For those smartphone lovers who live in India there is good news in the form of Micromax A116 Canvas HD. This is one of the most awaited smartphones that is recently launched all over India. If you are wondering about the market value of Micromax A116 Canvas HD then you should know that the company has sold more than 9,000 units on very first day of release. If you have a budget fewer than 15000 Rupees then Micromax A116 Canvas is the best option for you.
We are going to review the specs and design of this smartphone to see how much value it can offer to a consumer.
Build and Design
If you have seen the A110 of Micromax then you should feel happy that A116 is not only the upgraded version but also offers better quality and improved specifications too. The build quality of A116 is simply awesome. The front of A116 is quite similar to that of A110 but when it comes to rear cover, Micromax has made certain changes. One might think that the handset launched by Micromax resembles with HTC One X too. Keeping the demands of Indian consumers in mind, Micoromax is offering two GSM SIM slots in this smartphone and the microSD slot is also in between both SIM card slots. The problem is that, you will have to remove the battery in order to change the SIM card or microSD card.
Interface and Features
Finally, IPS panel has made a return in Canvas HD this time. The good thing is that, instead of offering WVGA resolution, A116 offers a full HD display of 1280×720 pixels. Can you imagine a smartphone having HD display and it sells under the bracket of 15,000 Rupees? One noticeable thing is that, the photos look more vivid as compared to videos. After all the screen results are not as perfect as they look on paper. If you are a fan of latest Android OS then you will be happy to know that A116 offers Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2. However, Micromax has tweaked the OS a little bit to make it compatible with their device.
The default Jelly Bean music player manages the entire music playback in this smartphone. However, you can install a third party media player of your choice from Google Play store too. In the beginning, the audio will be of average quality but once you will tweak the equalizer, the audio experience will become better. If you hate missing the sound alerts of your smartphone then this is not going to happen with Micromax A116 HD because its rear speaker is quite loud. The internal memory of the smartphone is 4GB which is quite good for anyone to install their favorite apps. The microSD slot can support up to 32 GB.
Talking about Indian market, people in this country cannot live without a high quality camera and that is the main reason why Micromax offers a 8MP camera in A116.
The overall experience of using Micormax A116 HD is pretty awesome. If you are looking for a new economical smartphone then you should go for A116.
