Micromax is no doubt the fastest growing mobile brand across the globe and if any brand (other than iPhone) can challenge Samsung, then it must be Micromax. This phone is a specs-cum-review of Micromax's upcoming mid-range smartphone Canvas HD or A116.
This February of 2013 is going to be very hot from the point of view of Mobile and Technical gadgets. Samsung is ready with its mind blowing upcoming mid-range smart phone Samsung Grand.This phone is expected to attract people who love the brand prior to the item. The phone Samsung Grand is announced with the attractive prize of Rs 21,500 only. One more phone is there which is going to give tough competition to Samsung Grand and that is non other than from my favorite brand Micromax, the phone is Micromax Canvas HD or Micromax A116. Here is technical specifications of the Micromax A116 or Canvas HD :

Operating System (OS)

Micromax A116 is announced to come with latest Android version Jelly Bean (Android 4.1). The operating system is the main system which handles various processes and decide the fate of the phone. Micromax is hand to hand with Samsung Grand in this regard. Android 4.1 is very good. It is packed with almost all software needed by the people of 21st century.


If something makes a phone remembered for long duration then it is its Hardware. When you want to change a phone ? Simply when you start feeling, its outdated. There are two main things in a phone viz. Software and Hardware. You may update the software officially or unofficially but this is not the case with Hardware, Hence hardware is the only thing that will decide whether a phone is outdated ?

Truly speaking, I don't think Samsung Grand is anywhere in race with Micromax A116 when it comes to hardware. The main component of a phone's hardware is its processor. Bigger the processor, more instructions a phone can execute in unit time. Leave the technical thing aside, generally more smooth operation a bigger processor will give. Micromax A116 is packed with the mind blowing 1.2GHz Quad Core processor which is the beauty of the phone. You will have the real beauty of the processing if Micromax will be able to truly utilize its operating speed. The Processor is MediaTek’s MT6589 SoC ( it contains a quadc-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU ) comes with PowerVR Series5XT GPU which will give excellent video playback (even 1080p).

GPS (A- Support Available)
Bluetooth 3.0
Accelerometer and Proximity Sensors
8MP Primary Camera
VGA Front Camera
Dual SIM (GSM & 3G Support)
FM Radio

Micromax A116 is really HD phone. It has a screen of 5.0inch with 1280*720 resolution (Yes, You read it correct it is 720p). A full HD IPS panel screen anyone would love to have. A 16M color full capacitive touch with multi touch features.


Micromax is going to rock the market from this launch. From current trends it seems that in future there will be Micromax and Samsung, fighting for the top brand in Market and being low cost manufacturer Micromax may beat Samsung. For 14,999 Rs only Micromax A116 is a must have smartphone for anyone who is planning to have a smartphone for first time. Thumbs Up for Micromax A116.
