Micromax A116 Canvas HD Review

The mobile feels great in hand and the 5 inch display is pretty good while watching videos and using some applications. Of course specially for Gaming. At this price point this is more than a budget phone in terms of specifications. Jelly Bean is so special than its previous android versions and it is one of the main reason that I choose micromax a116 mobile.


Micromax should really make this handset available in stores sooner, than letting the demand rise everywhere. It gives a chance for more online sellers sell it for some huge prices adding several thousands to the handset. Which is not at all good. Samsung should really reconsider the price points for phones they call as budgeted phones. The hardware and spec is important for a Smartphone which assures whether it will receive some updates in the future or not.

This light weight, thin and feature rich Android Smartphone will rock in terms of sales without any doubt. A116 is without a doubt the best quad core android mobile phone available till date. I would recommend this handset for people who are looking for best android mobile under Rs 20,000 (approx 400$) budget. If possible visit the nearest Micromax store and get your hands on Micromax canvas HD A116.

    1. hello bro, after sales service seems bad as i read it so many reviews. as it is a new phone so far it didnt make me to take it to service center 😉

      quad core processor can be felt when you use many apps and the jelly bean is awesome in the hardware. i would recommend canvas hd than canvas 2 but many are getting refund from snapdeal when they order it now. so try to get it from local stores bro.
