Micromax Canvas A116 HDSeems like Micromax is all busy trying to make things better rather much better!! Soon after launching Canvas A110, it has launched the Micromax Canvas A116 HD. The latest offering from Micromax features a 5-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a high definition resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which is truly fantastic. So, if you are already planning to bet your money on this one, you might also want to check out the XOLO A1000 offering the same screen resolution. No doubt then, it seems to be a tough contender for the Canvas A116 HD. Both handsets cost you almost the same – something around Rs. 14,000. Here is a quick specs comparison.

XOLO A1000One factor that differentiates the two is the processor. The A116 Canvas HD features a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor while the XOLO A1000 is powered by a 1 GHz Dual Core processor. But, that’s not affecting its performance in any way. The internal memory is 4 GB which can be further extended using a MicroSD card. One feature that offers the A1000 an edge over the Canvas HD is the 2100 mAh battery. Other specifications are almost identical.

Talking about the looks, it seems like Micromax has really worked hard on reviving the design which will definitely not disappoint you. The XOLO A1000 might roughly remind you of the Samsung Galaxy SIII. So, in terms of design, the duo seems to be right on target.
