canvas-2Micromax has announced the latest Canvas series smartphone today and it is called A116 Canvas HD unlike the rumours of Canvas 3. Packing a MediaTek 6589 quad-core processor, it will go on sale starting the first week of next month (i.e. February). Company has revealed that it wants to price A116 Canvas HD under INR 15K, which will surely make it an instant hit.

We thought it was time that we compared Micromax A116 with previous iteration of Canvas smartphones from Micromax.

Micromax A116 is significant improvement over the previous versions, considering that it packs a 720p display, quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. Canvas 1 and Canvas only have 512MB RAM, single and dual core processors respectively and WVGA resolution displays.

The presence of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is another positive for A116 over A110, A100, both of which currently run on Android 4.0 without any news on the upgrades.

Other specifications are pretty much same other Canvas smartphones apart from odd upgrades like 2100 mAh battery or same dual-SIM connectivity.

Here is a quick specs comparison of the A116 Canvas HD and A110 Canvas 2 smartphone as original Canvas is irrelevant right now.[table id=51 /]

    (February 14, 2013 - 6:11 pm)

    No need to hurry to buy it as they are taking 21 working days ( near to one month for dispatch) and no cash on delivery option. Means all money can be used for one full month & further where as another competitive mobile make of UMI X2 with less price are coming with full hd option ( 1980 x 1024) & quad-core processors so it will be best option with less price near to 12k with tentative service as on the spot return of 3/6 month approach ( in case of any defect from metro India city branches)


    (February 14, 2013 - 9:34 am)

    canvas 2 is great phone in lower price. Canvas 116 also great but its price is unefortable….
    Also in many towns in india there r no service centers of MM but other companies having lots of that so people come to them. I am also want to buy it. But when i was thinking about cust. care i was confused….
    If this problem is solved also when it provide better service then 13k-14k is nothing for MM. We want to buy indian products but we scare to take this risk. Ok if anyone has facing problems with canvas 2 plz write them below. My frinds we want to buy indian products to develope oup country and also indian companies wants to provide good facilities to ur customer bcoz ur products are to good but bcoz of ur weak services we turned to samsung. Ok i want to tell only MM canvas 2 and 116 are superb phone if provide dual core processor, 1GB ram.

    Once 116 is launched , price for 110 should drop to 7K and 116 should be priced at 9 – 10K , then only micromax can retain marked … these are standard mobile mkt dynamics

    Within one month of launch above trend will follow………………. enjoy time reaching fast…………

    Canvas 2 is a great superphone but when we compare with Canvas HD A116 then A116 is much better.
    If the prize of A116 will down to around 12 to 12.5 thosand then this phone will sell more than Samsung S3 and Note series.
    If prize exceeds then people may attract to buy samsung rather than micromax.


    (January 26, 2013 - 5:01 pm)

    I have used Canvas2 A110 and it is really awesome in such price. Samsung and HTC are charging for the brand only. But the New Canvas HD should be priced arround 12-12.5 thousand not more than that else will loose it popularity. Believe me if Canvas2 A110 is for 9999 than new Canvas HD must nt be priced beyond 12 thousand.

      (January 26, 2013 - 9:30 pm)

      I agree with all, Micromax A116 Canvas should not exceed 11k or a max of 11.5K or else people will look for other brands most likely Samsung and for sure if labelled more than that ,then its market is going to drop by 80%.

    Amir R K

    (January 25, 2013 - 7:17 pm)

    canvas A116 HD should be around Rs. 11000 – 12000, then only it can beat the others company…..


    (January 25, 2013 - 10:50 am)

    Brand like Micromax should not price products more than 12000 else it will not be competitive enough.


    (January 24, 2013 - 10:48 pm)

    price should 11 k


    (January 24, 2013 - 10:13 pm)

    ill buy it but under 12000

    (January 22, 2013 - 7:51 pm)

    Please provide provision to upgrade A110 with jelly bean. I assumed that it can upgraded with jelly bean when I purchased A110 last month. Don’t kill A110 its a superb phone.


    (January 22, 2013 - 5:58 pm)

    12000 me price me milega to luga


    (January 22, 2013 - 4:46 pm)

    Micromaxx…. For 3/4 of indian population a phone over 10000 bucks is still a dream….. I was expecting dis under 12000 . I want A116 but at this price it is still a dream for me… b’coz my parents will not provide me 15000 for ‘MICROMAX’…
    And after listening to your aftersale service i’ go with nokia 620 or a samsung phone…..

    Actually I was expecting the same Canvas 2 with a subtle upgrade, canvas2 is looks grate and please upgrade the battery and ram dont kill the canvas2

    Im Android

    Micromax A116 canvas is great phablet to own without any price band!!
    Micromax ROCKS!!!


    (January 22, 2013 - 3:06 am)

    Actually I was expecting the same Canvas 2 with a subtle upgrade – 1GB RAM, Jelly Bean, 2500 mah battery and the same dual core processor priced at 11k. I personally wouldn’t shell out 15k for just the Quadcore craze as it’s an overkill and too early to support any content on Play Store. Micromax! Please don’t kill Canvas 2 as it’s still got immense potential to sell.
