end mobiles in Indian market, and today one of the most expensive mobiles in Indian market is
Lately there is another company following the same strategy as Samsung. Micromax started their
journey in mobile sector through low-end, economical handsets. Soon enough though, they moved

What does Galaxy Grand Offers?

Galaxy Grand is a typical Samsung phone; with a large screen, high quality camera, and all the
useful features (read gimmicks) from Samsung's own Galaxy Note II and S III.
Samsung Galaxy Grand has a 5-inch display . It has rather become the default screen
size for most of the mid and high-range smart phones these days. Such a large screen gives users
amazing experience while watching videos and playing games with high quality graphics.

Talking about Operating System , Samsung has tried to keep up with the ever-so-changing Android ecosystem.
Galaxy Grand comes with latest version of world’s most popular OS – Android
4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Jelly Bean makes the experience fast and smooth. It has many improvements over
previous versions of Android such as better accessibility, better network connection facilities,
gesture keyboard, updated lock screen, faster face unlock etc.
With this, Samsung’s own UI called Touchwiz UI gives even better user experience. It is smooth,
fluid, and ultrafast. Moreover, Galaxy Grand has set of applications developed only for Samsung
devices such as S-Voice that makes this smart phone different from others.
Galaxy Grand comes with 1.2 GHz dual core processor . This combined with 1GB internal RAM makes
this device very powerful for normal as well as advanced users. The processor supports high-end
gaming, HD video playback, better multi-tasking etc.
The 8 MP primary camera with flash makes this device even more awesome. Photo quality is great
and it supports 1080p full HD video recording. Galaxy grand also has a secondary camera, which is of
2MP. Quality of secondary camera is more than enough for video chatting, and you can even capture
some decent pictures through it.
Overall, Samsung Galaxy Grand tries to give you almost everything that is available currently in
mobile industry.

How Canvas HD A116 makes any difference

If you have already casted your vote in favor of Galaxy Grand, you should read this before making
any conclusive decision. Micromax this time with A116 has surely hit the right chord and has amazed
everyone by delivering a classic smart phone in Indian market. Canvas HD is beautiful, powerful, and
has all the latest features a smart phone can have.
Just like Galaxy Grand, Micromax A116 also has 5-inch screen display . It is large and gives great
viewing experience. The display is LCD and it uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology to give faster
response and high quality color reproduction. The display also has HD resolution of 1280X720p.
Canvas HD comes with 1.2 GHz quad core processor . Four cores make it better than dual core engine
that runs Galaxy Grand. Quad core processor helps in faster multitasking. It is especially better for
high end gaming as quad core is great for graphics rendering. Because of such a strong engine, apps
can run more parallel threads and thus the response time is better for A116.
Micromax A116 runs on latest Android Operating System , which is Jelly Bean 4.1.2. However, one
place where Micromax lacks is a unique UI for their devices. Because of this Galaxy Grand holds an
upper hand when it comes to User Experience despite both devices running on same OS.
When it comes to camera , Canvas HD A116 gives hard competition to Galaxy Grand with its 8MP
primary camera. You can record HD videos with 720p resolution. There is also a secondary camera of
2MP for video calling/video chatting.

What are the prices?
When it comes to price, Micromax A116 Canvas HD blows Grand away with its attractive price tag of 14,000-15,000/- while Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos is a bit pricier at about INR 14,999.
Looking at the bigger picture, we can say that though Canvas HD is new and stands alone without a big
brand name attached to it, it seems to give better deal than Galaxy Grand.
