Micromax had recently launched its A116 Canvas HD smartphone with huge fanfare. The company had started taking the pre-booking of the smartphone on February 14, 2013 and it was expected to start retailing in the market shortly after that.


We at mobotalks.com have listed 5 reasons why you should opt for Micromax A116 smartphone –

Micromax Canvas HD Price

Micromax A116 HD is a must buy given at Rs 14,000. Featuring all those above mentioned features, the global smartphone vendors would have priced it atleast at Rs 25,000 but given as Micromax being the smartphone vendor, its priced at sub Rs 15,000. At this price you get quad core phone, 8 mega pixel camera with dual LED flash, better display and better battery life of the device.

Micromax Canvas HD Hardware

Micromax has really taken the leap with this one, stuffing the best possible hardware numbers into the Micromax A116 Canvas HD. Starting with the 720p HD IPS LCD, a Quad Core processor, 1 GB of RAM and a bigger 2000 mAh battery. You also have an 8 MP camera which has Full HD shooting capabilities and a a Front camera which is 2.1 MP.

However these are all numbers, and numbers honestly don’t mean anything in the real world. Mediatek is the real juice behind Micromax’s Smartphone lineup and the latest Mediatek MT 6589 is what powers the Micromax A116 Canvas HD. In a real world scenario the quad-core chipset to the quad core found in bigger brands is like comparing a 2 Liter TATA Engine to a 2 Liter Engine from Audi / BMW (or something similar to get the idea). There is no denying that the Chipset is a really capable one and features a lot of grunt under the hood, but serious compatibility issues arise with untamed hardware. The specs really put Micromax in the Spot and major companies have started to take notice of the Brand and feel the need to combat the marketshare that is currently owned by Micromax.

Micromax A116 Battery Life

A116 Canvas HD by Micromax is packed with 2100 mAH battery which provides 5 hours of talk time or 180 hours of standby time. The SAR value of the device is still to be determined but battery life is still good just like the Galaxy Note first generation phone. Maybe this is one reason you should have Micromax Canvas HD Phone.

Micromax A116 Display

The 720p display on the Micromax Canvas HD is a starting benchmark for the company and many others to follow. Although many of the so called “Indian Manufacturers” have launched competition products, no one has done what Micromax has with the A116 Canvas HD and launched a 720p equipped device. A truly gorgeous display that livens the usage of the device tenfold, and the sheer experience is enough to want us to recommend this phone over any other in the same price bracket.

The colors are vivid, black levels are extremely deep and the phone has impressive viewing angles. Apart from that the touch screen is fast and extremely responsive and coated with some pseudo “Gorilla Glass” called Layer Protect, that is an alternative to the real Gorilla Glass. The Micromax A116 Canvas HD display also manages to hold its strength outdoors and impressively in a brightly lit environment. Owners will love watching movies and playing games on the device simply because of the experience that they will get from a 720p crisp display on the Micromax A116 Canvas HD.

Micromax A116 will a Quad Core Phone

Quad core smartphone is the adopted technology by smartphone giant and mostly all vendors have their flagship as quad core phone. Micromax gets the privilege to become the first Indian smartphone vendor to announce a quad core phone by launching A116. Yes, Canvas HD will be a quad core powered smartphone clocked at 1.2 Ghz Cortex A7 with MediaTek MT6589 chipset.

Micromax A116 Canvas HD Camera

Up until last years companies were not really focusing on the quality of the cameras in their devices. The new range of Smartphones come from companies that have understood the need for good photography and video capability on their devices. The Micromax A116 Canvas HD shoots impressively clean and vivid 1080p HD video that is for the most part of it Lag Free and accurate.

The Camera autofocuses surprisingly well, and it seems that the optics on the smartphone are undersold, images are crisp and almost always in focus. The focus field is vast, and close up shots make available a good amount of Bookeh or Background Blur making the subjects of the images stand out. The camera experience on the Micromax A116 Canvas HD has not only been improved from the previous version, but has been overhauled, and is truly amazing.

Coming to the price, any 8 mega pixel phone is priced atleast at Rs 26,000 or more but Micromax has brought the whole device at Rs 15,000, after all the price of the device matters.

You can use these reasons to help persuade yourself if you’re on the fence, you can tell me all the reasons you won’t buy the Micromax A116 Canvas HD, or you can tell me all the reasons I missed if you’re going to buy it anyway. Enjoy!
